John Calipari recaps Kentucky’s 2015 NBA Draft on Twitter

The Kentucky Wildcats had a great night during the 2015 NBA Draft. In total, six players heard their names called throughout the night.

Karl-Anthony Towns went No. 1 overall to the Minnesota Timberwolves, Willie Cauley-Stein, Trey Lyles and Devin Booker also went in the lottery, while Andrew Harrison and Dakari Johnson were second-round picks.

Following the draft, head coach John Calipari took to social media to congratulate his players and to share his thoughts on the night.

Six guys get drafted and tie a record, four lottery picks, and another No. 1 pick – it’s been another unbelievable night.

I'm proud of the guys. Our job as coaches is to help these kids realize their dreams. I’m so happy that a lot of lives were changed tonight.

I'm disappointed Aaron didn't get drafted, but he will be fine. He will be on a summer league team fighting for a position on an NBA team.

Calipari takes pride in preparing his players for the next level, so it was a very successful night for his program. Will Kentucky be able to top these results in the 2016 draft? Only time will tell.
