Helping the community: The college basketball rivalry edition

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that basketball is a game.

That’s especially true when alma mater is involved. To keep perspective on a heated rivalry and give back to the community, the Lexington-area alumni clubs of UNC and UK have agreed to a fun bet on Saturday’s game.

The stakes: community service. The winning team’s alumni club gets to pick an organization/event for which members of both alumni clubs will volunteer together.

Rivalry aside, two of the greatest college basketball traditions in the country face off on Saturday. As far as we’re concerened, the community will be the ultimate winner.

We’re all proud alumni and we wish both of our teams luck on Saturday. But since this is my blog, GO HEELS!
