Kentucky Basketball: John Calipari Says He Lit A Candle For Each Of UK's 7 Draft Prospects In Church Today

Kentucky will be well-represented in tonight's NBA Draft. Versatile big man Karl-Anthony Towns is projected to the No. 1 overall pick, and center Willie Cauley-Stein is a guaranteed lottery selection. Guard Devin Booker and Trey Lyles will likely hear their names called early, with Dakari Johnson and the Harrison twins also looking to find NBA homes this evening.

UK head coach John Calipari is in New York City for the event --the draft is at Barclays Center in Brooklyn--and he took some time out of his morning to stop by the famous St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan, where he said some prayers for his 'Cats.
