Kentucky's starting 5 declares for NBA draft
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP)
Kentucky's starting lineup of three freshmen and two sophomores did most everything together en route to the school's eighth national title. Now, they will each go their separate ways in the NBA.
The group came into the season largely untested before ascending to No. 1, winning the Southeastern Conference in dominating fashion and capping an NCAA tournament run with a 67-59 victory over Kansas in the title game.
The departures mean only freshman Kyle Wiltjer remains from the rotation with a new class of highly touted recruits joining coach John Calipari next season.
