New, 51 comments

A loaded slate to end the work week.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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!

Ending the work week with a busy slate. Seven NBA ‘Cats in action on Friday night. Check back later to see how they did, and see the schedule for the weekend.
