The team spends the morning giving back with Samaritan’s Feet




The team has today and tomorrow off from games, but spent the morning giving back to the Bahamian community with Samaritan’s Feet, an organization that distributes shoes to impoverished children around the world. The players washed the feet of local children and helped them into new shoes, a humbling experience for this young squad. Here are some pictures, and I’m sure we’ll hear more about it from the UK Athletics crew later today.







Karl Towns even gave his own socks to this young boy:

    It’s 1:01PM and it only feels like there should be a game on, but there’s not. I think I might be spoiled now…

    What a lot of haters don’t know is Coach Cal teaches these kids so much more about life than just the game of basketball, always good to see them humbled and giving back.

    This team is special. I am positive that they don’t even care if this was shown through the media, these are good young men. Enjoy watching them play this year, before you know it they will be gone. Go CATS!

    Reminds me of Polson on the African trip last summer. These kids are bringing home more than just a few basketball wins.

    Should have took a few cases of those 40-0 t-shirts with them ,along with the new 12-0 t-shirts just to save the expense of shipping them in a few weeks

      Should “have took” dumb posts from Louisville trolls out of the comments section.

      By 12-0 are you referring to the Louisville football shirts from last year? Weren’t yall claiming you’d go undefeated in that crappy high school conference you were in? Still couldn’t do it even with that schedule. You still mad about being 1-6 against us in basketball since Cal’s been here? I would be too if I were you.

      Don’t forget about Teddy for Heisman shirts also.
      On the other hand, uvel would be stealing those shoes and selling them for weed downtown

      When in the hell did anyone say anything about 12-0?!?! I’m pretty sure everyone’s expecting 4 wins, maybe get a little lucky and steal a game or two to get to 5 or 6 – AT BEST.

      Keep trolling, Tard, but focus on the real conference you’re about to enter.

      Congrats though; it only took about 109 years to be accepted into one.

      LOL louisville fans talk about going undefeated every year in football just to get beat by bums. Every. year. And take a look at the name guys, “FootballFan”. They’ve officially given up on basketball. They “don’t even care” about basketball anymore.. LOL.. beat em into submission #L1C6

      As if that powderpuff schedule they’ve played up until this year didn’t lend itself to going undefeated anyway.. lol.. Good thing they always choked while I was living in the louisville area. Don’t think I could take another day of seeing Oldsmobiles with wheels that are more expensive than the car itself with full size loserville flags hanging out of them..

    This team is so special. What a great group of guys.

    On another note, that kid will be able to use Karl’s socks as sleeping bags for years to come…

    That means Karl was wearing socks in sandals. Okay in Kentucky, but unacceptable Oceanside!
