Big 7 Round-Up .
Missouri Tigers,
Rank As Earlv
As the 1954-55 basketball season
comes to its start, some surprises
may be in store for the cage fans.
The Big Seven may be in for some
revising this campaign.
In the past, either Kansas or
Kansas State has held the upper
hand, but this year may find a
strong crew of Missouri Tigers
making a bid for conference hon
ors. Returning to the Missouri
school is the same line-up that
caused much trouble for some
schools last year.
Included in the group is big Bob
Reiter, 6-8 pivot man, who carried
a 19.6 average last year to pace a
team with a so-so mark of 11-10
and a third place mark in the con
ference. Other starters returning
are Norm Stewart, junior guard,
Med Park, Gary Filbert, and Lloyd
Elmore. This was the same start-

Not since Bob Stauffer and Bud
HeinneYnan stormed the courts for
Sparky Stalcups crew have the
Tigers been in contention.
Like Missouri, Colorado also has
their starting five back. The Buffs
finished in a tie with the Kansans
last year, and went on to the N.G
a.a. piay-ons where they were
dumped by Bradley. It was on this
basis that the Big Seven changed
the rule from the flip of the coin
on a tie to their present policy.
The five veterans, four seniors and
one sophomore make up the CU
starting five. At forwards will be

Halderson led the Buffs in scoring
last year with a 16.7 mark. This
was good enough to lead the Big
Seven in conference play.
Kansas State will also attempt a
return to basketball supremecy In
the league with seven men re
turning to coach Tex Winter. Six
returnees from last years five that
finished with an 11-10 mark and
fourth in the conference are Ken
Poore, J. R. Snyder, Dick Stone,
Jim Smith, Jerry Jung, Roger Craf
and Gene Wilson, who was spark
for the Wildcats in the 1951-52 sea

graduation was Jesse Prisock and
Gene Stauffer. Winter, with much
optimism in his voice, says five
things that will be improved over
the preceding aggregation. More
speed, better ball handling, im
proved playmaking ability, better
defensive potential, and as good or
better outside shooting as last sea
Kansas, starting its 38th year
under the leadership of Dr. For
est C. (Phog) Allen, may find the
road hard with the loss of four of
its five btarters. Gone are Al Kel-

and Bill Heitholt. Only returning
regular is Dallas Dobbs. Other re
turning veterans include Harold
McElroy, Cris Divitch and Larry
Davenport, plus two fine looking
sophomores, Gene Elstun and Lew
Nebraska, with Jerrv Bush at the
helm, has five returning lettermen,
including three starters. Stan Matz

Gone from the Husker quintet of
last year is Bill Johnson and Don

Oklahoma and Iowa State will be
for some rough times this year.

Huskers No Pushover
Especially As Underdogs
Sports Editor
Some fans seem to chuckle at the statement, "Nebraska University
is going to play the Blue Devils from Duke in the Orange-Bowl." They
seem to think the Huskers will be beaten so badly the tie-up between
the Big Seven and the Atlantic Coast Conference could be terminated.
Fourteenth Nationally
The Duke team is ranked fourteenth in the final AP standings just
released. The Huskers were never ranked higher than twentieth in
fact they even had to share that perch with two other elevens. By all
rights and records, Duke will be favored when they enter the New
Year's Day classic in Miami.
Now is the time to point out that the Huskers
were made underdogs in a majority of their con
tests this year, yet managed to come up with the
second best season since Coach Bill Glassford took
over the job at Nebraska. If we took a careful
analysis of the defeats that the Huskers incurred,
it would read like this.
Minnesota-The Gophers were giant killers this
year having one of their best years. Bob McNam
mara was named to many AU-American squads for
his excellent showing throughout the year. It's no
disgrace to lose to a team as powerful as Minne
sota. Kansas State This was a rough contest to lose.
The Huskers did not play their best ball of the year by far,
lost this tilt in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter.
Pittsburgh The Panthers were big. The loss could have been
attributed to a letdown after the win over KU or it could have been
that the Huskers were looking forward to the OU tilt the next week.
Anyway we lost, 21-7.
Oklahoma-Perfection. One word is enough to describe the Oakies
that warm Saturday afternoon down at Norman. Coach Bud Wilkinson
had said himself that the game against NU was his team's best show
ing of the season. A few costly errors in the second quarter turned
the tide against the Nebraskans. Up to this point midway in the
BACKS FOR LARGE LOSSES, but after that point, the overwhelming
score tells the story.
There are the four losses.
The Huskers won't forget what they said after the Oklahoma
win. They will make up for that defeat in the Orange Bowl. The
best tonic for a person sick over the Huskers going to Orange Bowl
is an NU win unexpected by many, but not thought impossible by

Every year at about this time,
after a new intramural football
champion has been crowned and
the season has been completed, an
all University intramural football
team is chosen. The time for the
selection of the team has arrived.
This year, as in past years, there
will undoubtedly be many differ
ing opinions of which athletes are
qualified to be placed on the team.
In order to be as fair as possible,
this reporter will select the imag
inary team from all-opponent
teams chosen by each individual
football manager.
All team managers should send
a list of the all opponent team,
chosen by his team to The Nebras
kan not later than 5:00 p.m. Fri
day. In addition to this, recom
mendations for members from the
manager's own team should be in
cluded. Along with the All University
team, to be announced next week,
will be the final standings of the
football teams.
