Hornets select Davis with No. 1 pick in NBA draft
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New Orleans Hornets have selected Kentucky forward Anthony Davis with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.
Davis will begin his pro career in the same city where he ended it with a national title. College basketball's player of the year as a freshman was the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four despite shooting just 1 for 10 from the field in the championship game, grabbing 16 rebounds and blocking six shots in the victory over Kansas.
