Yes, you read that right. Davis, who is becoming one of the top players in the NBA, put up 53 points and 17 rebounds the Pelicans win while Booker, who won the NBA Three-Point Content earlier this month, was no slouch, nearing a triple double with 40 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.
Recruits that are looking at Kentucky might want to consider these stats and this fact about the program: 28 former Wildcats are now playing in the NBA.
