' ^^^^ By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) DBS MOINES Wednesday is St. Patrick's Day and the Kuemper Knights hope to have a little bit of that 'Irish Luck' when they take on Cedar Rapids Washington in a first round Class 3A state tournament game at 8:45 p.m. at spacious Veterans Auditorium. Kuemper and Washington, champion of the rugged Mississippi Valley Conference are both making their third trips to the state meet. The two teams have met once before. That was in the 1969 state championship game and Washington won, 73-62. "It will be a matter of how hard we play that will determine the outcome," remarked Knight Head Coach Wayne Chandlee concerning the game. "They're a good basketball leap. They won the Mississippi Valley. They have to be good," Chandlee continued. Sizing up Washington, Chandlee said, "they're a well-coached club. From what I understand, they're an inside team. Their strengths are their defense and rebounding. The Kuemper boss, who has guided his club to a 17-2 mark and a No. 12 Associated Press rating, said he was planning nothing new for the Cedar Rapids school. "I hate to change anything at this point." Don King's Washington club comes into the game with a 17-4 mark, including four straight victories, the same as Kuemper. They're rated seventh by the Associated Press. The Warriors are led by 6-6 center Gary Schmidt who owns an IB.S.scoring average. Two other starters are in double figures. They are 6-1 guard Pete Seyfer at 11.6 and 6-6 John Fay at 10.7. "We think we're a good defensive club," commented the veteran King Monday by telephone. "Also, we have some inside strength when our kids are playing aggressive.'' King feels his team's depth has also been a big asset. "We have quite a bit of balance and depth. We have eight kids who have started this season." The Washington coach said it was hard to evaluate Kuemper since both clubs didn't face a common opponent. 'But from what I have learned, Kuemper is a very sound club," noted King. "They play extremely well for their height and they're well-coached. We're expecting a very interesting game." King said Ames would have to be the favorite in Class 3A. "I think the seven teams look balanced.

Tournament Notes: Chandlee said his club is happy to go. "I just hope we're going down with the idea of winning. If we play hard we can win." While the Knights have been idled for over a week, they did get in a scrimmage with the Buena Vista College players Saturday. Chandlee felt the workout was helpful. The Knight coach also had praise for the Kuemper fans. "We've had fantastic support from the students and adults. It looks like it will continue and we really appreciate it." There will be a big migration to Des Moines. According to Athletic Director Steve Garbier, 1,900 tickets have bt<m sold for the game. Little bit about both schools: —Washington's nickname is the Warriors and the school's colors are red and blue. King is a 1951 graduate of Northern Iowa. King played in the 1945 state meet in Geneseo. He coached at Nevada and Coe College 1 before going to Washington in 1966. Washington's state mark is 5-1. —Kuemper's Chandlee graduated from Loras College in 1965. He coached at Urbandale, Bellevue, Marquette and Waterloo Columbus before taking the Knights job last season. Kuemper's state tourney record is 2-2.

Media Picks Tournament Champs By The Associated Press Ames and then two scattered toss-ups. That's how the state boys basketball tournament looks to Iowa's sports writers and sportscasters, according to a pre-tournament survey by The Associated Press. Only in Class AAA, where top-ranked Ames brings a 21-0 record into the five-day tournament, is there a clear-cut favorite. The Little Cyclones, gunning for a fifth state crown, were a lopsided selection in the large school category, gaining 51 of a possible 63 votes. ' 'How can there be any other choice,'"said one writer! "It, would take a really great upset for them not to take it all this time around."
