NEWARK, N.J. — Best in the country and Nos. 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 Thursday night.

After 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.”
