from Pontiac l)asketball star
From Wire Service Reports
PONTIAC - Campy Russell, Michigan's high school
basketball player of the year last year and one of the most
heralded and sought after prep stars in the nation, revealed
yesterday that he has signed and mailed a Big Ten letter
of intent to attend Michigan.
An athletic department spokesman last night said
Michigan has not yet received the letter.
Russell, a 6-7 All-America and two-time everybody's
All-State, had been sought by 75 schools. Those most in
contention besides Michigan, had been reported to be
UCLA, Michigan State, and the University of Detroit, where
his brother has a year of eligibility remaining.
Russell led Pontiac Central to 44 victories against only
two defeats during his high
school career He averaged
Big Ten cuts 26 points and 21 rebounds
over the two year span.

-Tigers eradicate Yanks, 74

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers
ripped into Lindy McDaniel and
Jack Aker for four runs in the
seventh inning en route to a
7-4 victory over the staggering
New York Yankees last night to
extend their winning streak to
seven games.
In the top of the inning New
York pushed across two runs off
starter Joe Coleman on a force-
out by Danny Cater and sacri-
fice fly by pinch hitter Ron
Hansen to take a 4-3 lead.
McDaniel, 2-6, the fourth of

five Yankee pitchers, was tag-
ged for three of ~Detroit's runs
in the bottom of the inning. He
gave up singles to Al Kaline and
Jim Northrup, then hot-hitting
Norm Cash singled in a run.
Pinch hitter Gates Brown
drove in the lead run on a field-
er's choice when Northrup slid
under the tag at home plate.
Aurelio Rodriguez and Ed Brink-
man then knocked in a run each
with singles off Aker.
Detroit scored three times in
the second on Cash's RBI single
after a Willie Horton double, a
triple by Bill Freehan and a
squeeze bunt by Brinkman.
The loss was New York's
ninth in the last 11 games.
Mets bomb Phillies
NEW YORK - Bob Aspro-
monte singled home the winning
run with two out in the 12th
inning, ruining Jim Bunning's
debut in relief and giving the
New York Mets a 5-4 victory
over Philadelphia last night.
Tim Foli was safe to open the
12th when shortstop Larry Bowa
bobbled his smash. Tommie Agee
walked and was forced at second
by Don Clendenon, with Foli tak-

Patterson puts career on line

CLEVELAND (tP) - Floyd Pat-
terson puts his comeback hopes
on the line tonight when he fights
Terry Daniels in the feature
heavyweight bout at the Cleve-
land Arena.
But he says that's nothing new.
"Actually, I put it on the line
every time I get into the ring,"
says the 36-year-old boxer who
is the only man to regain the
heavyweight championship.

"I'm at a stage now where if
I lose bad enough, I have to hang
it up," Patterson says.
Patterson will pick up more
than $15,000 to fight Daniels, but
there's another prize for win-
ning. Cleveland promoter Don El-
baum says he has preliminary
approval from Muhammed Ali's
handlers for a fight with Patter-

knockouts in 28 fights. In ama-
teur boxing, he twice defeated
Harold Carter of Cleveland, a
boxer with a 7-8-1 record who
knocked down Patterson in a

Patterson laughs off the knock-
down by Carter. "It wouldn't be
a 'fight if I wasn't knocked down
first," he says. "I go down all
the time -in workouts." Be says
he was off balance when Carter
hit him.
Patterson won the first three
bouts on his comeback circuit
by knockouts and wrapped up
his workouts in Cleveland Mon-

day saying he fel; fine. But he
concedes "it could be the end"
if he loses decisively to Daniels.
Patterson says money and
pride aren't involved in his ef-

crown back tor a third itme.

plate on Cleon Jones' bouncer to

a pitch down the right field line,
scoring Clendenon.
It was the eighth defeat in 10

out of the Phillies' starting rota-
tion. He came on in the ninth.
For the Mets, it was their eighth
