Four former Wildcat basketball players have a new kind of dunk to show off with their doughnut shop next to the University of Kentucky campus.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports is one of the franchise co-owners of the Dunkin’ Donuts in Kennedy Bookstore and will host a celebratory coffee toast with ex-Wildcats and business partners Walter McCarty, and Ron Mercer.

The grand opening is at 9 a.m. EDT Monday. Mashburn’s company, Fast Break Doughnuts, operates four Dunkin’ Donuts in central and has a kiosk in during basketball games and other events.
