SPORTS LV-A Girls Set for State By Dennis O'Grady (Sporls Editor) LAKE VIEW — Louis "Bud" McCrea, whose club opens defense of their state girls' basketball crown Tuesday night in Des Moines against newcomer, but unbeaten West Burlington, feels his club is playing better than last year's team at this point. "For the last nine games, we're playing better than a year ago," commented the "coaching wizard" of Northwest Iowa who has guided the eighth-ranked Black Hawkettes to a 24-3 mark. "For one thing, our offense is better and our defense doesn't make any turnovers. "We're more solid," the LV-A coach said. In that nine-game span, the Black Hawkettes have hit an amazing 66 per cent from the field to go with their 57 per cent seasonal mark. Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Thuriday, March 4, 1976 Louis "Bud" McCrea Sophomore forward JoAnn Tjaden is the leader with a 63.8 per cent mark in averaging 23.5 points per game. Four-year veteran Micki Olberding is close behind, averaging 21.7 points and 60 per cent from the field and 5-9 freshman Sara Wernimont hasn't hurt things with a 14,6 scoring mark and a 58 per cent accuracy from the field. "Since the first part of February, our offense has come on strong," continued McCrea whose club is working on a 14-game winning streak. But as was the case last year, defense is still No. 1 at a school that has made three trips to the state tournament in the past four years. "Our defense has carried us all year. Not only in the guard court, but also in the forward end," the LV-A boss said. Heading into the tournament, LV-A ranks second in the state defensively with a sparkling 38.6 mark. The guard court is led by all-stater Kay Pick who has outstanding statistics of 205 rebounds, 130 steals and 78 blocked shots. Helping her out are sophomore Gloria Olberding who has started the last eight games in her new position an.d senior Diane Buse and junior Debbie Cole. Being the champions doesn't seem to bother McCrea and his team either! "Our kids don't think about being No. 1. I think they did until losing this year," continued McCrea. "The pressure is off these girls. They feel they're an entirely, different club than a year ago and we're going down to Des Moines to do the best job we can." Cyclones Post 62-57 Upset Victory AMES, Iowa (AP) — "It's nice to finish at home with a win."' That's what Iowa State co- coach Gus Guydon said Wednesday after his Cyclones posted a 62-57 upset victory over Oklahoma in a Big Eight Conference basketball game Wednesday. The victory snapped a seven-game losing streak for Iowa State, but it won't salvage a 3-23 over all record — the Cyclones' worst ever.

The Cyclones trailed 34-32 at halftime but grabbed the lead for good at 50-49 on a shot by Hercle Ivy with nine minutes, nine seconds to play. Baskets by Evan Varley and Art Johnson, plus a pair of free throws by Varley, stretched the bulge to 56-49 with 4:05 left. Cary Carrabine broke the dry spell for Oklahoma when he sank a baseline jumper with 3:29 to go. He followed with a pair of free throws a minute later to close the gap to 56-55. but a free throw by Al Dixon and three of four charity shots by Johnson in the final 14 seconds preserved the victory for ISU. "We played good defense tonight, and that was one of the keys," said Guydon. "Hercle got hot in the second half (hitting6of 11). too." Til Star Vertical Type l /2 H.P.

"They haye experience and they play tough defense. They really come out after you." McCrea didn't give any prediction about his club, but Mike Henderson, publicity director of the Iowa Girls' High School Athletic Union, sees a Manilla-Lake View-Auburn title game. He just might be right. Tourney Notes: The Lake View-Auburn squad will leave Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. for Des Moines and will headquarter at the Hotel Fort Des Moines. According to McCrea, he didn't know of .any send-off celebration. As far as tickets remaining for the opening game, McCrea said there are approximately 100 left.

"I'm going with them because of their experience," Henderson said Wednesday in a telephone interview. Henderson added, "Manilla's team quickness also is a factor plus they have several girls who will be giving their last shots in athletics." With Hampton being knocked out, the team that was rated No. 1 all year, Henderson picks defending state champion Lake View-Auburn to finish second. Press Coverage Henderson said press coverage is up a little from last year and he added that he "is expecting the usual late calls for passes."

Iowa' iAP) — A former Cedar Rapids mayor wants to bury a car as part of a time capsule to celebrate America's bicentennial. "Not a Volkswagen, a Pacer or a Gremlin, and not a Cadillac, but something in between, like a Chevrolet or a Ford — depending on which car dealer would donate a car for burial." said Robert Johnson. Johnson, project director for the Mid-American Bicentennial Commission, said the commission has discussed burying a traditional time capsule in Greene Square, a downtown bark about a block in size. "Today we laugh at the horse and buggy." In 50 years "we may be wearing bottles on our backs and go squirting through the air." he said.
