On Norman Court
Sooners Respect Cornhuskers
If They Are 20 Points Behind
Consider Last Year
NORMAN, Okla., Feb. 10 Oklahoma's fast-moving basketball
team Is regarding Its next test, the clat;h with Coach A. J. Lewandow
Bkl's Nebraska Cornhuskers here February 16, with something of a
And no wonder. In Norman, Lewandowski's Nebraskans are
known as the team that can't play worth a darn until its gets 20
Last year here the big boys in Scarlet put on the finest and
gamest last-half rally ever produced here in the memory of the eldest
fan to defeat an astonished Oklahoma team that led by 22 points at
one point of the last half.
30 10 Defeat.
Coach Bruce Drake's Sooners looked perfect the first 30 min
utes of the one-sided contest. They led 28 to 9 at one point in the
first half. And their savagery didn't end there. They came out for
the second half like an enraged Tennessee colonel looking for the
i guy who slurred his family, and drove the score up to 36-14 with five
minutes of the last half gone.
With only ten minutes left to play Oklahoma still led by 20 points,
37-17, and the crowd began to yawn and look around for its wraps.
Suddenly the big Nebraska team began to hit. Cold as an ice
locker pork chop in the first half, the Northerners made a funnel
out of the ring when they got going.
Aggressive Defense Works.
Also, Lewandowski ordered his men to pick the Sonners up all
over the court. This was smart strategy. It was the most aggressive
defense Oklahoma fans had ever seen. The Nebraskans would make
a goal, Oklahoma would throw the ball in, and the fighting Corn
huskers would either intercept the pass or take the ball away from
some Sooner and score again.
A couple of Nebraska substitutes, Young and Goetz, hit from all
over the floor in the final moments and the petrified Sooner spectators
sat stunned after the final gun exploded just two seconds after Young
had dunked a running one-hander from long range to give Nebraska
the victory 43-42. Oklahoma couldn't believe it had lost.
Lewandowski will bring to Norman practically the same hustling
squad that was in on that celebrated last-half kill, Fitzgibbon, Thomp
son, Livingston, Held and the unerring climax marksmen, Young and
