LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky coach John Calipari believes his latest class of talented recruits can keep the Wildcats in the national championship discussion.
Playing pickup games against those newcomers has No. 1 overall NBA draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns just as convinced of the Wildcats' potential.
Back in Lexington this week to help with Calipari's summer camp, the Minnesota Timberwolves' top selection is impressed by the mix of returnees from last year's 38-1 Final Four squad and another group of prized prospects. Leading Kentucky's class are Canadian forward Jamal Murray and 6-foot-11 Skal Labissiere, from Haiti.
