Zediker Won't Compare Title Club PKuemper at State Tournament DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — After Ames proved what almost everybody knew, the question arises: Was the 1975-76 Little Cyclone basketball team one of the state's best ever? "I haven't been asked that, but I have been asked to compare the 1973 title team and this one — and I won't," said Ames Coach Arnie Zediker. "Each team is different and great in its own way." But in the wake of the top- ranked Little Cyclones 75-48 triumph before a record crowd of 14,815 in the Class AAA title game, Zediker did mention that the 24-0 mark was the first time in the school's distinguished basketball history that a team has been undefeated. "And I think our margin in the three state games was one of the better one's in history — 10, 17 and 27 points. We improved each game which showed that this team could handle pressure." The title game was almost totally Ames despite plenty of coaching moves by Marshalltown's George Funk. "Ames had all the ingredients for a title team — and they used them well tonight," said Funk after his eighth-rated team became a victim of Ames for the third time this season. What made Ames so great? Here is Zediker's assessment: "We had an outstanding big man in Chuck Harmison, an outstanding floor general in Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, March 22, 1976 Joel Morton, solid forwards in Matt Burgason and Bob Klingseis and three underclassmen — Sam Fouard, Kevin Highland and Ted Potter — who blended in." But if there was one thing that made Ames invincible it was defense — and the tournament gave ample evidence of that. "We took a lot of pride in our defense and it was always our most consistent part of our game," Zediker said. "That's why we were 24-0—defense. "There is no excuse for a bad defensive game, because defense is merely hard work." The top four scorers off the title team all graduate, but Zediker believes "we can be a good ball club again. But teams like this don't come along very often." The Cyclones' rugged regular season schedule, especially in the Big Eight Conference, also played a factor in claiming the title, the third-year coach said. "Look at the record. Big Eight teams won the state title this year and in 1974 and 1973 and had seconds in in 1972 and 1975. I don't think any conference can match that record." Ame-s and Marshalltown were caching making their 16th state trip. The title was Ames's fifth and puts them second on the all-time list behind Davenport Central (9). Other Ames titles came in 1936,1945,1955 and 1973. 4-PLY POLYESTER CORD FIRESTONE DELUXE CHAMPION A78-13 5-rib design Blackwall Plus S 1.74 F.E.T. and old tire.
