Auburn Hills, 79-69

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Bob Lanier tossed in
30 points and grabbed 18 rebounds,
leading the Detroit Pistons to a
94-91 National Basketball Associa-
tion victory over the New York
Knicks last night and ending a
two-year, six-game Piston losing
streak against New York.
The defeat, coupled with Bos-
ton's 94-89' win over Cleveland,
dropped the Knicks a game behind
the Celtics in their battle for the
Atlantic Division in the NBA.
Lanier, with 10 points, and John
Mengelt, with nine, paced a final-
period surge which won for theI
Pistons, after the Knicks had come
from 12-point and 13-point deficits
to tie or overtake Detroit.
The Pistons built up as much as
a six-point lead in the closing min-
utes but New York fought backj
on a basket by Bill Bradley and a
layup by Dean Meminger to pull
within one, 92-91, with 25 seconds
to play.,
Detroit ran the clock down and
the Knicks fouled Lanier, who
dropped in two clinching free
throws with seven seconds re-
maining. It was the second night
in a row Lanier's foul shots in the
closing seconds clinched a Detroit
victory.
The Pistons enjoyed balanced
scoring with Dave Bing tossing
in 21 points, Curtis Rowe 18 and

Field goal accuracy was the
deciding factor. The Blue sank

O.C.C. was able to sink only
32 of 80 tries, for an even forty

The visitors showed from the
onset that they had come to play,
jumping off to a quick 6-2 lead. Un-
fortunately for Auburn Hills, their

The Blue slowly pecked away,

field goal by Buress gave them
a 24-22 lead, which was stretched
to a 35-28 halftime advantage.
When Clancy needed only
three minutes of second-half ac-

After the game, Carter explain-

off the court. We don't just play

Ray McCullough takes his spot
among Wolverine super stars

By RICH STUCK
The annual phenomena called
the pro footbail draft is finally
over. The hectic, oft-confusing af-
fair has left in its wake some very
happy players and somebpuzzled
athletes who weren't to be found
on the draft lists.
Michigan had six players pluck-.
ed from its senior class while two
standouts were bypassed. Paul
Seymour was the first Wolverine
selected, going to the Buffalo Bills
in the opening round.
After Seymour, Randy Logan
was the next selectee, getting his
call from Philadelphia. Bo Rather
was picked by Miami, Fred
Grambau by Kansas City, Clint1
Spearman went in the thirteenth
round to Los Angeles, and Bill'
Hart was the final Wolverine to
get the nod, selected by the Chi-
cago Bears in the sixteenth round.
Seymour and his fiance, Linda
Kress, are looking forward to liv-
ing in Buffalo. "I hear it's a good

swim team, possibly the best.
Now a senior, the Park Ridge,
Ill., native has been a part of the
Michigan swim scene for four
years.'
During his first three years'
of association with the swim
team he was not always the
happiest tanker and at times it
would show up in his perform-
' ance in the pool. Much of this
stemmed from his relation to
his coach, Gus Stager.
"Gus is really high-strung and
so am I," commented McCullough.
"We have had a lot of disagree-
ments in my years here." One1
incident, which happened last yeart
in preparation for the NCAA na-
tional championship meet, is par-;
ticularly vivid in the mind of the;
swimmer.
McCullough had worked hard=
all year for a spot on the 400 yard
medley relay team and had con-
sistently beaten his closest oppo-
sition of the team, Jose Aranha.
However, when Aranha nipped

when McCullough had not reached
his peak yet, Stager put Aranha
in the medley race at the NCAA's.
According to McCullough, the
team would have taken fourth
place in the race instead of the
sixth they took, if he had swam.
This season, however, every-
thing is falling into place. StagerI
