During Sunday's North Carolina-Kentucky charity alumni game, former Wildcats star DeMarcus Cousins put on a show—from three-point land.

At one point in the game, Cousins made a defender pay for giving him space by knocking down a three-pointer from the UK logo. It looked like a normal jumper for the Sacramento Kings center.

This wasn't a lucky shot. The 6'11", 270-pound Cousins was knocking down threes like it was his job:

Boogie talked about his range after the game:

The alumni game featured plenty of recent Wildcats and Tar Heels. Players such as Eric Bledsoe, Karl-Anthony Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Aaron and Andrew Harrison joined Boogie on the Wildcats squad, which was coached by New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis. The Golden State Warriors' Harrison Barnes and James Michael McAdoo were among those who suited up for North Carolina.

According to Kyle Tucker of the Courier-Journal, Cousins posted 33 points, 18 rebounds and six assists in Kentucky's 122-115 victory. Here are some more highlights from the game:

Per Tucker, the event raised about $1.1 million for charity.
