UK Alumni Charity Basketball Game Canceled

The 2014 UK Alumni Charity Basketball Game, which had been slated for August 24, has been canceled, according to the university.

They said anyone who had bought tickets for the game will be fully refunded.

According to UK, two factors contributed to the game’s cancellation: several players were unavailable due to prior commitments, and many players were uncomfortable taking part following Paul George’s recent injury at the Team USA camp.

UK officials said tickets that were purchased in person should be returned to their point of purchase. Tickets bought online or over the phone will be credited back to the buyer’s card.

The Rupp Arena box office is open Monday through Friday from 10am until 6pm.
