UK Calls Press Conference For Men's Basketball Players

There will be a men's basketball press conference on Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the Joe Craft Center men's basketball practice gym with UK head coach John Calipari and underclassmen Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Doron Lamb and Marquis Teague.

It is expected that the players will be announcing plans to enter the NBA draft.

The five underclassmen made up Kentucky's starting lineup in the 2011-2012 season and helped Kentucky win its eighth national championship.

Davis, a 6-foot-10 power forward, won The Associated Press, Naismith and Wooden awards for national player of the year, the first player from Kentucky to win the honors. He also won Defensive Player Of The Year and SEC Player and Freshman Of The Year. He is expected to be the first pick in the NBA draft.

LEX 18 will provide live coverage of the news conference both on the air and on
