    It would be great to know how many are still in the league. Does anyone out there know how to look such a statistic up?

    anon @ 12:46… i thought that same thing but then i looked at the 1988 draft at arizona had 2 picks with ucla and duke having 0… so i think they just used 89 so it could be 20 years…

    UCLA leads all-time with 51 and Arizona is 5th with 35. The years are from 1949-2008.

    This is before this year’s draft.

    So now its UCLA: 53 and Arizona is 37.

    Not knocking anyone, both schools have a accomplished a lot.

    According to that link from the official athletic site, UCLA has had 106 players selected in the NBA draft. UCLA also has the most first round picks over the last four years.

    Even with the artificial and Arizona-friendly start date of 1989, UCLA will surpass the mildcats within a couple years or so.
