Nation-leading 13 Wildcats set for NBA playoffs


So, it should come as no surprise that UK is also the most represented college in the 2020 NBA Playoffs, which begin Monday from Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.


Three teams have multiple Wildcats, led by the Oklahoma City Thunder with three (Hamidou Diallo, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Nerlens Noel).


Booker was joined on the first team by Lillard, T.J. Warren (Indiana), Luka Dončić (Dallas) and James Harden (Houston).


And with the NBA regular season now fully complete, six Wildcats (Booker, Davis, Fox, Gilgeous-Alexander, Julius Randle and Karl-Anthony Towns) led their respective teams in scoring in 2019-20, far and away more than any other school.


When the 2019-20 season began, a staggering 29 players on NBA opening-day rosters (including two-way and inactive lists) played and finished their college basketball careers at Kentucky.


Before coming to ABC 36, Bryan was a morning anchor and reporter at WXXV News 25, our sister station in Gulfport, MS.
