TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 3 1936 GLOBE - GAZETTE SPORTS STOECKER, HERT HONORED IN ALL IOWA CAGE LIST (Continued From Pale It) it encountered. When the other side had the ball, the vise-like Little Cyclones choked off every attack on their basket when it was important to the Ames cause that the score become no closer. Owens' sterling play was a major feature in the champions' defense. Midget Is Star. . Little Bob Menze, whose 121 pounds do not seem to include an ounce of nerves, was the Ames candidate to place on the second team, while Hilary Ryan, the stingiest player in the state tourney when it came to giving his man points, was named center on the third team. Kyan almost completely choked off Stoecker in the state finals, holding the Mason City hotshot to two baskets. Menze was placed at second team guard, even though he has been listed as a forward all season. The records to the contrary, Menze really was a guard. Cool as the traditional cucumber, deceptive, Menze shared the task of bringing the ball down the floor for Ames. His dashes through the enemy's lines of defense for short shots and baskets were the despair of Ames' opponents. Simmons Is Tops. L e n v i 1 Simmons, Davenport's snapshooting forward, easily won a first team berth at forward. Nearly every coach and official who saw Simmons play voted for him in the poll. Harold Packard, flip shot artist from Ottumwa, and Don Fleming of East Sioux City, were the other first team forwards. Packard bore just about the whole load at Ottumwa, carrying his team almost singlehanded into the semifinals of the state classic. Fleming, the pride of East Sioux City, was one of the main reasons why Mason City had to go through a thriller in the district finals to eliminate the Sioux City entrant. Webster City, the surprise team of the state tourney, had most of the punch in the large frame of Don Shelton, fast traveling and hard shooting center. Shelton had his troubles against Stoecker, but nobody else did very much with him, especially when he went into one of his scoring streaks on under-the- basket work. Shelton was paired with Stoecker as one of the IDPA's first team pivot men. Logan Hard Worker. Logan's best ball team in years featured Kenneth Pettit, who fills one o£ the first team guard posts in . th^mytliicaVselectioiis. 'Pettit. is. one ofsthose guards wio -takes She' ball off both backboards, such procedure · being an accepted trait of a hard working and capable defender. Pete Kalinich of Waterloo East and Owens are the other first team defense men. Kalinich had a sensational record this year. Always assigned to guard the star basket shooters, he never allowed his "man" to get more than two field goals all season. In fact, 19 players succeeded in scoring 23 baskets against him all season. Burlington's fine team is represented on the second squad by Ralph White, a forward who never wa s held scoreless. The offensive punch in a team which was rated by many observers as the best in the state, White found the hoop for 224 points during the season. Jerry Pooler of Iowa City and Ralph Grange of Waterloo West are the other second team forwards, two brilliantly versatile players. Neither Beats Davenport. Ted Miller.of Dubuque and Niles Jack of Vinton rate the second team center jobs. Miller had a great record, once hanging up 20 points to .lead · Dubuque to victory over the great Davenport team.- Basketball's 10-point men rate on a plane with track's ID-second men. Niles Jack, a 6 foot 3Vz inch pivot man, was even better than that this season. He averaged more than 13 points a game for the year. Jay Cox of Creston came to the state tournament unheralded anc unsung so far as this section of the state was concerned, although southwest Iowa was well acquainted with him, especially the high school basketball forwards. Cox performances here lived up to his home district's expectations. In fact, many observers thought he was the best guard in the state tourney. Cox, Hert and Menze fill the second team guard posts. No smal part of Mason -City/3 effectiveness depended on Hert. A veteran, with the aplomb that comes with skil and experience, Hert shared the job of keeping the Mohawks' head above water many times when the cause looked hopeless. Gordon Js'amed. On the third team, St. Ansgar's Fred Gordon, John Reilly of Roose veil, Cedar Rapids, and Russ Love of Albia rated forward jobs. Al three came into court with enough support to give the leaders for firs! and second .teams pleny of compe tition. Ryan of Ames and Koberg of East Sioux City placed in the select group as third team centers while Strassburger'a running mates at guard on the third team are Glen Snider of Sharon and Junior Nash of Central Sioux City. Both latter lads were mainstays of their teams. Snider is the only Class B player to rate all-state recognition, although several came close enough to be listed in the honor roll. The Iowa Daily Press association through its member papers wil present players or. all three mythi cal all-state teams with certificates describing the honors they have won. LUNDBERGTAKES ALLEY CONTESTS Mickey Mouse, Butter Bread Get Games by Default in Playoff Tussles. D. K.
