   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat.. Jan. 5, 1974 9 Wash Turns Back Senior: Jeff Falls to Bettendorf Warriors Take 6th' Straight DUBUQUE-Ccdar Rapids Washington managed to beat back a pair of strong rallies by Dubuquc Senior in winning its fifth straight Mississippi Valley conference tilt, 65-GO, here Fri- day night. Wash's overall mark slands at 6-2, while Senior fell to 1-5 in the loop and 1-7 for all games. Senior took early leads of 9-4 and 13-11, but G-l Wash guard Mark Thompson opened up the second period with two straight field goals to put the Warriors out in front for good, 17-13. From there Wash pulled out to its biggest margin of the game at 29-16, and the end of the half saw the winners on top by 31-22. Senior came out gunning in the third frame, and 6-5 junior forward Chad Wisco sparked them to eight straight points to cut the deficit to 31-30. But then Wash had a spurt of its own, as Thompson and Steve Kennedy helped the Warriors to establish a more comfortable cushion with a 40-32 lead. At that point it looked like it would be downhill going for Washington, as they rolled to a edge with six minutes left. However, again Senior came back, and.they again sliced the margin to one, 55-54, with three minutes showing. But then Jeff Dawson scored a layup and Kennedy stole the inbounds pass and hit again to give the Warriors a 59-54 lead, and the game was finally in the bag. Both teams were chilly from the field. Wash hit 26 of 69 for 38 percent, while Senior shot 34 percent on 25 of 73 attempts. Thompson led all scorers with 21 points, and Kennedy added 15 for Wash. Wisco led Dubuque with 16. Senior was hurt by inexperi- ence; as they started a sopho- more-and four juniors. But they made up for much of it with their hustle, and they out- taller Washington, rebounded 42-37.

Disappointing Loss For J-Hawks By Al Miller Gazette Sports Writer Eleven straight unanswered points within 50 seconds late in the fourth quarter enabled Bet- tcndorf high to erase a six-point deficit and powered the Bull- dogs to an 83-74 basketball win at Jefferson high Friday night.

Stoecker contributed 12 points to the J-Hawk effort. Hargrave Hot, as Iowa City Stops Kennedy Special to The Gazelle IOWA Iowa City high employed a tough full court pressing defense while center Clay Hargrave poured in 29 points as City high topped Cedar Rapids Kennedy 73-56 here Fri- day.

The full court press forced nine Cougar mistakes by inter- mission, mostly in the back court. After a 32-23 halftime edge, Hargrave led the .Little Hawks to a 48-38 third quarter margin and even bigger things in the final quarter. The .junior jumping jack hit nine consecutive points at the start of the final frame while City high built a 60-40 lead.

(AP) A circuit court judge has issued a temporary order blocking sus- pension :of Rock Island High School from the Illinois High School Association. Judge Conway Spanton issued the ruling Friday after the IHSA had announced it was suspend- ing the school because it had recruited two basketball players in violation of association bylaws. The suspension would have, had the effect of barring the school' from competing with other schools in everything from wrestling and basketball to de- bating. Second Time The IHSA said Ihe recruiting violation occurred while the school was on probation, for competing in February in a music festival hot sanctioned by the IHSA. The suspension was to be for not more than one year and the IHSA said it would reconsider its action if "satisfactory disci- plinary measures" were taken against those involved recruitment. Judge Spanlon said tho IHSA decision needlessly penalized persons who weren't involved in the alleged recruiting violation. The injunction sought by the Rock Island school district was issued pending IHSA reconsid- eration of its decision. Harold Voylcs, principal the school, said school officials agreed with the IHSA's findings of a violation but fell the pena- lity was loo harsh. Unfair "It seems grossly unfair, uiv just, willful and capricious of the IHSA board to punish not only innocent bnskelbnll players but also student pnrliclpanls In every olhrr ncllvlly for n (inarter of their school lives, sold Voylns. tie snld I he school had re lieved varsity basketball Coach Jim Gleboff and sophomore Coach Wayne Hessel of their coaching duties because of the incident. Both will remain as teachers, he said. The IHSA said the suspension was levied after an investiga- tion indicated that a Rock Is- land .coach had enrolled two pupils from other schools this fall. An IHSA- spokesman, identified the two as Danny Jones from Lockport Central High School, and Frank Watkins, from a Mil- waukee high school. Both par- t i c i p a t e d in practice but dropped out of the school before the basketball season began. Judge Spanton scheduled hearing for Jan. 21 on whether the injunction should be made permanent. in the Marion Girls Down Maquoketa MAQUOKETA M a r i o n's girls basketball, team raised its record to 7-3 Iwilh a 27-21 'win over Maquoketa here Friday night.

The Raiders were paced b; their 6-7 center, Dan Neitnaber who dumped in 20 ing high point honors with Larrj McKain of Linn-Mar. The Lions scored first, and took an early lead behind tfo hot shooting of McKain anc Doug Nietert, ending the first quarter with a four-point edge: 14-11. Continuing their assault into the second period, Linn-Mar doubled their lead to eight points early in the quarter at 21-13, and held this, their larg- est lead of the game for five' minutes. With under two minutes re- maining in the half, and the Lions leading 29-21, the Raiders came alive. Sparked by the quick play of Neunaber and John Costello, Anamosa cut the Lion lead to two, 30-28.

"Except for about 48 seconds, we played super basketball, I think. We had a lapse where we went to sleep at both ends of the court and it cost us the win." Only remained when Al Selinger's three-point play gave Jeff a 72-66 edge and the .1- Hawk partisans sensed an upset in the making.

(AP) Ore- gon's new coach, Don Read, thinks a new offense might help the Ducks improve on the 2-9 record they made last season under Dick Enright, who was dismissed Friday. Read, promoted from assist- ant coach, said at a noon news conference he would install a Veer offense with more empha- is on passing than most teams using the Veer. Norv Ritchey, director of alh- etics, announced earlier that Enright was through as head oach. He said the university vould honor Enright's contract, vhich has two years to run, but didn't know what Enright ivould dp during that time. "I was not happy with the di- being given to the foot- lall program at litchie said. "In Don Read, I eel we are very fortunate to iave a man from our own staff vho is well respected." Enright, 39, had a 4-7 record vith Oregon going into the past season after his first year with he university. Some critics complained his e a m s sometimes seemed unorganized during casionally having the wrong number of players on the field, apparently functioning part of he time without benefit of quick decisions on key strategy. There also were complaints hat recruiting efforts following he disappointing season lacked direction, said a member of the athletic department who vouldn't be identified. Read said the Veer offense Mends itself to both the pass and the run in a very colorful vay. It's the kind of offense fans get excited about."
