Basketball's top ranked teams
have become a target range this
season for upset minded upstarts.
The result has been confusion as:
to how good these top teams really
are.
Bearing the brunt of the pot-
shots have been Duke and Jack-
sonville. Only powerful and well
balanced UCLA, Marquette, South-!

trade threats
By The Associated Press
Basketball commissioners Walter
Kennedy and Jack Dolph both is-
sued warnings that the profes-
sional sports scene may be in for
more battles and controversies in
statements made yesterday.
Dolph, commissioner of t h e
American Basketball Association
said that ABA teams will take re-
taliatory measures against Na-
tional Basketball Association
teams because of the Spencer
Haywood case.
"I predict retaliatory measures
will be taken by ABA clubs against
NBA teams whenever possible,"
Dolph warned. "And I predict it
will greatly increase the ABA's
intensity as far as this year's col-
lege graduating class is concern-
ed."

remain with unblemished records
among the pre-season's top picks.
Duke (8-4), ranked high in the
top ten before the season, prompt-
ly lost four out of its first seven
starts. They recovered well, rally-
ing to a five game win streak. All-
American candidate Randy Den-
ton leads the Blue Devils with 22.9
points and 13.2 rebounds per con-
test.
The first to stun Duke was Vir-
ginia which t o o k advantage of
numerous miscues for a 75-70 vic-
tory. The other losses w e r e to
tough South Carolina, Wake For-
est, and North Carolina.

(7-2) is pointing towards a re-
match with those mighty Bruins.

good Western Kentucky (9-1)
team rolled over the giants from
Jacksonville by 13 points with a
giant of their own, 7-0 Jim Mc-

Coach Adorph Rupp has been
winning ball games at Kentucky
for quite a few years and appears
to have the material to possibly
stop UCLA's bid for an unprece-
dented fifth national title despite
two early season snags - losses
to Purdue 89-83 and Austin Carr
led Notre Dame 99-92 - and the
graduation of All-American Dan

teams knocking each other off.

the question is: will the pattern of
