Wildcats Randle and Young go in 1st round of NBA Draft

Whats up UK faithful if you weren’t like me and have social lives you might have missed the NBA Draft last night. If ya did know this the Cats continued their domination of the NBA Draft landing both Julius Randle and James Young in the first round. Big Julius will be heading out where the stars shine bright and teaming up with Kobe Bryant as the Lakers Took Randle 7th in the Draft. This marks the 5th straight year that a UK player has been drafted in the top 10 picks. Sharp shooter James Young was selected 17th overall and heads to the Boston Celtics and will be teamed in the back court with another Wildcat Rajon Rondo. Counting this year’s draft UK has had 18 players selected in the first round of the Coach Cal era, and with possibly 10 NBA ready  players on next year’s squad I’d look for that number to rise a little higher!
