Rock Valley, Regina Roll as Coggon, Manilla Ousted DESMOINES,Iowa(AP)First-round action in the boys' Class A basketball tournament went about as expected Wednesday — considering it was St. Patrick's Day. Favored Iowa City Regina and Rock Valley roared ahead, and Corning also gained the semifinals with an appropriate hero for the day — Shamus McDonough. The 6-foot-4 sophomore dumped in 19 points, including 13 in the final quarter as Corning held off a furious Graettinger rally to post a 69-68 victory. Iowa City Regina lived up to its nickname of the Runnin' Regals with the aid of standout freshman Mark Gannon and rallied past Manilla 68-61. Tournament favorite Rock Valley kept its perfect record intact with a spotty perform- Time« Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday,, March 18, 1976 ance to oust Coggon North Linn 65-63 and set up a showdown with Regina. "We weren't going to Shamus especially," said Corning Coach Percy Stielow. "We were just taking what their defense would give us, and that little jumper along the baseline was open." McDonough hit six of seven shots from the field in the fourth quarter as Corning, 21-2, built a 66-53 lead only to see Graettinger storm back with 11 points in the final minute and 50 seconds to make the outcome very narrow. "We just never really put them away when we had the chance," added Stielow. "We should have used better shot selection, but also credit them for being more aggressive in """ the second half." 8 Corning burst to a 6-1 lead, and Graettinger had to play catchup the rest of the way. The winners' foul problems — McDonough sat out most of the second and third quarters — and some fine out-shooting helped the Pirates. Coming's semifinal opponent Thursday night will be Burnside Central Webster, 23-0, a team Stielow called "awful physical and one with excellent guards." Guard Mark Grundman added 16 points for the Red Raiders, who shot 56.4 per cent in ending Graettinger's 13-game winning streak. The four Class A semifinals teams have a combined record of 99-7 with all the defeats at the hands of Class AAA or AA teams. None of the remaining clubs has lost to an A school. That will change Thursday night and Friday. "CLIP AND SAVE" THE GREAT IMPOSTERS : Now Appearing Nightly, (Except Sun.)

PER Free adm. to our NIGHT Ioun9e for 2 Battle of the Carolina* in National Invitational NEW YORK (API-One of the solid gold shows in New York these days is "The Wiz," a modern version of that old movie classic, "The Wizard of Oz." The story involves a girl who is swept away in a root-lifting Kansas twister and finds herself in an odd, picturesque land chasing a rainbow and finding a magical wizard who makes her dreams come true. If there's anything symbolic attached to it, the North Carolina-Charlotte basketball team went to see it Wednesday night. The 49ers are chasing rainbows, too — in the National Invitation Tournament title. "This has been a dream come true for me," said Lee Rose, whose 49ers meet North Carolina State tonight in an NIT semifinal game. "I'm so shook up I can't eat." After Providence and Kentucky play the opener of the semifinal doubleheader at Madison Square Garden, the Carolina neighbors will have their Civil War. "It's really nothing personal, but I'd rather play anyone else in the world than North Carolina-Charlotte right now," said North Carolina State Coach Norm Sloan. "There's no way we can match their emotion. It isn't enough that UNC-Charlotte is a great team, that they're trying to make a name for themselves and that they want revenge from a loss to us earlier in the season. Now, their coach's wife wants the NIT championship for an anniversary present."
