VIDEO: Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns reacts to Kentucky-LSU replay during coronavirus suspension
NBA on ESPN shared a clip of a pretty hyped-up KAT, as he was watching a replay of his alma matter Kentucky Wildcats taking on the LSU Tigers.
The 24-year-old Timberwolves center was clapping and screaming “Go to work!”, as he intensely cheered for his old team. Kentucky did run away with a 79-76 squeaker over LSU last February 21.
Looks like KAT found something to do while he's at home 🤣🤣

Karl-Anthony Towns, meanwhile, enjoyed a productive one-and-done career with the Wildcats in the 2014-15 season, notching 10.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game.
He declared for the draft the following year alongside teammates Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, Dakari Johnson, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, and Willie Cauley-Stein. KAT was picked number one overall by the Timberwolvesolves in the 2015 draft.
The 6-foot-11 Dominican-American has since evolved into one of the best big men in the league today. The two-time All-Star, however, figured in an injury-riddled season this 2019-20, appearing in just 35 games and averaging 26.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 rejections.
