Area girls' high school basketball- T-C beats Vikettes in triple overtime NEOLA - Tri-Center showed the rest of southwest Iowa that their girls' basket- ball program is far from dead when they beat AvoHa-Shelby-Tennant 61-56 Tues- day in a Western Iowa Conference game. It was a thrilling contest, too, because it took the Trojanettes three overtimes before they could pull out the five-point victory over one of the better teams in the state this winter. "It was a battle the entire game," said- Tri-Center Coach Gary White. "We were very fortunate - no doubt about it. The best thing for us was that even though we had several mistakes, 1 felt we pulled together as a team the entire game." AvoHa-Shelby-Tennant probably felt FLOOR BATTLE- AvoHa-Shelby-Tennant forward Andrea Jacobsen grabs the ball away from Trt-Center snakebitten because they had numerous opportunites to win the contest, both in regulation and the first two overtimes. The Vikettes got the last shot in each of those situations but couldn't convert. "We got the shots but it was just as though the basket had cellophane on it," said A-S-T Coach Frank Nelsen. "When it was tied, it was going in the freezer. Tri- Center knew it, too, but how many times would we miss three chances to win a game like this? It was a very good learning expe- rience and we have to build on it. I'll bet Treynor is smiling." The Vikettes took a 10-3 lead early in the game but Tri-Center fought back to take a 30-29 hafltime lead. The two teams IS A SURPRISE IN STORE? Like the football team last fall, the HCHS boys' basketball team isn't expected to be the conference powerhouse. But the football team surprised with their one-sided romp through the league and the basketball battled back-and-forth and the score was knotted at 54-54 with 2-1/2 minutes to play. A-S-T held for the last shot but the driving layup was no good to force the first overtime. Tri-Center controlled the tip in the ini- tial extra period but missed on their first try. A-S-T again stalled for the final shot but another driving layup failed, forcing a second overtime. This time it was the Vikettes control- ling the tip and they stalled for one shot. T- C guard Lisa Huebner forced a jump ball with four seconds remaining to thwart A- S-T's chance. To make matters worse for the Vikettes, Sarah Brich was fouled with three seconds remaining but she missed the free throw attempt and a third extra period was necessary. The Trojanettcs took a quick lead in that three-minute period when Katie Lead- era hit a shot and was fouled. She converted to give T-C a 57-54 lead and they wouldn't look back again. Leaders finished the game with 25 points while Angle Corrin added 23, in- cluding four 3-point buckets. The visiting Vikettes got 25 points from Laura Allen and that included seven 3-point shots. On defense, T-C's Tonya Matthews and Huebner had five rebounds each. For AvoHa-S-T, Kaylee Hundt had five re- bounds and Kellie Maassen four steals. Brandi Jorgensen also had nine offensive rebounds.

Area boys' prep basketball - I-K-M stuns foe with easy victory DUNLAP - Irwin-Kirkman-Manilla opened their boys' basketball campaign with a surprising 96-60 victory over Dun- lap-Dow City-Arion Tuesday. The one- sided win wasn't expected, according to I- K-M Coach Bill Miller. "I was real surprised at how badly we beat them," he said. "I still think Dunlap is going to be a good team. They've got two all-conference players back. We played real well. Our shooting percentage was amazing. Defensively, we stopped them pret .ty well." The Hawks shot 62% from the field and that included an 8 of 12 performance from the 3-point line. Six Hawks were in double figures with AI Schwarte leading with 18. Dean Gross added 17, Scott Kuhl 16, Lynn Barry 14 and both Shane Wiegel and Paul Muhlbauer scored 11. I-K-M opened a 28-15 lead after one quarter and were up 50-28 by halftime. Dunlap-Dow City-Axion was never able to come back with John Heller's 12 points leading the offense. Barry added 14 rebounds and three steals for the Hawks. Kuhl had six assists and seven rebounds while Muhlbauer had six rebounds and Schwarte seven. The Hawks have a busy weekend as they travel to East Monona (Moorhead) on Friday and Carroll Saturday.

Depth paid off for the Trojans as they had nine players score at least six points. Tri-Center used a stiff defense in the opening quarter to post a 23-6 advantage. By halftime, there was little drama left as they were up 46-18. Coach Carl Cochran commented,"Our depth just wore them down and our defense dictated the game right from the start. Everybody played well. Our people that came off the bench contributed both offen- sively and defensively." Bill Jennings led the Tri-Center offense with 17 points but not far behind were Jim Dermody with 16, Brian Lurid 12, Ray Wellman 12 and Rob Larsen 11. Larsen also had nine assists and five steals while ::: :$:: :::$ :::::: ::::::::::: ::: ::: :':.::::::: ::::::; :,:: ::: :: :. ::::: ::: ::::: ::k%::;::':,:::: ::::: i!i!i !!`:?.`...i.`8Iiiii!!iii!ii:!ii!i!iiiiiIiiii!::!!i:i!iiiiii!ii:iiii;:::!ii!: Prep Basketball Area scores I GIRLS BASKETBALL Games Played Monday, Dec. 4 Anita 48, Cumberland-Massena 47 Exira 99, Bridgewater-Fontanelle 92 Orient-Macksburg 83, Walnut 46 Games Played Tuesday, Dec. 5 Ar-We-Va (Westside) 66, Woodbine 39 Charter Oak-Ute 92, Schleswig 62 CB Lewis Genial 75, Glenwood 40 Dunlap-DC-A 41, I-K-Manilla 39 (or) East Monona (Moorhead) 49, Manning 48 Elk Horn-Kimballton 96, Anita 58 Griswold 56, Missouri Valley 48 Odent-Macksburg 72, Exira 56 Shenandoah 46, Clarinda 38 Treynor 81, Oakland 54 Tri-Center 61, AvoHa-S-T 56 (3 or) Underwood 63, West Harrison 54 Winterset 61, Creston 27 BOYS BASKETBALL Games Played Monday, Dec. 4 Bridgewater-Fontanelle 53, Exira 42 Cumberland-Massena 6"/, Anita 44 Orient-Macksburg 58, Walnut 50 Games Played Tuesday, Dec. 5 Ar-We-Va (Westsdie) 53, Woodbine 46 Charter Oak-Ute 72, Schleswig 52 Clarinda 79, Shenandoah 64 CB St. Albert 76, Glenwood 46 Griswold 69, Missouri Valley 52 Irwin-Kirk.-Manilla 96, Dunlap-DC-A 60 Manning 103, East Monona (Moorhead) 48 Maryville, MO 66, Red Oak 47 Treynor 65, Oakland 43 Tri-Center 98, AvoHa-Shelby-Tennant 55 West Harrison 48, Underwood 45 Eight seniors are gone from 19-2 team - Cyclones hope to. surprise H 8 again Although the Cyclones have won five of the last seven Hawkeye Eight boys' basketball crowns, Coach Dave Lansing isn't convinced that his team is the favorite this year. But he is more optimistic than he was just a few weeks ago. "Before we played Creston in the con- ferencejamboree, I really thought that they might go undefeated this year," said Lan- sing. "I can see they aren't unbeatable now but they are still going to be very good. It has to be Creston and then everyone else playing for second." The Panthers return all but one player from their 1988-89 roster. They went 16-6 last season and finished seconu m the league. Meanwhile, the Cyclones return two key players from a team that went 19- 2 and finished one win from the state tournament. The Cyclone basketball team is in a sinfilar situation to the football team as the rest of the league is hoping to catch up with them. But as Lansing noted, "In basketball you only have to find five players to put on the floor. In football you have 22 positions to fill." The Cyclones were hit hard by gradu- ation. Eight seniors are gone, including one of the best players in school history, Shane Murphy, now at Drake University. Murphy averaged 22.6 points and 11.7 rebounds. Also gone are seven others that combined for 38.5 points per game. To add !o the rebuilding, the Cyclones did not play in summer leagues for the first time since Lansing took over the program. "I can see the difference, too," said Lansing. "I didn't know what to expect when practice started. This group may not be "as dedicated in the off-season but they sure play hard, even in practices." Four lettermen return from last year's squad but only two are assured starting berths when the season opens tonight (Friday) at CB Lewis Central. Those two will make for a good foundation to this year's squad though. Scott Arkfeld, a 6'4" senior, is slated to take over the role occupied by Murphy. Arkfeld averaged 7 points as a junior but Coach Lansing commented, "Scott didn't shoot much last year. I expect that will change quite a bit. He has a good shot and he moves well." The other sure starter is 6'3" senior Troy Schulte who scored 24 points in just two quarters against Creston last week. Schulte is one of the best all-around play- ers on the squad as he is capable of playing inside or outside. He'll play one of the forward spots but could also move into the post. Schulte averaged 6.7 points as the top reserve last season. Another letterwinner will get a starting berth as well, but he wasn't with the Cy- clones a year ago. Ryan Lowe, a letterman in Colby, Kansas, as a junior, takes over at point guard. Jeff Sonderman, a 6'3" senior letter- man, will probably get the early start m center. He averaged 7.9 points for the jun- ior varsity squad last season. His backups include Arkfeld, Schulte, 6'1" junior Steve Wegner and 6'3" sophomore Kiron An- dersen. In addition to Lowe, there are several candidates for starting spots at guard. Possibilities include 5'9" .senior letterman Dale Schmitz, 6'1" junior Troy Reimcr and a pair of talented sophomores - 5' 10" Jason Caimey and 5' 11" Chris Hogzctt. "Our outside shooting should be better this year," id Lansing. "We've got good team quickness. We are really strong at the wing positions so we may have to try something different to get those people in the game." The only losses a year ago were to CB Lewis Central during the regtdar season and West Des Moines Valley in a sub-slate championship game.
