Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng had thoughts about the Kentucky-Louisville game

Today in college basketball, Kentucky defeated Louisville. Karl-Anthony Towns (noted Kentucky alum) had some playful words for Gorgui Dieng (noted Louisville alum). Dieng was ready with the comeback.

In an excellent game of college basketball today, #12 Kentucky took down #16 Louisville 75-73. The Minnesota Timberwolves happen to feature centers who attended both schools: Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. Towns was active on twitter throughout the game, and after the Wildcats pulled the win out, he decided to give Dieng some sass.

Dieng, who had not tweeted since December 8, was ready for it and had one heck of a haymaker for Towns.

To be fair to Towns, his comeback was also top-notch...

...but the internet pretty decisively called the fight in Dieng's favor. It is fun to see these Wolves players have some fun with each other, and for Dieng, who has never seemed like the type to have a shot like this ready to go, this was so well-played. Excellent fun for your Boxing Day.
