SPORTS Kuemper's Poise Strikes Down Washington By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) DES MOINES - Kuemper's trademarks all year have been team effort, poise and defense. The mh-ranked Knights showed all those ingredients and more as they sidelined No. 7 Cedar Rapids Washington, 57-53, in first round Class 3A boys' state tournament action here Wednesday night before 9,500 fans. The victory moved the 18-2 Knights into a 3:15 semi-final round game Friday afternoon against top-ranked Ames. Ames won their 22nd in a row, a 66-56 victory over Bettendorf. The out-sized and scrappy, never give-up Knights secured their triumph over the Mississippi Valley Conference champions with 19 seconds remaining when junior Ken Nurse tossed in his only points of the game, two free throws, to give Coach Wayne Chandlee's club a 57-51 lead. Kuemper built-up their biggest lead of the game, 43-35 with 2:08 left in the third quarter on a pair of baskets by sophomore reserve Tom Schenkelberg, but the Warriors, who close at 17-5, pulled to within 43-41 heading into the final quarter. The Knights then went ahead 47-41 on two free throws by Kevin Tessmer and a basket by the game's top scorer, Rick Friedman, only to have the Cedar Rapids' school come back to knot the gameat47-allwith5:101eft. Both clubs traded field goals before Kuemper went ahead for good with 4:08 remaining on a Schenkelberg jumper. Schenkelberg, who tallied 11 points, added a field goal moments later for a 53-49 lead. "I really don't know what to say, except that it was a super effort," commented Chandlee afterwards. "Once again, we were out-sized, out-muscled, but the kids have been doing it all year."

"They kept their poise down the stretch." Chandlee said the turning point in the game was when Kuemper went up six points in the fourth quarter at 55-49. "Our defense came through, giving them only one shot." The Knights' stall in the closing two minutes was also very instrumental in the victory. "The kids showed super poise in that stall," added Chandlee. "We were always one step ahead of their people." Kuemper out-shot and Coaching Honors to Veteran FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) — In more than 40 years, Joe Retton has come a long way even though he has not traveled very far. The Associated Press' College Division basketball Coach of the Year for 1976, Fairmont State College's Retton has stayed close to home and compiled one of the most enviable records in college coaching. Some coaches' move around constantly for better positions, but Retton hasn't even changed counties. The coach of this season's AP college division regular-season champions, Retton has stayed in his native Marion County, W.Va., his entire life. "I was born a West Virginian, and I'll die a West Virginian," Retton once said. And despite numerous feelers over the years from a number of both major and small colleges, he has kept true to his vow. And he's become a living legend in this sometimes coaldust-choked Marion County and West Virginia region. "I've been blessed with fine . athletes, kids who have been willing to work and play in our 'system,'" Retton said recently in recalling his Fairmont career that includes 344 victories and only 55 losses — a winning mark of nearly 87 per cent. "The kids w.ho haven't played the way we want them to, well, they've left," Retton said. "The kids who have stayed on our teams were the ones that were willing to become complete team players." A former high school teacher and coach, Retton took the Fairmont State job some 13 years ago after an incredible seven-year prep record of over 90 per cent . winning basketball. The West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference hasn't been the same since. 8.00-16.5 ALL TERRAIN 4-wheel drive vehicle tire A natural for maneuvering on "Baja- type"surfaces!

Kuemper held a 32-28 edge out-rebounded the taller Warriors. The Knights shot 47.8 per cent from the field to Cedar Rapids' school's 42.6 per cent. Friedman led Kuemper, hitting seven of nine shots and closing with 19 points. Bob Kelly played his usual strong floor game and ended with 13 points, followed by Kevin Tessmer with 12 and Schenkelberg with 11. Lightning-quick Norval Dickson led Washington with 15, followed by two six-foot-six on the boards with Friedman and Tessmer each grabbing seven. Schmidt and Fay had six apiece for the losers. In the turnover department, Kuemper committed 14 mistakes, but only four in the second half, while Washington errored 12 times. Tourney Notes: Looking at Friday's battle with Ames, Chandlee commented, "their size presents the biggest problem. Harmison (Chuck) is a great player, but he also has plenty of help." Chandlee's wife, Judy, is expecting a baby. She's 11 days overdue. The couple has three boys. Assistant Coach Lou Galetich has fond memories of state tournament play. His 1953 St. Mary's of Clinton squad won the state championship. Kuemper will have no school Friday and Carroll High will let out at 11:05 a.m. •According to Al Stroh, superintendent of Carroll Community Schools, approximately 100 kids from Carroll High School will be going to the game. The Knights' victory was their fifth in a row and lifted their state tournament record to 3-2. Washington saw their four-game winning streak- end. Their state tournament mark is 5-2. This writer might be wrong, but the turnout by the Kuemper student body and fans was the largest of the four schools.

Tessmer didn't have his hands full -Staff Photo all the time as he scored 12 points to help Kuemper to 57-53 victory Wednesday night in opening round state tournament play. By The Associated Press Giving anything away to the UCLA Bruins can be costly. Giving them the homecourt advantage can be fatal. The perennial NCAA basketball champions appear on the threshhold of another West Regional title this year, given the odds of a relatively weak field and the surroundings of cozy Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. The fifth-ranked Bruins, who won 98 straight games at Pauley before a loss to Oregon late this season, are heavily favored against Pepperdine tonight in one of two West semifinal games. Nevada-Las Vegas takes on Arizona in the'' other. "I'm happy to be home," said UCLA Coach Gene Bartow, whose Bruins took the Pacific-8 Conference title and won their way into the regional semis with an opening-round victory over San Diego State last Saturday. The Bruins, perhaps not as strong as in previous seasons when they won 10 national championships in 12 years, will have an easier time getting out of the West than other teams in the far-flung NCAA playoffs. The most powerful of the fields will be in the Mideast Regionals at Baton Rouge, La., where Indiana plays Alabama and Marquette faces Western Michigan. All four teams are ranked in the nation's Top Ten — No. 1 Indiana, No. 2 Marquette, No. 6 Alabama and No. 10 Western Michigan. In the East, undefeated Rutgers, 29-0, seems to be the class of the field. The fourth-ranked Scarlet Knights play Connecticut and DePaul meets VMI at Greensboro, N.C. Rutgers, incidentally, can have the best single-season record in NCAA history by winning the national championship. If the surprising team from New Brunswick, N.J., goes all the way, the Scarlet Knights will wind up with a 33-0 record. • Calculators • Adding Machines • Typewriters STONE'S Hwy. 30 Downtown Carroll , Kuhii Orders Major League Clubs to Open Spring Drills NEW YORK (AP) - Play ball!
