The Big Ten has always been a steady contributor to the NBA, and this year is no different with plenty of Big Ten student-athletes officially entering the NBA Draft. BTN will help tell their stories when it airs a special NBA Draft preview edition of the Big Ten Basketball Report at 9 p.m. ET on Friday. The special will include interviews with some of the Big Ten's top draft entrants and also will give viewers an inside look at the draft process.
For the 13th time in program history, Purdue had two players taken in the same NBA Draft in 2011.
However, for the first time since 1952, a Boilermaker pair was taken by the same team, as JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore will both head to Boston as the newest members of the Celtics.
Johnson was drafted 27th overall by New Jersey and immediately shipped to Boston, while Moore was selected by the Celtics at No. 55 overall.
