The Daily Nebroslcon
Cansas State Tramp
oozer, Elcwall Turn
By GEORGE MOYER
The home court was no advan
tage to Nebraska's hapless Corn
tmskers Monday night as they lost
81-56 to Kansas State.
Nebraska never even had the
satisfaction of pressing the Wild
cats, who romped to their eighth
straight win. Kansas State ran
eleven points before Nebraska got
into the scoring column.
After Bob Boozer, former Omaha
Tech star dropped a free throw
for the first Wildcat point his
teammates Jack Parr, Don Matu
Jsak and Roy DeWitz used a fast
break offense to put Kansas State
safely out of reach.
Nebraska looked helpless the
first half. They were forced to
shoot Over a tight Kansas State
pone defense and wound up with
horrid 18 per cent shooting aver
age from the floor. Kansas State
shot a robust 41 per cent and left
the floor at the half leading 43-22.
Nebraska decided to get into the
ball game the second half. The
Huskers equalled the scoring pace
set by the Kansans and, sparked
by captain Rex Ekwall, who
played a tremendous game, poured
in five straight points at one time.
Gary Reimers hit a long shot to

Kansas State, principal chal
lenger of Kansas for the Big Seven
basketball title, is scoring its vic
tories more decisively than any
other team in the league.
Conference statistics for games
to date show that the Wildcats, de
fending champions and firmly
lodged in second place for the 5-2
record, have an average spread of
12.3 points over their opponents.
K-State has averaged 66.9 points

shave the Kansas State lead to
55-35 with fourteen minutes left in
the game. However, Boozer and
Parr soon regained command of
the situation and from then on the
game was routine.
Parr's beautiful soft hook and
fadeaway jump shot netted the
6'9" junior 25 points. He si so
grabbed fourteen rebounds to tie
Boozer for the lead in that depart
ment. Boozer played only part
time and still grabbed 23 points.
The big fellow used a deadly hook
with either hand and a sky-scraping
jump shot to demoralize the
Huskers from close in.
Rex Ekwall turned in his high
est total this year. The lantern
jawed senior made 18 points to
boost him just that much closer
to the all-time Nebraska scoring
record. Ekwall also grabbed 11 re
bounds to lead the Huskers in that
Kansas State surprised with a
good fast break. Eddie Wallace,
