The first time since 1986, the top three draft choices are from the same conference - the SEC. It happened in 1986, when Brad Daugherty, Len Bias and Chris Washburn were selected out of North Carolina, Maryland and N.C. State.

Pk        Tm                 Player                        Pos        School
7          Golden State   Harrison Barnes         PF        North Carolina
9         Detroit             Austin Rivers              PG        Duke
13        Phoenix          Kendall Marshall        PG        North Carolina
14        Milwaukee      John Henson              PF        North Carolina
17        Cleveland       Tyler Zeller                 PF        North Carolina
26        Indiana          Miles Plumlee             PF        Duke
33        Cleveland       Benard James             PF/C    Florida State*
43         Atlanta          Mike Scott                  PF       Virginia

*When James was introduced, he was given a standing ovation with cheers of "U-S-A, U-S-A." James, twenty-seven, is an Iraq war veteran.

Notably undrafted: Terrell Stoglin of Maryland.  Oops.
