Former UK Basketball player, Alex Poythress, said on Twitter that he’s thankful for a successful surgery today for his mother and sister.

His mother, Regina, has been dealing with kidney failure for some time and they recently found out that his twin sister, Alexis, was a match. So, today, a kidney transplant took place and it appears that all is going well in the early going.

Poythress’ former coach, John Calipari, even asked earlier in the day for prayers and well wishes for the family.
