Estherville, Iowa Hy JIM FEKHKK Iowa 1-akes Community College will host the first Laker Invitational Basketball Tournament Friday and Saturday nights in the Estherville High School gym. Four teams, two from Minnesota and two from Iowa, will face off against each other with Worthington and Anoka-Ramsey kicking the tournament off at 7:00 Friday night followed by Iowa Western of Clarinda facing Iowa Lakes of Estherville, at about 9 p.m. The winner of the Anoka-Ramsey, Worthington game will face the winner of the Iowa Lakes, Clarinda contest for the championship Saturday night at approximately 9:00 with the losers of Friday night's contest clashing at 7 p.m. In the opening game Friday night, two teams from Minnesota will battle it out beginning at 7 p.m. Worthington has to be seeded the favorite in the two day tournament because the Blue- jays have been the Minnesota JC champion the past three years. Seven returning lettermen head a squad that includes four starters from last years 21-4 ball club. According to ILCC Coach Ben Hix, Coach Arlo Mojick's Blue- jays are noted for their good team play and should be the team to boat in the Southern Minnesota JC Conference. Woitliiiigton is currently undefeated with a 4-0 mark. Wortliington's opponent will be Anoka-Ramsey of Minneapolis. Coach Byron Hill's 1-3 squad has gotten off to a slow start but Hill attributes it to tough competition in the early season. Anoka will be the biggest ceam in the tourmanent averaging 6'7" in their front line with Steve Tharp at 6'9", Bill Schroer, an all-state pick at 6'8", and Rick Johnson at 6'6". Anoka lias several all-conference picks and all- state players from Minnesota schools. ILCC's opponent in the second round contest immediately following the Anoka-Ramsey Worthington game will be highly touted Iowa Western of Clarinda. Iowa Western sports a 2-4 record but Coach Walt Stanton says their record is very misleading. Clarinda lias played some of the tougher teams in the Iowa JC conference but pounded Grand View of Des Moines 82-76 in their latest outing. Iowa Western sports the conference scoring leader in Ted Thompson. Thompson rated by Coach Stanton as the best guard in the conference, is scoring at a 31.3 clip. Clarinda's big men Daryl Davis 6'6" and Darrick Grilfin 6'7" give them a good inside game with Davis averaging a little over 10 rebounds a game. Hosting the tournament, which Iowa Lakes basketball Coach and Athletic Director hows to make an annual event, will be the ILCC lakers. Coach Hix feels that his year's squad is one of the best he lias ever had and that the 3-1 record the Lakers sport is no fluke. The Lakers are currently ranked second in the state in offensive scoring — averaging 96.3 points a game. Bob Grenis, who starred as a prep under Estherville Coach George Hess, and Abner Nibbs are ranked 11th and 18th respective in scoring with 21 and 18 points per game. ILCC's latestvictimwasa 10186 shellacking of Boone Junior College last Saturday night at Emmetsburg. But Laker mentor Hen Hix still isn't satisfied. "Offensively we have been scoring well but I feel we should be doing an even better job in that area. We also must improve our defense if we want to keep winning in the league." The Lakers own a 3-1 record and arc tied for 10th with Clinton in the Iowa JC Conference. "So far I have been pleased with our play," noted Hix, "and I tli ink we are learning and improving as the season moves along." First round action in the tournament will get under way at 7 p.m. Friday with the Anoka-Ramsey vs Worthington game followed by the Clarinda vs Iowa Lakes Laker contest Consolation action Saturday night will begin at 7 with the championship game immediately following.
