Kentucky Fans Will Love This Tweet From Karl-Anthony Towns

Tonight is the final home game of the season for Kentucky basketball. The Wildcats host Ole Miss on Senior Night.

There's a catch though. Kentucky doesn't actually have any seniors, even walk-ons.

The class of Kentucky players that would have been seniors this season arrived in Lexington in 2014. What a group they were: guards Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis and forwards Trey Lyles and Karl-Anthony Towns.

All were five-star recruits. All played major roles on the 2014-15 team that started 38-0. All were gone early, with only Ulis staying for his sophomore year. The other three players were one-and-done, as expected.

No Kentucky fans expected these guys to stay four years, but Towns' tweet this afternoon is still pretty funny. It features the four players posing during team photo day as freshmen.

"It’s been a long time coming my brothers, Senior Night is finally upon us #BBN," Towns' tweet reads, with a laughing emoji included.

These four guys weren't at UK for a long time, but they were there for a good time. They left their marks.

Now, all four are earning their keep in the NBA.
