Karl Towns Jr. Put On A Show Today

That’s the face of a scary person.

That’s the face of a scary person.

 

Karl Towns continues to improve and amaze each time he steps out on the court. Towns Jr., a 7-1 C ranked as the #8 player in the country by 247 Composite Rankings continued that nearly 3-year long string of dominance of New Jersey High School basketball earlier today by coming up just shy of his 2nd career QUADRUPLE-DOUBLE in a 69-53 win for his St. Joseph’s (NJ) team. 

Towns Jr., who was UK’s first commitment in the 2014 class, finished off the game with 29 points, 21 rebounds, 11 assists, and 6 blocks. This kind of performance is referred to by anyone with eyeballs as “domination”. Towns is now averaging 22.2 PPG and 13.8 RPG in a 5-0 St. Joseph’s start to the season. Great basketball player, even better kid. Towns will be a fan favorite in Lexington whether he stays for 9 months or 4 years, that much is certain.

Towns’ reaction to coming just shy of his 2nd career quad-dub? Disappointment.

    Can’t wait for KT to be a Cat but 6 isn’t really that close to 10. If 6 were 9 then he’d be close and a Hendrix fan.
