As a point guard at East Tennessee State, Keith "Mister" Jennings won third-team all-America honors during his senior season, made 49.3 percent of the three-pointers he took in his collegiate career, and finished second on the all-time NCAA assist list. But after a poor performance at an NBA pre-draft camp earlier this month in Portsmouth, Va., the 5-foot-7 Jennings still has to prove he can play above the college level. To do that, Jennings has decided to play in the summertime United States Basketball League - where each team will pay a total of just $30,000 in salaries and most players will pursue dreams of playing in the NBA. Jennings was picked second in yesterday's USBL draft by the new local franchise, the Philadelphia Spirit.

The numbers from Portsmouth stared back at Bill Edwards, taunting him. Suddenly, it did not matter that he had scored 2,303 points in four seasons at Wright State, that he had averaged 25.2 points as a senior last season when he was named the Mid-Continent Conference Player of the Year. Suddenly, the only numbers that anyone seemed to notice were 3-for-16 and 0-for-9 in two games at the Portsmouth (Va.) Invitational, an NBA-sanctioned postseason tournament for projected second-round draft choices and a smattering of possible late first-rounders.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. - Has Zack Rosen lost his mind? Apparently, that's a question being asked of the point guard, fresh from his final season at Penn and chasing an NBA dream. "Everybody keeps telling me no, so I can keep being motivated," said Rosen, who will graduate May 13 with a bachelor's degree in economics from Wharton. "Everybody," Rosen said, tells him that he won't make it. "They say I'm too small . . . I'm too short, and I'm too light. " The 6-foot, 170-pounder is out to prove that he can play in the NBA, which is why he is at this week's Portsmouth Invitational Tournament - a showcase for players unlikely to be drafted.
