NEW YORK (A)-Austin Carr,
Notre Dame's All-American guard,
was the surprise first pick, by the
Cleveland Cavaliers, in the Na-
tional Basketball Association col-
lege draft yesterday but it was
Buffalo and Chicago which drop-1
ped the big bombshells by selecting
Spencer Haywood and Howardf
Michigan's Dank Fife, former
Wolverine captain and guard, was
drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks
in the tenth round yesterday. Fife,
who had a season scoring average
of 13.2 was the last player to be
Buffalo waited until its third
r daily
choice in the second round before
gambling with the controversial
Haywood, who only last Friday
had been awarded to the Seattle
SuperSonics by the NBA in an
out-of-court settlement.
Commissioner Walter Kennedy,
conducting the draft via a tele-
phone hookup with the 17 league
cities, immediately warned the
Braves that Haywood was not
eligible to be picked.
"As I understand the action,
taken by the Board of Governors
by which the dispute with Hay-
wood and Seattle was settled,,
Haywood is not eligible for the
draft," Kennedy said.
"If you insist on drafting him,
I believe you will be wasting a
draft pick. But if you insist, I
will record that fact without con-
ceding' that you will have any
rights to deal with Haywood with-
out Seattle's consent."
Buffalo replied that it would
stand by the choice, apparently
gambling that the 6-foot-8 star
forward who had jumped the rival
American Basketball Association
to Seattle, might in some way be-
come available in the future.
Only two picks later, on the
32nd selection, Chicago pulled an-
other shocker by choosing Villa-
nova's Porter, whose signing by
Pittsburgh of the ABA had been
announced only hours earlier.
Cleveland turned away from the
big man in selecting the 6-foot-3
Carr, who averaged more than 30

points during his fabulous career
with the Fighting Irish.
Sidney Wicks, the 6-8 All-
American who led UCLA to its
fifth consecutive NCAA title last
weekend, had been expected to be
the No. 1 selection, but when the
Cavaliers passed him by, Portland
immediately grabbed him as the
No. 2 pick.
Cleveland had won a coin toss
with Portland last Monday for the
right to pick first, -and might well
have gone for 7-2 Artis Gilmore
of Jacksonville had he not signed
last Tuesday with Kentucky of
the ABA.
Buffalo, picking third, selected
7-0 Elmore Smith of NAIA cham-
pion Kentucky State and Cincin-
nati followed with a minor gai-
ble by choosing 6-7 Ken Durrett
of La Salle, rumored to already
be promised to the ABA.
Jim McDaniels, Western Ken-
tucky's 7-foot All-American center
who certainly would have been
one of the top selections, was not
chosen until the second round
when Seattle made him the 23rd
McDaniels reportedly already
has signed with Carolina of the
ABA which held the first three
rounds of its draft last January,
getting a two-month head start
on the NBA.
Two other UCLA starters were
selected in the first 18 picks, as
Detroit, No. 11, took forward Cur-
tis Rowe and Cleveland opened
the second round by nabbing 6-9
center Steve Patterson, the hero
of the Bruins' title victory over
Villanova when he scored a col-
lege career high 29 points.
McDaniels also was joined by
two other teammates from West-
ern Kentucky's third-place NCAA
finishers when Boston, picking
10th, grabbed Clarence Glover and
then selected Jim Rose as its pick
in the second round.
Dean Meminger of Marquette
was the other All-American se-

lected in the first round. New York I
made him the 16th choice.
NBA clubs picked 168 players in
10 rounds in yesterday's draft
which lasted one hour and 50
minutes. The draft will be com-
pleted today.

Buck express drops
Warriors, 104-90

By The Associated Press
MADISON-The explosive Mil-
waukee Bucks used a third-period
offensive spurt to claim a 104-90
victory over the San Francisco
Warriors last night in a National
BasketballAssociation p 1 a y o f f
The victory gives the Bucks a
2-0 lead in the best-of-7 Western
Conference semifinal series.
Down by 52-51 midway in the
third quarter, the Bucks ripped
off a 21-7 surge that sent Milwau-

kee into a 72-60 advantage going
into the final period.
Forward Greg Smith sparked the
Bucks, scoring seven points and
coming up with numerous re-
bounds in t h e seven - minute
Lew Alcindor scored 26 points
and Bob Dandridge 21 to pace
As crucial as the Bucks' offen-
sive spark was a strong second-
half defensive effort that held the
Warriors' Nate Thurmond to only
four points in the final 24 min-
Alcindor, the NBA's Most Val-
uable Player, spent considerable
time on the bench in foul trouble.
The 7-foot-2 center picked up his
third personal midway in the sec-

ond period and his fifth with 5:19
to play in the game.
With Oscar Robertson carrying
the scoring load, the Bucks jump-
ed off to a 23-16 advantage before
the Warriors used deadly- free
throw shooting to pull within five
at the end of the first period.
San Francisco, hitting a miser-
able 25 per cent from the floor in
the first quarter, sank 10 of 20
field goal attempts in the second
to grab the halftime lead of 44-43.
Colonels crunch
MEMPHIS - The Kentucky
Colonels withstood a Memphis

victory over the Pros last night.
The lead changed hands 27
times-with Memphis leading 53-
52 at the half-before the Colonels
took a late 10-point lead.
The Pros shaved it to 109-106
and Jones added a foul shot in the
closing seconds but Kentucky held
the ball the rest of the way. Walt

EXCELLENT - Elliot Legow and Dave Mildner. Legow and
Mildner both show an amazing depth of knowledge about inter-
collegiate athletics and its importance in relation to the general
student body. Mildner has served on the Advisory Committee
on Recreation, Intramurals and Club Sports. Legow is very
familiar with the workings of the Athletic Department. Each
would like to de-emphasize the importance of athletics, while
representing the general student view.
EXCELLENT - James Epstein. Although only a freshman,
Epstein has shown an interest in and knowledge of c 1 u b
sports. He is the only candidate who bothered to submit a
platform, and we feel his presence would be a valuable addition
to the Committee.
