Fultz Becomes First NBA Draft No. 1 Pick in Husky History

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – University of Washington standout freshman made history on Thursday night as he was drafted as the number one overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. Fultz is the first Husky to be drafted number one and the first player in the Pac-12 to go first since Bill Walton (UCLA) did in 1974. Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) is the only other Conference of Champions member to earn a no. 1 pick as he was selected in 1969.
