T1* Idaho ftee Press, Wednesday Miirch 3 , m _ B , MountainHomegame Thursday Nampa tries to stay alive in A-1 play By Haul Rulcer Free Press Sports Editor HnnYn : r l ~ r i St ' oU says il ma ' bc Mountain Homes confidence, more l h a n anything thai provides the pivotal factor in Thursday night's sudden-death A-i ,tktr, M tournament game wilii The Tigers may think they've got sleeping dogs on iifMr iiitiius. "I don't know." said the Nampa coach Wed- "L'suay. "I think it's going to depend on how they come out." "jf they come oul with the altitude that they're really going u, | a y j t on us j llst bv s h 0 \unB up' we ran heal them." ' W e might anyway," said Scott. "The kids, emotionally, arc really at a peak and they've been putting oul. We've had good practices, they're excited. It would take an excellent ballgamc to beat t h e m , but we're capable." Scott does know one thing as the t):30 game at Capital High approaches, [f AJarnpa is to win, il will have lo stop Pal Engelhardt. "We haven't done il yet,"says the coach. "And we haven't put near enough pressure on their guards." Nampa lias a let lo do. but ihe Bulldogs aren't complaining about their position in the tournament. Because of Saturday night's last-second. 47-45 victory 1 over Calrhvell. the school has a real chance at Slate A few weeks ago. thai would have been a joke. Borah and Boise play in the 7 p.m. game tomorrow and the Braves are favored. The winner there meets either Nampa or Mountain Home, and Scotl isn't forgetting that Ihe Bulldogs ripped Boise apart in Nampa during the regular season. Of course. Boise sort of returned the favor in its gym. The fad rr-mains that the Bulldogs, should they beal Ihe Tigers, will be playing a learn they've done u e l l against in the past. Afler Thursday's play, the scene shifts lo the championsbipoii Friday night, beginning at 8:30. In the 7 p m game that night, either Borah. Boise, Nampa. or Mountain Home will have grabbed off the last spot in the Slale tournament. Then Meridian and Capital, already in. sellle Ihe district title qucslion. "I'm not sure Boise will beat Borah." says Scotl, analyzing the opener tomorrow. "1 think il will be a lough game, just because it's an intra-cily game." Scoll is even less sure of how things will go between his team i4-18) and the Tigers 112-10). Engelhard!. the mobile 6-5 center, may get the final say. If he scores at will, boards well, and gets help from one of his G-3 forwards, Rich Estes and Chris M a r t i n , school's out. "They've bealen us badly on Ihe boards," admits Scolt, "And nol just Kngclhardt. Esles has, too." Il was Engelhardl who hit 22 points and had ID rebounds last week in Ihe Tigers' 57-48 tourney loss to Capital. However, M-llome coach Lew Montrose is never one to say he's been completely drycleaned, no malter whal Ihe score. "We did Ihe things we had lo do to beat lhem,"lic said Wednesday. "Bui we just didn't get the bounces in the last quarter." The Tigers did some very positive things in the game. Krom tt-'l behind, they roared back w i t h i n 51-45 with 3:12 left. They also outreboimded Ihe Eagles.'23-21. "With a couple breaks, we had a really gond chance to upset them,"said Montrose, who adds he couldn't be happier with his club's present f r a m e of mind. "We're peaking righl into the tournament," is his observation. Nampa. then, isn't figured a pushover? "No. I think they're gonna be ready," said Montrose. "It's a tournament game. There's pressure on both learns." "We have to slop Vasquez ( A n d y ) and Stanlon (Brian). There's nol much secret Ihere. And they have to stop Engelhardt and Schiller ( M a r k i . Schiller is the Tigers' 0-1 senior guard. A good shooler, and su far unsusceptible lo Namjia's pressing game in Ihe backcourt. This time. iez. Slanlon, and rapidly-improving Handy Mardibanks will have to make sure Schiller and giwrdmale Dave Kosl feel (lie screws. Marehbanks has really increased his playing lime, nut only because of his defensive work, but Ihe occasional jumpers lie's hit in Ihe tournament. Any scoring th. .takes Ihe loid off Vasquez, Ihe region's Mo. 4 shooter, is a plus Andy, at times, has n a t u r a l l y had bad nights. And Ihe Nampa sails completely collapsed when he did, generally "Marehbanks has been a big help, and overall we've jusl gelling more balanced scoring," says Scotl of Ihe tournament. "Bui nol really enough. We've got lo lake pressure off the guard line." The key. says the coach, is (he middle. "Mountain Hume hasn't respected our middle. They've pinched the corners with their zone, been pushing lough on the wings and creating trouble ''.ir TMir guards." "Wehaven't been able logo to Ihe middle, and the middle's been wide open.' .loel 1-Varsall. Scolt Alarkus, Kay d'rondahl, and Ron Bradford are Ihe forward and center people \ilin gel the open shots when Ihe Tigers throw everything inlo the corner to .stop somebody like Vasquo/. "Whoever it is, they've got to liil that medium- range jumper for us," says Scoll. Bradford, the C-2 junior who hit the lying shot in Ihe lasl 1:10 of the Caldwell game, may gel the as-ignineni on Engelhardt in Nampa's m a n - t o - m a n defense. "We'vebeen working with him. He's a litlle more mobile lhan Joel, and in certain situations, Bradford will have him most of the time," nodded the coach. Scoll was a little mystified over Saturday night. Caldwell, after a l l , had nt turnovers. 11 was surprising the Cougars nol only stayed in (he game, but almost won it on Mark lleinrich's buzzer shot. "Yeah. I couldn't figure oul how they came so close either," said Scolt.
