Husker Cagers End
Home Stand Victorious
By Dave Wohlfarth
Big Bob Harry topped off
a three-year basketball ca
reer at Nebraska with a
standout performance to
spark the Huskers past Okla
noma State, 54-4, Saturday,
in the Coliseum.
Harry was one of four sen
iors on the squad playing
tneir last nome game for NU,
Harry, Wayne Hester, Her
schell Turner and Dick Ship
wright, all were instrumental
in leading the Huskers to
their seventh wm of the sea
son and fourth conference
Harry was the man of the
hour for the Huskers. The
big scrapper from York was
the game's high scorer with
14 points, hitting 11 of them
to keep the Huskers else in
the first half.
'Dock' was tough on the
boards and it was during a
scramble for a rebound late
in the game that he injured
his knee. The injury forced
him out with 2:44 left in the
game and the Huskers ahead
49-42. The 6' 6" center re
ceived loud applause from
the crowd of 4,000.
Coach Jerry Bush had un
limited praise for Harry, say
ing, "Bob Harry played the
finest game of his career to
night." Doubts Availability
Bush doubted if Harry
would be available for the
two remaining Husker games
due to his knee ailment, a re
occurance of an old high
school injury.
Will Harry
Finish Out
BB Season?
The question whether or not
Bob Harry will be able to fin
ish out the basketball season
with the Huskers still remains
Harry suffered a knee in
jury in Saturday's game
agrunst Oklahoma State and
was forced to r e t i r e in the
late minutes of the contest.
Sunday afternoon Nebraska
trainer Paul Schneider re
ported that Harry had suf
fered a knee sprain.
"We can tell more about
Bob's condition on Wednes
day," Schneider said.
The senior center has had
trouble with his knee before.
Gym Team Takes
Third in All-College
The Husker gymnastic team
took third place in the All
College Invitational Gymnas
tic meet Saturday, scoring 115
points in the two day meet
held in Colorado Springs.
The Air Force Academy
won the meet for the second
straight year by rolling up
169 points.
Individual Winners for Ne
braska were Karl Byers, on
the side horse, and Charles
Williams, in the rope climb.

Swett Starts Rally
Nebraska got its first good
lead when Rex Swett hit two
free throws to give NU a 19
14 lead with 5:36 left in the
first half.
OSU roared back as Eddie
Bunch netted four quick
buckets to give the Cowboys
a 26-24 at halftime lead.
In the second half Nebras
ka cracked the tough cow
boy defense and OSU cooled
off after hitting a sizzling 50
per cent from the field in the
first half.
Nebraska forged ahead, 30-
29, when Turner tipped in a
missed free throw early in the
second half.
NU continued to roll and
held its biggest lead with
5:42 left. Jim Kowalke hit
two free throws to give the
Huskers a 10-point pad, 48-38.

front, hitting six points. Max
ey, who tallied 11 for the
night, scored on an out-of-bounds
roll out play and was
fouled in the process. His
bucket and charity toss gave
the Huskers a 52-44 advan
tage with 1:28 remaining.
Maxey hit a final long jump
er to wrap up the game in
the final seconds.
Nebraska shot 37.8 per cent
from the field hitting 17 of
45 attempts at the line with
20 of 28.
OSU had a 33.3 per cent
field goal percentage and 73.9
per cent free throw accura
cy. The Cowboys out-rebounded
the Huskers 35 to 32.
Harry and Maxey were the
top guns for Nebraska while
Bunch led the Cowboy at-
tack, scoring 12. Moe Iba,
son of Coach Hank Iba, hit
10 for State.
The win boasted the Husk
ers into a three-way tie for
sixth in the Big Eight. Ne
braska, Oklahoma State and
Missouri are deadlocked with
4-8 conference records.
NU travels to Manhattan to
meet Kansas State Saturday.
The Wildcats are tied for first
with Kansas, the team which
the Huskers will meet next
Monday in their final game
of the season.

Will Host
Loup Meet
The University of Nebraska
will host the Big Eight Con
ference wrestling champion
ships at the Coliseum Friday
and Saturday.
This meet promises to be
the top wrestling tournament
in the nation.
For the two years Oklahoma
State, Iowa State, and Okla
homa have finished 1-2-3 in
NCAA wrestling competition.
The Big Eight has been tab
bed the "toughest wrestling
league in the nation."
The Oklahoma State grapp-
lers are favored to win the
competition, but they will
have their work cut out for
Four NCAA champions will
be participating in the mat
foray. The winning grapplers
are Ted Ellis, Oklahoma State
heavy weight; Stanley Abel,
Oklahoma Uni v e r s i t y 130
pounder; and two Iowa
Staters Larry Hayes in the
147-pound class and Les An
derson in the 137-pound class.
These champions will be
challenged by a throng of out
standing newcomers. These
grapplers include Masaski
Hatta, Oklahoma State (123);
Dick Brown, Iowa State (130) ;
Doug Wilson, Oklahoma State
(137); and Ronnie Clinton,
OSU (167).
Among the challengers is
Nebraska's Jim Raschke. At
the start of the season Ras
chke nearly defeated the
NCAA heavyweight champion.
The heavy weight match
should be one of the outstand
ing events of this weekends
Because of the adding of
two new weight classes the
meet will be one of the biggest
in conference history. Both
the 115 and the 191 weight
classes are new in the Big
Eight even though they are
contested in NCAA competi

Husker Freshmen Grab
3rd Win; Top Fairbury
By Norm Beatty
The Nebraska freshman
basketball team offset a cold
first half with a torrid final
20 minutes to b u r y Fairbury
J.C. 60-47 Saturday night at
the Coliseum.
The taller Husker yearlings
were again led by former
Lincoln High All-Stater, Chet
Paul enroute to their third
victory in as many games.
Paul copped scoring honors
of the evening with 20 points.
He was supported by team
mates Sammy Kreigh and
Mike Stacey who contributed
16 and 14 tallies, respectively.
The frosh jumped to an
early lead, 16-9, with 11:49
left in the first half behind
the shooting of Stacey, Kreigh
and Tom Ernst.
Muma Connects
Fairbury bounced back to
take a 17-16 lead with 9:07
left in the half. The shorter

to lead 27-22 at intermission.
Human Error
Caused Loss
At Colorado
"Nebraska's basketball rec
ord will stand as before" was
the verdict rendered during
the meeting of the Big Eight
Faculty Representatives Feb.
25 in Kansas City.
The Faculty Representa
tives decided that errors can
happen to anyone' They felt
that, Nebraska was the victim
of unfortunate circumstances,
but that they did not wish to
interfere in a matter that bas
ically involved human error.
Nebraska Athletic Director
Bill Orwig said, "I am very
disappointed in the faculty ac
tion, but we must abide by
the decision of the Faculty
Representatives." He said
that although Nebraska lost
the d e ci s i o n, the protest
should prevent any recur
rence of what happened to
The protest concerned the
loss of a game to Colorado in
which the timekeeper juggled
the clock in the last seconds
of play without informing the
officials or roaches.
Sugar Ray Sued
Sugar Ray Robinson has
denied bullying longshore
man, Philip Norman, 35, in
Robinson's Harlem bar dur
ing a fracas.
Norman has sued Robinson
for $150,000 for his injuries
which include two fractured
ribs. ,
