Campy given hardship OK

Speculation began afresh
y e s t e r d a y on whether
Campy Russell will again
play basketball for the Uni-
versity of Michigan, as the
National Basketball Asso-
ciation released its list of
undergraduates approved
as so-called "h a r d s h i p"
cases w i t h Russell's name
prominent on it.
The inclusion of Russell's
name on the list menms that he
will be eligible t be drsfted by
an NBA team in the leagtte's
regular college draft to he held
May 28.
However, under sew ricases-
tablished for the hsrl'hip cses
this year, Russell and th? other
approved underpratdates have
until 24 ho'rs before the draft
to ask that their names be re-
moved from consider:ation.
Thus, Campy, who was also
previously drafted by the New
York Nets of the American
Basketball Association, h a s
three more weeks in which to
make up his mind on whether
to pass un his senior year of
play for the Wolverines.
If he fails to ask that his name
be scratched from the list, he
automatically loses his college
eligibility, whether he is actual-
ly drafted or not. Russell,
though, an All-American this
past season and top player in
the Big Ten, would be a cinch
to be selected very early in the
first round of the draft if he
remains available.
Russell, who confirmed sev-
eral weeks ago that he had sub-
mitted his name to the NBA for
hardship consideration, contends
that he is still unsure as to his
plans for the upcoming season.
He said that he had submitted
his application even though he
was not sure whether he wanted
to jump to the pro league, tn
order to at least keep that op-
tion open. The 6-8 forward sug-
gested, however, that he "prob-
ably" would be back at Mich-
Russell, of course, would be
ending a superb career for the
Wolverines if he turned pro this
year. Campy, widely heralded

Utah jilts Nets,
extends series
SALT LAKE CITY (I'-The Utah Stars won their battle for
survival in the American Basketball Association championship
playoffs last night as James Jones and Ron Boone led the way to
a 97-89 victory over the New York Nets, who had won the first
three series games.
Jones scored 24 points and Boone had 22 while the Nets were
held to a mere 13 points in the final quarter of the battle the
Stars had to win to keep the best-of-seven playoffs alive and
return them to New York for a Friday night meeting.
THE STARS LOST the opening two games in New York ;nd
then fell in overtime, 103-100, at their Salt Palace home on Mon-
day night. They lost all four regular season games to the Nets
in New York.
Jones paced the opening burst with 12 points in the first
quarter as Boone, hitting from 20 to 22 feet out, tallied eight
The two teams each scored 24 points in the second period with
several on each team sharing the scoring.
In the third, it was Erving for New York and Beaty, who
missed the first two games because of- an infection, leading the
way for Utah.
LARRY KENON, WHO scored 14 points, led the Nets' re-
AP Phuoo bounders with 15, while Erving grabbed nine. Beaty, used only
sparingly in the first half, had eight rebounds and all of his 18
paints came in the second half.
