Hoops for Haylee


Somerset —

Martin didn’t play basketball in high school, but has watched plenty of Calipari’s teams and others over the years.
“I’m just a lifelong UK fan,” he said. “I think I know a lot about basketball. We’ve got a lot of guys who play in rec leagues.”
He added, laughing, “Most of us are ready to go, even if we’re not in the best shape. It’s all in fun, but everyone knows it’s for a good cause.”
Dana Whitis said that the local community has been “awesome” in support of the drive to get young Haylee the help she so dearly needs.
“It’s a huge blessing,” she said. “Words cannot describe how thankful I am.”
The game is at 7 p.m. Friday.
