NU Nine Can Climb
To Third In Big Eight
Nebraska's baseball team closes the Big Eight season
here with three games Friday and Saturday against
Kansas State. .
Two seven inning games will be played Friday start
ing at 1:30 p.m. and a nine-inning contest is scheduled
Saturday morning at 11 a.m. The early start is to avoid
conflict with the finals of the high school track meet.
The Cornhuskers can finish as high as third and as low
as sevent in the league race, when a majority of the pos
sible combinations are figured on the final weekend's
activity, Coach Tony Sharpe said.
To climb to third position would require another three
game sweep such as the Huskers put over on Oklahoma
last weekend.
The Huskers have but two hitters over .300, Steve Smith
at .354 and Jerry Harris .343.
Jan Wall pitched 8 innings in the Oklahoma series
and got credit for all three victories in a relief role. He
pulled his earned run average down from 4.75 to 3.72, in
this one three-game set.
Rex Swett and Steve Smith hit the first home runs the
Huskers have been able to collect this season against the
Sooners. Smith's clout was a three-run tie breaker.

Star Nod
Given To
Jan Wall
Husker righthander Jan Wall
earns the Daily Nebraskan
Star of The Week nod for the
week of May 8-14 for his re
lief work against Oklahoma
the past weekend.
The "Nebraska junior had
been having trouble getting
anybody out in a starting role
when he was relegated to the
bullpen corps.
Nebraska Coach Tony
Sharp ealled on the lean right
hander three times Friday
and Saturday ad each time
Wall came through with top
performances against the
hard-hitting Sooners .
Wall pitched 81-3 innings
in relief in the three games
and gained credit for the win
in all three contests, raising
his won-lost mark to 4-3 and
dropping his 7RA from 4.75 to
a respectable 3.72.
His relief showing allowed
the Huskers to sweep the first
three-game series of the year
and moved them into a posi
tion to challenge for third
place in the Big Eight.
Nebraska has a chance to
reach the .500 level in the Big
Eight this weekend when the
Huskers entertain Kansas
State in a season ending
three-game series.
