SPORTS Big Last Half Lifts LV-A By Don Davis IDA GROVE - Lake View-Auburn blew Wall Lake out of the gym in the last-half of Thursday night's boys' sectional championship game here to advance to district play. The Black Hawks claimed a 61-46 victory, but only after pouring it on in the last half — outscoring Wall Lake 37-18. The loss to rival LV-A ended the Wall Lake season at 11-7. One of those wins was the only blemish on the Black Hawks' 18-1 record. The two neighboring schools played twice during the regular season with each club winning a game by seven points. Lake View-Auburn next will face Mondamin West Harrison, a 74-45 victor over Sergeant Bluff-Luton Thursday night. The first-round district action will be Tuesday at7:30inOnawa. ( Jeff Frank sparked the Black Hawks with 22 points arid 10 rebounds to lead all players in both categories. Most of his eight field goals and six free throws came in the decisive last half. The 6-5 junior drew praise from Coach Bernie Van Roekel after the game, as did sophomore Chuck Lamaak, who tallied 16 points. The 5-11 guard added seven steals. Van Roekel and Wall Lake Coach Dave Hanneman agreed the difference between the halves was the LV-A full-court 2-2-1 press. "We lost our composure," Hanneman said. "In the second half we just collapsed." But Van Roekel was singing a different tune. The Black Hawks, the .coach said, forced a lot of turnovers in the second half and "we took the shots a little bit more." In the first half LV-A was "a little too patient," Van Roekel said. His squad didn't take enough shots, he explained. And LV-A had plenty of chances to take shots in the final 16 minutes, as the press kept the ball in the Black Hawks' court much of the time. the victors shot 52.2 per cent (23 of 44) from the field, while Wall Lake netted 44.4 Don't Fight — -Staff Photo "Don't fight over that rebound Black Hawks," the Lake View-Auburn fans thought during this first-half action in Thursday night's sectional championship game.

Steve Hammerstrom scored 10 points for the Black Hawks, all from the field. Gregg Schrader tallied 11 for Wall Lake and Bill Schrader and Dave O'Tool each collected 10. Mike Olerich pulled nine rebounds down, as Wall Lake edged out the winners in rebounding 25-24. Wall Lake started the game hot, jumping out to an 114 lead before four minutes had elapsed. At the end of the first period, Wall Lake had just a two-point lead, but LV-A's Frank had three fouls. The Black Hawks tied the score at 18-18 with 4:33 left in the half, but Wall Lake pulled out to a 24-18 lead and went on to a 28-24 half time lead.

Opportunity knocks — at home — three times for the Hawkeyes in the next six days, next six days. And there is plenty at stake: a possible 20-victory season, a post-season tournament bid — probably the National Invitational Tournament — and a third-place Big Ten Conference finish. "We have the incentive for a good finish, with an opportunity to become the winningest team .in Iowa history." said Iowa Coach Lute Olson. "There is no team remaining on our schedule we can't beat." The first of the three home tests should ,be (he biggest — second-place Michigan, which is nationally 13th ranked. "We've only lost once at home and that was Indiana, so we know what we can do here, now we just have to do it," added Olson. Michigan brings a 19-5 over- alLand 12-3 Big Ten mark to the 2:05 p.m. game. The game is not being televised but being played in the afternoon. Iowa hosts the Big Ten wrestling meet Saturday night. Iowa is 18-7 overall and 8-6 in the conference and with four games remaining, has a chance to break the single-season victory mark set by the 1969-70 conference championship club that finished 20-5. ' 'Good shooting and excellent quickness are Michigan's outstanding traits," noted Olson. "We've got to contain some of that speed." Michigan won the first match at Ann Arbor 104-95 and the Hawkeyes had trouble with the Wolverines' quick guards — Ricky Green and Steve Grote. "We hope to set the tempo this time around," said Olson. "Last time we got into a racehorse game and you can't do that with them." Following Michigan into town to face the fourth-place Hawkeyes are No. 3 Michigan State on Monday night and No. 5 Purdue on Wednesday night. ''The opportunity is' certainly there, now it's up to us." added Olson. ...Iowa plans no .lineup changes for the Michigan meeting. Bruce King. Dan Frost and Fred Haberecht will be up front with Cal Wulfsberg and Scott Thompson at the guards. Thompson is Iowa's scoring leader at 19.2 points a game followed by King (18.4), Frost (16.9), reserve Larry Parker (7.7), Haberecht (7) and Wulfsberg (5.4): Something during the home stand Thompson (479) points and King (460) will probably become the seventh and eighth players to score 500 points in one 'Season..
