Stop Home Winning Streak
BY BILL MUNDELL
Nebraska's home court hasket
hall record of all victories and
no .defeats hangs "by a blender
thread today. The nation's num
ber five team, namely the Wild
cats from Kansas State, invade
the Husker lair tonight and are
favored to keep their conference
Tecord unblemished. The Wild
cats have a 4-0 league Tecord to
date, good enough lor first place.
From all appearances, at looks
like no contest. It appears to
be like any other .conference
game "when the lirst place team
meets the last .lace team. The
Buskers took over that last place
position Friday night in Ames
when the Iowa State Cyclones
took -out their spite .on the Scar
let and withered the -visitors by
The Monday meeting will he
the second game between the two
schools this season. The Cats
walloped the Cornhuskers earlier
in the Kansas City tournament.
There is no Teason why they
should not .do it again.
No Teason, xcept for that in
significant fact that the Husk
ers will be playing on their home
It's true that the Huskers have
not met any world beaters on
the Coliseum maples this season,
"but Tegardless cf that, it is
rough on any team to meet the
Huskers at home. In fact, only
one team has consistently won
their share of games on the Ne
Upsets Still Haunt IM Play;
Kappa Sigs, SAE's, Taus Fall
The wave of upsets which be
gan earlier this week continues
to cloud in the intramural basket
nail scene as three more clubs
met unexpected defeats during
Wednesday and Thursday night's
Friday and Saturday's card will
hrlng to a. close the bushiest week

Ron. A total of 63 games will have
been played "by Saturday eve
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, ranked
eighth All-University, found its
league title hopes almost com
pletely shattered Thursday eve
ning when it fell to an inspired
Beta Sigma Psi team, 30-28. The
Beta Sigs thus finished the demo
lition work the ATO's had begun
earlier Mb the week, the Taus
having iipsdt the Sig Alphs by a
.36-33 count on Monday.
Virg Woamsat set off the fuse
that blew the :Sig Alph's playoff
hopes sky high with .a tie-brejak-ing
basket in the last ten seconds
of play. Woamsat's shot, a des
peration over-the-head .one
hander from deep in the corner,
ripped through the meshes to
climax a Beta 'Sig rally which
had brought the score to 28-28
tie. Dannehl and Bauer sparked
the last-half Beta Sig bid and
finished with 10 and 7 points,
respectively, Brown and Lea;h
were tops for the luckless Sig
Alphs with 6 points each.
Lyle Altman was a thorn in
the ATO's side all evening as he
repeatedly drove in for easy lay
ups. When the Tau defense would
tighten to stop Altaian's on
slaught, Stoup and Bunten would
hit from the side with deadly
one-handers. Altman was tops
lor the victorious Nu's with 11
points. Stoup and Bunten aided
the Sig Nu cause with B and 7
points, respectively. Bosley's long
one-handers was the only . of
fensive threat the ATO's could
muster, and his 12 points were
far from enough.
Sigma Chi rolled to an impres
sive 41-18 win over a befuddled
Kappa Sigma team in the third
major upet of the evening. 31
thus .ended a very disastrous
week for the Kappa igs, they
having been trounced earlier in
the week by a -scrappy Delta I
2,'au Delta .crew, .38-21. g
The Sig Chi attack was led by
Thomas and Curtiss who hit for
16 and 7 points, respectively. The
Win is the second of the week for
the fast- improving Sig Chl'a,

But to pull this mpset .of up
sets, the Cornhuskers will have
to rely upon more than the
home-court jinx. 'They are faced
with the responsibility .of stop

Barrett, Stone, Gibson, Iverson,
Barrett Hurt NU
It was Ernie Barrett that Trilled
the Cornhuskers in the KC tour
ney in December. It was Lew
Hitch that led the Wildcat steam
roller over powerful ILong Island
university last Wednesday. It
was Jack Stone who powered
the K-Stater .over the Kansas
Jayhawks. The list like this goes
on and on. Any one man .on the
Cat squad will break your hack
with points if you strengthen
your defense on another man.
Coach Harry Good will rely
upon the scoring and floor play
of his two mainstays, Bob Pierce
and Jim Buchanan.
Pierce again was the hig
point-getter for Nebraska in then
loss to Iowa State Friday night.
Bi- Bob connected lor six field
goals and 6"7 free tosses for 18
Bob was the only consistent
hope for the Huskers, however,
as the Cyclones held the rest
of the Scarlet to only minor
trouble. Buchanan manaeed onlv
nine points, far below his game
Joe Good hit for Sour fielders
tops for -the losers with seven
and six pointe, Tespectively.
Delta Tau Delta rolled to a
52-29 victory over a stubborn
but outmanned Alpha vGamma
Rho crew. The contest was never
in doubt as the oft-beaten AGR's
found themselves 11 points be
hind in the first six minutes of
play. With Neff and Paynich hit
ting consistently on short jump
Bhots, the Delt attack never let
up. Neff finished with 11, Pay
nich with 14. Frost and Monson
were tops lor the losers with
seven points each.
Approach Scoring Mark
Phi Kappa Psi went up against
a weak Theta 3Ci aggregation and
before the contest was far along
it was apparent that the Phi Psi
team had a chance of breaking
m the intramural rscorlng" Tecord
of 82 points. However, the at
tempt fell 3 points as the final
Jerry Anderson led the Phi Psi
attack with .twenty-one points,
followed by Larry Anderson with
34 and Bobby Reynolds -with 12.
Bob Bale was high for the los
ing Theta Xi's with 6 markers.
The seventh-ranking Fratern
ity "A" team, Brown Palace
picked up its fourth win in five
starts at the expense of a fast
fading Beta Theta Pi team, 42-28.
The only blotch on the Palacer's
record is an early season loss to
the powerful Phi Psi's.
'Williams Leads Palacers
"Mel Williams was tops for the
victorious Palacers with 14
points. B. Stake added ten to the
winner's total Penold and Tapp
led the vain bid of the Betas
with 10 and 8 points, respectively.
Nebraska Coop won a cloae de
cision over Dorm B & C in a

by Jim KosIm.1
A touring .group of Corn -
husker athletic teams again ran
into serious trouble up Boulder.
CoioM way ms the University 'Of
Colorado swimming, wrestling,
and gymnastics teams pasted the
Huskers very (decisively..
Only 'in wrestling did the Ne
braskans put up a good fight
before losing 15-11. Harold Gil
liland in the" 130 lb. .division,
Dave Mackie in the 167 lb. class,
and Herb Reese, in the heavy
weight division were the .only
Huskers to post wins. Big Sev
en Champ Reese pinned Colo
rado's Bob Schalk for his third
pin in three matches.
Coach Jake Geier's Husker
gymnastics team fell before the
Buffs, 52-44, Friday. It was a
battle all the way between Col
orado's ace performer, Bill
Haase, and Nebraska's Al Dun
avan. Haase copped three first
places to roll .up 26 points.
Dunavan scored 20.
Although two Husker swim
mers set pool and meet records
and Nebraska's Eddie Craren
put on a sensational show to win
the .diving title, Nebraska lost
to Colorado's mermen, 47-37, in
a dual swim meet .at Boulder.
