Teammates again go in top 3 at NBA draft

NEW YORK (AP) When Kansas teammates Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid were taken in the top three picks of the NBA draft Thursday night, it was the fourth time that happened since 1980.

Wiggins was the No. 1 overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Embiid was taken No. 3 by the Philadelphia 76ers. Duke's Jabari Parker was taken second by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Kentucky's Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were taken 1-2 in 2012.

The other college teammates taken in the top three since 1980 were Emeka Okafor and Ben Gordon of Connecticut in 2004, and Jay Williams and Mike Dunleavy of Duke in 2002. They were both selected second and third.
