NBA UNLV First Draft Picks

Wed, Jun 26, 2013 (7:23 p.m.)

Rarer still is the top-10 pick, which appears to be Bennett’s fate. Coverage from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn starts on ESPN at 4 p.m. Thirteen UNLV players before him have been selected in the first round, seven of them in the top 10. It’s a special fraternity that spans back to 1975 when Ricky Sobers went No. 16 to the Phoenix Suns.
