NY Makes Sky Apple Of Its Eye
The partisan New York crowd may have wanted the Knicks to select hometown star Walter Berry ahead of Kentucky's Kenny Walker with the team's first-round pick in the Jan. 17 NBA draft, but to Walker, it was a dream come true.
"I was thinking, 'Pick me, pick me,'" Walker, who was the fifth player taken in the draft, told the Lexington Herald-Leader. "My heart was pounding and I got a little nervous."
Although New York assistant coach Rich Adubato said the team would have spent its first pick on Chuck Person had the Auburn star been available, he said the Knicks are very pleased to have the Kentucky All-American.
"We've thoroughly researched him (Walker)," Adubato said. "Basically, we had great interest because he plays so hard. There's not a player in the draft who plays
with more heart or plays as hard."
Adubato said Walker would play small forward should Bernard King be unable to rebound from major knee surgery, and could play power forward should the former NBA scoring champion return to form.
"Kenny Walker's outplayed bigger people all his life," Adubato said. "He'll score no matter who guards him. At small forward, he'll post up. He'll take the bigger people outside."
"My attitude is good and I think I can step in and turn things around with a good attitude," Walker said. "I can rebound at any level. I proved that in college. Because I was doubled and tripled, I'm used to the physical aspect.
"This warms my heart," Walker said of said of his selection. "The Knicks are on the verge of being a great ballclub. With good health.
it's definitely the team of the future.
"I'm beaming with confidence."
Roger Harden, who made a living dishing the ball off to Walker the past two seasons, was picked up by the Los Angeles Lakers in the fifth round. Harden, the 115th overall selection in the draft, must be considered a longshot to make the Lakers 12-man roster.
"I'm just thrilled to be picked." Harden said. "I'm really excited to have been picked by the Lakers. I'm going to give it my best shot."
Harden was the third of four guards to be chosen by Pat Riley's club. Andre Turner of Memphis State and Greg Blaney of West Virginia were selected by the Los Angeles ahead of Harden. Mark Coleman from Mississippi Valley State was taken in the seventh round by the Lakers.
Uptown Ed Lights Up Tokyo
UK Opens Trip With Victory Over Japan
In its first game on the Japanese summer excursion the Kentucky Wildcats defeated the Japanese team 80-55 in the opening game of the Kirin World Basketball-'86 Tournament. The contest took place last Saturday in Tokyo.
Ed Davender led the way with a team-high 15 points followed by teammates Richard Madison and Winston Bennett with 13 and 12 points, respectively.
Even though the Japanese team featured 7-foot-6 Yasutaka Okayama, Kentucky enjoyed a 39-19 rebounding advantage. UK kept Okayama off the boards as the giant from Japan hauled down only one rebound. The Wildcats' rugged man-to-man defense also played a key factor in the victory. Japan was able to connect on only 41.2 percent of its shots from the field (21 of 51).
"Japan's only chance is to play like us instead of laying back in a zone," said Eddie Sutton to Lexington Herald-Leader writer Jerry Tipton. "Their players played as hard as any team we played last season. . .and we went 32-4. Their weapon is quickness. They're as quick as we are but they can't use it sitting in a zone."
Kentucky's starting lineup in its initial encounter in Tokyo's Yoyogi National Gym was: Winston Bennett, forward: Richard Madison, forward; Robert Lock, center: James Blackmon, guard; and Ed Davender, guard.
Though its starting lineup didn't produce to Sutton's needs, the second-year coach then inserted Irving Thomas. Cedric Jenkins. Paul Andrews, Todd Ziegler and Leroy Byrd in the lineup. And with the score knotted at 15-15 at the 8:30 mark he ordered Kenny Walker and Roger Harden into the game.
With a Walker layup the 'Cats proceeded to take command at 21-15. During the first
half's final five minutes UK outscored Japan 16-6. The Wildcats led at intermission, 37-23.
With "Sky" out of the lineup starting the second period, Kentucky increased its lead to 61-42 before the future New York Knick checked back in (8:56).
Leading all scorers was Tomohide Utsumi. who tallied a game-high 26 points.
Wildcats Capture Tourney By Defeating Finland 87-67 Before 8,000 Fans
Playing in its second game in as many days Kentucky captured the Kirin World tourney with an 87-67 victory over Finland. The game was held at Yoyogi National Gym.
"I didn't think we were quite as sharp," said Wildcat coach Eddie Sutton in comparison to the victory over Japan. "We were careless

The Wildcats played all 12 members as they ran their record to 2-0 on the foreign tour. Louisville Male grad Winston Bennett was the game's leading scorer as he pumped in 21 points. James Blackmon contributed 16 points followed by Richard Madison with 15. It was the second straight contest the "Master Blaster" had scored in double figures.
Findland had grabbed an 18-16 lead, but UK reeled off seven straight points to regain its advantage.
A Bennett free throw and a layup late in the first period ignited a 16-6 Wildcat run as the team from the Bluegrass led at halftime, 47-37.
"I have to be the stabilizer," noted Bennett. "I thought that this would be a big game and I wanted to be ready."
Overall, Kentucky outrebounded its opponents 48-26. It was a game in which 55 personal fouls were whistled, with Findland committing 28 compared to the Wildcats' 27.

Upcoming Appointments Crucial To UK Sports
During the next six months, two very vital appointments will have lasting effects on collegiate sports in the deep South and the University of Kentucky in particular.
By the end of this coining winter UK President Otis Singletary's era will be history and about the same time a new leader will be installed as commissioner of the Southeastern Conference.
Just what affect these two changes will have on the University of Kentucky sports scene is subjective at best. SEC's commissioner Dr. Boyd McWhorter's successor most likely will not alter the UK sports scene near as much as the UK presidency, but we'll deal with that situation later in this column.
Finding a successor to Singletary will be the most important appointment concerning the university, both academically and athletically, in the past twenty years.
Time marches on and changing of the guards is inevitable. A year ago Joe B. Hall called it quits and in stepped Eddie Sutton. If the university can achieve as smooth a transistion in presidents as it did from Hall to Sutton, a momumental accomplishment will be in the works.
Singletary announced earlier this year his plans to retire from the presidency next spring and become a professor on the Lex ington campus. He will be 65 years old at the time.
While the UK president has attracted his share of criticism during almost two decades as head of the state's flagship university, no one can deny that he truly captained his own ship. He listened to everyone but knelt to no one.
Such a strong, independent stand has created more than one enemy for Singletary but the man has withstood the test of time. Never, not for one moment, has anyone questioned who was and is the president of the University of Kentucky. That, in itself, is the ultimate tribute to him.
To say Singletary has been perfect would be a bit naive.
Perhaps his fierce conviction of not win ing and dining state legislators to attract huge state tax dollars was not a wise decision. Singletary's academic and philosophical up bringing-emphasized a more sophisticated approach in dealing with lawmakers who make such fiscal decisions. Unfortunately Kentucky politicis dictate other maneuvering:
He has also experienced more than one man's share of problems. There have been numerous crises ranging from a troubled tobacco research program to losing a multi million dollar coal research project to UK's biggest rival, the University of Louisivlle
In sports, there have been the good times and bad. During his tenure, Singletary has been boss to three different basketball coaches and four football coaches.
.Singletary had barely learned his way around the Lexington campus before bumping into rookie head football coach John Ray who has just arrived on campus a few months before Singletary. Ray, the ex-Notre Dame assistant who was known as a defensive
whiz, was hired to turn around the sagging football fortunes after Charlie Bradshaw called it quits when the UK administration offered him only a one-year extension on his contract at the end of the 1968 season.
The apparent new committment in whisking a big-time Notre Dame employee sat well with the new prez, because it was common knowledge that Singletary liked his football just like fine wine, aged with winning tradition in a highly competitive spirit and highly envied by others.
It appeared to be the makings of a long and successful marriage. Singletary was an extremely popular man around the Commonwealth (to sports fans) because he represented the opposite of his full-time predecessor.
Singletary took over the job from acting president Dr. A. D. Kirwan but Kirwan was far from the wolf in this case. Dr. Kirwan agreed to the role of acting president for a short period of time until a new one could be found.
That line of succession came when Dr. John W. Oswald resigned at UK to accept the presidency at Perm State University. During the turbulant Oswald years, sports at UK were more often than not swept under the rug.
Long-time observers claimed Oswald had a tremendous disdain for UK's avid sports boosters because they allegedly always ig nored academics. If Kentucky did indeed fall behind other SEC sports programs, you could point to the 1960s as a major period of decay in Lexington.
Ironically. Oswald moved to one of, it not the hottest, football factories in the country and the marriage at University Park was very successful.
The arrival of Singletary alone failed to bring immediate success. But he did give his blessing to an all-out effort to upgrade UK's football facilities and although John Ray wasn't around to reap the dividents, a young and brash Fran Curci was.
Curci's arrival was the second half of a solid 1-2 punch involving UK's big two sportsbasketball and football in the early seventies.
In 1972, the legendary Adolph Rupp was forced into retirement and replaced by his long-time assistant Joe B. Hall. It was pro bably the most controversial stand Singletary has made on the UK sports scene during his UK era.
Although Rupp had suffered numerous illnesses toward the end of his career, the nation's winningest coach wanted no part of retirement. The state has a mandatory retire ment age of 70. Singletary wanted the Baron to exit with grace and a lot of fanfare but anytime the subject was brought up, Rupp let it be known in no uncertain terms he would not voluntarily retire. . Singletary could have petitioned the Board of Trustees for an exception to the retirement rule, but the UK president was quoted often as saying it would set a terrible precedent with hundreds of other employees on cam pus who would demand equal treatment
Fans around the state became divided and highly emotional. Old-timers fumed about
kicking Rupp out after all he had accomplished for the University. Others said the game had passed Rupp by and that Hall had paid his dues and deserved the opportunity to carry the torch.
Singletary won out in his first major confrontation, but it was a decision which has come back to haunt him in more ways than one. Even today, Singletary is known as much for being the man to say "no" to Rupp as any of the marvelous projects the president has accomplished.
But the achievements have far outnumbered the negatives.
In sports. Singletary has watched over a program which has consistently prided itself in avoiding red ink without having to accept state tax dollars to keep the program in operation.
Expansion on the campus has been widespread. Commonwealth Stadium was built during his tenure and although Rupp Arena is a community facility, its presence was made possible by UK's committment to play its home games there.
One of the nation's finest indoor tennis facilities has just been completed and an Olympic-size swimming facility (at some $6 million) should be completed sometime in the near future. A $4 million football training project is expected to be under construction by late summer.
And that's not to mention a surplus of some S14 million or so in reserves for the athletics department. Singletary has been an outspoken leader with the College Football Association and college presidents' attempt to strengthen academic standards for student-athletes.
On the field, Kentucky has enjoyed three bowl trips in the last eleven years, three Final Four trips in the past eleven years, a national championship and a NIT title.
On the darker side, Kentucky went on NCAA probation back in 1976 in both basketball and football and the basketball program is in the midst of an investigation at this time.
Singletary, by no means, has been all athletics. The University has been gaining rapidly in its attempt to climb the academic ladder of success in comparsion with other highly recognized universities. Its growth in research has been among the nation's elite.
More importantly, annual giving to the university has been breaking records year after year. But now, it's time to look to the future. Who will become the next president of the University of Kentucky? At this point, no one really knows. A search committee, headed by one of the state's most respected civic and educational leaders in Robert McCowan of Ashland Oil, has been named by Singletary to make a nomination to the UK Board of Trustees which will have the final authority.
Rumors are rampant. Some say the new president should be an academic person. Some say the president should be a native Kentuckian or a graduate of UK. Some say the new prez should be a highly skilled corporate businessman. You could go on and
There has been talk of Governor Martha Layne Collins positioning herself for a run at the U.S. Senate seat occupied by Wendell Ford in a few years by becoming president at UK. raising some much-needed dollars for the University and then ride the wave of popularity all the way to Washington. (Ford, according to insiders has already decided to retire in six years if he is re-elected this fall where he has only token opposition).
Those close to the search committee believe it might be as late as January or February before a new president is selected. In future issues, we'll take a deeper look as other names surface as to what impact the new president will have on UK sports.
The UK presidency isn't the only vacancy around these days. Dr. H. Boyd McW'horter announced his retirement as commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, effective this summer.
McWhorter, who has been ill for some time, has performed his chores well. He has been a man of tremendous integrity, a man of his word and most of all, fair to everyone.
Nothing more could be asked for. In his farewell remarks recently, McWhorter assured reporters that he wanted no more power than was affored him during his tenure because, he said, "this conference truly is run by the institutions' presidents and that's the way it should be."
A search committee is expected to submit a nominee to the league's ten presidents sometime during the next two months. Applications are being accepted through a July 1 deadline.
Many names are being tossed around, but . two have been mentioned more often than others and a third should be added to the list.
Those mentioned include Vanderbilt athletics director Roy Kramer, Vanderbilt assistant athletics director and basketball coach CM. Newton, Ole Miss athletics director Warner Alford and Florida State athletics director Hootie Ingram, a former SEC assistant commissioner.
All those above certainly would qualify as worthy candidates for the position but the individual who would give the SEC much-needed instant credibility would be a fellow by the name of David E. Cawood.
Cawood has enjoyed a very successful sports administrative career, stepping carefully up the ladder via Morehead, Arkansas and has dutifully moved up the NCAA ladder in Shawnee Mission to his current position as top assistant to executive director Walter Byers.
While McWhorter has performed his duties (as oudined by the ten presidents) well, there is little question that the SEC has been the laughing stock of the nation along with the Pac-10 in recent years.
The league says it wants to make athletes "student-athletes," but look at the graduation rate. The league says it wants to clean up its cheating image, but look at the court docket in Shawnee Mission! Who's fooling
[On Page 22] Lionel Brings Home The Bacon As Stars Sweep
By Nick Nicholas
The Kentucky All-Stars' 104-99 victory over their Indiana counterparts last Saturday evening at Freedom Hall gave the boys a two-game sweep this year. The weekend before, Kentucky defeated Indiana in Indianapolis, 96-93.
Ballard grad Lionel Bacon, who's headed to Mike PoIIio's Virginia Commonwealth club, led the hosts with a game-high 28 points. It was his clutch free throw shooting near the end of which enabled Kentucky to hold off a scrappy Hoosier bunch.
Indiana's ability to stay within striking distance was because of its nine three-point goals.
"You could never say that the game was over because two shots could totally put a team back in the game," Bacon said afterwards. "(Now) you have to play until the horn goes off."
When did you feel Kentucky had the game won, Lionel?
"When the horn went off I felt comfortable."
Following Kirk Mann's three-pointer which pulled Indiana to within four at 98-94, Bacon was successful on two one-and-one attempts. His Final free throw gave Kentucky a 101-96 advantage with only 28 seconds left.
An Indiana miss followed by a foul all but ended the visitors' chances. Cawood's Nick Sanford sealed a Kentucky win with a pair of free throws with only 18 ticks remaining.
"I feel like I've had a 1,000-pound weight lifted off my shoulders," said Coach Gene Kirk of the Kentucky All-Stars. "All this business of us being one of the best Kentucky basketball teams ever, with such great talent, I just didn't want to louse it up for our state."
A crowd of 12,683 witnessed the 77th encounter between the two states. Indiana leads the series 47-30.
Kentucky's Mr. Basketball, Rex Chapman, countered with 17 points and six assists in 29 minutes of work. Sanford added 14 points and seven boards while Felton Spencer battled for a game-high 12 rebounds.
Chapman's future Kentucky Wildcat teammate, Reggie Hanson, poured in eight points and grabbed six boards.
But it was Bacon who brought home, well. . .the bacon. With Kentucky clinging to a nine-point ' halftime lead (only three, three-pointers by Indiana could tie the game), Bacon would net 16 second-half points. On the night he connected on 10 of 16 shots from the Field and eight of 10 from the charity stripe.
Led by Terry Stevens, a 6-2, 190-pound guard headed for Western Michigan, Indiana almost overcame a 63-47 deficit. But the Kentucky team had too much talent for its opponents to handle.
"We felt in control the whole time," said Chapman, who thrilled the crowd with a spectacular behind-the-back dunk off an alley-oop sequence. "I don't think they thought they could win the game."
Stevens hit on eight of 12 attempts from the field on his way to a 22-point performance. Manns (Michigan State) and future Louisville Cardinal Mark Lenoir added 17 and 15 points, respectively.
Stevens (four), Manns (three) and Lenoir (two) combined to convert nine of 14 attempts from three-point range for the Indiana squad. Chapman and Sanford connected on two apiece from 19'9", while Carl Wallace (Union) and Frank Persley (UNC Charlotte) each canned a bonus shot for Kentucky.
Mark Jewell, Indiana's Mr. Basketball, was held to just 12 tallies.
In the first half Indiana bolted out to a

Kentucky-Indiana Game Notes
Kentucky-Indiana All-Star tidbits:
Proceeds benefited the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation. . .Among those in attendance were former U of L great Henry Bacon and this past season's NBA Championship MVP Larry Bird. Larry's brother, Eddie, was held to two points. Eddie will play for Larry's old team, Indiana State. . .The Indiana All-Star team was in foul trouble for most of the night and eventually hit the limit with 2:45 remaining in the game. . .About the three-point goal, here's what a few Kentucky All-Stars told TCP afterwards. Scott Draud. signed by Vanderbilt, said "I really didn't think it would have this much effect on the game. Offenses are going to start setting up their plays just to revolve around the three-point goal. It will help the teams that are scrappy and have good shooters. The only reason they (Indiana) stayed in the game was because they were nailing the three-pointer." For the night Draud scored seven points and grabbed three rebounds in only eight minutes of work. . .Said Rex Chapman about the three-point circle, "It will change the game a lot. It will open things up to where nobody will be able to get a comfortable enough lead." In the first meeting Chapman scored 34 points. . .Kentucky and Indiana committed 22 turnovers each. . .Kentucky hit on 50.0 percent from the field (36 of 72), while Indiana drilled a 49,4 percentage. . .From the free throw stripe Indiana connected on an impressive 87.5 percent (14 of 15), while Kentucky was 26 of 40 for 65.0 percent. . .Future Kentucky Wildcat Derrick Miller was in attendance and later congratulated the winning team in the locker room. . .After the contest Reggie Hanson had these words to say to TCP. (About Rex and Derrick) "They're crazy and silly. It's fun to be around them because we always have a good time." (About workouts with strength coach Pat Et-cheberry) "Yeah, I've worked with him. . .it's tough. I was hurting a couple of days. It's a whole new ballgame.". . .Kentucky's Miss Basketball, Kris Miller, scored 16 points and Leslie Texas added 14 to lead the Kentucky girls to a 71-67 victory over Indiana, to avenge an earlier 67-63 setback in Indianapolis.
