Six Kentucky Wildcats were selected in the 2015 NBA Draft, highlighted by Karl-Anthony Towns going No. 1 overall to Minnesota.
It was a memorable night that saw four Cats drafted in a first round, tying the 2005 North Carolina Tar Heels for the most ever in the draft lottery as all four went within the first 14 picks.
Aaron Harrison didn't get drafted, but he was invited to join the Hornets' summer league roster. If he makes the team, he'll team up with former Wildcat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Congratulations to all of the Cats and good luck in their NBA endeavors.
