A few days ago, the University of Kentucky and University of North Carolina played a friendly alumni charity basketball game. The event easily sold out, with both Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe representing the Suns for Kentucky.

The Kentucky team also featured NBA players such as Terrence Jones, DeMarcus Cousins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein and Trey Lyles. Anthony Davis, the former first overall pick in the 2012 draft, coached the Kentucky team to a 122-115 victory.

On the UNC side, Warriors wing Harrison Barnes scored a game-high 39 points on 14-30 shooting.

DeMarcus Cousins was clearly the game's most dominant force with 33 points and 18 rebounds, but Bledsoe provided 12 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists while Booker scored 14 points on 3-8 shooting from deep. Bledsoe shot just 1-7 from behind-the-arc, so perhaps that still isn't a strength of his going into the 2015-16 season.

Look below for a couple different videos of game highlights. Considering how well Bledsoe seems to get along with Jones and Cousins, perhaps he could even do a bit of recruitment for Phoenix.
