Rex Chapman is back.

The Kentucky basketball legend will be the new co-host for the UK Radio Network’s pregame basketball show this season, making his debut this Sunday for the exhibition against Clarion.

Chapman played at Kentucky from 1986-1988, scoring over 1,000 points in his career. He was named a third team All-American his sophomore year.

We caught up with Chapman about his new role, and he says he is just happy to be back working closely to a program that gave him so much.
