John Calipari couldn't be with his players on NBA Draft Night---or Graduation Night, as he calls it---but he was quick to reach out after Tyrese Maxey, Immanuel Quickley and Nick Richards heard their names called. Normally he would be bouncing around the green room giving hugs and celebrating with the families; this year, however, Calipari was cooped up in his office back in Lexington, waiting to Facetime his guys once they got the good news. When he did, UK was nearby with an HD camera to capture those moments. As you can see, Richards was really letting those emotions out. His longtime girlfriend, former UK volleyball star Leah Edmond, tweeted about a night of happy tears. Congratulations to all three draft picks and thanks to UK for letting the fans behind the scenes to see the genuine reactions.
