Gotta see some nice “threes” and jams!
UofL Red team tops UK Blue
On New Year’s day, some former Universtiy of Kentucky Wildcats and University of Louisville Cardinals suited up with some WHAS11 local celebrities to raise money for the WHAS Crusade for Children.
WHAS11’s Jamie Martin joined the red team and Andy Treinen the blue team, but most of the points were made by the former players like the blue team’s Jeff Sheppard.
He and other players said the Friday game was a good chance to reunite with teammates and play for fans.
The red team took the win, 95 to 86.
The event raised somewhere between $3,000 and $5,000. The exact total has not yet been calculated.
