All in the Family for Kuemper Cagers By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) Next week's state tournament appearance for Kuemper won't be anything new to several Knight starters and their families. You could call it "All in the family." Starters Bob and Tom Kelly and Ken Nurse along with top reserve Tom Schenkelberg all had older brothers that appeared in the "Boys Classic." Mike Kelly along with Gary Schenkelberg played on the 1969 squad which finished second to Cedar Rapids Washington, while Dan and Jim Nurse were on the 1971 team that lost in first round action. Rick Friedman, the Knights' top scorer and top reserve guard Dave Bruner didn't have brothers who played in the state tournament, but they did follow in their footsteps. Friedman had two brothers play for Kuemper — Ron in 1967 and 1968 and Bob in 1973. Bruner's brother, John, played on the 1962 team. Nurse and the Kelly twins also had other brothers who played in a Knight uniform. Tom Nurse played on last year's sub-state squad and Pete Kelly was on the 1965 unit. "It shows good athletic- incl i ned families, " commented Kuemper head coach Wayne Chandlee. "It helps to have that athletic tradition." While defense paved the way in Kuemper gaining their third state appearance, intelligence didn't hurt. According to Chandlee, center Kevin Tessmer is an A-minus student with Schenkelberg, Friedman and the Kellys close behind. "You can go right down the line. Even our 16th, 17th and 18th players do well. "It helps to have smart Times Herald, Carroll, la. r Thursday, March 11, 1976 O kids," Chandlee said. "The fact that they're dedicated helps too," continued the Knight boss. "They all have a good outlook on life. They're the type of kids who in any situation will be somewhat successful. "They're an unselfish team," continued Chandlee. "They're very willing to sacrifice and work hard." Chandlee's preaching of defense and rebounding has paid off as they held their opponents to just 53.7 points a game and out-rebounded the opposition, 574 to 452, in a 17-2 season. "Defense and rebounding are the only two factors that can make you consistent," Chandlee said. "Defense and rebounding will be the key factor in Des Moines. Teams are bound to be tight, but put good rebounding and defense together, you do alright," the Knight boss added. "We proved that the other night against Dowling," continued Chandlee." Both teams shot poor in the first half, but in the second half, we shot better and continued to work hard on defense and on the boards." Kuemper's defense is led by quick-handed Bob Kelly. "All year long he has drawn the opponents' best guard. He has always done a good job, and he has also played well offensively," Chandlee said. "If you commit yourself to playing good defense, the offense will come," Chandlee said. Looking at next week, Chandlee said, "we're going down with the idea we can win it. Ames has to be the favorite, but they can be beaten just like any other team." About Cedar Rapids Washington, "overall they're about the size of Dowling. A very physical team. The only difference between them and Dowling is the fact they like to go inside with their big people." "I like to see guard-oriented offenses," the Knight boss said. "I wouldn't want one, but they're the easiest to beat." Chandlee, who roomed one week at a basketball camp with Washington coach Don King has much respect for him. "Don is a great coach. He'll be extremely well-prepared and he has the experience of being in the state meet before." For Chandlee and the . brothers' act it's their first state tournament and hopefully their best.

One of the top confrontations in quarterfinal action pits undefeated and second-ranked Manilla (28-0) against No. 6 Mediapolis (27-1). Mediapolis has been dubbed the Kiddie Corps team because- of its youth — only one senior, six freshmen and six sophomores on the 15-girl traveling roster. The Bullettes lost seven seniors from last year's runnerup squad, but the youngsters were equal to the pressure in handing third-ranked and previously undefeated Aplington (26-1) a 74-70 overtime loss in the final opening-round game Wednesday night. , Manilla remains the state's only unbeaten team and is loaded with talent — including two-time all-staters Jean Ros- termundt and Shelley Soe. The Hawkettes return three starters from their 1974 championship team. Manilla, coached by Larry Bullock, has had five state tournament teams since 1970. Mediapolis, guided by veteran Vernon McLearn, has been here 15 times. The teams clash in quarterfinal action at 8:30 p.nvin Veterans Memorial Auditorium. The quarterfinals start at 1 p.m. with No. 9 Ankeny (26-2) meeting No. 5 Cedar Rapids Washington (27-1). The Warriors and Manilla come on a£ shaky favorites to meet for the title Saturday night. No. 8 In wood West Lyon (261) takes on No. 10 and defending champion Lake View-Auburn (25-3) at 2:30 p.m., and unrateds Runnells Southeast Polk (21-4) and Andrew (26-2) face each other at 7:30 p.m. The teams are ranked by Mike.Henderson of the Iowa Girls' High School Athletic Union. The other three opening- round games Wednesday: Andrew stopped Adel-DeSoto 66-63, with both teams here for the fourth straight year. Surprising Runnells Southeast Polk, which finished fourth in 1974, upset No. 13 Farragut 68-63, and Manilla had trouble stopping Fort Dodge 87-77.
