Bennedict Mathurin, Christian Koloko and Dalen Terry will represent the Arizona Wildcats at the 2022 NBA Draft Combine.

They are three of 76 players set to compete at the event, which starts on May 16 from Chicago.

The trio helped Arizona win the Pac-12 and enter the NCAA Tournament as a No. 1 seed.

Mathurin, a 6-foot-6 guard from Montreal, Canada, spent two years with the Wildcats and was the Pac-12 Player of the Year in 2021-22.

He scored 17.7 points per contest to lead the team while shooting 45.1% from the floor and 37.2% from three. Mathurin also earned Second Team All-American honors.

Koloko started all 37 games at center for Arizona this past season. He was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and Pac-12 Most Improved Player of the Year.

The 7-foot-1 big was an offensive force down the stretch, scoring 16.6 points per game during the postseason.

Koloko played three seasons at Arizona.

Terry was another key contributor during tournament games, scoring 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in the Pac-12 Championship matchup against UCLA.

He averaged eight points on 50.2% shooting (36.4% from deep) in 37 games in 2021-22.

The Phoenix native played high school ball at Hillcrest Prep.

An ESPN mock draft by analysts Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz on Friday had Mathurin landing 12 overall, Koloko at No. 36 and Terry No. 43.

The NBA Draft is set for June 23.
