Olberding Sisters Spark LV-A Rally, 44-41 4 . . / ^^*^^^ - ^^^* ^^ By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) DES MOINES - Glotta Olberding came to the rescue here Tuesday night for Lake - VieW-Auburn as the defending state girls' champions toppled fourth-ranked West Burlington, 44-41, in a match-up of the state's two best defensive teams. ' ' Gloria, a 5-8 sophomore who scored eight points in last year's 51-50 championship overtime win over Mediapolis, entered into the forward court with 5:12 remaining in the 1 third quarter with the Black Hawkettes trailing, 27-22. The move by Head Coach Louis "Bud" McCrea paid off as Miss Olberding sank seven of 10 field goals and added one free throw for 15 points. It was three straight baskets by Gloria that carried LV-A from a 36-32 deficit heading into the final quarter to a 38-36 lead with 4:52 left. "Gloria came through," commented McCrea afterwards as he saw his club's mark go to 25-3 on the season and lipped their winning streak to 15 in handing the Falconettes their first loss in 27 starts. "We figured we had to go with her. She's the kind of girl that- if she gets hot, can do it," continued the LV-A coach who chalked up his 147th win at the • school. "She likes pressure," McCrea added. "She likes to come through.", Gloria's sister, Micki, didn't hurt the winning effort either as she led the team in scoring with 17 points, including two pressure-packed charity tosses with 36 seconds left that gave the winners a 44-41 edge. The Black Hawkettes, who entered No. 1 in the state in defense at 38.6, put it to good use in the final quarter as they held West Burlington without a point during the first five minutes and 33 seconds. Leading the way was all-state guard Kay Pick who Was a demon on the boards, grabbing a game-high 13, many of them coming in the closing quarter. Besides Kay Pick's fine effort, her sister, Diane, A 15-year-old sophomore, came in and did an exceptional job along with senior Diane Buse and junior Debbie Cole. "Diane (Pick) played quite a bit early in the year when Buse was out," remarked McCrea who was a bit drained from the comeback win. "Diane played well," continued McCrea. "She played an awful lot of junior varsity this season." Lake View-Auburn shot 58 per cent from the field in the opening half to West Burlington's poor 29 per cent, but the Black Hawkettes found themselves behind, 23-19, as they shot only 12 times to the losers' 24. "In the first half, we wouldn't shoot the ball," the LV-A head man said. "Nobody wanted to shoot. In the second half I told the girls to put the ball up." Lake View-Auburn ended up hitting 51.5 per cent. Besides the Olberding sisters in double figures, JoAnn Tjaden added 12 points, 10 of those coming in the first half. For West Burlington. Cindy Gaule collected 20 points, including 12 free throws and Tammy Crafton added 13. The Falconettes' guard court was headed by Karry Crafton, a 6-foot sophomore. Carroll Daily Times Herald Section B Carroll, Iowa, Wednesday, March 10, 1976 Page 13 who grabbed seven rebounds to go along with three steals. "Both teams showed their defensive power,'' commented West Burlington Coach Delmer Walker. "Offensively, both clubs looked below par." Walker, who had his team in the "Sweet 16" for the first time, felt not being able to match-up with Gloria Olberding inside was the difference. Lake View-Auburn quarter-final round opponent at 2:30 p.m. Thursday will be 26-1 West Lyon of Inwood. West Lyon, rated eighth in the final ratings as compared to LV-A's 10th, sped past Clarinda, 78-59, as sophomore Cindy Dreessen popped in 43 points. "They'll be lough," remarked McCrea. "We'll have to stop their post (Dreessen) and their outside threat, Deb Hoogeveen." Box Score: Lake View-Auburn FG FT PF TP Tjaden 5 2-8 2 12 M. Olberding 5 7-8 2 17 Wernimont.. 00-1 10 G.

The owners took salvos from two different directions Tuesday. On one hand, Marvin Miller, the executive director of the players' association, leveled a blast at them, accusing them of issuing misinformation and trying to divide the players. But the biggest blast of the day came from the relative calm of a courtroom in St. Louis where a three-judge Appeals Court ruled unanimously against the owners and affirmed the decision of arbitrator Peter Seitz, who granted free-agent status to pitchers Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally. It effects only the two pitchers this year — but if the decision stands and no compromise between the players union and owners is forthcoming, it could mean every player without a multi-year contract could be a free agent by the start of the 1978 season. It was the second court setback for the owners. They have only one more appeal — the U.S. Supreme Court. The players' 24 player representatives, two league representatives, plus Miller and players union counsel Dick Moss will be holding an executive board meeting Thursday in Tampa. They invited the 24 club owners to attend but the invitation was accepted instead by the owners' Player Relations Committee and John Gaherin, its chief negotiator. The next official bargaining session is set for Friday in St. Petersburg, Fla. Tuesday's three-hour session, the 26th thus far, ended in acrimony with Miller charging the owners with "negotiating over our heads . . . Their public relations campaign creates a lo,t of problems, We have to spend a lot of time-correcting the mis- information that the owners put out." ' MilKer said he had uncovered an attempt by one club — he declined to identify it — to put out a phony survey of its players. He said the players were asked one question, then the players' answer to a different question was placed on a telegram. Miller also said the recent public statements of several players was proof that the owners were conducting a ''campaign of misinformation. We .can't spend our time continually putting out the fires ... I'm not complaining. I'm merely explaining the results of their action." Miller said a major problem remaining was the owners' insistence that he retroactively strip his players of their rights won in the Seitz decision and now upheld by two federal courts. The owners insist any basic agreement would retroactively cancel out the , Seitz decision, which allows ' every player with a 1976 individual contract to become a free agent in 1.977 if he doesn't sign for 1976 and in 1978 if he does sign in 1976 but refuses to sign for 1977. Miller says taking away the players' free agent rights would open the union to potential damage suits. Two of his suggestions to end the retroactivity problem, he said, were again rejected by the owners. In one, he would try to get as many players as he could to sign waivers of their rights won in the Seitz decision. Meanwhile, the players and owners would arrive at a collectively bargained change in the reserve system and a new collective agreement. The owners would decide on what they consider a non-tolerable number of non-waiver players, then match that figure against Miller's number of waivers. "If the non-waivers are under the tolerable figure, we'd have an agreement," Miller said. "If not, all bets are off." The second suggestion would be for Miller to get permission from his executive board to allow teams to approach players individually about inserting special covenants in their contracts. In those covenants, a player could promise not to play out his option for an individually agreed-upon number of years. In the meantime, while appeals and negotiations go on, spring training camps remain closed ° n 'he owners' orders, exhibition games are being canceled and the start of the 1976 season is being threatened. The owners have said they won't open the camps until an agreement is reached or there is real progress towards reaching one. ..'• Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. who could order the owners to open the camps and get activity under way, has thus far remained pretty much out of the picture. "I continue to urge daily meetings between the two sides in an effort to get this thing solved. If they will really stick at it, I am confident they can get the job done," Kuhn said a fter Tuesday's bargaining session.
