Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kaplds Gazette: Sat.. 16. 1974 7 Kennedy Raps Wash; Jeff, Marion Score Cage Wins Wash Cool, Malone Hits 35 Points Hy Jack Ogdcn Executive Sports Editor Kennedy high school won .sixth straight game and added to Washington's basketball woe: in the Wash gym Friday nigh, with an impressive C8-56 victo- ry. The hot-shooting Cougars, tun- ing up for the approaching tour- nament grind, hit nearly 51 per- cent from the field as they broke away to a 35-20 halftimc lead and then held off a second half Wash rally. "We looked real good at admitted Kennedy .boss Dave Etiorme. "We alternated two offenses, and when Wash stopped one, the other seemed to work. "We gave them too many chances with mistakes in the second half, hut maybe that was because we had too big a lend. "It was really a team effort. Craig Enright did a fine defen- sive job on Jeff Dawson in the first half, Rick Danly came through with some big baskets in the third quarter and Bil Malone carried us down the stretch." Malone did more than that. The Valley scoring leader hit four straight baskets in the late-going to hold off Wash rallies, but lie also had five in tiie first half as he wound up with 12 of 20 from the field and 2G points. "I don't know if we were tighi or said Wash boss Don King, as he reviewed the fac that his squad hit only seven ol 33 shots in the first half. "We came back well and cut it from 15 to he explained. "But when we took one bad shot and missed a layup, and that was tht game." King paid tribute to the Cou gars. "They are a tough team to he admitted. "Their front line is so versatile they can go inside or outside." The Wash defense did a fine job in the first quarter Friday but even then the Warrior at- tack had problems. Wash led 11- 10 at the quarter, but five of the points were on free throws. Paced by Malone, Enright and Danly, Kennedy broke loose in the second to outscore the losers, 25-9, and virtually wrap up the victory. Turnovers, a total of 17 ol them, gave Wash numerous op- portunities in the final two periods and the Warriors took advantage of them enough lo trim the lead to six poinls, at 52- 46, on a basket by Steve Ken- nedy with just over four min- utes left in the game. But Malone then took over and scored Kennedy's next six points as the Cougars built it back to 58-48. Both teams were troubled with fouls. Junior Mark Ratcliff, who hit three baskets in the early going, sat out much of the remainder after picking up three first half fouls. Both Malone and Enright had four fouls in the second half and Enright eventually fouled out with lo go and Kennedy in front, 56-46. Jeff Dawson, who didn't start because of a knee injury that kept him out of practice most of the week, found the range in the second half and shared scoring honors for Wash with Dan Nem mcrs. Each had a dozen points.

(AP) The pilot of a twin-engine plane carrying members of the North Dakota State basketball squad was credited with a. superlative job following a successful emergency landing at the Sky- haven Air Park near here. "We were very' NDSU head basketball coach Marv Skaar said. "God was with us." Earl Dahl, Fargo, N.D., brought the plane down Friday withoul the use of radio or landing gear after one of the engines malfunctioned. The plane, larger than recommend- ed for the runway at the air strip, slid off the runway inlo a field, but none of the nine passengers was injured. Fine Job "He did just a marvelous said Skaar, who along with assistant coach Dave Shel- honse and five starting players were on their way to Vermillion to meet the University of South Dakota for a conference basket- ball game Friday night. "We were on the, runway for about 100 yards and in the field for what seemed Skaar added. "If there would have been anything in front of us, it would have been curtains. We just thank God nobody was injured." Lost1 Confocf Skaar said the plane devel- oped engine trouble about p.m. and landed some 45 min- utes later. Dahl lost radio contact and was unable to land the craft at the. Sioux Falls municipal air- port, some 15 miles north of the Skyhaven strip. "The pilot did a beautiful job of bringing it down... ex- said Harris Hybert- san, manager of Skyhaven. The South Dakota Highway Patrol dove to the scene, picked up the North Dakota State party and look it to Sioux Falls where cars were rented for the 60-mile drive to Vermil- lion and the North Central Con- ference game. Another plane carrying the remaining NDSU team mem- bers and oilier officials landed at Vermillion. In addition to Skaar, Shel- house and Dahl, others on board the plane were players Warner Lynn Kent, Steve Salad- ino, Dennis Schultz and Mark Gibbons. Also on the craft were WDAY sports director Earl Williams of Fargo, and Sports Editor Ed Kolpack of The Forum, Fargo Vfoorhead. The Bisons lost the basketball game 101-94.

Hempstead Gets 39 in 4th Period Al Miller Gazelle Snerti vjtiltt Jefferson high withstood a 30- point fourth quarter by Dubuque Hempstead lo pick up its third basketball victory of the season Friday night in the Jeff gym, 87-81. "It sure 'feels nice to exclained Colin Williams, the Jeff coach, "even though the score should have been 80-58 or 80-60. "I feel as if we're the Dubu- que city champs, as we've beaten Hempstead twice and Senior once for our three vic- tories." The J-Hawks have also lost nine times in the Mississippi Valley conference and 12 tunes, over-all. Hempstead is now 3-9 in the Valley, also. Hempstead shot 16 for 26 in the final a lot of easy buckets off its press- but only outscored Jeff 39-25. "It was the same old Williams explained. "We have to learn lo handle the 'panic' press. Now's the time to learn and I wasn't going to call a timeout every time we ran into trouble with it. "I thought we had a good enough lead to handle.it." Yeah, they did, thanks to 14 straight points at the end of the third period that shot their lead to 20 points at 62-42. "We went into the half with a 10-point lead and all we'talked about was maintaining that said Williams. Dean Uthoff, the 6-8 sopho- more center, was a tower of strength for the J-Hawks. He matched his season-high total of 26 points (also against Hempstead) and cleaned the boards 29 times. Uthoff had 17 points by inter- mission. He got able support from junior guard Dave Alberts, who enjoyed a season high of 1! points. Jeff also received 14 points from Guy Stoecker and 13 from Al .Selinger. Williams .was also pleased with the over-all play ol sophomore guard Gordy Nord- gren. -Hempstead, which was pacec by guard Greg Merrill's 28 points, outshot Jeff from the field, 34 baskets to 30. But the J-Hawks enjoyed their besl night of the season at the chari- ty stripe, canning 27 of 31 to 13 of 21 for the Mustangs. Hempstead (81) Jeff (87) Fg Ft Tp Fq TpFI Rmbg Hasken J. Mrt Rape G.

A big first half got the ball oiling for the Indians, now 2-9 Wamac conference play and -12 overall. In that period tfarion raced to a 37-20 lead. Anamosa was hampered by ie loss of star center Dan Veunabor, the conference's sec- nd leading scorer. Neunaber icked up three early fouls and o was forced to the bench for nuch of the game. The losers kicked off the third uarter with a six-point scoring urst which cut the deficit to 37- But Marion managed to ang on and preserve the mar- in until the final minute of lay. The mark of the fourth rame saw Marion on top by 53- 1. But then Sieve Stolze sank a pair of free throws and the ndians held on to win it. Neil Sumner had a brilliant light for the winners as he led all scorers with 20 points. He was also mainly responsible for holding Neunaber to 14, far jnder his 21-point average. Sumner got help from Jerry Crowley, who added 13, and Pom Bice, who had 11. Anamosa is now 8-4 in the conference and 12-4 overall.

For Jefferson high's wrestling team you have an impressive opening defense of its state class AAA mat title and a sec- tional championship that was a mere point shy of 100. It all happened at Prairie Friday night, as the J-Hawks; easily outdistanced second- place Prairie (61% points) Iowa City (41) and Iowa City West "I'm very, very pleased with our total said Jeff head mentor Bill.

Coe called a timeout following Van Evory's charity appearance lo set up its defense, and Carle- ton's desperation shot wasn't even close. Leon Smith led both teams with 28 points, while McFalls say publicly that his team, par- ticularly his seniors, lacked the killer instinct. The loss Friday night con- firmed his suspicion, he said.

However, OSU Coach Ralph Miller said, "UCLA is still No. 1, but I think we made some progress in the poll out there."
