Kentucky basketball’s 2022 NBA Draft night included a pair of first-round picks: Shaedon Sharpe to the Portland Trail Blazers and TyTy Washington to the Houston Rockets.

That kept the Cats in the lead for all-time first-round picks while second-place North Carolina was shut out and saw its ACC rival, Duke, add four to its total and move from third to a tie with the Tar Heels.
