Russell drafted by Cleveland

Michigan's flashy forward,
Campy Russell, is no longer
Michigan's flashy forward. The
Cleveland Cavaliers of the Na-
tional Basketbell Association
tabbed the 6-7, X215 pounder in
the first round of its a n n : a 1
draft in New.York City yester-
Russell was the eighth slayer
to be chosen by the NBA tao-
guls and the first undercltss-
man to be picked among the 13
who had been accepted by
the league under the "hardship"
provision of the NBA rules.
Although Campy had declared
his intention to be considered
by the NBA for drafting over
a month ago, he had until Mon-
day to withdraw his name from
the list and retain eligihiity for
the 1974-75 Wolverine .)asketball
"It was a tough decision for
me. I'm close with all toe guys
on the team especially C. J.
(Kupec), Grote, and Jae (John-
son) which made it hard", Cam-
py said yesterday.
ALTHOUGH he certainly had
to be disappointed that his star
had chosen to forsake spacious
Crisler Arena for the drafty an-
cient confines of Cleveland
Arena, Michigan Coach John
Orr managed to conceal his
chagrin under pleasant parting
"I wish him the best of luck in
the NBA. He'll be with a very
fine coach (former Minnesita
coach Bill Fitch) and have an
opportunity to play. Be has a
great future with the Cavaliers.
I hope he gets a load of mon-
ey," said Orr.
"He knows that we're d i s-
appointed and we hate like hell
to lose him because we think
he's the best player in the coun-
try, but anybody in t-e same
position would have do.ie the
same thing."
Marquette Coach At \Icsuire,
whose Warriors defeated ,Mich-
igan in the finals of the Mid-
East Regionals at Tuscaloosa
last March, wished hiu star,
Maurice Lucas, rnother hard-
ship case taken i- thi fi r s t
round, the best of ick, ,)tit had
harsh words for te per etra-
tors of the hardship draft, the
lawyers and prlcfssr:nal re-
"EVERYBODY knocks the
hooker on the core- ans ithe
junkie in the hallway"' McGuire
said, "but some of otir io a st
reputable people wort more in
the shadows than in the sun-
Losing under-lassnen to the
professionals is l.I ha' for Mc-
Guire who has seen center Jim
Chones and forward Larry !Ac-
Neill follow the same course i0
the past two years.

Preceding Russell and lucas
in the first roord were 'ost of
the big names of this past sea-
son, with the exception of N.C.
State's hDvid Thompson who
will remain wi-h the defending
national chamoitn Wolfpock.
As previously announced.
Portland gave Bill galton half
the state of Oregon for h i s
services, and tne shiladelphia
76ers followed by choositg Mar-
vin Barnes of Providence, a
rugged 6-9 rebounder.
SEATTLE used the pick it had
acquired from Cleveland f oir
Dick Snyder to draft 7-4 Toin
Burleson of N.C. Stat. itorleson
showed tremend->us impro -e-
ment throughout nis college ca-
reer and with dill Russell pro-
viding the tutelage, hss p r o-
gress can only continue. Phoenix
chose Notre Dame All-American
John Shumate.
The Houston Rockets, w h o
were rumored to be seeking
Russell's services at forward
to team with another Viichigan
All-American, tudy Toajano-
vich, opted ins:ead for forward

Bobby Jones of North Carolina.
Kansas City-Omaha also pulled
a surprise by selecting iu known
Scott Wedmau, a 6-7 totrvard
from Colorado.
AFTER the Cavaliers took
Campy, Buffaio opted for Tfrn
McMillan of Maryland in spite
of his intention to study at Ox-
ford as a Rhodes Scholar next
year. Atlanta continued t he
trend toward sig ren jy draft-
ing center Mike Sojourner of
Utah and Golden Mtate picked
Keith Wilkes of '. C L.A.
The first guard chosen was
Brian Winters of :outh Carolina
by the Los Angeles Lakers. But
the choice of Winters was mere-
ly a digression as Washington
(nee Capital and Baltimore)
picked 6-10 Len Elmore of Mary-
land, who nobody expected to
last that long.
The Detroit Pistons, drafting
fifteenth, opted for little known
Al Eberhard of Missouri, a 6-7
forward. The 'pistons picked
Eric Money of Arizors (a Fred
Snowdon recruit ftrom 'etroit
Kettering) in the secand -otsund.
