Cbe Week 's Summary
Basket Ball Review.
Now that the banket ln 1 1 Reason ifl
over, it In of Interest to review the
career of the team of" "03 In the fall
the outlook was far from flattering.
Not a single member of last year's
team, with the exception of Captain
Hewitt, had returned, and he was only
a substitute Hut foi Innately neatly
all the hccoih! team men were hack and
turned out to make the team Hesldea,
an unusual amount of new material
Hhowrd up and competition was stroiiR
from the Htart. Hut to offset these ad
vantages, Dr. Clapp. who had been
counted upon to coach the team, was
detained on account of Illness and was
unable to reach the University until
about the middle of October. During
this time the basket ball class had de
veloped as best It could in the ab
sence of a coach.
Dr. Clapp assumed charge of the
basket ball men as soon as possible
aftor his arrival and began to train
the men in the science of the game.
His presence gave a new stimulus to
the work, and progress began In earn
est. The attendance Increased, and
every man with any basket ball ability
appeared on the floor three times a
week for practice. The men were all
given a try-out and the personnel of
the team gradually became apparent.
The class was so large that the. new
chapel had to be fitted up with fixture.-!
and UBcd by the third and fourth
With great diflUult the coach and
captain finally picked the team, and the
first game of the season took phu e
on December 18, when the 'vaisity won
from the city Y. M. C. A by a score
of 25 to 18. Henedict, who had been
out only after the close of the football
season, was not In this game Just
a month later Nebraska went' clown In
defeat at the hands of the Bwlft and
aggrepshe Haskell Indians, to the tune
of 35 to 18. In this game Benedict
played one half.
During vacation the first team lost to
the city Y. M. C. A. on their floor by a
score of 35 to 21. Saturday night of
the next week the wearers of the scar
let and cream retrieved themselves by
taking Kansas into camp by a score of
25 to 18.
Immediately after vacation the team
left for a western tour through Colo
rado and into Wyoming. Seven men
made the trip, Benedict, Hlltner. Hoar,
Ferguson, Newton, Elliot and Hewitt.
While away they won four games out
of five, defeating Denver University
44 to 29, Colorado College 37 to 11.
Colorado University 27 to 12. Greeley
25 to 15, and lost to Cheyenne 42 to 28.
This was one of the most successful
trips over made by a basket ball team.
One hundred and nine points were
made against Nebraska and 1G1 for her,
leaving a good large majority of fifty
two. Sime their return three games have
been played. On February 20 the Corn
huskers established their supremacy
over the Lincoln Y. M. C. A. by the
decisive score of 33 to 20. Then, on
March 8th, came the trip to Minnesota.
This tour resulted In two decisive de
feats at the hands of the Agricultural
School and the University of Minne
sota, by, scores of 14 to 4 and 41 to 14.
The former defeat may be attributed
largely to the rough treatment received
at the hands of the "Aggies" and par
tial work at the hands of the officials.
In the latter game the Nebraskans
made a good showing against the
"Champion Northmen," and put up
about twice as good a score as laBt
year. This trip cloned the season.
On a whole, the season may be con
sidered a successful one. Nebraska
made 304 points and had 290 made
against her. giving a balance of 14 In
her favor. This Is a very good record
for twelve games, considering that we
met Minnesota, Haskell, Kansas and
Colorado, and had to develop an en
tirely new team. The games and

wards; Bernard Newton, substitute.
It would be almost an injustice to say
nothing of the second team. It has
been an unusually strong one and this
doubtless accounts somewhat for the
success of the first team. The second
five defeated the Lincoln High School
by scores of 2(5 to 19 and 18 to 7, and
lost to the second Y. M. C. A. by Bcores
of 10 to 18 and 15 to 12. This team
made 72 points, and 59 were made
