In the midst of this, Harrison Barnes and James Michael McAdoo, former North Carolina Tar Heels, took the time to entertain basketball fans at an alumni charity event in Lexington, KY against former Kentucky Wildcats.
The exhibition game had an abundance of NBA players as Kentucky's roster featured Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins and Karl-Anthony Towns among others. Pelicans' Anthony Davis served as the UK coach.
Meanwhile, Barnes poured in a game-high 39 points and had another typical highlight for UNC, which fell short 122-115.
"At the end of the day, it’s bigger than us as individuals," McAdoo said. "We represent the University of North Carolina and I know that’s something I’ll never take for granted. To be able to do that every summer, that’d be crazy."
