Karl Anthony-Towns maintained a 4.0 GPA in his spring semester even while Kentucky reached the Final Four.
"I take everything very serious," Towns said during an appearance at the Dick's Sporting Goods' Sports Matter panel Tuesday. "For me, making sure that I had great grades at Kentucky was a very key component of my freshman year. It's going to be every year. Just wanted to make sure I could play and be the best I could be, especially in the classroom, and I'm glad I came out with a 4.0 GPA."
Towns graduated from St. Joseph High School in Metuchen with a 3.96 GPA.
