Davis savoring, surprised at attention at Kentucky

Anthony Davis is a fun-loving teenager who has swatted away and dunked enough basketballs to become the most dominant player in the college ranks.

And that's just in one season at Kentucky.

By most accounts he would be the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft if he leaves school.

His steady play and calm demeanor makes it easy to forget he just turned 19 on March 11.

But Davis says off the court he's a laid back guy who likes to pull pranks on his teammates, enjoys math and dabbles with magic.

Kentucky fans hope he has one more trick up his sleeve, maybe two.

The Wildcats (36-2) play in-state rival Louisville (30-9) Saturday in the Final Four for a berth in the national title game.
