Face Minnesota Next ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. j, 1973 Page 6 Late Scoring Spurt By Hawks Stings ISU IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa's basketball team has retrogressed—and Hawkeye Coach Dick Schultz couldn't be happier. "Our club is back to where it was when it defeated Kentucky and Kansas," offered Schultz after Iowa roared away in the final five minutes to topple cross-state rival Iowa State 6657 Tuesday night "We're playing even a little better defensively, a little smarter," Schultz added. "I just hope we can take it from this point and continue to grow." Iowa started the season with three victories including impressive road victories over Kentucky (79-66) and Kansas (69-56), but then lost three in a row. Now, the Hawkeyes will start their Big Ten Conference schedule against sixth-ranked Minnesota, 9-0, here Saturday night on an upturn. "They are just an overpowering ball club," said Schultz of Minnesota. "We'll have to be very patient against them." The outlook for Iowa State is less rosy. "This is the worst game we've played all year," said Cyclone Coach Maury John. "I think it was just a miracle that we were down only seven at halftime." Iowa, 5-3, roared to big leads of 13 and 14 points in the first 15 minutes, but Iowa State trimmed the margin to 30-23 by intermission. Iowa State, 8-3, finally gained Sophomores Display Trophy The Estherville sophomore basketball team proudly displays the B Squad championship trophy they captured at the Fairmont Holiday Basketball Tournament.

Coach Trojans Unanimously Voted Number 1 By HERSCHEL NKSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer Southern California's unbeaten Trojans capped a season-long stay in first place today when they were named college football's national champions for the third time in 11 years. The vote was unanimous. Southern Cal, only undefeated team in the country, capped a 12-0 season and nailed down The Associated Press Trophy and with it the 1972 national crown Monday with a 42-17 rout of Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. The Trojans received all 50 first-place votes and a perfect score of 1,000 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters in The AP poll as they officially dethroned Nebraska's 1970-71 champs, who were seeking an unprecedented third consecutive Harris: Just Wanted To Do a Job for Steelers PITTSBURGH (AP) Franco Harris said before his first season in the National Football League he just wanted "to do a job for the Pittsburgh Steelers." ' "I have a very good feeling about the Steelers," said the team's huskey, soft-spoken No. 1 draft choice at the start of 1972 drills. The 230-pound Harris, commander of "Franco's Italian Army," cracked Pittsburgh's starting line-up at midseason and exploded for 10 touchdowns. The son of a black father and Italian mother rushed for over 100 yards in seven games, including six straight, tying Jim Brown's all- time pro record. He finished the season with 1,055 yards rushing. In short, Harris ruled the field from goalline to goalline and, for his efforts, gained recognition as The Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year in the NFL. Harris, who led the Steelers to the first division title in their 40-year history, grabbed 65 of 68 votes in the AP poll of pro football writers. The remaining three votes went to Green Bay placekicking whiz Chester Marcol. "The season wasn't anything like I expected," Harris said, reflecting on his rookie year which also saw him catch 21 passes for 180 yards and return eight kickoffs for a 23-yard average. "I can't really say what I was expecting. It just wasn't what I thought it would be," he said. "It was a growing period, a time when my life just began to fall into place." The 6-foot-3 Harris said his biggest moment of the season was his freaky touchdown in the last seconds that gave Pittsburgh a 13-7 win over Oakland in the American Football Conference playoffs. Prep Scores GIRLS SCORES Clay Central 62, Sioux Rapids 54 title. Southern Cal, eighth in the preseason ratings, shot to the No. 1 spot following an opening 31-10 rout of Arkansas while top-ranked Nebraska was losing to UCLA 20-17. They were never headed as Colorado, Oklahoma and Alabama all took turns as the main challenger. Oklahoma, unanimous runner-up to Nebraska last season, again finished second. The Sooners, who blanked Penn State 14-0 in the Sugar Bowl, were the second choice of 43 voters and received 872 points. Texas, a come-from-behind 17-13 winner over Alabama in the Cotton Bowl, finished third with 667 points, barely edging defending champion Nebraska. The Cornhuskers demolished Notre Dame 40-6 in the Orange Bowl and wound up fourth in the rankings with 665 points. Auburn's Cinderella: Tigers, who weren't ranked in the preseason poll, climaxed a magnificent 10-1 season with a 24-3 trimming of Colorado in the Gator Bowl and finished No. 5 with 631 points. Rounding out the Top Ten were Michigan, Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio State and Penn State. Michigan did not play in a postseason game while Tennessee outlasted Louisiana State 24-17 in the Bluebonnet Bowl. The preseason poll predicted that Nebraska would win the national championship, followed by Colorado, Ohio State, Arkansas, Penn State, Oklahoma, Alabama, Southern Cal, Washington and Michigan.

No, insists Milwaukee Coach Larry Costello, who watched his club drop its 10th straight National Basketball Association game at Madison Square Gar- dem Tuesday night 102-92. Yes, says Jerry Lucas of the Knicks, who helped Bill Bradley pace a fourth quarter New York surge that produced the victory. Elyewhere in the NBA Tuesday night, Cleveland ripped Phoenix 111-88, Buffalo rapped Philadelphia 114-110, Chicago downed Atlanta 100-90, Boston whipped Houston 130110, Golden State defeated Los Angeles 112-106 and Portland took Kansas City-Omaha 104-87. There were no games scheduled in the American Basketball Association. Milwaukee got 38 points from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar but still bowed to the Knicks in what is becoming a characteristic fourth quarter foldup. The last time the two teams met in New York, the Knicks shutout the Bucks 19-0 over the final 5 '/2 minutes to eke out an 86-85 victory. Lucas and Bradley scored eight points apiece in the fourth quarter New York rally. The score was tied 75-75 after three periods before the Knicks took control. But don't suggest to Costello that there's anything psychological about the Knicks and Bucks. "I don't believe that and neither do my players," said Costello. "We hit them on a hot night. I don't think the Knicks can play any better. They don't beat themselves. We played good, but they played super." Bradley led New York with 22 points and Walt Frazier had 19 while Lucas finished with 13. Buffalo's Bob McAdoo scored 30 points and Elmore Smith added 23 and grabbed 15 rebounds, leading the Braves past hapless Philadelhia. Sioux Valley Captures Twinbill Sioux Valley captured a twin- bill from Arnolds Park Tuesday night at Linn Grove with the girls winning 47-44 and the boys cap- . turing an 80-60 contest. In girls' action, Arnolds Park broke an 8-8 deadlock at the end of the first quarter to take a 2019 lead at halftime. Sioux Valley came roaring back in the third quarter to take a 33-29 lead and held on for the rest of the game. Ann Cushman and Debbie Larson led the Sioux Valley girls with 17 points apiece. Jackie Fear ripped the nets for 26 points to lead the Arnolds Park girls. In the boys' contest, SieuxVal­ ley jumped to a 25-14 lead at the end of the first period and stretched it to 43-34 at the end of the half. Sioux Valley blew the game wide open in the fourth quarter with a 62-44 advantage and coasted to its victory. Jody Makse led Sioux Valley with 28 points while Gary Vos led Arnolds Park with 21. The Sioux Valley boys next compete in the Holiday Tournament at Linn Grove where they will clash with Sutherland. and Kansas State. .i .-A native of Pittsburgh, Bruce went to Ohio State on a football scholarship, but had to drop out as a player just before his sophomore season (1950) because of knee injuries. Bruce was an assistant at Ohio State under Woody Hayes during the same period when McCuIlough served as top assistant and defensive coordinator, i He also was one of Ohio's top . high school coaches before joining Hayes' staff in 1966. He remained at his alma • mater for , six seasons. \ His prep coaching record at Salem, Sandusky and famed Massillion, Ohio, was 82-14-4. . Bruce was named Ohio prep coach of the year in 1960, 1963 and 1964 and his teams won 42 straight games before he stepped down to go into the college ranks. He took the Tampa job vacated by Bill Fulcher, who .moved to Georgia Tech. Bruce's Tampa salary was re- Iowa State, was 5-6-1 under Majors last season including a 31-30 loss to Georgia Tech in the Liberty Bowl the night Majors resigned. Majors, Big Eight Coach of the Year in 1971, left Iowa State because of what he called "a more lucrative and challenging position" at Pittsburgh, which was 1-10 the past season. Majors' salary at Iowa State was $25,600 in the just completed season. Bruce was only one of three persons who was known to have been interviewed by the six- man screening committee, but McCuIlough said "we interviewed some head coaches and some good assistant coaches." The other two stated candidates were Iowa State assistant Ray Greene, 34, receivers coach, and King Block, 43, offensive backfield coach. Bruce was thought to be the leading "outside" candidate from the outset, mainly because of his close association with McCuIlough. U.S. Navy Divers Join In Search for Clemente SAN JUAN, P.R. (AP) U.S. Navy divers joined the search today for the plane in which baseball star Roberto Clemente died and the bodies of the five men killed in the crash. The Coast Guard cutter Sagebrush is searching an area about IV2 miles off San Juan where the four-engine DC 7 went down Sunday night. A spokesman said the Navy divers were asked to participate because civilian divers were unsuccessful in the search Tuesday. Clemente, the Pittsburgh Pirates' 3,000-hit outfielder, and four others were killed when the plane, loaded with relief supplies for earthquake survivors in Managua, Nicaragua, plunged into the Atlantic just after taking off from San Juan. Clemente headed Puerto Rico's earthquake relief drive. The Pirates' general manager, Joe L. Brown, arrived from Pittsburgh Tuesday and said '0 others from the team were coming Thursday to give personal expressions of condolence to Clemente's family. Gov. Rafael Hernandez Colon at his inauguration Tuesday said Clemente had been "a glory" for his native Puerto Rico. "The hearts of all of us are in sorrow," the governor told the thousands massed before the white marble steps of the Capitol overlooking the ocean. a tie at 33-33 on Tom O'Connor's basket with 15-11 to play and for the next 10 minutes the score stayed close. The Cyclones three times managed one-point leads, the last with 4:56 remaining on Clint Harris* basket. Iowa, however, then reeled off 12 straight points—four each by Neil Fegebank and Kevin Kunnert—and streaked to a 6655 lead with 28 seconds remaining. "There in the second half we had the momentum going for us, but then we just died," said John. "Iowa got a couple of quick baskets and that was about it." John said he felt his club was "mentally" tired and also added he thought the game was played at a bad time for both schools. "This game was in a poor place in the schedule for both teams," noted John, whose team scored a 97-94 victory over Iowa last season in Ames. "Dick said himself it was bad for Iowa, coming just ahead of the conference opener Saturday night. And for us it certainly was bad, coming off our tournament games." The game was Iowa State's first since last weekend when it played three games in four days in finishing third in the Big EightConference Tournament. Schultz said he was especially pleased with the defensive work of seven-foot center Kevin Kunnert, Neil Fegebank and junior college transfer Candy LaPrince. "Candy did a fine job on (Martinez) Denmon in the second half," said Schultz, "and I like the way he is taking charge of running the offense." LaPrince held Denmon scoreless in the final 20 minutes after the Senior'guard 'had eight' points in the first half: Denmon came into the game averaging 14.2 points. Kunnert had one of his better games, scoring a game-high 21 points and also pulling down 14 rebounds. Fegebank tallied 12 points and had seven rebounds. Iowa had balanced scoring as Rick Williams finished with 11 and LaPrince 15. The Hawk- eyes also held a 45-35 rebounding edge. Bill Benson and Clint Harris topped Iowa State with 14 each, but no other Cyclone hit more than nine. Iowa State has a nonconfe­ rence game with Wisconsin State-Oshkosh at Ames Saturday night and opens Big Eight play at home Monday against Oklahoma State. r EDEE~ 50 EXTRll&Hl rllEE GREEN STAMPS J I With $2.00 or More Purchase and This ammm ^ mm | I Coupon Good Thru Wed., Jan. 10 lOne Coupon Per Car Per Week Please! i BRINK OIL CO. • 1619 Central Ave. - Phone 362-9006 - Estherville • I All Credit Cards-Open 6:30a.m. to 11:00p.m. \ ******************************* _ - # * * I * * * * * * * * nmiRIE ESTHERVILLE UUUDLETHRIFT STAMPS With Purchase of $2.00 Or More And This Coupon Thurs., Fri., Sat.-Jan. 4, 5, 6 Not Good On Charges Or Contract Accounts. w COAST TO COAST STORE . ******************************* — 50 Extra Estherville • Thrift Stamps With $3 cash purchase & this coupon Expires Wed., Jan. 10 inr-v Limit I coupon per car Vr#!* Open 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. We Honor all Approved Credit Cards HAMMOND OIL CO.
