THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
BY BILL MUNDELL
Intramural Sports Columnist

there were some who were still

No actual upsets were re
corded In the books. That Is, no
underdogs actually won, but
they sure rave the favorites a
whirl of a time.
The closest game coming to an
upset was the big game of the
evening. Phi Kappa Psi met Sigma
Alpha Epsilon before over 150
spectators that, jammed court II

It was close all right, close to

the game and after the Sig Alphs I
caught up before romping to a

The rambling 'hi Psi's gave a
fancy exhibition of basketball
that ran the SAE's ragged in the
iirsfnine minutes of play. At that
point the Phi Psi machine owned
a 16-5 lead. They must have made
the Sig Alphs made because from
that point on, It was 1 11 SAE.
Behind the brilliance of Don
McArthur, Bill Wenke and Ron
Roeder, Sigma Alpha Epsilon
struck and the echo was heard
all over the campus.
Slapping the Phi -Psi's down
with only Larry Andersen's goal,
the Sig Alphs roared by a 21-18
halftime margin. Wenke took the
spotlight in the second period
with three swishers from the
corners that fcroke the Phi Psi

shots and was even on the scor
ing end of a blazing fast-break
in one instance.
All told, McArthur blazed the
nets for a total of 22 points for
top honors in the contest. He
was ably supported by -Wenke
.and Roeder who got ten apiece.
Jerry Anderson led the Phi
.Psi's with eight counters fol
lowed by Bob Bachman with
The result of the game brought
forth the cry, "Who will stop the
Sig Alphs?" and it's a good ques
tion. The SAE's are currently
favored to take it all in the next
four days of action.
Alpha Tau Omega, Sigma Phi
Epsilon and Delta Tau Delta re
mained in the race with quarter
final victories with all but the
Taus getting more than their share
The ATO's, man-handling
Sigma Chi during the initial
three quarters, led going into
the final ten minutes, 33-16, and
breezed on to win, 38-24. The
Sigs were hopelessly outclassed
throughout the game.
Bernie Scheer topped the Tau
attack with 11 counters with Al
Blessing contributing another
nine. Ted Connor led the Sig
scoring with similar nine points.
Sigma Phi Epsilon was sup
posed to name their own score
against Sigma Nu, but the Sig

Hoilie Lepley, University

ends Saturday night.
"Swimmers on the Iowa State
and Oklahoma team have broken
every existing record during the
dual meet season," Lepley points
out. "The 440-yard record has
been lowered by 15 seconds, the
relays by seven and eight seconds

won the 60 and 100-yard free

barged right back and knotted
the score to force the game Into

Sig Nu Don Brym had the fi
nal outcome of the contest in his
hands. With the regulation game
finished and the 'ig Eps one point
on top, Brym toed the free-throw
line with two tosses coming to
him. A different outcome was the
result of any combination of his

Ray Vlasin potted a fielder with
three seconds remaining in the
regular contest to give the Aggies
a 29-29 tie. In the first three
minute overtime Al Cramer of the
SAE's and Denzll Cleg matched

Both teams refused numerous
free throws in the four sudden

The ATO Bees made the Sigs
look silly in the first quarter,
running to a 14-2 margin at the
intermission. It wasn't enough to
win, however, and it served only
to give the Sigs a little wisdom.
Sigma Chi learned its lesson well
and proceeded to demonstrate by
rallying to an 18-18 halftime
mark, catching their breath in a
