Best in the country and No. 1 and 2 in the NBA draft. The celebration goes on for Kentucky’s kids.
The Wildcats became the first school to have the top two picks and tied a record with six players taken overall Thursday night.
the New Orleans Hornets made the long-expected selection of forward
Anthony Davis with the first pick, Charlotte followed by taking fellow
freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
“It’s crazy,” Davis said.
“Michael is a great player. We have two down and four more to go.
Hopefully, all of them will go in the first round.”
They didn’t, the only disappointment for the Wildcats.
They settled for four in the first round and a tie with North Carolina,
which won the race to four picks — all in the top 17 selections.
