Former University of Kentucky basketball stars Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Davis, and DeMarcus Cousins are participating in this year’s first ever Cats Legends Youth Fantasy Experience that is happened next month on September 12-13 in Rupp Arena. At this event kids will have an opportunity to play with their team on the UK courts, get Nike gear, have pictures with the star players and even get their games called by official ESPN analysts. They will also get to have a tour of the locker room, have a photo album made, and interact with the players on a up close and personal basis to work on their basketball skills. This event is open to boys and girls between the ages of 10 to 18 and costs a total of $1,995 per kid.
Cousins was selected in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings with whom he still plays with today after his days at UK. Davis went to the University of Kentucky from 2011-2012 before being picked as the 1st overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornet, and is also the two-time NBA blocks leader of 2014 and 2015. Towns is the newest player to the NBA of the three men as he was selected as the 1st overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves during the 2015 NBA Draft, and spent the last couple of years playing for the Wildcats during 2014-15.
All three of the players are set to make this special weekend in September an incredible experience for the players who are able to attend, and hopefully inspire them to continue on with their athletic careers. It is happening the weekend of the 10th and the 11th in the Rupp Arena.
