ll AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLIS InKV M * •UNI HiHBIH Garrigan nips Alumni for 7th win of season FOR A COACH that never took Algona high school to a state tournament (or Britt either prior to that), Bob King has gone a long way since he came to Algona 15 years ago this fall. . .right now his University of New Mexico Lobos have a 7-1 record and prior to the start of the season, were rated as - the No. 10 outfit in the entire nation by the respected SPORTS ILLUSTRATED magazine. From 1950 until 1957 while coaching here, King compiled a fine won-lost record but not nearly as glittering as that of present Coach Howie Stephenson. His teams twice reached the sub-state finals but never went all the way (although his 1954-55 club was one of only eight teams left in the state tournament series but in that year, only four teams went to the state finals). King left here for a three-year stint as assistant to Sharm Shuerman at Iowa U. and then spent three years as head coach at West Rockford high school in Illinois. . .and I believe he took his club to the state finals one year there. He then got the call to New Mexico, which had a history of losing basketball games, but no more. . .he had a winner his first year, has gone to the National Invitational in New York the past two years and is currently the favorite for the Western Conference title. . .SPORTS ILLUSTRATED picked the 20 best pre-season teams a couple of weeks ago (Iowa was ranked No. 14) and here is what the magazine had to say about No. 10 New Mexico. "When Coach Bob King cautiously revealed that the Lobos might speed up their tempo this season, the fans in Albuquerque, Tucumcari, Socorro and Truth or Consequences just grinned in disbelief. "The response," King himself admitted, "was a quiet snigger." King's teams are known for a slow, deliberate ball-control style that at times looks like the CBS stop-action reruns. In this age of basketball a Go-Go, King has been the sport's answer to the siesta. Though agonizing to watch, this style has won games. In King's three years at New Mexico the once lowly Lobos ihave had three winning seasons and have been no worse than fourth in defense in the nation. "King is a defense specialist. His conference is noted for fast-rampaging Injun-raid techniques, but he. favors the discipline of the outnumbered cavalry; overpower 'em at the stockade first, and then carefully counterattack, making every shot count. Even when the Lobos launched an offensive, the ball handling was so careful that King rightfully described it as a "defensive offense." Last year's point man, Skip Kruzich, would nurse the ball through the mid- court, and then play catch with Dick Ellis—back and forth, never taking any chances—until the moment of the sure thing came. It got so that the home folks would groan and King would wring his familiar red towel whenever the scoring, by either team, seemed to be occurring too fast. Kruzich and Ellis are gone now, but King has had lots of other players learning the same pace. "So why speed up now? Maybe because last year's Lobos started with 19 wins in their first 22 games and then finished with five straight defeats? "Not at all," says King. "It's a matter of personnel." Like the old cavalry colonel with his first full complement of experienced troops, King foots he now'has 4he depth to attackHFhere are eight > regu-. lars and only one is a sophomore. Leading an all-junior starting five are Mel Daniels, 6 feet 9, and Ben Monroe. They started every game as sophomores and led the team in rebounding. Daniels was also the team's top scorer. Point Man Don Hoover and Wing- men Bill Morgan and Ed Burwitz feel like crafty old combat sergeants this year too. "Deep down inside we are all runners," Monroe says, "but Coach King taught us that a good slow team will beat a fast-break team. We'll increase the pace this year but not lose what we had. We have the potential for a breaking team, and our opponents will know it. Last year, when they were sure we weren't going to break out, they could bring up every man and hit the boards with all they had." The last two New Mexico teams went to the NIT; this year it looks like the NCAA for the Lobos." Meet Pocahontas and Bancroft in weekend games Garrigan tuned up for its two big games this weekend by crushing the Alumni 63-49 before about 500 fans last Wednesday night in a benefit game in the Bear gym. Proceeds, of which there were about $400, will be used for a new whirlpool at the school. Coach Steve McCall used reserves during much of the game but got a fine 18-point effort from Don Potthoff. Dick Muller led all scorers with 19. Dick Bleich, who has been hampered by blisters on his feet, bagged four and got five steals in the one quarter of action he SPORTS MONDAY.

LeRoy Heinen contribu- ,ed seven points and Chuck Heinen, Bill Hall and Lee Froehlich had six each. Garrigan travels to Pocahontas to meet Catholic high Friday and then returns for a home game against St. John's of Bancroft here Saturday. The Bears are now 7-1 for the season.

Clear Lake handed Clarion its third defeat in conference play last Tuesday. 61-55 at Clarion and if the Bulldogs win Tuesday, it will pretty well mean a Clear Lake and Algona race to the wire. This is not to say that both clubs won't fall a time or two along the way but with every club except Humboldt now having at least three losses, a hot streak for either the Lions or Algona could mean the title. Coach Howie Stephenson has been drilling his men every day through the holidays, with a number of scrimmages with the alumni home for Christmas included in the action.

Young's win in the finals was a big one. He was behind by a 4-0 count early in the match but came back to outpoint his opponent in the final period to win the 138 Ib. championship. Martin had relatively little difficulty in winning the 154 Ib. championship, and is now the only Bulldog mat team member to remain undefeated for the year. Tom Fitzpatrick. who was unbeaten prior to this meet, lost a close one in his the first round 3-2 when his West Waterloo opponent got an escape with seven seconds remaining in the match for the one-point difference. TAKING SECOND place in the varsity meet were Tom Samp (127), Russ Shaw (145) and Bob Bradford (180). Junior varsity: Don Camp (127), Larry Taylor (145) and Bruce Bennett (165). Third place finishers were: Varsity — Paul Watkins (95), Larry Munger (112), Max Miller (165), and Tom Fitzpatrick (Hwt.) Junior varsity — Larry Olson (95), Phil Bode (154) and Brad Farnum (Hwt.) Next outing for the local mat- men will be a dual meet here against a strong Hampton tean on Saturday.

Back in the lineup for the first time since being injured several weeks ago were Roger Becker and Steve Vaske. And they helped provide the winning punch in reserve roles. Becker, the ex-Lakota star, popped in 20 points to lead all scorers while Vaske had nine. Mike Carpenter and Bob Hatten each hit 13 points for the winners. Leading Ledyard again was ugene Dontje with 21 while Ron Johnson had 14 and Rich Lloyd 10. Ledyard held a 33-28 Schmidt 20 31 36 41 41 48 54 la.
