Jim Calhoun's seventh annual Charity All-Star Game takes place Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena and will include a star-studded group of former UConn greats.
Expected to appear: Ray Allen, Kemba Walker, Andre Drummond, Ben Gordon and Rudy Gay, along with Richard Hamilton, Caron Butler, DeAndre Daniels, Khalid El-Amin, Donyell Marshall, Donny Marshall, Charlie Villanueva, Scott Burrell, Taliek Brown, A.J. Price, Jerome Dyson, Stanley Robinson, John Gwynn, Lyman DePriest and Rod Sellers.
According to the New Haven Register's David Borges, Shabazz Napier is "hopeful" he'll be able to make it.

Howie Dickenman will coach one team and Tom Moore will coach the other. Kevin Ollie won't play, but instead will help assist Dickenman's team. Jim Calhoun, of course, will be there, as well (provided he doesn't take any bike rides earlier in the day). Typically, he floats around to both benches during the game.
Players on all four of UConn's national championship teams will be represented. Also in the house will be the four national championship trophies, on display up on the concourse.
Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $12-$25 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster. All proceeds will go to the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at UConn Health. The event has raised more than $6.5 million for cardiology research and life-saving care.
