- I have it on good authority that there will be a Transy-UK banquet at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 30, in honor of the basketball game on Nov. 2. Both the Transy and UK basketball teams and coaches will be in attendance. It will be a major fundraising opportunity for the Transylvania Alumni Association. There will be a time window reserved for only the Transy community to buy tickets, but after that it will be opened up for the rest of the Big Blue Nation. Tickets will be $150.
