More on Calhoun's All-Star Game ...

Among the marquee names expected to be at Jim Calhoun's Charity All-Star Game Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena: 2008 NBA All-Stars Ray Allen, Richard Hamilton and Caron Butler, as well as Ben Gordon, Rudy Gay, Emeka Okafor, Marcus Williams, Charlie Villanueva, Josh Boone, Cliff Robinson, Donyell Marshall, Donny Marshall and others.

The only current NBA-er who isn't likely to attend is Jake Voskuhl, who is putting the finishing touches on building a new house out in Arizona.

Calhoun also was hoping ex-UConn trainer Joe Sharpe would be able to make it, but Sharpe was recently named head trainer of the NBA's new Oklahoma City franchise. (He had been let go by Charlotte at the end of last season).

The event is sanctioned by the NBA, so organizers aren't allowed to reveal the names of the players who are coming. In fact, a couple of players have been asked by their respective teams not to play, so they may just warm up for a bit and watch the game from the bench.
