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.

The 6-foot-10 Davis averaged 14.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7
blocks, becoming a dominant defender after growing 7 inches from
the start of his junior year of high school.

He led off what could be a busy Thursday night for the Wildcats,
who could have five first-round picks.
