Representatives from 13 NBA teams were in Rupp Arena to watch UK and its roster of players who will, one day soon, be playing in their league. None more so than freshman Anthony Davis, the prime candidate for the overall No. 1 pick next year. Or, as one scout heading to his seat before the game put it, “there’s him, and then there’s everyone else.” That statement was even more true 40 minutes later, after Davis put together a near-triple double in UK’s 81-59 win over St. John’s.
