LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky coach John Calipari will donate proceeds from a charity softball game featuring Karl-Anthony Towns to Louisiana flood relief.

The coach says his foundation is working with the American Red Cross to help flood victims through a text campaign. Calipari expressed sadness Thursday about the level of damage he's seen, saying "no donation is too small" for the relief effort.

The softball game Sunday will include former Wildcats Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Towns, the NBA Rookie of the Year. If there's a rainout, Calipari says ticket holders can watch an upcoming Kentucky practice.
