The Salina Journal Sunday, January 26,1986 Page 21 New look helps Cougars upend Mustangs ByTlMHOSTETTER Sports Writer Emotionally, coming off a tough loss to play a third-place game in a basketball tournament isn't easy. But despite some expected lows, Salina South and Salina Central produced enough highs to make an exciting third-place game in the Sauna Invitational Saturday night in the Bicentennial Center. In the end, South's Cougars prevailed, 55-52, behind 15-of-18 free throw shooting. "It was a tremendous win for our kids," said South head coach Mark O'Dell. "We were coming off a discouraging loss (to Sacred Heart) the night before and these third-place games are always hard to get up for. But we are at the point where we just SAUNA SOUTH (55) Baxter 1-5 2-3 4, Zook 6-7 2-2 14, Marlng 5-8 4-4 14, Kennedy 3-14 3-4 9, Kadel 4-6 4-5 12, Everhart 1 -3 0-02. TOTALS 20-43 15-18 55.

The Mustangs, who defeated the Cougars by five points earlier this season, slipped to 4-8. Frustrated by the lack of scoring from his post players, O'Dell shifted 6-1 Barry Kadel to post and started 510 junior Doug Baxter at a guard with Loren Zook. Bryan Maring and Bill Kennedy stayed at forwards. "The last three games, we had gotten no scoring from our post people," O'Dell said. "Kadel has been playing well and Baxter is a threat to score and makes up a better ball- handling team." Kadel turned in an outstanding game, scoring 12 points and grabbing nine rebounds. He also hit four crucial free throws in the final three minutes to secure South's win. Baxter did help the Cougars substantially against the Mustangs' pressure defense. South had been averaging 19 turnovers a game, but had just 14 Saturday. "It was our best game of the year in that area," said O'Dell of the fewer turnovers. Central head coach Dennis Wahlgren admitted his team's flatness early in the contest. The Mustangs fell behind, 8-2, in the game's first three minutes. "In a game like this, it's easy to come out flat," Wahlgren said. "South appeared to want the game a little more than we did. I think because we had beaten them earlier that they were a little hungrier." The Mustangs battled back from their early deficit to take a 28-22 lead with three minutes left in the first half. Central hit 7 of 8 field goals to start the second quarter. South came right back and Zook's two free throws with three seconds left in the first half pulled the Coug- ars to within two, 32-30. Zook scored all 14 of his points in the first half. Central had its biggest low in the third quarter, hitting just 2 of 15 shots. The Cougars made only three field goals but canned all six of their free throw attempts. Kennedy and Baxter both canned two free throws in the last 22 seconds of the quarter to lift South to a 42-36 lead heading into the fourth period. "We played tired on offense," Wahlgren said. "We did too much standing around. At times we had flashes where we moved the ball well, but overall, we didn't execute well." Four field goals by Brian Fink in a two-minute stretch drew the Mustangs to within one, 47-46 with 3:35 left in the game. Maring then scored a layup for South, but Cental's Tim Deines followed with a baseline bucket. Kadel then hit two free throws and countered a Tom Jett basket with a tip-in of a missed Kennedy shot to give South a 53-50 lead with 1:40 left. David Brummett got Central to within one again with a 15-footer from the wing with 1:20 to go. South then held the ball until Kadel was fouled with 15 seconds left. He made both to put the game away. The Cougars hit 20 of 43 from the field compared to Central's 24-of-53 shooting. The Mustangs shot only five free throws and made four. Fink led Central with 12 points. Maring added 14 points and Kennedy nine for South. 'Builders bury KW at stripe WTNFIELD — Kansas Wesleyan outscored Southwestern by 14 points from the field, but the Moundbuilders feasted at free throw line to knock off the Coyotes, 76-71, Saturday night in a Kansas Conference men's basketball game. The loss cost Wesleyan its share of first place in the Kansas Conference. The Coyotes entered Saturday's action tied for the KCAC lead with Bethany and Tabor. While KW lost, Bethany blasted St. Mary of the Plains (89-68) and Tabor whipped Bethel (98-64). The Coyotes fell to 7-3 in the KCAC and 11-4 overall. Southwestern is now 6-4 and 10-7. In the women's game, Wesleyan rolled to an 82-57 victory. ' 'You can't guard 'em from the free throw line," Wesleyan men's coach Jerry Jones said of the Mound- builders' work at the charity stripe. "They shot free throws very well (28 of 37), and we only shot 13 free throws ourselves." The Moundbuilders' efficiency at the line offset their deficit from the field, where Wesleyan made 31 shots to Southwestern's 24. ' 'We don't like to lose games any on the road," Jones said, "but losing to them is not particularly bad. It's not like losing to a team ahead of us (in the league standings)." Southwestern forward Keith Nubine hurt the Coyotes with 22 points and 11 rebounds, one of four 'Builders to score double figures. Nubine also turned in a fine defensive job, limiting Wesleyan center Russ Pleiman to only 11 points and four rebounds. "Nubine did a great job stopping Pleiman on the boards," Jones said.

Bethany rolk by St. Mary, 89-68 LINDSBORG — Bethany's men used a strong second half to defeat St. Mary of the Plains, 89-68, in a Kansas Conference game Saturday night. The Swedes, 8-2 in the KCAC and 10-8 overall, outscored St. Mary, 4534, in the second half after an inconsistent first half. St. Mary, 2-8 in the KCAC and 4-12 overall, led 12-4 early in the game before Bethany tied the game at 1616. The Swedes held a 44-34 halftime lead and let St. Mary get as close as six (46-40) with 17 minutes to play. Bruce Washington led Bethany with 16 points. Scott Hayden added 14 and Steve Malm had 12. Darrin Batman scored a game- high 29 points for St. Mary. In the women's game, St. Mary of the Plains pulled away from Bethany in the second half to notch a 62-52 victory in a Kansas Conference win. St. Mary held only a 27-26 lead at halftime and was able to hold off the Swedes in the second half. Janell Flax had 20 points and Teresa Stevens 11 for St. Mary, which improved to 8-2 in the KCAC and 13-5 overall. Three players — Daneen Brison, Ellen Calderwood and Jenny Wilson — shared scoring honors for Bethany with 10 points apiece. The loss, dropped the Swedes to 4-6 in the KCAC and 8-9 overall. MEN ST.

Those little guards really believe in themselves." They made believers out of several folks Saturday. The Knights pushed their lead to 22-13 by halftime and inflated it to 4533 when Meares stole the ball and fed Knipp for a transition layup with 4:57 remaining. ' Todd Powers — Kapaun's 6-6, 240- pound center — pulled in 10 rebounds and fueled a final Crusader rally. But once the Crusaders chiselled the margin to 4641 with 0:54 left, Knipp and Roesner each connected on both ends of one-and-ones and the Knights' championship was secure. "When we lost to Garden City by two (62-60 in their second game) — and I thought we should have beaten them — I knew then we were going to have a ball club," Mannebach said, addressing his Knights' deceiving 7-4 record. "We've really only had one bad game all year." The recent offensive proliferation of Roesner (6-4) and Prendergast (63) inside was instrumental to the Knights' tournament success, and their defensive ability to harness Kapaun's 6-6 horses — Powers and David Hartwell — was critical to the Knights' gameplan Saturday.

Lady Jayhawks rally past K-State By HAROLD BECHARD Sports Editor MANHATTAN - Marian Washington might have thought she was watching a movie re-run Saturday afternoon when her Kansas Lady Jayhawks were making a second- half run at arch-rival Kansas State. Washington had seen her team do the same thing three days earlier in Columbia, Mo., against the Missouri Tigers before losing a 77-70 decision. KU was down by as many as 16 points in the second half against MU before getting as close as two. But Saturday's game had a different ending as Vicki Adkins and Kelly Jennings boosted the Lady Jayhawks to a 69-66 victory over the Lady Cats as KU overcame a 12-point deficit with 13:02 remaining. "We were down the same way against Missouri but we just ran out of time," said Washington outside the jubilant Kansas lockerroom. "Tonight, we came all the way back. This kind of victory should give us confidence in the future." The victory, which came in front of 2,256 fans, improved Kansas to 3-1 in the Big Eight and 12-5 overall while K-State dropped to 2-2 and 11-6.

The Lady Cats dominated Saturday's game most of the way but succumbed to foul trouble and turnovers in the final 10 minutes. "We just have to learn to take care of the lead," Mossman said. "Our players have to show more maturity outthere." Adkins and Jennings combined for 42 points and 15 rebounds. Adkins, a 6-2 senior and the leading scorer in the Big Eight, scored 26 points and the 6-6 Jenning, a sophomore from Topeka, had 16 points and 10 rebounds. The two players combined for 15 of the Lady Jayhawks' final 18 points as the victory kept KU tied for the Big Eight lead. KU looked like anything but con- ference leaders in the first half as the Lady Jayhawks committed 19 turnovers and trailed 41-31 at halftime. Adkins managed just nine points in the first 20 minutes as K-State's Sue Leiding, Amanda Holley and Cindy Durham applied constant pressure on the KU star. The Lady Cats.increased the lead to 14 points (45-31) early in the second half; still led 51-39 with 13:02 remaining and held an eight-point advantage (55-47) at the 9:39 mark when Kansas made its big push. In the next two minutes, KU outscored the Lady Cats, 9-2, as Adkins scored three buckets from inside. Holley scored a free throw with 5:35 remaining to give K-State a 58-56 lead, but Leiding fouled out a short time later. Adkins then hit a five- footer in the lane to tie the score. The game was tied at 60,62 and 64 before Jackie Martin gave KU a 65-64 lead with 1:51 remaining as she sank one-of-two free throws. Martin went to the line as the result of Carlisa Thomas'fifth foul. K-State then missed two attempts before Adkins gave KU a 67-64 with a wide-open layup at the 1:14 mark. Once again K-State missed and Jennings iced the game with a 17- Washbum trips Tigers, 66-61 TOPEKA — After going three straight years without losing a Central States Conference basketball road game, Fort Hays State dropped its second CSIC road game in as many nights Saturday as Washbum pinned a 66-61 setback on the Tigers. Fort Hays State saw its 21-game CSIC road winning streak halted Friday at Emporia State, 8841, and Saturday's loss drops the two- time defending national champions to 3-2 in conference play and 14-5 overall. Washbum, ranked fourth in the nation in the most-recent NAIA poll, remained unbeaten after five CSIC contests while improving to 18-1 overall. Washburn's biggest lead of the game was a nine-point cushion with just over 15 minutes left in the game. The Tigers fought back and eventually got within one point, 6261, with a minute left but could get no closer as the Ichabods put the game away in the closing seconds at the free-throw line. The Tigers, ranked 15th in the NAIA, had trouble putting the ball in the hole, making only 41 percent (25 of 61) of their field goal attempts. As he has the past two years, Washburn's Tom Meier tore the Tigers apart. Meier, a 6-6 junior center, totaled 26 points and 9 rebounds. Senior forward Fred Campbell led Fort Hays State with 18 points and 8 rebounds. The Tigers are idle until Friday when they travel to Joplin, Mo., to face Missouri Southern, then take on Pittsburg State on Saturday.

Cheryl Jackson scored a bucket with 16 seconds remaining and had a chance to cut the lead to one in the final five seconds but stepped on the end line. Kansas ended the second half shooting a sizzling 71.4 percent from the field (15-of-21) while K-State was an ice-cold 31 percent (ll-of-35). "Anytime you beat a team like Kansas State you have to feel good about it," Washington said. Mossman, whose team has now lost two conference games at home, said the difference in the game was Leiding fouling out. "That really hurt us, because Sue was def ensing Adkins on the weak side," Mossman said. "We really had a great first half against her (Adkins), but when we goPui foul trouble, she started scoring." Tulsa tops WSU TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Forward Tracy Moore poured in 28 points to lead Tulsa to a 69-58 victory over Wichita State in Missouri Valley Conference basketball action Saturday night. The victory lifted Tulsa to a 15-4 record overall, and 5-2 in the conference. The loss was the sixth straight for Wichita State, which fell to 8-9 overall and 1-5 in the league. Tulsa jumped in front of the Shockers from the opening tipoff, and went on to hold a 33-26 lead at the half. Guard Clint Normore was the leading scorer for Wichita State, with 17 points.
