John Calipari spends his Sunday watching Karl Towns

John Calipari was in the stands Sunday night to watch UK signee Karl Towns, Jr. earn MVP honors of the Hoop Group Tip-off in West Orange, New Jersey, reports Zagsblog.

Towns scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the St. Joseph’s, which won 78-68 in the finals.

John Haley of the Star-Ledger also reports on Towns’ play, writing “The game was much closer than the final score suggests, as the teams were tied, 60-60, with 3:55 left. At that point, the Kentucky-bound Towns took over and went on a personal 9-3 run to help St. Joseph, which trailed by as many as 11 points in the second quarter, breathe a sigh of relief.”
