Kentucky individual player notes


Karl-Anthony Towns is on a roll. Devin Booker’s aim is a bit off. Tyler Ulis doesn’t turn the ball over. Dakari Johnson is hitting the glass. Marcus Lee made a nice contribution at Georgia.

As Kentucky prepares for Florida, a look at some individual player notes:
