Big men coveted in NBA dra Webber, Bradley expected to be first two selections AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Every year it's the same story: Big men get chosen first in the NBA draft This year, it'll be the same story. The only question is this: Will it be a big man or a giant one? Barring a trade, the answer will be provided by the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night at The Palace. Their top two choices are believed to be Chris Webber, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Michigan, and Shawn Bradley, a 7-6 center from Brigham Young. A longshot could be Jamal Mashburn, a 6-8 forward from Kentucky. Since 1966, only five guards have been selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. Magic Johnson was the last, in 1979, when he left Michigan State early. This year, the draft is top-heavy with size, but some of the best players are guards. Billy McKinney, the director of player personnel for the Detroit Pistons, has 15 players on his short list. Seven of them are guards. Picking behind Orlando are the Philadelphia 76ers and the Golden State Warriors. The Sixers have already declared their intention to choose Bradley if he's available. Otherwise they'll choose Webber. Golden State would love to have Bradley, but they'll probably have to choose between Mashburn and guard Anfernee Hardaway of Memphis State. After that, a lot of teams will begin looking harder at the guards.

The Mendo Mill Orioles weren't hurt by the run, outscorlng Hildreth Farms 11-7 to second-place tie with the Cubs at 5-3 In Colt The Masonite Reds lead the league at 4-1-2. Orioles, Dodgers earn Colt victori By GLENN ERICKSON Journal Sports Edttor EmsrKus Catchers on all four teams had their rugged moments behind the plate Monday night as die Mendo Mill Orioles and Savings Bank Dodgers defeated the Hildreth Farms Cubs and Ukiah Lions A's, respectively, in Ukiah Colt League action at Anton Stadium. Wild pitches and passed balls were the order of the night for all four teams as the Orioles outlasted the Cubs, 11-7, in the opener, and the Dodgers rallied in the final inning to nip the A's, 5-4. In between wild pitches and passed balls, however, there were a number of heavy hitters on each of the teams. A double by Wes Bingham and a 3-for-5 night by quick and busy catcher Brian Camp, who ripped a three-run triple, sparked the Cubs. But that couldn't match the timely power hitting of the Orioles, which moved into a second-place tie in Ukiah Colt League standings with the Cubs (5-3) by its victory. Orioles catcher Beau Johnson also was very busy backstopping pitchers and hit the ball hard. The Orioles got timely hits by Justin Milligan and pitcher Jesse Anderson, who tripled and drove in three runs. Todd Ehmann, Milligan and Anderson scored twice each, and Gregg Burgess three times for the Orioles. Anderson went the distance for the Orioles, surviving on seven strikeouts and some excellent defense, including alert coverage of home plate, despite giving up five hits and 11 walks. In the second game, after leading 2-1, the Savings Bank Dodgers had to come back in the final inning to outscore the A's, 5-4. The A's held a 4-2 lead going into the final inning.

By STEVE GUERTIN Journal sports editor Parnum Paving and the Brothers had a lot to play for Monday night in Men's B-4 Softball. Pamum Paving needed a victory to hang on to second place in the division and keep within a game of front-running Budweiser. The Brothers needed a victory to swipe second place away from Parnum. Pamum Paving looked untouchable through the first four innings, building a 3-0 lead, but the Brothers broke loose for four runs in the top of the fifth and snapped a 4-4 tie in the top of the seventh to win, 5-4. Budweiser scored four runs in the bottom of the second inning and had to hold on for deal life to squeak past Selzer Realty Monday night, winning 4-3. Budweiser still leads the B-4 division with an 11-1 record. Thf Brothers move<J into second place with the win at 9-2. Parnum dropped into third at 9-3.
