Issel, Pratt enter ABA ranks

Diamondmen blitzed; drop twin bill

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (R) - The
American Basketball Association
took another giant step forward
yesterday when the Kentucky
Colonels officially announced they
have signed All-American Dan
Issel and teammate Mike Pratt of
the University of Kentucky to
multi-year contracts.
Although terms bf the contracts
signed Friday were not announced,
Issel reportedly will receive $1.4
million in salary, bonuses and de-
ferred compensations and Pratt
will get an estimated $740,000 un-
der similar arrangements.
Issel's contract equals the $1.4
million paid Lew Alcindor by the
Milwaukee Bucks of the rival Na-
tional Basketball Association and
istthe most ever paid to any ath-
lete.
The Colonels' recruiting coup
announced at a press conference
is the latest achievement for the
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (R) -
Defenseman Dan Lodboa's
three last-period goals broke a
3-3 deadlock to give Cornell
University a 6-4 win over Clark-
son College and the NCAA
hockey championship Saturday
night.

ABA in its battle with the older
NBA. Purdue All-American Rick
Mount signed for a reported $750,-
000 with the Indiana Pacers,
North Carolina's Charlie Scott
contracted with the Washington
Caps for $500,000 and the Pitts-
burgh Pipers signed Davidson's
Mike Maloy for $150,000.
It also marked the first time
the Colonels have signed a No. 1
draft choice-Issel. Claude Vir-
dent of Murray State, Kentucky's
second-round pick, also has sign-
ed with the Colonels. Pratt was
their third pick.
Issel was asked why he didn't
wait until the NBA holds its draft
Monday, as he earlier said he
would do.
"I'm happy with my contract,"
Issel replied, "and I feel the ABA
is here to stay."
The 6-foot-8 center, most pro-
lific scorer in Kentucky history,
also said he wanted to remain in
the state and the Colonels offered
him the financial security he
wanted.
Issel scored 2,138 points in his
three years of collegiate competi-
tion and averaged 33.9 points and
13 rebounds a game this season
in leading top-ranked Kentucky to
a 26-2 record and into the quar-
terfinals of the NCAA Tourna-
ment.'

Pratt, another three-year start-
er, is a 6-4 forward who averaged
19.3 points and nine rebounds a
game this season.
Club president H. W e n d e l1
Cherry, who has been at the
Colonels' helm for four months,
called the signings "a giant step
in producing h championship
team."
When asked about a possible
merger b e t w e e n the leagues,
Cherry replied: "Why merge now?
The price of merger suddenly
went up. We have all the stars
now."
Michigan All-American Rudy
Tomjanovich a n d St. Bona-
venture's All - American B o b
Lanier have signed to play with
the National Basketball Asso-
ciation.
Tomjanovicb's contract call;
for a reported $300,000 spread
for several years. In signing
with the NBA, Tomn jaovi
spurned an estimated $270,000
offer from the Los Angeles
Stars of the ABA.
The NBA will hold its draft
on Monday, and the teams se-
lecting Toinjanovich and La-
nier will pick up their con-
tracts.
The ABA has already signed
Purdue's Rick Mount, David-
son's Mike Maloy and North
Carolina's Charlie Scott.
It had been rumored that
Louisiana State's Pete Mara-
vich, the highest scorer in col-
lege baskebtall, has been signed
by the South Carolina Cougars
of the ABA. However, Mara-
vich's father and coach, Press
Maravich, said yesterday that
it would be several weeks be-
fore Pistol Pete signed a pro
contract.

Special To The Daily
TUCSON - Sloppy fielding in
the first game and erratic pitching
in the second marred an otherwise
strong performance by Michigan's
baseball team yesterday and led
to a double defeat at the hands
of Arizona's Wildcats. The Wol-
verines dropped the first game 5-1
and were edged 8-7 in the night-
cap.
Highlighting Michigan's play
was the continued solid hitting of
Tom Kettinger and a strong pitch-
ing performance by freshman Pete
Helt.
Helt, a freshman southpaw
started the first game and de-
served a better fate than to leave
the game trailing 3-1. Helt was
touched for six hits, only three of
them of a solid variety, in his six
innings work but was plagued by
poor fielding behind him.

All but one of the runs scored
against Helt and his successor
Tom Fleszar were unearned as the
Wolverines were guilty of six er-
rors.
The only Michigan tally came in
the sixth inning when catcher Dan
Muvihill doubled following walks
to Kettinger and Leon Roberts.
The second game was more of
an offensive battle and the Wol-
verines were in contention down'
to the final out. Although the
game ran only seven innings the
two teams banged out a total of
25 hits.
Kettinger smashed three hits
for the Wolverines as did catcher
Tom Lundstedt.
The Wolverines got on the score-
board first with three runs in the
top half of the first. Jim Koco-
loski singled to center to start the
rally and was moved around to

third on a double by Dan Fife.
Lundstedt brought in Kocoloski
with a single to center and Ket-
tinger brought in Fife with an-
other single. An error provided
Michigan with its third tally.
However, the lead didn't last
for long. The Wildcats tied the
score in the bottom of the first
with three runs off freshman
Mickey Ellwood.
Michigan took the lead back in
the fifth with two runs on singles
by Lundstedt, Kettinger, and John
Hornyak, and another timely Ari-
zona error.
The Wildcats regained the lead
for good in the bottom of the fifth
as they scored four runs on seven
hits and knocked Ellwood out of
the box.
Down by three 8-5 the Wolver-
ines fought back in their last at
bat. Fife started this rally with
a single to right and was brought
home on Lundstedt's triple to deep
center field. Kettinger followed
with another run producing hit,
this time a line shot to left to
bring in Lundstedt, and narrow
the gap to one run.

STATE FINALS:
Pershing takes 'A'

Michigan stickmen's opener
ruined by rugged Oberlin

EAST LANSING (M) - The
amazing but unranked Doughboys
from Pershing stunned Pontiac
Central last night with a 86-81
victory to win the class A State'
High School Basketball Cham-
pionship.
The win gave Pershing its sec-
ond championship in four years
and gave head coach Will Robin-
son a tremendous going away
present. He has already signed to
coach at Illinois State University
and the win was his last high
school game.
The determined D o u g h b o y s
battled Pontiac Central to a 16-16
first period standoff, moved ahead
early in the second stanza and
were never headed.
Pontiac Central got as close as
four points with two minutes left
but couldn't get closer.
Five-foot guard Phil Paige had
a tremendous game for Pershing,
setting up plays, ball handling,
and scoring. He pumped in thir-
teen of his nineteen points in the
second quarter.
Campy Russell, the Chiefs 6-7
superstar was tremendous under
the boards and also scored 33

points in a losing cause. Still a
junior, he has another year of
eligibility for Pontiac Central. A.
Pershing fans, part of the 12,527
fans who jammed into the MSU's
Jennison Fieldhouse, surged onto
the court after the game in wild
enthusiasm. Several players were
kocked down, but it was all part
of the joy that overwhelmed the
Doughboy fans.
The loss was ithe first of the
year for the Pontiac Central
squad, which finished the year
with a 22-1 record. Pershing, never
ranked all year, finished at 16-4.
Pontiac Central had a 55-35
edge in rebounds but only con-
nected on 32-75 field goal at-
tempts. Russell pulled down 25 re-
bounds to top both teams.
In class B action, River Rouge
picked up its tenth title with an
easy 7666 win over Saginaw Car-
rollton.
Muskegon Christian edged St. 1
Ignace by a single point, 52-51 in
the class C encounter.
In another close match, Flint
Holy Redeemer nailed Kingsly 62-
60 with a shot at the final buzzer.

Special To The Daily
Michigan's Lacrosse team open-
ed their season yesterday with a
10-8 loss to Oberlin College in a
game marred by muddy grounds
and thirteen minutes of Wolverine
penalties.
Despite a 3-0 Oberlin lead at the
end of the first quarter, the Mich-
igan stickmen managed to score
five goals in the second quarter
to tie up the tally at 5-5 at the
half. But in the second half pen-
alty trouble struck the Wolverines.
With two minutes to go in the
final quarter and an 8-7 lead,
Oberlin scored two quick goals on
Wolverine goalie Jay Johnson,
while the Wolverine squad was a
man short. The Michigan team

also managed to add a tally of
their own before the game ended,
making the final score 10-8.
Wolverine Dick Dean had an
excellent afternoon despite the
mud as he led all scorers with five
goals and two assists. Skip Flana-
gan also turned in an impressive
performance scoring one goal, and
making four assists, while Roger
Mills and Tom Middaugh each
added one goal. Jay Johnson had
an excellent day in the goal, under
the circumstances, giving up only
ten goals.
The Wolverines pit their 0-1
record against Chicago next week-
end.

Both the Rangers and Montreal,
defending Stanley Cup champion,
have 85 points, four less than Bos-
ton, the East Division leader.
There are two weeks remaining

got offensive support from Pete
Mahovlich, who scored in the first
period, and Mickey Redmond, who
connected in the third.
