Benson will sit out Olympics

J I

NEW CASTLE, Pa.-
Indiana basketball star Kent
Benson, his left wrist mending
following a second operation
two weeks ago, said yesterday
he will be unable to play in the
Olympics.
"If I can't represent the
United States to the best of
my ability, I shouldn't go,"
said the 6-foot-11 center, the
sole returning starter from
the Hoosiers' undefeated NC-
AA championship team.
Complications d e v e 1-
oped two weeks ago. A 10-
minute surgical procedure
turned into a 2 -hour opera-
tion after doctors determined
that one of the pins was em-
bedded too deeply and had to
be removed.
The cast, which was supposed
to come off then, will be left on
for another three weeks and a
special rehabilitation program
for the wrist was postponed for
another five to eight weeks.
"With that amount of delay,"
Benson said, "there just is no
way I can be ready. I had to
make the decision now in all
fairness to the United States,
the Olympic Committee and to
the other Olympic contenders."

Gordon Bell was voted Sen-
ior Athlete of the Year by the
undergraduate M Club. The
award was presented Wednes-
day night at the Quarterback
Club banquet at Barton Hills
Country Club.
Athletesunominated for the
award were Bell, Wayman
Britt, and Dick Walterhouse.
Former basketball standout
Rudy Tomjanovich, now with
the NBA's Houston Rockets,
was master of ceremonies.
Coaches who won Big Ten
Championships this past sea-
son were honored, along with
Johnny Orr. All the coaches

were in attendance, except Bo
Schembechler, for obvious rea-
sons.
Bell, an All Big Ten selec-
tion, led the conference in
rushing last year with 1388
yards, to complete his colleg-
iate record at 2800 yards, sec-
ond best in Wolverines history.
Bell also -scored 14 touch-
downs in 1975, all but one by
rushing. Be totaled 29 for his
career, to rank only Tom Har-
mon's 33, and Billy Taylor's
32.
Ali settles
BONN, West Germany --
A threat to call off Muham-
mad Ali's heavyweight title de-
fense against Richard Dunn of
England disappeared Thursday
after a $160,000 compromise
that left Ali saying, "It
wouldn't have hurt me none to
go home."
The money was equivalent to
the amount Ali was estimated
to have to pay in German tax-
es on the fight Tuesday. Arum
said the problem was resolved
when tax officials agreed to re-
duce the amount to $160,000.
