LEXINGTON, Ky., April 17 (UPI) -- University of Kentucky star freshmen Anthony Davis and four of his underclassmen teammates declared themselves eligible for the NBA Draft Tuesday.
The quintet lifted Kentucky to its eighth NCAA national basketball title this month.
They appeared at a press conference along with Wildcats head Coach John Calipari.
Davis, named the national player of the year, is widely considered to be an overall No. 1 pick. He averaged 14.2 points and 10.4 rebounds per game while blocking 186 shots during the 2011-12 season.
