Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 26, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Wash The* Cedar ICi»ills Ga^ttr: Sat., .fan. 26, 1974 Front Line, Defense Are Big Factors By Al Miller Gazette Sport! Writer All things being about equal, you don’t win many basketball games without playing good defense. I hat was the key as hoist Kennedy stopped Washington’s winning streak at eight games, 59-54, and knocked the Warriors out of a share of the Mississippi Valley conference lead before a packed house of about 2,400 Fri-! day night. “There’s no question about our defense,” chortled Dave KHenne, the Kennedy coach. ' ‘‘Ifs been coming and tonight I thought it was just super!” When the Cougars set up on defense, they were in a zone. It was so effective that the War-, riors got no more than half a dozen second shots at the bas-! ket. Another key to the victory was; the fact that Wash—a run and gun outfit that was averaging 76 points on offense—never got a chance to get its running game out of low gear. “We stopped Wash’s running game by stopping their dribbling,” Etienne explained. “And we did that mainly by getting haek fast on defense. Wash expected to see the zone according to Coach Don King, who added: “I think the! success of their zone was the big thing in the ball game.” Understandably, the zone allowed Kennedy’s front line of 6-7 Bill Malone, 6-7 Craig Enright and 6-4 Rick Danly to enjoy a rebound advantage of six to nine rebounds, depending on which team’s statistics you wanted to accept. Wash, now 7-1 in the conference and 8-3 overall, had also made its mark in previous games with a pressure defense. But King allowed ‘‘we weren’t as aggressive as we have been and didn’t do a good job with it. ; “Of course, Kennedy probably worked a lot against the I press. They penetrated well and got some long passes for baskets and our kids were aware of it.” Etienne said his club worked, against the press about 30-35 minutes per practice session during the week and the extra wo^k apparently paid off. Turnovers Costly in 62-61 Loss tty Jack Ogden Executive Sport! Editor I Ifs a lucky thing that Jeffer-j son (.loach Colin Williams is a patient man. His young J Hawks committed 33 turnovers Friday night in their own gym as Muscatine jcame from behind in the final quarter to score a 62-61 Mississippi Valley conference basketball victory. It was the eighth game of the season that has gone down to the wire and Jeff has been on the losing end seven times. “Mistakes have been our biggest problem,” sighed Williams after the loss. “We have been weak in hall handling and the guys lark confidence in themselves.” Free throw shooting was an-| other big factor Friday, and | that is another area that has | (’olin perplexed. “We are only shooting about 150 percent from the free throw | line, and we work on that a lot, I j too,” he explained. “The thing that hurts is that we have had leads of 8 to IO in 1 about all the games that we I have lost. Our kids will just have to learn to correct those mistakes in practice.” Friday, Jeff led most of the I way after taking a 13-12 edge on a free throw by Al Selinger. They had an eight point margin, at 41-33 and 47-39, in the third , quarter. Muscatine caught up at 51 on! a pair of free throws by Brian (Lawrence, and it was nip-and-i tuck from that point on. The Muskies took the lead for good at 58-57 with 2:35 to go when Mike Hamsher hit a pair jof free throws. With 2:10 left,!

The J-Hawks wound up with j four more field goals than Muscatine. but were outshot from take a breather during Satur- of the game and ended up withdhc free throw line, 16-7. "Ay Marion Ends Losses, 81-64 WI By Larry Tanner Gazette Correspondent The streak finally came to an end and the Marion Indians weren’t too unhappy about it. up, one of the Indians would launch a bucket barrage.

The contest was not close after that. Sumner had a big night all-around. He .socked the nets for 22 points and grabbed 20 rebounds. The 6-4 junior alw) blocked several shots. Jerry Crowley, senior guard, also berobed the nets for 20 points. Kiburz had 18 and Bice IL Monti made a game of it most of the way.
