Ames Topples Bettendorf DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) ~ There's still more bad news for the Class AAA boys' state basketball field. "Joe Morton and Chuck Harmison didn't have a good night — and we still won, so that's a good sign," concluded Ames Coach Arnie Zediker after his top-ranked team toppled plucky Bettendorf 66-56 Wednesday night. No. 12 Carroll Kuemper gets the next shot at trying to stop Ames, which came into the eight-team big school meet as a lopsided favorite. "We're in the top four now, now it's the top one that we want," said Kuemper Coach Wayne Chandlee after his club sidelined seventh-rated Cedar f Rapids Washington 57-53 in the other opening-round game. Class AAA first-round action concluded Thursday afternoon when Fort Madison, 18-2, was matched against Marshalltown, 16-5, and Sioux; City Heelan, 17-5, tested: Waterloo Columbus, 16-5. ! Ames' performance wasn't^ awesome — merely sufficient" — as the Little Cyclones boost-C ed their record to 22-0. "We won the ball game — but Bettendorf out-hustled us," said Zediker. "We had a chance early to bust the game open. We could have led 14-2 at one point in that first quarter, but instead came away with something like an 8-4 lead." Unranked Betlendorf, 17-5, led only briefly at the end of the first quarter and the start of the second before sophomore reserve Kevin Highland came off the bench and hit three quick field goals in an 8-0 Ames breakaway. The streak thrust Ames into a 20-14 lead with a little more than five minutes left in the second quarter, and the closest Bettendorf came thereafter was two points. "I really thought we played hard — but I was disappointed in our execution," said Bettendorf Coach Denny Thiessen. "We made far too many crucial mistakes — mistakes that hurt. "1 felt a couple of times if we ever got it lower than six points in that fourth quarter, we'd have a chance. But each time we'd get close, we'd Times Herald, Carroll, la. ^ Thursday, March 18, 1976 / make a mistake." Harmison, the Little Cyclones' 6-8 all-state center, had only a so-so night scoring, tallying 15 points in hitting seven of 16 from the field. He collected a game-high 15 rebounds. Morton had nine points but was only four-of-12 from the field. "It was an off shooting night for Chuck," added Zediker, ."but we're seven deep, and we had other people like Highland and Matt Burgason to pick up the scoring slack." Burgason chipped in with 14 points and connected on seven straight shots from the field after missing his first attempt. Junior center Rick Zucatto topped Bettendorf's scoring with 15 points, Joel Graham added 14 and Kurt Schmeltzer had 13. The Bulldogs were guilty of 23 turnovers, compared to 11 for Ames. "They did about everything you have to do to win a close ball game — grab the key rebounds, hit the pressure freef throws, don't make mistakes and move the ball under pressure," said Washington Coach Don King in praise of Kuemper. Neither team led by more than six points before Kuemper moved to a 43-35 advantage with two minutes left in the third quarter. Washington, however, came back and finally knotted the game at 47-all with five minutes to play. After one more deadlock, the Warriors' field goal accuracy deserted them. Kuemper moved to a 55-49 lead before Washington could get a field goal with 1:11 to play. "The way they move the ball, it's tough to take a lead away from them," added King. "Ames should have too much for them, but I think if they get a lead on Ames, you're going to see Ames really tested." A field goal by reserve Tom Schenkelberg broke the last tie and gave the Knights' a 51-49 lead with 4:04 to play. His two free thows and two by Rick Friedman in the next minute boosted the margin to six. "Our kids showed a lot of poise tonight," offered Chandlee. "We knew what we had to do in the that fourth quarter, and we executed almost perfectly." Kuemper, 18-2, was charged with only three turnovers in the final half and hit eight of nine free throws in the deciding fourth-quarter. What would it take to sideline Ames, Chandlee was asked. "We would have to do a good job on Harmison but still not neglect their other people, because they're far from a one- man ball club. "They have a lot of poise, a good bench»and are well- coached. Just a solid ball club no matter where you look. It would take a super effort." Friedman led Kuemper with 19 points, including 13 in the final half, while quick guard Bob Kelly added 13. Kevin Tessmer 12 and Schenkelberg 11. Norval Dickson topped Mississippi Valley Conference champion Washington with 15.
