The schedule and the current rosters for each game for the Big Blue All Stars are below. In addition to the former University of Kentucky basketball players, the Big Blue All Stars have made two additions to the roster, Kenneth Faried and Sheldon Mack. Kenneth Faried, former Morehead State great and all time NCAA rebound leader, was recently drafted as the 22nd pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Sheldon Mack, former Bryan Station High School and Butler University standout lead Butler to back to back Final Four runs and was recently drafted 34th overall in the 2011 NBA draft. Faried and Mack will join an all star line up of former University of Kentucky players that will play in 5 exhibition basketball games against University of Pikeville, Alice Lloyd College, Georgetown College, Union College, and Mid Continent University. DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo are still making their final decisions on which games they will be playing in. According to Jeff Sheppard, Big Blue All Stars direc- tor and event promoter, DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo should also be added to the rosters below by mid week this week. “I am scheduled to speak with DeMarcus Cousins’ agent again Monday afternoon and I hope to finalize Cousins’ participation on the Big Blue All Stars tour by noon on Tuesday. Rajon Rondo is also very interested in playing in at least two games on the tour as well and I am working hard to get Rondo on board with us for a few games.”
