Dean Summa and Tim Kennedy Must Win Games For ISU AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State Coach Maury John readily admits the Cyclones' two games this week are in the "must win" category if his team is to contend for the Big Eight Conference basketball title. Iowa State, 3-2 in the conference after two straight losses, and faces co-leader Colorado Saturday in a regionally televised game. "We're still in the race, but the next two are an absolute must," said John after Iowa State was upset 90-78 Saturday night by hot Kansas. "We can't stumble now." Iowa State, 12-5 over-all, led only once— at 8-6— and had a tough time keeping Kansas^off the offensive backboard. "Their big men simply overpowered us inside," offered John. "We did not play a good game. We didn't show the enthusiasm a home team should." Sophomore Rick Suttle and 610 center Danny Knight did the damage," teaming up for 48 points and 25 rebounds. Mike Fiddelke of Paullina also hurt Iowa State.

Cherokee broke a 55-55 deadlock to reel off eight straight points as the Braves handed the Estherville Midgets a 67-64 defeat in Lakes Conference action at Cherokee Friday night. "It was a great effort by the Midgets," stated Estherville Coach George Hess. The Midgets are now 5-5 in the Lakes Conference and 7-7 overall. With 1:40 remaining in the contest, the Braves owned a 65-64 lead with Estherville having possession of the ball. "Bob Hart- man took a shot that hit the rim, then the backboard, then the rim and fell off," said the Midget mentor. Cherokee's Dude Phipps, an all Lakes Conference forward last year, sank two free throws to ice the Braves' eighth conference win of the season. It was the battle of the boards that determined the final outcome as the taller Braves, with Phipps at 6' 4", Kelly Perrin at 6* 4"l and Mark Schnoes at 6' 3" dominating the rebounding. "It was not because of a lack of effort," commented Hess, "but even Jim Ferree, Editor though we had good inside positioning we just couldn't cope with the board power of Cherokee." At the end of the first quar­ ter, the Braves owned a 20-16 lead with most of its buckets coming on rebounded shots after a miss. With four minutes left in the half, the taller Braves opened a 31-21 lead and the 18-year cage coach for Estherville immediately called a time out. Behind the efforts of Hartman, Jim Willey and Tom Hackett, the Midgets ran off eight straight points as the visitors closed the gap to 34-31 at intermission.

It was the first loss Coach Les Lammers' Midgetettes suffered in three starts as the forward court was victim of countless three-second lane violations and traveling calls. "Those fundamental errors really hurt us," pointed out Lammers. "Cherokee played good inside defense that forced us into those turnovers." , Cherokee took a 41-40 lead- into the fourth quarter but Nancy Long's bucket put the Estherville girls out ahead with 7:42 remaining in the contest. The undefeated Cherokee girls, ignited by freshman Jean Leinbaugh's basket, outscored the- Midgetettes 11-2 in the next three minutes to enjoy a 52-42 lead with 5:18 remaining in the battle. Ann Hood's layup and free throw with 2:07 left made it 5653 but the Midgetettes turned the ball over six times in the last two minutes of play as the Cherokee girls outscored the Estherville girls 6-3 in the closing minutes. "We didn't get the offensive rebounds that we usually get in the forward court," noted Lammers. In all, the Estherville girls had 17 turnovers and threw the ball away 28 times. The Cherokee girls, behind the outside shooting of Karl a File and Leinbaugh, coupled to en­ joy a 16-13 lead at the end of the first period. "We just didn't react to their defense," commented Lammers. "We hadn't really been tested in the first two games but the girls learned quite a lot in that game." The score was tied five times in the second period as ha If time came with a 26-26 deadlock. The third quarter proved to be just as exciting as the score, changed hands five times before, Oherokee owned a 37-34 lead with' 1 2:33 left in the quarter. Hood's two buckets and two free throws enabled the Midgetettes to come within one at 41-40 at the third- quarter break. "Deb Hubers played an excellent game for us in the guard court," stated Lammers. The 5' 6" sophomore collected nine rebounds before fouling out with about two minutes left in the game. Hood had another excellent night as the senior poured in 11 field goals and sank 14 free throws for 36 points. Sue Egeland and Long finished the night by finding the hoop for 10 points each. The Midgetettes were 20 of 53 from the floor for 37 per cent. Cherokee was led by Jane Hyndman's 33 points and connected on 24 of 52 attempts for 46 per cent. The Estherville girls host the Tornado girls Thursday night in the Estherville gym. 26 attempts from the floor at halftime for a very warm 50 per cent. The Midgets, behind the shooting of Chris Tullestad, Hartman, Rob Bothwell and Terry Poulos, took the lead, 43-41, for the first time in the closely fought battle with two minutes left in the third period. Hackett's interception for an easy layup, let Estherville enjoy its biggest margin of the night at the third period came to an end with the Midgets out ahead 48-45. The Midgets cashed in on 12 of 14 free throws that kept them in the game but could only manage two field goals. It was with four minutes remaining that Cherokee's eight- point scoring burst dashed any hopes for the Midgets creating an upset. The Braves finished the night hitting on 25 of 80 shots for a chilly 31 per cent. Cherokee tallied four players in double figures led by Phipps' seven field goals and three charity shots for 17 points. Estherville hit on 22 of 54 shots from the field for 42 per cent.

"The big difference," stated Terril Coach Roger Conway, "was we hit eight straight free Bulldogs Have Chance At Missouri Valley Title Drake's surprising basketball team faces two pivotal Missouri Valley Conference games this week and victories could thrust the Bulldogs into the title picture. Drake, 4-2 in the Valley after an easy 70-59 romp by Bradley Saturday night, is at Memphis State Thursday night and travels to Tulsa Saturday. Memphis State, which beat Drake 97-92 in two overtimes in a Valley opener, and Tulsa are 5-0 in the .conference to share first. "We've got to either win both games or get a split," said Drake Coach Howard Stacey. "If we win one of those games I think we still can be thinking in terms of a post-season tournament, bid." Stacey, however, cautioned that he is not removing his team from title consideration. "Stranger things have happened," he added. "The game that loom6 big now is that home loss to Memphis State. Had we won that one we would have been 5-1 and in good shape." After a slow start, Drake had little trouble against Bradley, which fell to 2-5 in the conference. Dennis Bell and reserve Larry Seger combined for 25 first- half points and the Bulldogs raced to a 37-22 advantage at intermission. Bradley thereafter never threatened. Stacey said the fact that Drake had little trouble with Bradley's 1-3-1 zone was "very pleasant to see." "Everybody says you can beat Drake with a zone defense," said Stacey. "We showed tonight that we can be effective against a zone." Bell finished with 18 points ston chipped in with 15 and Seger and Cleo Kilgore added 13 each for Drake. The winners shot 57 per cent from the floor (29 of 52) and also held a 44-26 rebound advantage, throws in the last two minutes of play." The Tigerettes owned a 13-9 lead at the first quarter break but the Cattlefeeders came fighting back to take a 23-21 lead into the locker room at halftime. Terril surged back in the third period to a 35-34 advantage and used clutch free throws in the fourth quarter to capture the win. The Tigerettes got balanced scoring from all three girls in the forward court led by Marlena Blundt's 18 points. Kris Krieger finished the night with seven assists and 17 points. Ann Cushman contributed to the winning cause with 16. Pat Fell and Julie Bird collected 16 and 11 points respectively for Everly.

In what Coach Jim Reed described as their best game of the year, the Graettinger Pirates took sole possession of first place in the Cornbelt Conference with a 91-69 pounding of Sioux Valley Friday night at Graettinger. "We played 100 per cent for 32 minutes," commented a ju- billiant Reed. Sioux Valley took an 18-16 lead at the end of the first quarter of play but the Pirates fought back to a 44-31 gap at intermission. Graettinger, behind the shooting and rebounding of junior Dave Ennen, stretched its lead to 6043 going into the final quarter as it breezed to its 13th win in 15 starts, Four Pirates scored in double figures for the Pirates led by Dave Ennen's 25 points.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) The Iowa basketball team will be cast in the role of a spoiler here Monday night when it steps back into Big Ten Conference play to battle Michigan. Iowa will take a 7-7 over-all and 1-4 conference record into 7:30 p.m. game after ending a four-game losing streak Saturday night by easily romping by North Carolina-Charlotte 72-49. "This game should provide a good indicator of how we are going to come from the tough conference losses," said Iowa Coach Dick Schultz. Iwa's four conference losses have been by 19 points including two by a basket and another by three points. The game is a crucial one for Michigan, which suffered a 7973 home loss Saturday to Purdue and is third in the conference with a 4-2 mark. "That has to be a disappointment for them," noted Schultz. "So they could come in here fighting mad or flat. "I told our players that what really counts is how we react. We might be 1-4 but nobody has beat us yet, we've beaten ourselves." Iowa will also have a revenge factor working. The Hawkeyes opened their Big Ten season with a 65-62 overtime upset of previously unbeaten Minnesota, but two nights later lost to Michigan 71-59 at Ann Arbor. "Michigan's big front line will present us with some problems and they have good quickness in (Henry) Wilmore and (Camp) Russell," added Schultz. He added he may do some more lineup shuffling for the game. Against North Carolina-Charlotte, Glen Angelino started at a guard in place of Candy LaP- rince and Reggie Vaughan started ahead of Jim Collins at a forward, ' "We'll probably have Collins in there quite a bit because, of their big front lint." added Schultz. Michigan, 9-6 over-all, starts Russell (6-7), Ernie Johnson (6-8) and Ken Brady (6-10) up front. The Hawkeyes' revamped lineup had little trouble with North Carolina-Charlotte.
