Karl Towns, Aaron Harrison, Kyle Wiltjer salute Alex Poythress in heartfelt video

Saturday marked the final game for Alex Poythress in Rupp Arena, and the Kentucky Wildcats made sure he went out with one more great memory.

UK composed an awesome video for Alex during his Senior Day ceremony, and it featured former Cats sharing their thoughts on why Alex is such a great teammate and brother. Among them were Minnesota Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns and Charlotte Hornets guard Aaron Harrison, who played with Alex during last year's memorable season.

Even current Gonzaga forward Kyle Wiltjer, who played on season with Alex during the 2012-13 campaign before transferring, gave his thoughts on why Alex is such a special person.

Here is the full video, courtesy of Kentucky Wildcats TV:

When you've got former players speaking so highly of a guy, especially someone like Wiltjer who's now playing for a different school, it shows you how much Alex has meant to UK and the Wildcats during his tenure.
