Guided bv the hot hand of Tim tlermesh, Anamosa outscored the Royals 27-12 in the third quarter. “We had a heckuva letdown in the second half," explained a slightly disappointed Regis coach Rick Westhoff . “You have to give ’em credit, we just stood around while they took advantage of our mistakes They really out-hustled us in that quarter." The fourth quarter was a seesaw battle until Tiernan put Regis ahead for good with eight unanswered points in the final two minutes. Tiernan connected on thn*e field goals and two shots from the charity stripe to put the game away. “We should have dominated (he whole game instead of just three quarters,” stated Westhoff, "I was very pleased with the way we came fighting hack in the fourth period and the offensive play of Brian Tiernan ’’ Tiernan took game scoring honors with 35 points as he hit on 16-18 field goals and connected on 3-ll) from the line.

Regina 19 62 30 oercent Bv Al Miller You aren’t going to win many games against a club like Iowa City high when you play “smart” basketball for only about 14 minutes. Colin Williams subsribes to that notion He’d just witnessed it, as his Jefferson high team bowed to the Little Hawks 87-77 in the Mississippi Valley conference opener for both dubs Friday night in the Jeff gym. “The first half was a good defensive game, but we got careless after getting them down," Williams said. "We played disorganized in the second half ” That was no understatement. But to Iowa City’s credit, the Little Hawks turned every opportunity practically into a golden one. They were down by 12 points early in the second stanza, but hustle and improved shooting, primarily, shot them into a 35-33 lead at intermission Not to mention a young gent by the name of Clay Hargrave, a 6-5 jumping jac k who was first-team all-stater a year ago as a junior. He missed his first five shots, but scored ll of his game-high 3(1 points in the big second quarter “He was shooting from out early in the game and we were happy to see that because he doesn't do it too well,” Williams explained. “But after that they did a good job of moving him back inside, lie’s a heckuva player. “Everybody says he’s the I test in the state. He might be ” Jeff's own center, 6-1(1 junior Dean Uthoff, performed well and scored 18 points, to follow forward Al Selinger’s 26. But Ct huff didn’t have Hargrave to contend with for the last four minutes of the third quarter and Williams felt his club didn’t cash in on the opportunity. “We had Hargrave out of there (three fouls) and we just didn’t get the ball to Dean,” sighed the Jeff coach “That’s not smart basketball. We’ve got to get the hall to him. “Our guards just aren’t in charge of the game the way they should be. Oh. they dominate the ball, but not the game. They aren't dictating our offense. It looks as if we’ve got to go hack to work on offensive execution. “We need some floor maturity. “ Uthoff and Hargrave each blocked two shots, but, according to Jeff’s statisticians, the Jeff pivot held a 15-10 rebound advantage Both clubs made 21 of 27 free throws, hut Iowa City hit 33 of 62 field goals for 53 percent, while Jeff connected on 28 of 69 for 41 percent The J-Hawks had the turnover (ugh*) advantage, 25-21 Iowa City guard Jeff Mar-ner, only 5-8, was a thorn in Jeff’s side all night and finished with 22 {joints. That was four more than Jeff’s three guards totaled between them. While Selinger potted 18 of his total in the first half, forward Terry Earnest responded with 15 second-half points for Jeff Iowa City is now 2-0 and Jeff is 1-1 for the season.
