UK Coach John Calipari tweeted Sunday that he and his staff would be on the road recruiting to close a disappointing weekend.

Calipari turned up in New Jersey, where he saw UK commitment Karl Towns tally 34 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks for St. Joseph’s in an 85-49 victory over Spotswood.

After the game, Towns tweeted, “Was great to see my future coach Coach Calipari at my game. Wish I was suiting up for #BBN but I got business to finish with #stjoesbball :)”

In his last three games, Towns has averaged 32.3 points, 18.0 rebounds and 5.7 blocks. St. Joe’s is 19-4 this season (and 19-3 with Towns in the lineup). The Falcons’ next game is Wednesday.

Towns is UK’s only commitment from the class of 2014.

  1. Cal’s dreaming of the future ’cause the present is a nightmare!

  2. Completely agree but this kid is an amazing young talent ….like Wiltjer but more effective offensively and much more than physically visible on defense…lot of Rasheed Wallace and Dirk comparisons
