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!

Here’s how each of the eight NBA Wildcats did over the weekend. Three of them — Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), Saddiq Bey (Detroit Pistons), and Eric Paschall (Golden State Warriors) — are back in action tonight. Check back later to see how they did.
