Beloit cagers keep record perfect The Salina Journal Tuesday, January 21,1986 Page 13 ByTIMHOSTETTER Sports Writer Entering this week's Crossroads Classic at Belleville, Beloit boys' basketball coach Pat Blackburn is pleased. That's not surprising. After all, the Trojans are 9-0 and ranked fourth in Class 4A in this week's state rankings by The Salina Journal. Last Friday, Beloit took a big step toward a North Central Activities Association championship by edging Southeast of Saline, 58-57, on a last- second shot by Shannon Snedden. The win was not only important for Beloit because it was on its home court, but also as a confidence- builder. Southeast also entered the contest with an 8-0 record and ranked second in Class 3A. Beating a quality team like Southeast solidified Blackburn's team's confidence in its capabilities, especially when it had to come from behind in the last minutes after having blown an 11-point lead in the third quarter. "Our kids never get down on each other," Blackburn said. "We haven't been behind at halftone yet, but we've had problems in the third quarter. Against Southeast, our shots just quit falling and Southeast started hitting. We fell behind, but our kids fought back and got the big shot at the end of the game, again." It was the third time this season that Beloit won a game in the final seconds. Smoky Valley and Sacred Heart were earlier victims. Despite the 9-0 record, Beloit fans are careful before bringing up state competition in March. The Trojans make frequent appearances with the elite in football and wrestling, but basketball is another story. The Trojans haven't earned a spot in a state basketball tourney since the 1977-78 season. The Salina Journal's basketball rankings BOYS CLASS 6A School Record I.Kansas City Wyandotte(l) 7-1 2.

Rexford-Golden Plains (5) 9-0 (Last week's ranking in parentheses) Blackburn created instant excitement when he came to Beloit last year. He inherited a team that had gone 3-38 the last two seasons. It was no surprise that Beloit fans were stirred into a frenzy when the Trojans zipped to a 6-1 start. Great anticipations didn't last, however, as Beloit went just 5-8 the rest of the way to finish 11-9. "This team is better," Blackburn said. "We have a lot of experience and a deep bench. We have no stars, but a lot of college coaches will see us and say 'that's a good team,' because we play well as a team." Blackburn points to the improvement of 6-5 junior Brent Lindblad as another key to Beloit's strength this season. Lindblad starts with four seniors. Roger Pierce and Kevin Marozas Hornets top Dunkel ratings EMPORIA — Emporia State took over the top position in this week's NAIA District 10 Dunkel Ratings. The Hornets, 14-1, posted road victories last week over Central States Conference opponents Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern. The wins improved ESU's Dunkel rating from 53.8 to 55.0 as the Hornets overhauled two-time defending NAIA national champion Fort Hays State. The Tigers, however, didn't have a bad week themselves. But despite wins over Kansas Newman, Missouri Western and Wayne State, FHSU's rating fell from 54.8 to 54.3. The next seven positions in the men's ratings remained unchanged with Washburn third (49.3), followed by Pittsburg State (42.9), Marymount (39.4), Kansas Newman (37.5), Kansas Wesleyan (32.2), Tabor (31.4) and Friends (29.8). In the women's poll, Friends held onto the No. 1 position with a 2.0 rating, while St. Mary of the Plains (2.2) and Marymount (4.0) remained second and third, respectively. Kansas Wesleyan lost two of three outings last week to slip from fifth to eighth place. MEN DUNKEL RANKINGS School Rating 1. Emporia State (14-1) 55.0 2. Fort Hoys State (14-3) 54.3 3.

Tim Caldwell is the team's best defensive player. He's held Sacred Heart's Darren Knipp and Southeast's Steve Fritz — the NCAA's top two scorers — far below their season averages. Snedden supports Lindblad inside. Neither of those players was the top scorer in the win over Southeast, however. Senior Troy Weber supported Blackburn's comments about his bench by scoring 15 points in a reserve role. Although he was discouraged by his team's play in the first half against Beloit, Southeast of Saline head coach Stan Vaughn was encouraged by his team's second-half comeback, which saw every starter contribute offensively. "We got good scoring out of some kids who haven't been scoring much," Vaughn said. "That's what was encouraging about the game. It should've given those kids confidence for later." Southeast's first loss cost it a position in the 3A rankings. The Trojans are now third behind No. 1 Wabaunsee and No. 2 Central Heights. Hesston is fourth and Hillsboro fifth. Atchison remains top-ranked in 4A. Colby slipped to third after losing its first game of the season last Friday to Hoxie. The Eagles did come back the next night to whip Hays. While 2A remains unchanged, 1A saw some shuffling. Claflin is still first and Bazine second, but Mankato jumps to third, Quinter is fourth after losing to Wheatland Friday. Wheatland moves into the fifth spot with a 62 record. Those two losses have been to Quinter. Defending 6A state champion Kansas City Wyandotte lost for the first time this season last Friday to Kansas City Schlagle. Wyandotte blew a 16-point lead in the last five minutes and finally lost in overtime, 70-68. The two teams have split two games this season. They meet again at Wyandotte on Feb. 18. Topeka High remains third in 6A after rallying from a seven-point deficit in the final 3:19 .to defeat Manhattan, 59-57. John Morgan's layup with one second left gave the Trojans the 1-70 win. There's not one change in the girls' state rankings. Burrton still tops the highly- competitive 1A class. Canton-Galva — its only loss to Burrton — remains atop 2A. Chase County is No. 1 in 3A. Concordia — winner of 34 straight games — is first in 4A. No. 1 Buhler continues to roll in 5A and Topeka West reigns over 6A. Southeast nips Halstead, 39-37 HALSTEAD — Steve Fritz scored 15 points and Dan Stutterheim added 13 Monday night to lead Southeast of Saline's boys to a 39-37 victory over Halstead in the Adolph Rupp Invitational. The Trojans, 9-1, were tied 21-21 at halftime but outscored Halstead, 116, to give themselves some cushion for the fourth period.
