It will be very hard for Kentucky to replace a talent like Karl-Anthony Towns, who was drafted first overall in Thursday night's NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Wildcats guard Tyler Ulis believes there is an incoming player who can help fill the void, however: center Skal Labissiere. Ulis compared his new teammate to Towns, which is a good omen, since he correctly predicted Towns going No. 1 in the draft the first time he played with him.
Ulis does add that Skal "is not Karl," as not to put undue pressure on the seven footer, but if he's even close, Kentucky could have another special season.
