    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kentucky has pushed the press conference back to 7 o’clock Tuesday at which all five of its underclassmen are expected to declare for the NBA Draft.

    Freshmen Anthony Davis is projected as the No. 1 overall pick and fellow frosh Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is projected by DraftExpress.com to go at No. 3.

    The site has sophomore Terrence Jones going at No. 11, freshman Marquis Teague at No. 18 and sophomore Doron Lamb at No. 33.

    Senior Darius Miller is slotted to go at No. 35.

    “I expect six first-round picks (from the same school), for the first time in the history of our world,” Kentucky coach John Calipari told CatsIllustrated.com. “And I’ll say this: that may be the biggest day in the history of our program. I know you’re all going to be mad now.”
