It began with a flurry of freshmen and ended with a run on seniors.
 
The first round of the NBA draft is in the books. As expected, one-and-doners Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball led the way. Fultz went to the 76ers, and Ball went to the Lakers.
 
In all, the first seven and 12 of the first 14 picks were freshmen. A record 16 first-year players went overall.
 
Three of the freshmen came from Kentucky. Not surprisingly, Wildcats coach John Calipari was on hand to congratulate the future millionaires.
 
And while some people - among them, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver - may think the one-and-done system needs to be revamped, Calipari disagrees.
 
In an interview on ESPN, Calipari insisted "It's not broken," and said being selected in the NBA draft is the equivalent of putting a player on a so-called lifetime scholarship.
 
Not a single senior was selected in the first 28 picks, but that record-setting drought ended with a pair of four-year players going back-to-back. They were Derrick White of Colorado and Josh Hart of Villanova.
