Jared Prickett said he would pass to McCarty every time rather than try for score a lot of points.Jerry Tipton
Simmons played more than I recall, averaging 4.8 minutes-per-game in 21 appearances for the Cats in 1995-96.

Pretty entertaining to watch the 96 team press as much as they are.  They hold a 51-17 lead mid-way through the 3rd quarter.

They are letting Nazr Mohammed sit on the bench now, just like in 1996.Jon Hale
So, yeah, the ’96 team is treating the Calipari All-Stars about like it treated everybody else. 44-15 at the half.Brett Dawson
’96 team ahead 44-15 at halftime. Tepid applause from crowd of about 1,000Jerry Tipton
The ’96 Cats are playing expert old man basketball. Just raining threes. Not much above-the-rim stuff. Father Time can’t rob the jumper.Kyle Tucker
Delk can clearly still shoot, drilling back-to-back 3′s.  96 team leads 76-25 in 4th quarter.

Calipari Experience players have emptied the bench. .  . literally.  There are 12 players on the court for them right now.

And if the 1996 team had to play 12-on-5 the whole game … I’d still take the 1996 team.Aaron Smith
The ’96 team is facing a 3-3-3-3 zone. The Fantasy Experience have 12 players on the floor with time running out in the fourth.Kentucky Athletics
Final score is 103-43, with the hard fought win to the 96 championship team. 
Reality check for the guys who did the John Calipari Fantasy Experience: their All-Star team loses to the ’96 Cats 103-43.Brett Dawson
The campers now have TWELVE guys on the floor against five from the ’96 squad, which is still swishing threes. http://pic.twitter.com/eDXskQiHKyle Tucker
