The sides are set for this weekend’s all-star game featuring several Kentucky basketball recruits.
The full roster for the Under Armour Elite 24 game had already been released, but the company announced the actual team assignments Monday. The Elite 24 game will be played at 7 p.m. Saturday in Brooklyn and shown live on ESPNU.
The slam-dunk contest and skills competition will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday on ESPNU.
The only change from the previous roster release is the addition of 2015 big man Cheick Diallo, who was named as Karl Towns’ replacement. Towns — UK’s only commitment so far from the Class of 2014 — will be busy working out with Orlando Antigua and the Dominican national team.
