On Tuesday, the Bluegrass Sports Commission and Global Sports Management announced that will play host to an exhibition game between the New Orleans Pelicans and on Oct. 17. This comes on the heels of Monday’s announcement by UK Athletics that Oct. 16 will be the date for Big Blue Madness.

The exhibition game, which is scheduled to tip at 7 p.m., is especially of interest to UK fans, as they will once again get to cheer on former Wildcats Anthony Davis of the Pelicans, and Willie Cauley-Stein, and Rajon Rondo of the Kings. The Pelicans also feature Tyreke Evans, the No. 4 overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft who was coached by John Calipari at Memphis.
