ILCC Hits Chilly 24% ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, FRL, FEB. 2, 1973 Pig* | Worthington Rolls Past Cold Shooting Lakers By JIM FERREE "You can't shoot 24 per cent from the field and expect to beat very many ball clubs," commented a dejected ILCC Coach Ben Hix following the Lakers 91-57 trouncing by the Blue Jays of Worthington at Worthington Thursday night. The Lakers connected on 14 of 48 shots from the field for a chilly 29 per cent in the first half while Worthington, Minnesota's JC champions the \ast three years, was hitting a warn 46 per cent- hitting 23 of 50 attempts from the home court maples. Things didn't get any better in the second half as ILCC could only connect 11 of 53 field goals for a freezing 20 per cent. The Blue and White cooled down to Jim FIWM, Editor 3? per cent in the second half, hittitv; 21 of 56 from the floor. "The disappointing thing was our hustle," stated Hix. "When things didn't go right on the offensive end we wouldn't get back down the floor and try to help ourselves by playing tougher defense." It was evident by a glance at the score book that Iowa Lakes had many thoughts, maybe of winter's newest white blanket, but few were turned to playing basketball. Bob Grems was well below his average of 22 points by finishing the night with six field goals and 13 points. Tramen Burke, who scored 31 points against a tough Creston outfit Tuesday night, was held to just two buckets. Henry Bruce, a6' 4"freshman from Indianapolis, led all ILCC scorers for,the night by pumping in seven baskets and sinking three free throws for 17 points. Bruce also grabbed 11 rebounds as ILCC dropped to 11-9 overall in the non-conference contest. The game wasn't even close as the 1972 Minnesota state champions sped to a 17-6 lead and then stretched the gap to 20 points with 15:47 gone in the game. The Blue Jays owned a very comfortable 47-33 advantage at intermission while Mike Kirkwood, a 6' 3 l /2 " sophomore center from Worthington banged in 15 of his 23 points at halftime. Blue Jay Terry Tendler threw in 10 of his 14 points he ended up with at halftime. "All you can. do after a game like that Is hope you learned from it so that you try to prevent it the next time you have a poor shooting night," stated Hix. Iowa Lakes gets back into Iowa JC action when it clashes with Ted Thompson and Clarinda Saturday night at Emmetsburg. Thompson was voted the most valuable player in the ILCC tournament in December and is rated the number two scorer in the nation for junior colleges. DAVE DEBUSSCHERE of the New York Knicks is an all-star forward and good-looking enough for a shaving commercial. But he also appears to be leading the league in facial contortions. Big Ten Wins in Pro Draft Memphis St, Uses Zone Press to Rock Bi MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Memphis State claimed undisputed possession of the top spot in the Missouri Valley Conference Thursday night with a 7368 basketball victory over Drake. It was the 13th consecutive victory for the 17th-ranked Tigers who have won six straight in MVC play. Drake held a 6-point lead with eight minutes remaining in the half when Memphis State Coach Gene Bartow called on the freshman-tinged zone press that worked so well against New Mexico State last week. Frosh Bill Cook and Clarence Jones and junior college transfer Billy Buford came off the bench and presented the Tigers with a 10-point lead, 37-27, at the half. The Tigers scored 13 consecutive points during the flurry. The Bulldogs, utilizing superior quickness, made another big run in the second half. They reduced a 14-point deficit to as few as four while the Tigers were struggling to hang on. The host club's star guard, Larry Finch, got .in fout trouble early and was limited to a mere 24 minutes of play. Larry Kenon had 16 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Tigers. Finch added 14 and Ronnie Robinson, scoreless in the first half, had 13 for the night. Robinson's first two points Zone BOXSCORE IOWA LAKES NAME FG FT F Pts.

But did you know there are 35 variations in rules between the sexes in the game? Estherville High School girls' coach Les Lammers compiled the following differences: The game ball must have a leather cover. The game is played in two courts with forwards and guards remaining in their own court. There are six girls to a team, three in each court. The center division line is not a part of either court and a player touching the line or the other court has violated. The Officials' jurisdiction begins ^minutes before game time. There are some variations in officiating mechanics, particularly with regard to the handling of free throws. Scorers must record change of courts, therefore all substitutes must report their position in addition to other necessary information to the scorers. Players already in the game must report their change of court to both the scorers and an Official. Timer is responsible for warning teams and Officials that halftime intermission is ending. Pregame conference is held at least 12 minutes before game time. Home team is given the option of having the ball to start the 1st quarter or the 3rd. The game is started with a center throw by a forward from the half of the six foot center circle which is in her court. Overtime periods are started by a jump ball between any two forwards, with each girl remaining in her own court (Unless there is a technical foul involved). Six personal or irregular personal fouls or. combination thereof result in disqualification. A player may be replaced and then reenter the game during the same dead ball period. Officials are to ignore violations which have no effect upon the game, such as stepping over the boundary line by the player with the ball (1) at the center throw, or (2) when out of bounds or (3) at the free throw line, if the ball is not released and ball is' thrown legally at a later time. Ignore players touching lane lines if free throw is not in the air. A player in the guard court cannot score. Forwards will try all field goals and free throws. Only forwards in the game at the time of the foul may shoot the free throw for a personal foul against a teammate who is in the guard court. Girl may touch ball on dribble only twice (Normally two bounces). She may not fumble the ball at the end of her dribble and recover the ball. If she does touch the ball while attempting such a recovery she has violated. This assumes no intervening touching by an opponent. The ball is dead and there is no team control during the center throw. However, contact fouls during this time are personal fouls. Traveling rule is not as restrictive as in the boy's game since a girl has only two bounces. She may move her pivot foot when the ball is "on the downward go." Consequently the ball need not have left her hand when she moves her pivot foot. A girl may not touch the ball when it is in possession of an opponent unless the opponent (1) is starting her dribble; or (2) is a forward standing in the three second lane; or (3) is in the act of shooting. Such illegal touching is an irregular personal foul. A girl may not hold the ball more than three seconds before she passes, dribbles or shoots unless she inadvertantly falls to the floor. When she gets to her feet again the three second possession count starts over again. If she falls a second time during the same possession she has violated. She may also violate by not arising within a reasonable time. A girl may not pass or shoot while sitting or lying on the floor. She must have equilibrium established on both feet before passing, shooting or dribbling. A girl may not be "tied up" while on the floor even if she is in the "three second lane." Ail held balls between players from the same court result In a jump ball in that courts free throw circle. Held balls between players from different courts are Jumped in the center circle with each player remaining in her own court. AD center line and center throw violations are put in play by an opposing for­ ward out-of-bounds in her front court near the center line. If a girl with the ball falls to the floor she must make definite progress to be guilty of traveling. Girls receive a wider latitude than boys since they cannot pass or shoot the ball while on the floor. The second and fourth quarters are continuations of the previous quarter. The team in control of the ball at the end of the previous quarter plays in the ball from a nearby out of bounds spot, unless the ball has been deflected by an opponent and is free on the playing floor. If there is no team control or the exception applies the ball is jumped in the free throw circle^ between any two opponents from that court. If a foul occurred as the first i quarter or third quarter ended the next k quarter will start with the free throws. 14 Failure to list squad members ten minutes prior to game time and the failure to list starters three minutes before game can result only in a total of two team technical fouls; one for failing to list; the starters. Numbers erroneously listed in the scorer's book may be corrected at any time before the clock starts without penalty. ; After a field goal the ball is put in play by an opposing forward with a center; throw. Handing a live ball to a teammate is a .; violation. Players must remain In their own court to call time out. Violation of this rule is a technical foul. : •;' ' ''•(: Substitutes need not be beckoned on j court by an Official during charged time outs or between quarters. There is no penalty for passing the ball \ from the forward court to the guard < court. > There is no time limit for getting the" ball from the guard court to the forward court. t After the defense has been warned for , lack of action only one player need go 1 after the ball so long as she makes a bona '. fide effort to get the ball. No video or TV use during game or intermission. Movement by non-jumpers during jump ball is less restrictive.

Graebner of New York City was critical of officials and the crowd after taking the $3,000 first prize before a turnout of 2,800. He asked that one linesman be removed. "There had already been a lot of mistakes made," he explained. "When that happens you lose confidence.

The Lee Barnes' team—win- tless throughout the season (0-6) stormed back to take tournament honors by beating the Morrell's team (4-2) 58-56. The winning play was set up by Les Solmonson with less than a minute left in the game when he blocked a pass resulting in a foul against Morrell's. Dick Clark calmly sank both free throws for the winning team as time ran out. TARDY LEAGUE THURSDAY Top Hat 75'/ 2 44 ! / 2 Kent Feeds 72 48 LaRue's Bar 69 >/2 5QV2 Young-McFadden 67V2 62V 2 O.K.

Some spectators booed when the linesman was removed and Graebner called them "not a knowledgable crowd." "It's ridiculous for fans to do such things as boo when a ball is in," Graebner said. "You would think that after three years (the tournament is in its third year) the fans would learn. Hopefully, they'll be more knowledgable next year." Graebner led 5-1 in the second set, then lost the next six games. However, he got off to a 2-0 lead in the third set and never trailed.

But the pro computers apparently didn't concentrate on won-loss records as much as individual skilles in the NFL draft which concluded Wednesday, i Michigan State had 10 players drafted, as did Southern California and the Big Eight's Nebraska, one behind the 11 picked from the Big Eight's Oklahoma. But most impressive was Purdue's record of having three first-round picks and two second-round choices winding up with a total of eight taken in the first seven rounds from the third-place Big Ten-finishing Boilermakers. The biggest pro harvest from Purdue which has a long tradition of standout contributions to the play-for-pay game, included first-round picks in defensive tackle Dave Butz (St. Louis Cardinals); running back Otis Armstrong (Denver Broncos), and wide receiver Darjzp Stingley (New England Patriots). Boilermakers taken in the second round were defensive ends Gary Hrivnak (Chicago Bears) and Steve Baumgartner (New Orleans Saints).
