ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WE»„ JAN. 17, l»73 Page 10 Hix: Tremendous Effort by Lakers BY JIM FERREE Iowa Lakes Community Collego Coach Ben Hix, speaking in a hoarse voice, had nothing but praise for his Lakers after hp had jusi watched them fall to a very good Iowa Central of Fort Dodge team 82-76. "They put forth a tremendous effort," stated the Laker mentor. "Bob Grems, Tramen Burke and Wayne Hess played an outstanding game." With six seconds remaining on the clock, the Panthers from Port Dodge led 80-76 but Tramen Burke was fouled and Coach Hix immediately called time out. "Our strategy was to let Burke make the first free throw but purposely bank the second so we could have a chance to make a bucket and then foul them," stated Hix. Hix's strategy had worked to a tee just 22 seconds earlier as former prep cage star Bob Grems sank the first of a one-and-one foul situation. On the second attempt Grems then threw the ball hard enough to rebound and bank in two points all in the same motion. "We thought we could do the sp.rms thing that Grems had executed so well," explained Hix. Unfortunately, Burke's first attempt hit the front of the rim and non other than Iowa Central's Tony Styles grabbed the rebound to snuff the Laker plan. Styles Skinner sank both his charity shots after being purposely fouled by Doug Brandt and the game was over. But more about Styles: The 6'1" sophomore who had to sit out his first year because of being scholastically ineligible, showed a vociferous crowd in the Esthervillc gym Tuesdv night why he is one of the most sought after junior college players in Iowa. Styles literally threw in 13 field goals and sank three gift shots to give him a total of 29 points after the battle was over. But most of the damage came in the first half as he connected on seven of 14 baskets, some of them zooming in from as far out as 30 foot, to help give the Panthers a 40-30 edge at halftime. Styles finished the night splitting the net 13 out of 20 attempts for a phenomenal 65 per cent. Tort Dodge jumped to a 10-2 lead with just two minutes gone in the contest and took a 20-14 advantage with 11:49 remaining in the half. The Panthers hit three straight buckets in a scoring spurt to give the visiting team a 32-23 lead but the Lakers came on to outscorc Port Dodge 10-2 to make it 34-33 with 3:45 left in the first half. Both teams exchanged six points before the half ended with Port Dodge owning a 40-39 halftime edge. At intermission, the Panthers had connected on 18 of 33 attempts from the field for a hot 54.5 per cent. Along with Styles' seven baskets, forward Tony Lawrence cashed in on six field goals for 12 points. The Lakers went Into the locker room shooting 44.1 percent— hitting 13 of 34 shots from the floor. Tramen Ihtrke paced ILCC scoring with four buckets and sank five free throws for 13 points. The Panthers came wit In the second half and reeled off three straight buckets and outscored the Lakers 10-4 in the first 1:40 of the second half to build a 5043 lead. Iowa Lakes came within one at 52-51 with 12:25 left in the contest. The whole roof of the Esthervillc gym came off when Burke's layup put ILCC out in front for the first time at 5352 with 11:50 remaining in the match. ' But the Lakers didn't enjoy the lead very long as the Panthers bombarded the home team with four straight buckets for a 5853 advantage. "When we took the lead we had four straight turnovers," noted Hix.
