(Daily News photo by Chuck Ostheimer) Schultz Not Pleased Despite Hawks Victory IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa basketball Coach Dick Schultz didn't think it was much of a basketball game as Car as technique goes, but he still settled for Iowa's 76-67 Big 10 Conference victory over Northwestern here Tuesday night. "We played very well in the last 12 minutes," Schultz said. "It was a very poorly played* ball game by both teams. "But in defense of our players, I've seen a lot of Iowa- Northwestern games and they all seemed to be like this one for some reason." The Hawkeye win gives them Graettinger Gains Double Cage Victories LAKE PARK — Graettinger had four players hit the double figures Tuesday as the boys boosted their record to 6-4 for the season with a 99-74 victory in non-conference play against Ocheyedan. Dave Ennen topped the Pirates with 23 points, Norm Nicol hit for 19, Tim Kulow 17 and John Ferrell added 15 to lead the Graettinger cagers offensively. Top scorer for Ocheyedan was Doug Knoble with 23 points. Ennen and Alvin Luke also controlled the boards for the Pirates pulling down 17 and 15 shots respectively. The Pirates, getting the entire team in the game for at least eight minutes, employed a full court press for most of the game. Graettinger also won the junior varsity contest, 46-45, behind the scoring and rebounding of Tim Millea. a 1-1 Big 10 Conference mark and 6-5 on the season. Northwestern registered its sixth straight loss and is 0-2 in the conference and 2-8 over-all. The big Hawkeye effort came from Rick Williams, who accounted for 24 points. The only other Iowa player in double figures was Harold Sullinger with 14. Iowa guard Lynn Rowat, hampered by a leg injury incurred before the season started, drew praise from Schultz. "People don't know how much courage that took for him to play," Schultz said. "He was limping all the way down the court but we needed the threat of his outside shooting." Northwestern Coach Brad Snyder felt rebounding was the deciding issue. "It's hard to come out on top when you've been outrebounded by 20," Snyder said. "We also did very poorly from the free throw line, missing six one-and-one situations, and in my book those are free points." Northwestern threw a zone- type defense at Iowa, and it caused problems for the Hawk- eyes. "When you have a club that plays that type of defense, it usually makes for a ragged game," Schultz said. "It's awfully hard defense to play against." Schultz said his squad tried to run a one-four offense against Northwestern's zone, "but at times we were pulled out of it because of their defense." Both teams had poor shooting from the field, with Iowa hitting 38.6 per cent and northwestern 37.1. Stacey Bemoaned Loss To West Texas State AMARILLO, Texas (AP) Drake basketball Coach Howard Stacey bemoaned an 87-78 nonconference loss to West Texas State here Tuesday night, despite some heroics from the Bulldogs' Dennis Bell. "What can we do?" Stacey asked. "We've tried everything in practice. We shoot and shoot, we try games, we try pressure, and then we get in a game and nothing happens." Bell came through with a career high 28 points, but he too was somewhat frustrated despite hitting an outstanding seven straight shots from the field in the first half plus two free throws. Bell's assignment was to NAME FG FT F Pts.

BY CHUCK OSTHEIMER Teamwork, outstanding efforts, fast break, defense and a 109-94 victory. That was the story of Iowa Lakes Tuesday night when meeting the challenge of Waldorf with several Wolves putting forth their best individual efforts of the sea­ son into a team effort to overcome the hot outside shooting of a pair of Waldorf guards to boost their record to 3-4 on the season. But it only gets tougher with Mason City, another of the state's top junior college fives, on their home floor Thursday night. Then it's Northwestern's J.V. there Saturday night before returning home for only the third time this season Jan. 18. "This was really our finest team effort of the season tonight," coachBenHix stated, continuing on to cite John Hanna for an outstanding game and Joe Schacherer for his best effort in several games. Bill Kramme continued to put together a fine game, collecting 35 points for the night's effort with 14 field goals and seven free throws. But right behind Kramme in the scoring column were Joe Schacherer and Hanna with 21 points each, Mel Berryhill hitting for 11, Steve Keyes and Rich Coleman sixeach, Jim Buckingham five, and Joe Pohlman had four. And right behind the Wolves' points were the easy shots, in comparison to those being taken by Waldorf. The defense forced the Forest City shooters to take the pot shots from around the top of the key while the Wolves were seldom putting the ball up further than ten feet from the Spoils basket with Kramme and Schacherer scoring the bulk of their points right in the lane. Another major factor in the game was the numerous assists as the team had 24. Hanna topped the list with six, Berryhill, Schacherer, and Pohlman had four each and nearly every Wolf in the game had at least one. Iowa Lakes jumped out in front early in the game as Schacherer, Berryhill, Kramme, and Hanna gave an early indication of what was to come by each hitting their first field goal of the evening in the first three minutes of play as the Wolves went up 9-2. The lead varied between four and eight points until Waldorf began to close the gap after the Wolves posted their biggest lead of the game, 25-16, on a tip-in by Kramme with 10:36 left to Play. Dennis Davis and George Frandle began hitting the outside shot for Waldorf and the purple and white erased the Wolves lead and took their own one point advantage, 30-29, with 6:45 left in the half. But that advantage, their only lead of the night, was short lived as Hanna, Kramme, and Schacherer again got the touch going and the long shot cooled off with Iowa Lakes pulling out in front 50-40 at halftime. The ten point deficit wasn't the only problem faced Waldorf following the first 20 minutes of action, as their center, Clarence Daniels picked up his third foul with 1:23 left in the half, and Dennis Davis had registered his third with 2:23 left. The Wolves didn't pickuptheir fifth team foul in the first half until 18 minutes of play had expired and no Wolf was in serious foul trouble early in the game. Daniels wasn't long for the game in the second half, following Kramme in the first seven seconds of play for his fourth, then going over the back of Mel Berryhill with 17:20 left to draw the fifth and leaving the game with a meager 13 points. Daniels was the lone serious scoring threat for Waldorf under the basket. And Iowa Lakes took advantage of the shakey start of Waldorf to blast out in front of the opposition by 25 points, 69-44, after five and one-half minutes of play with near perfect execution of the fast break, good rebounding, and high percentage shots in general. Although maintaining as much as a 27-point advantage, 90-63, with 7:32 remaining in the game, Waldorf continued to keep the pressure on and, along with some of the toughest officiating calls the Wolves faced all season, narrowed the margin to 11, 95-84, with 4:22 left to play. But Waldorf was put down again as Rich Coleman and Kramme teamed up to pull in front again by 19, 105-86, with 2:14 left in the game and the clock just ran out before Waldorf could successfully mount another rally in their final desperate bid for victory using pressure defense over the entire court. The pair of Waldorf guards, Frandle and Davis paced the scoring with 25 and 24 points respectively and 11 players hit the scoring column to no avail. "It really showed the desire of the team to bounce back after the Fort Dodge game," Hlx added, "but despite finally getting points on the board we still have some tough opponents left this season." Hix was also extremely pleased with the reduction of turnovers by the Wolves in the game, turning the ball over only eight times on bad passes in the first half and 12 for the game. The Wolves only put the ball up 77 times in the game with 40 of the shots being successful, shooting well above the 50 per cent mark.
