The Idaho Free Hress, Thursday, February 19,1976- H Will Athletes in Action go easy on NNC? A nil! coach, In Ihe midst ola tough game Ihis season, ye/led liom the bench: "Hty, what's 90- ing on? you guys aien'l supposed to be so aggresfiM. I thought this was a Christian team." tt\ i'aulHuker l-'iecl'ress Sports Editor NAMPA -- II was Guy Lewis, the coach at Houston, who sal through a season-opening loss to Atlileles in Action and then said "I can pick 'em. can't I?" Lewis look in an 89-70 licking and shrugged his shoulders. "We may not play against a heller team than that all year."" Two months later. Athletes in Action was nuking its mark at Boise State. AIA beat Ihe pants off Ihe lironcos. 90-70. Wednesday and all I'nach Bus Connor of BSU could say was 'I'm glad we don't have to play them every night." Enter Northwest Itaarene College, an NAIA playoff team, yes, but not exactly a collection of former All-Americans. Athletes in Action comes to Montgomery Gym Friday night for a 7:30 go IJial will not only end the regular season for the Crusaders, it's now a ttmeup for even bigger tilings (See page A-l). But when coach Terry Laylon talks tuneup. why doesn't he pick on somebody easier, like the Phoenix Suns? Jerry York, the AIA publicity director, smiles when asked about Ihc game, which sort of sticks out in the Athletes in Action schedule alongside North Carolina State, Purdue. Cincinnati, Louisville. Arkansas. Houston, Alabama, and Nevada-Las Vegas. "We have a tendency to let down against smaller teams," said York. "We aren't exactly scared of NNC, but we have (o be aware of Ihem " AIA is 26-7 after the massacre in Boise. It was coach Bill Dales' team's 12th straight victory, and one (hat many of the Crusaders watched first-hand al Bronco Gym. Obviously, they were impressed. "AIA is something I really haven't thought about, we couldn't afford to." said Layton Wednesday. "Coaches have told me there's nothing you can do, anyway." York saw Ihe Crusaders beat George Fox Saturday night, and he came away saying he Nampa JV gets consolation at Borah, 47-44 BOISE -- The Nampa junior varsity basketball team claimed the consolation title al the JV tournament completed at Borah High last night, taking a -17-44 win over Caldwell. Gary Humphrey led the way for the junior Bulldogs, scoring 1C points as coach Gary Lawson's team wrapped up its season at 4-9. Nampa dropped intn consolation after falling lo Borah in the first game of Ihe tournament. The Lions proceeded lo streak through (he rest of ihe field as well and claimed the title with a 68-45 win over Capital in Ihe championship game. "Borah really had a good tournament." said Lawson. "They got hot. We had bealcn them the last time we played them, bul their press really hurt us when we played them this time." Against Caldwell, the game wds close most of the way, although the Bulldogs did hold leads of eight-to-10 points at limes. "We sort of let them catch up to us at the last." said Lawson. Caldwell was led by Danny Ozuna. who hart I! points. Gary Hayes added 12 for Nampa and Rich Kalbus topped the Bulldog rebounding charts. The Ihird place contest wenl lo Boise, which posted a 59-54 win over Meridian. was impressed. "They work hard, all the time. What really amazed me is Ihe fact that Fox was bigger, yet NNC oulhustled Ihem and oulrcboundrd them." If you haven't gnllen the word about AIA by now. Ihen remember that it is a touring group of all-blars, All-Americans, and pro draft- picks who center their play around Christ, not Ihe NCAA playoffs or a fal pay check. They ;ire carefully chosen, nol so much for Iheir obvious worth as alhlctes, but for their worth as a person. The players NNC will gel a look at Friday night include fi-s former All-American Irvin Kiffiji, 6-11 former Kansas AJl-Ainerican Danny Knight. 3-10 former North Carolina guard loll-NCAA Eastern Regional oncel lirari Hoffman, 6-B former Colorado Stale slar Tim Hall, and C-l Eldon Lawyer, from Oral Huberts. That's the starling lineup. Off the bench, there's 0-11 Doug Oxseii from Oregon Stale, G- 1 guard Charlie Neal. the Pac-8's best defensive player a year ago. and Randy Allen, last year's leading scorer (28 against Notre Darnel who couldn't crack Ihe lop five in 1975-70 Knight had 17 points and 15 rebounds agaitisl the Hrotics. Lawyer 1C including seven-of-nine from Ihe floor, and Hoffman and Kiffin 14 in a game AIA had 57-27. that's right, 57-27. at halftime. Since the Athletes in Aclion front wail is 611. ti-9, and G B. NXC will have trouble doing its usual number on Ihe boards. The Crusaders start with G-5 Darl Brunei- in Ihe middle and S - 4 ' j Honimie Lewis al forward. Those are Ihe big guys. Lewis, on a scorching tear from the floor, was nine-of-12 ngainst Fox, and York, scouting for AIA, liked what he saw. AIA wanted former NNC slar liaynor Rumpel back this year -- wanted him bail but Rumpel passed up the offer because he w;is tired of all the traveling. York says Ihc way Lewis is going, (here might be another Crusader on the road soon. "I was impressed with Rommie." nodded York. "1 lold him if he keep's working, we want him. He's going lo do nothing bul improve. I think Lewis could play for us al guard." Since AIA has no dropoff when it goes to the bench, there will be no such thing as pouring it on Friday night, says York. "Some coaches have accused us of it. but we've got stars on (fie bench." Gates, the first-year coach for AIA. "Is a stinker about defense. Heruns a lot of players in and out. like Golden Slate." "We'll never go zone," continues York. "We're a harcl-diocking man-lo-man loam. We've been criticized for it." A good way for the Crusaders lo get the feel for uliiit may a w a i t them in Klninalli Falls next week in the playoffs. Ten of tin.- 11 players arc married on (be AIA team, and ;is Gates says, "The players are the missionaries. I'm a coach. We're not a pro learn and we're nol a college team. We're somewhere in between and beyond." Since a Iryout field of 100 is narrowed down lo five players, this te:im is Ihe cream off the lop -- cupable of winning Ihc AAU nationals in March As for Nevada-Las Vegas, coming up Fol). 2H in Vegas, (bat may tie more difficult. "We're really looking forward lo that one." said York The Crusaders, naturally, are hoping AIA is looking al that mie Friday night. "At the end of the genie, we jus: don't walk off the ElcMir.' SMVS York "We stay (in lo talk to the fans, lo! tiilk nhoiit what we're doing." Listen In Kef fin lalk about AIA. "Il's a beautiful (rani ..We have God in our lives, no one is oin there playing for himself, or trying lii heal anyone out. F.vcryhndy is playing together and IhiTC 1 is terrific imitv."
