Few teams in college basketball—and especially not ones with such a rich tradition—have seen more historically great players in the last 20 years than 2012 national champion Kentucky. The Wildcats have turned out NBA talent like few other programs in recent years, and many of those stars have taken their places among the best in UK history.
The latest NBA-bound Wildcat to leave his mark on the NCAA record books is soon-to-be No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis. In one season in Lexington, Davis set a school record for blocks while leading his team to the most wins in NCAA history.
Of course, Davis is just one of many college and pro stars who have worn a Kentucky uniform. Read on for a look at where he fits in on the 12-man roster—from the last two spots on the bench to the starting five—of the best players in Wildcat history.
