Mom approves of Karl’s decision

Karl Towns (or is it Karl-Anthony Towns? Karl Towns, Jr.?) is a Cat and his mother, Jackie, couldn’t be happier. Immediately following his announcement, Karl’s mom hugged him, thanking him over and over again for choosing Kentucky.

Jackie, who is Dominican, said she had Kentucky in mind all along but that she also liked Duke. Judging by her reaction, I think it’s clear that mamma knows best.

    She knows what he wants and supports him. Nice to see. So many of these things, you can tell the parents aren’t 100% on board with the decision.

    Next we need word to leak that Brown AND Scott have accepted positions. Then we need a great basketball game where the guys play smarter and work on some fundamentals.

    I don’t even thing the Tubby statements are funny. But I’m mentally ill
    and can’t stop myself.

    The moms ALWAYS seem ecstatic when the kids pick UK. The ladies love our coaches.
    Mrs. Harrison seemed much happier than Mr. Harrison. Great to see him now sporting the blue though.

    9) Mr Harrison should be excited simply from the endorsement deals his boys will get in 2 years. Marketing loves twins.
