Nearly half of the University of Kentucky's basketball team said Thursday they will turn pro, following a season in which they suffered their first loss in the semi-final game of the NCAA tournament five days ago. The seven who said they will enter the NBA draft include three who will be one-and-done with their college careers: center Karl-Anthony Towns, forward Trey Lyles and guard Devin Booker.
