UCLA lands hc

The changing of the guard at
UCLA may have eased the
minds of a lot of the nation's
basketball coaches, but it did
nothing to solve their problem.
The team that new Bruin
coach Gene Bartow puts on the
floor next season will nqt only
include several holdovers from
the last of John Nou en's
NCAA champions, it will also
feature three of the nation's
most highly prized scnolastic
recruits.
UCLA and a handful of na-
tional powers participated in a
"rich get richer" recruiting
season, according to The
Roanoke Times' annual sur-
vey of America's best It i g h
school basketball players.
The Top 40 is a compilation
of scholastic All-American lists,
several recruiting services and
the advice of a dozen of the
nation's most respected colleg-
iate recruiters.
Over the years, it has singled
out in advance a majority of
the nation's future basketball
stars.
From last year's Top 40, for

example, 25 were starters in
their freshman year, including
such standouts as Kentucky's
Rick Robey, Auburn's M i k e
Mitchell, N. C. State's Kenny
Carr, Pitt's Larry Harris, Clem-
son's Skip Wise, Maryland's
Brad Davis, North Cara' na's
Phile Ford and Marquete's
Butch Lee.
Bartow insured UCLA's posi-
tion among basketbail's heir-
archy by signing three o those
Californians. They are 6-10 Dav-
id Greenwood and 6-2 Roy Ham-
ilton from Verbun 'Oei High in
Las Angeles, generally conceded
to be the top scholastic team in
the country.
The Bruins also got 6-3
guard Brad Rolland, an out-
standing shooter from La Cre-
scenta, Calif.
But UCLA's reertiters did not
steal the entire show. S a n
Francisco recruited 7-0 B j I 1
Cartwright and 6-9 James har-
dy, a pair of hotshot Califor-
nians, and slick 6-6 Winford
Boynes of Oklahoma City.
Several other national pow-
ers also did well, among *hem

Maryland and Notre Dame.
The Terps got 6-10 larry
Gibson of Baltimore, Md., aad
6-4 James Tillman of Wash-
ington.
Indiana, ranked No. 1 most
of the year, signed 6-R R i c h
Valavicius of Rammond, Ind.,
and 6-3 Bob Bender of Biim-
ington, Ill.
Notre Dame, buoyed by All-
American Adrian Danr.evs de-
cision not to turn pro, will bring
in 6-11 Laimbeer of Pals Ver-
des, Calif., 6-8 Bruce Flowers of
Berkley, Mich., and 5-2 Bernard
Rencher of Astoria, N.Y.

Challenger decries Au*'s
'Russian Tank' strategy
By The Associated Press
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - British challenger Joe Bug-
ner fired a verbal bazooka yesterday into the "Russian Tank"
ring tactic proclaimed by heavyweight champion Muhammad
Ali.
"I think it's a lot of bull," Bugner told newsmen after a
training session for their June 30 title match.
"I tried it. If you use it, you'll get hit," said the European
heavyweight champion.
A boxer employing the so-called Russian Tank defense peers
between his arms which are held horizontally in front of his face,
in apparent simulation of a soldier looking through the viewing
slit of a tank. Experts note that it leaves the boxer completely
open to body punches.
A ring promotion specialist from the United States, in Malay-
sia as a consultant to the organizers of this country's first world
title fight, said Ali announced the Russion Tank out of whimsy
in the thought that it might gain him millions of fans in Russia.
Bugner's manager, Andy Smith, was even more scornful of
Ali's inn-ovation.
"If my man isn't intelligent enough to deal with the Russian
Tank on his own, then he certainly wouldn't be worth bringing
out here.

Kiss of death-Almost!
Brazilian soccer star Pele receives one of 1S kisses his wife gave him at his formal signing
by the New York Cosmos in New York yesterday. Pele triggered a near riot when he arrived
about 45 minutes late to the pushing and shoving of over 300 press, public relations personel
and gate-crashers who had been filling up on free booze and hors d'oeuvres. Two fist fights
broke out between television and still cameramen.
