Former Kentucky standouts John Wall, Anthony Davis and Darius Miller will all be attending Big Blue Madness on Friday night.

Wall went on Friday morning’s Joe B. and Denny Show and said he plans to be in Rupp Arena for UK’s season-opening event. A New Orleans Pelicans spokesman told the Herald-Leader that Davis and Miller will also be there.

The three players are in Lexington for Saturday night’s pre-season game between the Wizards and the Pelicans. That game will also be played in Rupp Arena.

The most memorable moment of the 2009 Big Blue Madness — John Calipari’s first at UK — was arguably Wall’s introduction, when he broke out the “John Wall Dance” for the Rupp crowd. He played one season for the Wildcats and was taken with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Wall signed a five-year, $80 million contract extension with the Wizards earlier this year.

Davis and Miller helped lead Kentucky to the national championship in 2012. Both players are entering their second seasons with the Pelicans.
