Big 8 Officials
To Discuss Fate
Of Husker-Buf f Tilt
By Chip Wood
University of Nebraska ath
letic director Bill Orwig will
make an official protest t o
the Big Eight conference and
Colorado in regard to the
ColoradoaNebraska basket
ball game played at Colo
rado, January 30.
The protest is being made
due to discrepancies in the
method of timing the game,
which Nebraska lost in an
overtime, 62-57.
Orwig said that the Husk
ers had a 50-50 chance of
winning the protest. He is
going to Kansas City Febru
ary 25, to the Big Eight
meeting of faculty represent
atives. It,is not known which
day, Thursday or Friday, the
protest will come before the
faculty group.
The dispute arose over the
allowance of two extra sec
onds of play at the end of
the game when the "clock
showed there were five sec
onds remaining. The official
timekeeper explained this by
saying that he had allowed
the clock to run two seconds
after the officials had whis
tled CU's Don Butler for a
foul against Jim Kowalke.
The time clock is the offi
cial timing piece in Big
Eight games and it cannot
be set back unless the offi
cials are notified.
Charles Bitter, who keeps
official time on the bench at
Colorado games, said in re
gard to why he didn't notify
the officials, "There was such
a short time left in the game
that N I didn't think it would
make any difference."
Colorado was able to come
down the court and score in
seven seconds to tie the game
up and go on to win in the
overtime. Bitter's unimpor
tant alteration cost Nebraska
the game.

Because of the bad diamond
break South must give up one

It takes a trump opening
