Dakari Johnson vs Karl Towns - A battle of beasts in the paint

08/07/2014 04:13 PM

The absence of Willie Cauley-Stein and Trey Lyles has thinned out UK’s front-court a bit this summer, but it’s led to major opportunities for other players.

Dakari Johnson became a breakout star for the Cats down the stretch last season, and it’s continued in the off-season. Freshmen Karl Towns came in with sky-high expectations, and so far he’s meeting the mark.

Neither of the 7-footers are backing down against one another in practice. They’re battling in the paint, fighting for rebounds and doing anything and everything to get an upper-hand.

According to Coach Cal, it’s making them, and the team as a whole, much better each and every day.
