Former Wildcats Davis, Miller help charitable organization

One day after announcing he's headed to the NBA, UK's Anthony Davis took time Wednesday night to meet fans and help a good cause. Davis and teammate Darius Miller talked with WKYT about their futures.

Fans on South Limestone started filing into Tin Roof as soon as they saw the two players. Former Wildcats Darius Miller and Anthony Davis were there for good reason - to help a friend raise money for the American Heart Association.

"It's a great cause. It's really going to helping people's lives, so I feel like anybody who can do anything about it should help," said Darius Miller.

"I always want to show support to my teammates. That's what I'm trying to do here this evening," explained Anthony Davis.

There's no doubt the two are close. Miller and Davis both spent time at the fundraiser for the American Heart Association at Tin Roof. Despite all that, they say they still weren't sure who was headed to the draft.

"I thought a few of them would stay, I was kinda surprised, but I know they're making the best decision for them," said Miller.

Before both players go pro, though, they helped friend Regan Judd.

"Because of what I went through I've made the American Heart Association, my passion for that, my mission in life," said Judd, a former heart patient, "if it wasn't for the American Heart Association it would have been impossible to have my surgery."

Judd has already raised $1,500 for the American Heart Association.

The American Heart Association will hold their annual Heart Walk this Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium. Activities start at 9 a.m.
