Kentucky forward Karl-Anthony Towns ferociously rejected a shot attempt from North Carolina guard Nate Britt during Saturday's game at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky.

Midway through the second half, Britt drove into the lane with Tyler Ulis guarding him closely and pulled up a few feet in front of the restricted area for a one-handed shot. Lurking near the basket, Towns exploded off the floor and swatted the ball so hard it bounced to halfcourt.
