Kentucky coach John Calipari wants to make sure Rupp Arena is packed for the exhibition game his school was granted to raise money for charity.
Last week, Calipari revealed that the NCAA granted Kentucky a waiver in order to play a special exhibition game against Morehead State in which all the proceeds will go to charity.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Calipari has purchased 2,000 tickets in order for Wildcats students to attend this Monday’s game at no charge.
Coach Cal announces he bought 2,000 tickets for UK students so that they can attend the Morehead State-UK game for free.
