FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas All-American Moses Moody became the 13th Razorback to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft when the Golden State Warriors selected the 6-6 guard with the 14th overall pick. He is the first Razorback Golden State has ever picked in the NBA Draft.

Moody, the first "one-and-done" in Razorback history, additionally becomes the sixth Razorback to be an NBA Lottery pick since its inception in 1985 and is the 40th Razorback selected in the NBA Draft. At pick number 14, Moody ties Ronnie Brewer Jr., for ninth-highest Razorback taken and is the first lottery pick since Brewer in 2006.

Moody just completed a sensational freshman campaign with the Razorbacks. Not only did he compile an impressive list of individual honors, but Moody also led Arkansas to the program's first NCAA Elite 8 since 1995, a 25-win season - just the program's 13th 25-win season in 97 years of basketball - and a top 10 final national ranking.

Moody led the team, ranked third in the SEC and was fourth among NCAA freshmen in scoring (16.8 ppg). He was 1 of 3 NCAA freshmen to average over 15.0 points and 5.0 rebounds; as 1 of 3 players in the SEC (only freshman) to average at least 16.0 points and 5.5 rebounds; was 1 of 2 players in the SEC (only freshman) in SEC top 20 in: PPG (3rd) • FG% (9th) • 3PT% (17th) • FT% (9th) • RPG (17th); and was 1 of 3 players in the SEC (only frosh) to shoot at least: 42% FG, 35% 3PT AND 80% FT.
