Freshman Anthony Davis will make his late night national television talk show debut tonight, appearing as a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel show which will air tonight at midnight on ABC.

Davis is in Los Angeles to be presented the John R. Wood Award at 36th Annual Wooden Award Gala.

The gala, which will be honoring Davis and the John Wooden All-American Team, will take place Friday April 6 at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.

Davis led the Wildcats in scoring (14.2), rebounding (10.4), blocks (4.7) and field goal percentage (.623), while helping to lead Kentucky to its eighth national championship.
