t Ames Overwhelming Favorite in Class 3A DBS MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ames, Ames, Ames. When the discussion turns to the possible Iowa Class AAA boys basketball champion, the Little Cyclones' name repeatedly comes up. "I don't think there is any more pressure on us than anybody else down here," commented Ames Coach Arnie Zediker. "It's the same for all of us now — none of us can afford to lose once." Top-ranked Ames, 21-0, comes to the tournament a lopsided favorite to pick up its fifth title. According to a pre-tournament poll of the state's media, Ames received 51 of a possible 63 votes. "I suppose we would have to be a heavy favorite with our record and our experience," admitted Zediker, whose squad finished second to Des Moines Lincoln a year ago. "It's hard to tell if this is a better team than a year ago— but we might be. The record says we are but last year we were very strong. We played the third, second and No. 1 ranked teams in the state tournament — and finished a strong second." But before you hand the hardware over to Ames, consider these factors: —"If we shoot well — and we did most of the season — we'll be in the game all the way. The pressure is on Ames, not us," commented Bettendorf Coach Denny Thiessen, who meets Ames in the AAA opener Wednesday night. —Marshalltown, which lost to Ames twice during the regular season, is one of the eight qualifiers. The Bobcats own four titles too — and two of the crowns came in years ending in 6—1956 and 1966. —Cedar Rapids Washington is in the same bracket with Ames. The Mississippi Valley Conference champions are 5-1 in state tournament play, with their only loss coming in the 1966 title game against Mar- shalltown. Bettendorf, 17-4, opens the eight-team tournament Wednesday night against Ames and No. 12 Carroll Kuemper, 17-2, tangles with No. 7 Cedar Rapids Washington, 17-4, in the other first-night game. Fort Madison, 18-2, meets No. 8 Marshalltown, 16-5, and Sioux City Meelan, 17-5, battles Waterloo Columbus, 16-5, to complete first-round play Thursday afternoon. "We are quite similar to the team we had down here last year," said Zediker, who took over the helm when George Duvall stepped down after Winning the 1973 state crown. "We like to get out and run, if we don't have the break we run a patterned offense designed mostly to get the ball inside to (Chuck) Harmison." An all-stater as a junior, the 6-8 center is regarded'by many as Iowa's standout prep player this year. He's averaging 22.7 points a game and 13.7 rebounds and shooting 64 per cent from the floor. 1 'We are shooting 48 per cent as a team, so we have more than just Chuck who can put the ball in the basket," added Zediker. Rob Klingseis (11.8), Matt Burgason (11.2) and Joel Morton (10.5) add balance. "We're real high on Morton," said Zediker. "He's been our clutch ball player — in fact that's-his nickname — Mr. Clutch." Bettendorf is making its first state trip after a dramatic turnabout in the substate. The Bulldogs trailed tournament veteran Dubuque Wahlert by 12 points in the first half, but rallied for a 56-54 victory. The Valley runnerup starts a sophomore, two juniors and seniors Kurt Schrneltzer and Joel Graham, who are the scoring leaders at 17.4 and 15.1 points a game. "We feel that we are a sound ball club with just as good a shot' at them as anybody," said Thiessen, who scouted Ames in the substate. "We are a good shooting team — 49 per cent for the season — and that what it takes against a team like Ames." Like Ames, Marshalltown is making its 16th state trip and second straight. "Based on the record and ratings, sure Ames is the favorite," said Marshalltown Coach George Funk. "But when you get down to eight teams, anybody has a chance. "We've played some of our best ball late in the season and if we play as well as we can, we have as good a chance as anybody." Marshalltown has won nine of 10 games since a mid-season 20-point loss to Ames. Six-foot-eight senior center Rick DeVolder powers Timet Herald, Carroll, la. -y Tuesday, March 16, 1976 / "" •"•••IIIMMItMiiilll««llli|i llltt(l , mlr the attack with 17.3 per game scoring. "Our other people have developed offensively and that has helped quite a bit,"added Funk. "We use nine kids quite a bit and they all contribute." Washington's four losses were by a total of 17 points — and three came in the Valley. They are 13-2 since an 87-80 setback to city rival Jefferson and those two losses came on the road by a total of three points. "This team had made more improvement from the beginning of the season that any of the previous nine teams I've had here," said Coach Don King. "This is an extremely unselfish group," explained King, who owns a 139-67 record and four Valley titles at Washington. "Every player, not just the top eight, has his own unique contribution to make, his role to play. Our players complement each other very well." Senior Gary Schmidt, a 6-6 center, leads the firepower with an 18.4 scoring mark followed by Pete Seyer at 11.3 and 6-6 John Fay at 10.9. No. 12 Carroll Kuemper and streaking Fort Madison, a couple of relatively short but quick teams, might be the sleepers in the field. "They (Ames) are not unbeatable," commented Carroll Kuemper Coach- Wayne Chandlee. "They're very physical and hurt you inside. A team would need to neutralize Harmison inside and that's going to be difficult." Independent Kuemper's losses came at the hands of two Sioux City teams — Heelan and West, but the Knights were impressive in earning their third state tournament berth. They rallied from a big deficit to topple Fort Dodge at Fort Dodge and then knocked off strong West Des Moines Dowling in substate. Rick Friedman, a 6-4 forward, is the offensive leader with an 18.6 scoring average and Bob Kelly is averaging 14.8 a game. Unrated Fort Madison rides a 13-game winning streak into its second state berth in three years. The Bloodhounds only loss after an opening setback was by two points at Carthage, 111. "We have the second best record of the teams in the field," commented Coach Jerry Slykhuis, "but we may not have played the same competition as the others. "We have heart and the kids are unselfish. That can't hurt you. We're a run-and-shoot club and I think we have begun to peak at the right time." Fort Madison, the Southeast Seven Conference champion for a third straight year, has no starter bigger than 6-3 but all five are hitting in double figures. Dave Clay leads the way with a f7.6 average followed by Jim Meierotto (14.7), Kirk Listerbarger (11.6), Lonnie Emard (10.8) and Mike Anderson (10.5). Heelan, which claimed the big school football title last fall, is somewhat of a surprise qualifier. The Crusaders were second in the Sioux Interstate behind city rival North, which lost in the district. Al "Too Tall" Jones, an all- stater in football and starter on the 1974 team that came to the state meet undefeated, leads the scoring parade with a 14.1 average followed by Mike Mike Courey at 14.0. Waterloo Columbus, a strong finisher for the second straight year, is the third parochial school in the field. The Sailors got a big lift in the district when they knocked off strong city rival East 93-80 in three overtimes. Junior guard Randy Richards is the leader with a 20.8 scoring mark but has received balanced support from Craig Giblin (15.1), Mark Webber (11.5) and Kevin CoughlirH 11.1). Class AAA semifinals are slated for Friday night and the title game will be the second half of the concluding Saturday night doubleheader.
