Wolverine cagers leave
for Egyptian tour today

By RICH LERNER
Say 'salaam' to the Michigan basketball team.
The Wolverine cagers leave Crisler Arena today
at noon, and at 5:44 p.m. tomorrow will arrive
in Cairo, Egypt, for a 12 day goodwill tour.
"We'll have a great time," said coach Johnny
Orr. "It should be real educational.
"WE'LL PLAY the same team eight times,
the Egyptian National Team, they have an
American assistant coach, and they're sup-
posed to be like a good division II college team,"
Orr said.
"The games will be outside, with crowds up-
wards of 15,000 and 20,000.
"We'll be travelling four days, and play eight
games and give three clinics in about 12 days,"
Orr said.
THE TEAM has spent the past three days
practicing in Ann Arbor and getting accustomed
to international rules.
A crowd of approximately 25 friends, rela-
tives and well-wishers watched the team go
through its final practice session yesterday
morning. The squad scrimmaged full court with
international rules in effect.
The key is seven feet wider where the foul

lane meets the baseline. The international game
moves faster, because of a 30-second clock and
the referee does not handle the ball after a
violation. International rules also permit dunk-
ing.
"We'll run into some difficulties, but after
three days we should be used to it," Orr said.
THE INTERNATIONAL r u I e s also worry
some of the players.
"The offense, as far as rebounding on free
throws, has an advantage," said 6-7 forward
Joel Thompson.
"I LIKE BEING able to dunk," said John
Robinson, "but I don't like the wider lanes.
"It should be a pretty good trip. I heard it's
pretty wild, I hope they don't bother us," Robin-
son said, referring tv the tenuous political situa-
tion.
The everpresent possibility of tension between
Israel and Egypt also leaves Orr apprehensive.
"I hope they keep it quiet while we're there,"
he confided.
The entourage faces a 22-hour trip in addi-
tion to a seven hour time change.
"We're going to be tired for a while," assist-
ant coach Jim Dutcher assured.

MICHIGAN forward John Robinson (45) snatches a rebound
in a game last winter against Northwestern. Looking on is
C.J. Kupec (41). Robinson and teammates leave for Egypt
at noon today for a 12-day tour of the Land of the Pharaoh.

TIGERS FALL TO YANKEES
Brewers shut out Red Sox sports Of the ia
By The Associated Press d mr A1~nth1c n"h trn rarmc eat rrf

BOSTON-Don Money hit two
home runs and Darrell Porter
added a solo shot last night as
the Milwaukee Brewers snapped
Boston's 10-game home winning
streak with a 4-0 victory over
the Red Sox behind Jim Cot-
born's seven hitter.
Diego Segui, a . veteran re-
liever making his first start
since May 16, 1972, struck out
11 Brewers but was the victim
of the gopher ball. Given a
starting shot when Luis 'Tiant
reported stiffness in his right
shoulder, S e g u i fell behind
quickly and the Brewers went
on to hand the Red Sox just
their fourth loss in the last 22
games.
Money led off the game with
his 10th homer, a tremendous
shot which cleared the 23-foot
high screen atop the 37-foot
left field wall. Porter followed
immediately with his 11th

homer, a 42a-1oot blast to right
center.
Money then was credited with
another homer on a high fly
contested by the Red Sox in the
third inning. The ball appeared
to hit off the roof outside the
left field line and bounced into
the stands, but umpire Larry
Barnett ruled it had hit the foul
pole.
The Brewers added a fourth
run on Kurt Bevacqua's double,
an infield out and a wild pitch
in the fifth.
Colborn, 7-8, pitched his first
shutout in 16 starts this year,
Tigers Caged
NEW YORK -Lou Piniella's
run-scoring single capped a
three-run 'fifth inning, leading
the New York Yankees to a 4-2
victory over the Detroit Tigers
last night.
The Yankees, shut out in their

tnree previous starts, score
their first run in 28 innings
when Bobby Bonds walked in
the first, moved to third on, an
error and came around on Thur-
man Munson's grounder.
The Yankees put the game
away in the fifth as Munson
singled home a run, Nettles dou-
bled -home Munson and Piniella
singled home the third run of
the frame.
Winner Doc Medich, 8-12, had
enough of a cushion to withstand
Detroit's two-run rally in the
sixth. Ben Oglivi doubled and
scored on Willie Horton's 18th
homer of the baseball season.
Medich got last-out relief help
from Tippy Martinez as the
Yankees beataJoe Coleman,
9-13.
In last night's game Bill Bald-
win, just brought up from Evans-
ville, replaced veteran outfield-
er Mickey Stanley. Stanley was
placed on the 60-day disabled list
yesterday and is not expected
to return this season. Stanley
underwent surgery to repair an
injured right thumb.

Chicago A'S, Seattle Sox?
CHICAGO - Chicago White Sox owner John Allyn disputed
reports yesterday that plans are being made for a major shift
of baseball franchises involving his team and the world champion
Oakland A's.
The Chicago Tribune reported Monday that discussions are
underway to move Charles O. Finley's Oakland team to Chicago
and Allyn's franchise to Seattle.
"I don't think there's a chance that the White Sox will leave
Chicago," Allyn said in an interview. "He (Finley) has com-
mitments in Oakland that I don't think he can get out of."
Namath will play
NEW YORK-Quarterback Joe Namath will sign a contract
with the New York Jets today calling for $450,000 a year for two
years.
The Jets called a news conference for 12:30 p.m. today at the
team's training camp in Hehpstead, N.Y., to make it official.
The 32-year-old football star may be in uniform before the
end of the week.
The -Jets said Phil Iselin, president of the National Football
League franchise, and Jimmy Walsh, Namath's lawyer, ham-
mered out a basic agreement Monday night.
