THE MICHIGAN DAILY

BUT C.J. NOW TOP LA. ROOKIE

ABA
From Wire Service Reports
NEW YORK - The Denver
Nuggets, last season's West Di-
vision champions in the Ameri-
can Basketball Association, took
7-foot Marvin Webster, the "Hu-
man Fraser" from Morgan
State, as the number one pick
in yesterday's draft of college
and high school players and ex-
pressed confidence they could
sign him. M n
C.J. Kupec, Michigan's co-
MVP and scoring leader from
last year's Big Ten runner-up
team, was selected in the fifth
round by the St. Louis Spirits.
"I promised that the guy we
drafted No. 1, we'd sign, and
we are going to," said Carl
Scheer, Denvers general man-
ager of Webster.
"WE WOULDN'T have draft-
ed him if we didn't think we
could sign him," said Coach
Larry Brown. "It would seem
silly without a good indication."
The Nuggets admitted they
had met recently with Webster
and his agent, Norman Blass,
in New York and that contract
negotiations would begin imme-
diately.
Kupec, drafted earlier by the
NBA's Los Angeles Lakers,
who yesterday obtained Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar from Milwaukee,
is now the top rookie in L.A.'s
camp as Louisville star Junior
Bridgeman and UCLAn Dave
Meyers are off to the Beer
Capital of the country. So, Ku-
pec's bargaining power has just
increased markedly.
Kupec was unavailable for
comment.
THE NUGGETS were award-
ed the first pick in the draft-a
bonus selection-on a ruling by
the league after Denver ceded
the draft rights of Marvin
Barnes to St. Louis last year.

Spirits
St. Louis also had a bonus phasec
choice, as a result of the loss of cat-qui
Billy Cunningham to the Na- North
tional Basketball Association NCAA1
last season. But the Spirits de-
cided against exercising that Long
option this year. However, they take
still cold use it in the 1976
draft. Basel
Following St. Louis' pass, the
Virginia Sqcires, the team with B
the worst record in the league OMA

Jenkins outlasts Miller
to capture Philly Classic

The

PHILADELPHIA (RP) - T o m
Jenkins survived a double-bar-
reled challenge in the double-
round windup with scores of 69
and 72 and claimed his first
rofessional victory yesterday
in the weather-worried P h it-
adIelhia Golf Classic.
Jenkins, another in the army
of University of Houston grad-
uates now playing the tour,
put together a 72-hole total of
275, nine under par on th e
White-marsh Valley Country
Club course, a damp little 6,-
687-yard layout that ranks as
Jenkins' favorite.
His gritty, scrambling finish
in a drizzle left him one stroke
clear of on-rushing Johnny

Miller, who took second - and
regained the season's money-
winning lead - with a pair of
68s on the closing day.
Miller's 276 total was one in
front of disappointed B o b
Wynn, a 35-year-old tour regu-
lar who has yet to win. Wynn,
playing I1P) hours in front of
Jenkins, had a two-stroke
lead with two holes to play
but he took an eight on the
par-four, 462-yard 71st here.
