From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
After a couple of games on Tuesday night, the rest of the NBA Wildcats are in action. There are even a few matchups on deck for Wednesday, like Josh Hart (New Orleans Pelicans) vs. Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), as well as Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns) vs. Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks).
