MickiOlberding Kay Pick Angle Sommers Kim Peters SondraShull Sue Petersen Jane Heilskov Pick, Olberding Named to All-State Teams DES MOINES - (IDPA) Hampton and Andrew each placed two players on the coveted first unit of the Iowa Daily Press Association's girls' all-state basketball teams announced today. Jane Heilskov, Hampton's high scoring forward, is considered one of the best outside shooters in the state, while Sondra Shull. a sprinter in track, is regarded as one of the quickest guards around. The two set the pace for Hampton which finished the regular season as the state's top-rated team. As long as memories linger, Kim Peters will be remembered as that guard from Andrew who drew a standing ovation at the girls' state tournament for her razzle-dazzle play in spite of the fact that she has a deformed arm. Her teammate, Angle Sommers, was rewarded with a first team forward berth for her spectacular shooting. Although Andrew finished fourth in the state, Sommers was first in scoring with 180 points. The state's leading scorer, Vicki Decker of Garnavillo with a 48.4 average, was a shoo-in for the first team.

Lake View-Auburn's Pick was a unanimous selection by sports writers for the first team guard court. Pick was very instrumental in leading the Blackhawkettes to their second straight state championship as they defeated Manilla to take this year's crown. It was Manilla's first loss in 31 games and certainly the Hawkettes deserve recognition for a fine season. IDPA sports writers named guard Shelley Soe to the first team. The remaining forward spot went to Sue Petersen of Cedar Rapids Washington, a school that probably has done more to date to advance girls' basketball in large schools than any other in the state. Washington, which finished third in the state tournament, landed three players on the all-state squads. Chris Gorman, a guard, and Debbie Franklin, a forward, were both named to the second unit. This is the 30th year that the Iowa Daily Press Association has selected an all-state girls' ' basketball team. The IDPA, One-Point Win in to Corning DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The little kid and his scrappy teammates are going to play for the big trophy. "That little kid might have won it for them," commented Coach Jerry Patterson of Burnside Central Webster after his team was upset 53-52 by Corning in a Class A semifinal game of the boys' state basketb a 11 tournament Thursday night. "His leadership and ball- handling gave them a lift. He did some nice things for a freshman." The "little kid" is 5-9, 140- pound reserve guard Mark Jones of Corning. He didn't score the winning basket — and in fact missed a free throw that would have tied the game — but he exemplified the Red Raiders' exciting triumph. He hustled all the time. "It looked after the first half, that we were going our separate way, but we talked at halftime and decided to come out and do it together," said Corning Coach Percy Stielow. And the Red Raiders did. Downtown Carroll FURNITURE CENTER • Quality Furniture • Wide Selection • Lower Prices • Free Delivery OPEN SUNDAY 1-5 P,M r PRENGER FURNITURE West Hwy. 30, Carroll Vicki Decker which is comprised of 39 daily newspapers having a combined circulation of more than 600,000, selects five teams with eight players per team. The selections are based on year-round play, not just tournament play alone. Although a committee of IDPA sports writers makes the final selections, coaches play a vital role in the selection process as each coach is polled prior to the state tournament. This year, more so than in recent years, "balance" was the key to victory. Cedar Rapids Washington, for example, had a balanced scoring attack with Petersen finishing the season with 994 points while Franklin has 932 points. Although Pick was the sparkplug for the Lake View-Auburn champs, the club had good balance. Besides Pick, forward Micki Olberding was named as an all-stater. Because of illness she missed six ball games early in the season, but she finished strong and was named to the fourth all-state squad. Her clucth free throw shooting in both the semi-finals and finals helped Lake View-Auburn clinch the title. It was reminiscent of a year ago when Olberding scored a basket with 16 seconds remaining in an overtime to lead the Blackhawkettes to a 51-50 win over Mediapolis. Jean Rostermundt of Manilla has the distinction of being the only one of this year's 40 all-staters to have been named to IDPA's all-state teams for three consecutive years, each time to the second unit. Besides Rostermundt and Franklin, the second team forward court consists of Teresa Albright of Farragut who hit on 68.4 per cent of her fieldgoals, tops in the state, and Lee Ann Uhlenhopp of Aplington who was the third leading scorer in the state IOWA DAILY PRESS ASSOCIATION'S GIRLS; ALL-STATE BASKETBALL First Team Forward Forward Forward Forward Guard Guard Guard Guard Forward Forward Forward Forward Guard .

Top Two Struggle 9 But Win By The Associated Press Indiana and Marquette have scrambled into college basketball's heavyweight championship 10 days too early. The Hoosiers, unbeaten and ranked No. 1, outfought Alabama 74-69 and the Warriors, once-beaten and ranked No. 2, struggled past Western Michigan 62-57 in the Mideast regional of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night at Baton Rouge, La. That puts college basketball's two top-rated clubs in the regional finals Saturday. The survivor goes into the final four and the loser goes nowhere, a victim of the draw. Neither coach was overly impressed with his team's showing. "Tough, wasn't it?" asked Indiana's Bobby Knight after his club ran its season record to 29-0 with the help of Scott May's clutch basket with 2:01 remaining. NEW YORK (AP) — They played "Beat The Clock" at Madison Square Garden — and Kentucky and North Carolina-Charlotte did just that. Those college basketball teams advanced to the finals of the 39th National Invitation Tournament with two incredible finishes in Thursday night's semifinals. Kentucky twice lost big leads and had all but lost the first game before Larry Johnson's dramatic field goal at the buzzer provided a tingling 79-78 victory over Providence. North Carolina-Charlotte needed a basket by Melvin Watkins with 30 seconds re- maining to stop North Carolina State 80-79 in an intense battle of intrastate rivals. That set the stage for Sunday's championship game between two teams that did not figure to reach the finals.
