In a contest that saw 57 fouls
called, the Nebraska Cornhuskers
won their first conference game
of the year, downing the Missouri
Tigers 83-77 last night at the Col
iseum. The victory enabled the
Huskers to avenge an earlier re
versal at the hands of the invad
ing Tigers, when MU downed Ne
braska 71-66 at the Big 7 pre
season tourney at Kansas City.
Nebraska quickly took the lead
and went ahead 11-0 before Mis
souri could break the ice. Chuck
Smith scored seven of the points
in this early flurry. The Tigers
quickly widdled the margin and
with 11:36 left in the half, they
trailed NU by a narrow 16-15.
At this point, both quintets
traded scores, and with 5:48 left,
the Tigers took the lead for the
first time, 35-34. The Huskers came
back with Smith hitting a pair of
free shots, but MU once again
took the edge 39-38 on a fielder by
Bill Ross. Rex Ekwall then hit a
two-pointer, but Norm Stewart put
th Bengals back in the lead on
a pair of charity shots. Stewart
followed with a jump shot to give
the Missouri ang their biggest mar
gin of the night 43-40. The Huskers
fought back with Jim Arwood hit
ting a pair of gift shots and Jim
Thorn tied the contest up at 43-43
with a one-pointer. Ross then hit
a pair of free throws and Thorn
matched this effort to bring the
halftime score to an even 45-all
At the outset of the second half,
both quintets matched goals, Bon
Smidt hitting for Nebraska, and
Chuck Denny for MU before the
Huskers went out in front to stay,
51-49. From this point the Huskers
ran the margin to a 66-59 count be
fore Stewart and Denny tallied to
cut the lead to 66-63. With Lionel
Smith and Stewart supplying the
punch, the Tigers crept to with a
two-point spread 70-68, before
Smith, Arwood, and Norm Coufal
took the Cornhuskers back to a
comfortable 78-70 cushion.
Then with 4:54 left, the Husk
ers went into a freeze and withf
Arwood and Reimers supplying the
final scoring, the Huskers rode
to their first conference victory of
the season and brought the sea
sonal mark to 4-8. For the Tigers,
it was their second straight set
back in league play. They bowed
to the Colorado Buffs, the next
Cirtny linrohi Journal
foe for NU Saturday night, 82-79
last Saturday at Boulder.
Don Smidt, young sophomore
forward, led the NU scoring, dump
ing in 22 points before fouling
out. Smith foDowed in the scoring
with 16 points. Ekwall and Coufal
each hit 10 for the Huskers cause.
Norm Stewart, veteran Tiger
guard, led the Bengal attack with
25 points. Ross fedded 15 and Smith
13. Roger Engellhoff and Denny
each tallied 10.
From the field the Huskers hit
a solid 43 per cent of their shots,
dropping in 21 out of 49 shots.
Their amazing percentage came
at the free throw line, hitting 41
out of 55 shots for a 75 per cent
total. Missouri, on the other hand,
took almost twice as many shots,
hitting 22 out of 79. They had 33
out of 46 from the gift stripe.
The Huskers success seemed to
lie in the ability of coach Jerry
Bush to go to his bench. With Ek
wall, Smith, Smidt and Coufal foul
ing out, Bush bad to rely on little
Gary Reimers, Arwood, Thorn,
and Kubacki, all sophomores in
the closing minutes. In all, 10 men
broke into the NU line-up with nine
scoring. Only Dudley Doebele fail
ed to register in the scoring col
umn. But be teamed up with the
four sophomores in the closing min
utes to sew up the contest and
sent NU on the victory trail once
again. This could very will be a
carbon copy of the previous sea
son, when the Huskers opened lea
gue play with a losing record, and
then coming on strong to win over
five conference foes at home, los
ing only to these same Tigers.

its first meet of the year Saturday
when Kansas defeated them 50 to
34. This gives the team ti one win,
one loss, one tie record for the
The meet was much closer than
the score indicated as Nebraska's
first three men led on the final
relay only to lose out on the last
kg. Had Nebraska won this event
the final score would have read
4341 with Kansas still on top.
Although Nebraska placed first
in only three of the ten events a
strong number of second and third
places kept the Huskers scrapping.
The 60-yard free style was the
afternoons best event with tee first
three men not over six inches
apart at the finish line.
Lepley said after the defeat that
chances were good that bis swim
mers might defeat the Kansans
when they visit the Nebraska pool
on February 25. Be also stated that
if Nebraska had one more sprinter
they would have two good relay
teams. There are several good
sprinters on campus not out for
