Wolverine cagers return

"It's great to be home" was the pre-
vailing attitude among the members
of the Michigan basketball team, last
night, as they arrived tired, and sou-
venir-laden from their 15-day goodwill
tour of Egypt.
The squad arrived at Metro Airport
at close to 10:00 p.m. after more than
22 hours of travel.
The Wolverines swept seven games
from the Egyption National team, win-
ning the last game, Thursday night
"We saw the pyramids and the
sphinx, we went to the Citadel and to
the Cairo museum, we swam in the
Mediterranean. The Egyptian people
were just great to us. We had a bus
at our disposal all the time. They
went all out to entertain us," Coach
Johnny Orr explained. "We saw one
good belly dancer and one really rot-
ten one."

"Everything went alright until we got
on Northwest in New York.
"Half our bags didn't come.
"All the players are glad they went,"
said Orr, "but I doubt if any want to go
back," he added.
"I'm glad I went," forward Joel
Thompson concurred, "but you couldn't
pay me to go back. It makes you really
appreciate what you have."
"Hey man, it was alright," said Way-
man Britt. "It was a good experience,
but it was a long boring trip.
"No food worth eating, people tired
looking, it sure makes you appreciate
the United States," Britt said.
"We had to stay in places you
thought you'd never have to stay in,"
the 6.2 senior went on, "but from their
viewpoint the places were real nice."
"They treated us great," said Don
.Johnston, "but by our standards it would
not be so good.
"We were ready for a plush hotel, but

we were right in the middle of downtown
Cairo. It was kind of scary at first, but
the people were unbelievably friendly,"
Johnston continued.
"Most everyone over there liked the

All but the last two games were played
on dirt courts, that "made Northwestern
look like a palace" in guard Steve
Grote's words.
"The trip helped the team," said
Grote. "That's the first time we lived
together and that aspect helped the

us closer together."
"It didn't help as much as it could
have, with the weird surfaces like dirt

and the different rules," Johnston said.
The food and water bothered the Maize
and Blue to a degree.
"Most everybody got kind of sick,"
said Johnston. "But I was the only one
to miss a game, because of it."
Thompson led the team in both scor-
ing and rebounding, tallying 106 points,
and guard Dave Baxter topped the team
in assists and finished second in scoring.
Grote and Britt were the third and
fourth leading scorers, respectively.
"Joel Thompson is ready to play
big-time college basketball," Orr en-
thused. "Tom Bergen (6-10 transfer
from Utah) sprained his ankle, but
showed us real potential offensively."
The team played three games in Cairo
before travelling to Mahalla and Tanta
for one-game stints, and closing with
two games in Alexandria on the Medi-
terranean. Crowds ranged between 100
and 1500 according to Coach Orr.
The scores of the games were 79-53,
84-76, 102-71, 87-55, 77-70, 101-73, and 93-73.

NCAA pushes 'the limts'
CHICAGO (P) -The NCAA's special economics
convention adjourned yesterday after setting lim-
its on coaching staffs, reducing travel squads
in football and basketball and significantly cut-
ting off-campus contacts colleges may make in
their recruiting efforts.
The convention adjourned after dealing with
about 50 of the 73 pieces of legislation presented
to it in an effort to reverse a situation in which
more than 80 per cent of, the colleges now show
a deficit in their athletic budgets.
Not acted upon were three controversial
share-the-wealth proposals that would have
divided up receipts from bowl games, TV and
the NCAA basketball tournament.
Delegations voted Thursday to terminate the
$15 per month expense money that scholarship
grants have traditionally included, meaning no

scholarship athlete will now be able to receive
any money legally.
Yesterday, coaching staffs were slashed. Divi-
sion I members-the 234 largest colleges-agreed
to get by with a head coach, eight assistants
and two part-time assistants in football and a
head coach, two assistants and one part-time
assistant in basketball. There had been no limits
The delegates also set limits on traveling
squads in most sports. Football teams will be
limited to taking 48 players for road games
and basketball teams slashed to 10. There
had been no previous limts.
The convention also said. no college may Visit
any recruit off its campus more than three
times, and time periods were set for when those
visits may take place. And no high school athlete
may accept more than six expense-paid visits
to a college. There had been no previous limits.
Garrison gives goodbyes
DALLAS ()-Rugged veteran Walt Garrison,
the No. 3 all-time rusher for the Dallas Cowboys,
retired from professional football yesterday be-
cause of an injury suffered in June as he pursued
his off-season career as a rodeo cowboy.
Garrison, 31, told Dallas Coach Tom Landry
Thursday night that he felt it was time to quit.
A strong consideration was the torn ligaments
in his left knee which Garrison suffered in
Bozeman, Mont.,. while bulldogging a steer.
"The thing we'll miss most is that Garrison was
part of the great tradition of the Cowboys of the
last 10 years," said Landry. "A great football
player. He did more with limited size, speed and
quickness than anybody I've ever seen."
