Six members of the University of Kentucky national championship basketball team, including five underclassmen, will enter the NBA draft in June.     

Freshmen Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones announced tonight that they will forego their college eligibility and enter the draft, along with senior Darius Miller.

Davis (pictured) is projected to be the top pick in the June 28 draft.

The six players led Kentucky this month to its eighth national championship and its first NCAA title since 1998.
