Last night, Drew told you about the matchup between Karl Towns and Cliff Alexander at the NY2LA Sports Summer Jam on Wednesday. Alexander got the best of the UK commit, posting 19 points and 13 rebounds to Towns’ 14 points. Towns told Rivals’ Alex Kline that he was impressed by Alexander’s game, and wants to woo him to Kentucky:
“He’s so explosive around the basket,” Towns said. “If you let him get the rebound there’s like a 99.9 percent chance that he’s going to go up and dunk it. He’s got strong hands and a great base. I like the force that he puts on the rim. What I really like is how he’s developed, I think his potential is limitless.”
“I think that Cliff is a really good player and that if he were to come to Kentucky, me and him could do really great things together.”
In fact, Towns said that playing against Alexander encouraged him to work on his own explosiveness around the rim. He’ll have plenty of practice soon; training camp for the Dominican Republic National Team starts next week.
