There will be four former Kentucky Wildcats in L.A. for next month’s NBA All-Star Game.
John Wall and Karl-Anthony Towns have been selected as All-Star reserves, joining Western Conference starters Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. It will be Towns’ first trip to the All-Star Game and Wall’s fifth in eight seasons.
This year the Big KAT has averaged 20 points and 12.1 rebounds per game to lead the Timberwolves to the Western Conference’s third-best record. Wall is second in the NBA in assists with 9.2 per game and is scoring 19.3 points a game to move the Wizards to fifth in the East.
Kentucky is just the second school to have four players in one All-Star Game, a feat UCLA accomplished in 1983.
You can see all four Wildcats in the NBA All-Star Game February 18 on TNT.
