BASKET BALL NEWS.
Team Returns. Detail Games.
Losers at Cheyenne.
The Nebraska basket ball team re
turned yesterday after a very success
ful tour through Colorado and Into
Wyoming, and an absence of bIx days.
The mon show the effects of a long
trip and are glad to get back. They
had expected to play In Donvor again
last night, but the Highland Wheel
Club, which they defeated a week ago,
failed to furnish the $100 guarantee
and offered only 80 per cent of the gate
receipts. The Nebraska management
of course refused to accept such terms
and the team came on home.
The boys won four succcsive games
in Colorado and then lost to tho Busi
ness Colleges boys of Cheyenne Satur
day by a score of 28 to 42. But the
loss of this game can bo largely at
tributed to the worn oU condition of
the team, the high altitude, and the
slippery floor. Tho mon had lost all
their snap, did not go into the game
with their usual speed, and were un
able to rally as they had tho night be
fore at Greeley. Hero for tho first
time the high altitude seemed to effect
them, and they found themselves fre
quently out of wind. The floor was tho
slipperiest upon which any of tho play
ers ever set foot, and the cornhuskers
slid about as If it were a skating rink,
while the Cheyenne men wore vacuum
shoo.i and could stand or stop at will.
That Nobraska was certainly put at
a great disadvantage at Cheyenne is
made evident by the fact that her team
defeated Greeley High School and tho
Highland Wheel Club by large scores,
while the former of these teams has
defeated tho Cheyenne team twice, and
the latter once by decisive scores. Al
though we lost one game, the team is
to be congratulated on the results as
a whole. Nebraska made one hundred
and sixty-one points, and had one hun
dred and ten against her.
The men report a delightful trip,
and Bpeak well of tho treatment re
ceived at all places.
As the official record of the Chey
enne game was lost, It is impossible to
give a detailed account of Saturday
uight's play. The Cheyenne center was
a tower of strength to his team and did
a good share of their goal throwing.
Although he was bIx feet, four and one
half Inches tall, Captain Hewitt suc
ceeded in getting the ball the most of
the time at center, but could not keep
his opponent from throwing goals.
Hoar played guard the first half and
Benedict filled Ferguson's position at
forward. This half ended 18 to 15 In
favor of Cheyenne.
In the second- half Hoar retired and
Ferguson played his old position at
forward, with Benedict at guard. Chey
enne piled up 24 more points and Ne
braska 13. The Cornhuskers would get
the ball down to tho basket, which was
hung differently than any other, and
repeatedly throw too high for tho goal.
The game was witnessed by a crowd
of about 250,, among whom were form
er Nebraska people, who cheered the
wearers of the scarlet and cream from
time to time. The men who made the
trip were Hewitt (captain), Elliot, Fer
guson, Benedict, Hlltner, Hoar, and
Boulder, Colo., Feb. 5, 1903.
Special Correspondence to the Ne
braskan: Another scalp hangs at Ne
braska's belt Tonight at the armory
the Cornhuskers showed the Snow
trodders a pace which was far too
swift for the latter, who could with
difficulty keep in sight of Nebraska's
smoke. At Colorado Springs the floor
was slick, but here at Boulder It was
slicker, as it was already in shape for
a dance which took place immediately
after the game was finished. At half
past eight the two teams went pnto
the floor. The Nebraska team had the
advantage of height and weight, al
though handicapped by the condition
of Captain Hewitt, who was laid up
with a- bad cold. Ho, however stuck
the game out and gave a very gdod ac
count of himself. Boulder started the
game by throwing a field goal Imme
diately after the ball was knocked' off.
Then It was that Nebraska took things
in charge and commenced to "shoot"
goals from all direction?. When the
half., closed the score stood 22 to 4.
The game up to this point had bee.
as clean as the condition of the floor
would permit, Colorado being the
worst offender, more through Ignor
ance of the game or through their not
being called down in tholr daily prac
tice, than from evil intentions. But
In tho second half Colorado threw
basket-ball to the winds and started In
playing football, as this was the only
means they had of keeping tho score
down. It was tho roughest game that
wo havo struck. A very good-sized
crowd witnessed tho game, but showed
their ignorance by hissing tho umpire
on his rulings. Tho Boulder man
agement said thev would clear 125
above all expenses, Nebraska's share
oeing $75 and expenses. Tho line-up:
Nebraska. Pos. Goals. Fouls.

Elliot F 1 8
Ferguson F 4

8coro 27 to 11.
At Greeley tho Cornhuskers once
more came out with flying colors,
though victory hovered at first over
the G. H. S. banner as if about to
alight upon it. But as she almost
touched it, she soemingly for the first
time beheld the scarlet and cream.
Her wings again beat the air as she
sailed over the O. H. S. banner and
alighted once more upon her old rest
ing plac. At no other time on th
trip has the Nebraska team received
such a scare as tonight. All of the
Information obtainable led to the be
lief that G. H. S. was easy. But they
are not, as the score will show. The
game opened fast and furious. G. H.
S. threw a goal, and tho crowd went
wild. A foul on G. H. S. gave Nebras
ka one point, and she got one more
a minute later for the same reason.
G. H. S. took a brace, and when the
half closed was In the lead by a score
of 9 to 7. Although the ball was at
the Nebraska goal the greater share
of the time, It Just would not go
through the basket. But the second
half saw a change. Nebraska realised
what she was up against and played
accordingly. The game was as clean
as could be in one so hotly contested.
Nebraska soon took the lead, but was
tied once In this half. Then the
"shooting" of goals was In order, and
thoy settled down to business. Though
the game was marked by considerable
fouling, the best of spirit provailed
among the players and spectators. The
game was played in the armory and
the floor was already prepared for
dancing, so it was rather slick. The
floor above was supported by three
steel trusses which hung down to
within about eight feet of the floor.
This was an obstacle which Nebraska
hung upon more than once. There
were several old Nebraska people
present, and they cheereu on the war
riors with all their might. Among
others was Gibson, of last year's scrub
football team. The crowd was very
good-natured and cheered lustily when
Nebraska scored, but went wild when
Greeley High School made Its points.
The referee was one of the best offi
cials we have met on the trip. Tho
line-up and record:
Nebraska. Pos. Goals. Fouls.
Score 25 to 15.
