From everything I read, Darrell Arthur and Brandon Rush will be first-round draft choices. If Mario Chalmers is also taken in the first round, would that be the first time KU had three first-round choices in the same season?
Yes, it would be. KU has had two first-round draft choices in three different years, but never has had three in one season. Scot Pollard and Jacque Vaughn were first-round picks in 1997, Raef LaFrentz and Paul Pierce in 1998, and Kirk Hinrich and Nick Collison in 2003.
