K-State Surges To Second;
' I other Huskers On Way
By BOB WIRZ
Sports Staff Writer
Jack Parr's 27 points and 20 by
Eddie Wallace were the difference
last night as the Kansas State
Wildcats trounced Nebraska 89-53
in a Big Seven basketball en
counter at Manhattan, Kansas.
Parr the 6'9" junior, hit nine
field goals the second half to go
with his nine first half points. Most
of his shots were hooks from
around the keyhole.
Wallace did a tremendous job of
ball stealing for Coach Tex Win

came from layups after he and
Don Matuszak had stolen the ball.
The Huskers, suffering from a
16 day rest, stayed even with
Kansas State for only the first
few minutes of play. Then the
K-Staters cut loose with Wallace,
Roy DeWitz, and Bob Boozer doing

Leading Nebraska the first half
were Gary Reimers and Rex Ek
wall each with eight points. Lyle
Nannen, the Syracuse junior, was
close behind with six.
The halftime score read 41-30
with the winners in command.
In the second half the Huskers
opened scoring with a pair of
charity tosses by Ekwall. This
narrowed the margin to nine points
and it looked like the 10,000 fans
might be in for a thrilling second
half. However, the Cats paced by
Parr hit six straight points and
there was no stopping them thereafter.

Bush tried several combinations
in a desperate attempt to halt the
scoring but nothing seemed to
halt the sizzling opponents.
