(AP) — "We made mistakes and the Grays didn't. It was that simple," Coach Vince Gibson said Wednesday night after his Blue squad lost 27-15 in the annual Blue-Gray football game. One of those mistakes came during the first minute of play. Defensive back Ken Phares of Mississippi State intercepted a pass from Tony Adams of Utah State and ran it back 34 yards for a Gray touchdown. Quarterback Don Strock of VPI, who gained more yardage than any other college back this year, led the South to victory and was named the game 's most valuable player. Even though Strock, who was also tops in passing, couldn't connect with a scoring pass in the game, he did pilot the South in their touchdown drives. •'Coach Charlie Coffey's squad was well prepared and played nearly flawless football. But we lost three interceptions and our receivers dropped too many passes and those blunders killed us," the North coach from Kansas State said. Coffey of VPI said his gray squad "did a great job," He especially praised Strock, t "He has quite a future ahead of him." Adams, who ranked just be- Adams, who ranked just behind Strock nationally in total offense during the regular season, put together one scoring drive and climaxed it with a 16 yard touchdown pass to Doug Winsiow of Drake in the first period. But most of the time he found Southerners in the way of his passes. The North's backup quarter- bac Dennis Morrison of Kansas State engineered another scoring march in the final two minutes with Martin Januszkiewicz of Syracuse diving over from the four. Rice's Mark Williiams kicked two field goals for the Grays besides booting two extra points. Brandeis Marshall 77 Quincy Holiday Tourney First Round Tenn. St. 72, Ark.

Es- The B squad tour BY JIM FERREE The Estherville Midgets will step out of Lakes Conference action when they travel to Fairmont to compete in the Fairmont Invitational Basketball tournament tonight and Friday night in the Fairmont gym. Estherville will be the only team entered in the tournament from Iowa which includes three Minnesota teams — Luverne, Montgomery and host school Fairmont. Estherville will clash with Fairmont's Cardinals in an 8:15 p.m. game after Luverne meets Montgomery in the opener at 6:15 p.m. The consolation match will be played at 6:15 Friday night with the championship game immediately following. The Midgets are coming off two highly successful road trips with Lakes Conference opponents. Estherville socked Sheldon with a 71-48 loss Dec. 15 and then rolled by Spirit Lake 77-47 to capture its third Lakes win in a row to even its conference mark at 3-3. The Midgets dumped Storm Lake 57-48 Dec. 8 to kick-off its three consecutive Lakes victories. A usually strong Fairmont team has had its troubles this season and are going into the tournament with a 2-5 record while the Midgets overall mark. "Fairmont will have the tallest player we will face this year," said Estherville Coach George Hess, "but we'll be playing the same type of game we've been playing." The type of game Mess was referring to is waiting for the open man and taking the best percentage shot. Estherville averaged 51 per cent from the field in its last three outings and is averaging nearly 50 per cent from the field for all games played. But the Midget mentor is particularly happy with the balanced scoring he is getting from his depleted lettermen squad. Estherville's lone returning lettermen Bob Hartman is averaging 14 points but not far behind are Rob Bothwell and Terry Poulos shooting at a 13.8 clip. "Bothwell has been the most steady of the group," commented Hess. Another plus for the Midgets which has made Hess real happy this year has been the bench strength. Against the Indians Dec. 22, the bench, led by Jim Willey's eight, came in and contributed 24 points. Brian Guge is the leading percentage shooter from the field connecting on 35-58 for 60 per cent. Chris Rullestad has sank 22 of 43 from the charity line for 83 per cent. The B squad tournament will be with the same pairings as for the varsity. Game times are 2 p.m. ami 3:15 p.m. both afternoons. Varsity games admission is $1 for adults and 50 cents for students. For B games, it's 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for students. iniiniiiiimHiNuuniiiiiinniiHiiHiHiiinHHti LAKES CONFERENCE STANDINGS WON Drake's Bench Stings Iowa Spencer Cherokee Estherville Storm Lake Sheldon Emmetsburg Sibley Spirit Lake 6 5 3 3 3 2 1 1 LOST 0 1 3 3 3 4 5 5 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Drake's bench strength. There is no better way to capsulize Drake's 98-80 dumping of Iowa Wednesday night in the 23rd renewal of their cross- state basketball rivalry. Reserves Craig Davis and Cleo Kilgore finished with a total of 44 points and Drake had little trouble with Iotva after a nip-and-tuck first 14 minutes. "They snuck in there and did a super job," beamed Drake Coach Howard Stacey after his team upped its record to a 7-1. The pair of supersubs teamed for 23 points in the first 20 minutes and Drake held a surprising 43-30 halftime lead. "They had super shooting from their reserves," said Iowa Coach Dick Shultz in what might be an understatement. "You just don't expect two guys to come off the bench and hit like that—and from where they did." Davis, a junior forward from East Moline, 111., finished an amazing 11 of 12 from the field and added three of three free throws and Kilgore was eight of 12— from the 20 to 25-foot range — and also perfect on three free throws. The sterling relief jobs are nof anything new for either, and didn't earn them a starting nod. "Why not keep it the way it is," stated Stacey. "Craig does his job best coming off the bench, and it seems the same with Cleo." Davis' shooting night merely added to a shooting percentage that him hitting at a .697 clip going into the game, and now stands at a torrid .756. "This has to be my most rewarding win since I've been at Drake,'' said second-year Coach Stacey, whose team was an 89-83 loser to the Hawkeyes at Iowa City last season. "I think our quickness and speed to to them— especially on offense," continued Stacey. "This was a fine team effort, if we can continue this it will be hard to beat us." The one-rebound edge (50-49) that Drake held over the taller Hawkeyes also pleased Stacey, Cyclones Crush Nebraska; Advance to Semi-Finah GAMES THIS WEEKEND Estherville in Fairmont Invitational Tournament Sibley in Sibley Holiday Tournament Cherokee in Holiday Tournament at Sioux City Emmetsburg in Holiday Tournament at Humboldt Spencer in Harlan Tournament at Denison lllltllllllUIIIIIUIIIMIMUUMMIIiiHUIilllMMMI KANSAS CITY (AP) - Undefeated Oklahoma and once- beaten Kansas State are favored to win their games in the Big Eight Conference preseason basketball tournament tonight and join Missouri and Iowa State in the semifinals. Oklahoma, 6-0 and 19th ranked, opposes Oklahoma State, 25. Kansas State, 16th ranked and the defending Big Eight champion, risks its 7-1 record against Kansas, 4-4. Missouri, the nation's No. 7 team, kept its record unblemished as expected by walloping Colorado 98-78 in one of two first round games Wednesday night. In the other, Iowa State whipped Nebraska 75-64. Both ' Oklahoma and Kansas State expect tough tests in their tournament debuts since both are playing bitter state rivals. The Sooners, minus four starters from last year, have a freshman star, 6-foot-9 Alvan Adams, who has picked up a lot of the slack left by the departure of the quartet of Oklahoma regulars. Oklahoma State has three regulars • back, Kevin Fitzgerald, Dave Fisher and Ralph Rasmuson. Kansas State is loaded with talent, including veterans Danny Beard, Ernie Kusnyer, Steve Mitchell and Lon Kruger. Wildcat Coach Jack Hartman, appraising his current team, says, "We obviously miss the rebounding of David Hall." Hall is the only starter missing from a year ago. Kansas' lone returning regular is Tom Kivisto. However, the Jay Hawks have two outstanding sophomores, RickSuttle and Dale Greenlee, and 6-10 Dan­ ny Knight has become eligible with the start of the second semester. Missouri, 9-0, gave the rest of the tournament teams something to think about in its game with Colorado, 3-4. The Tigers put on a dazzling display of shooting, connecting on 63.4 per cent of their floor shots. The Missouri starters hit 71 per cent. The Bengals, with Orv Salmon and Mike Jeffries sinking long outside shots often, never trailed and built up a 16-point lead midway through the first half and led by as many as 28.
