Kentucky’s Karl Towns showed off his best volleyball impression against North Carolina on Saturday in Lexington.
The Kentucky Wildcats have been so dominant this year thanks in large part to their physicality. In the paint there are very few that can challenge Karl Towns and company in the paint.
Well, this is something that North Carolina’s Nate Britt should have remembered on Saturday. He ultimately didn’t, and he ended up paying the price for it.
In the second half as the Tar Heels were trying to mount any sort of comeback, Britt did indeed try to drive the lane against Kentucky to see if he could get a floater to drop in for two points.
Karl Towns was having absolutely, positively none of that.
Okay, Nate, did you learn your lesson? To that point, hopefully other teams around the country learned a valuable lesson here; don’t challenge the Wildcats in the paint because the chances are that it will not end well for you at all.
Kentucky has controlled most of this game on Saturday, however the Tar Heels have showed at times that they have the ability to make a run to try and turn this into a game.
But every time they get something going, there is something there from Kentucky to stop the momentum.
