ptimio To Style,
Nebraska's basketball team
is wallowing in success these
days. It's not that the Huskers
are leading the Big Eight, but
the improvement shown since
finishing last in the preseason
tournament has been some
what remarkable.
Latest of the surprising
feats was a 54-53 upset over
Oklahoma State, former sole
leaders of the loop last Mon
day night before 4,200 fans at
the Coliseum.
Why all the sudden success?
"We feel that our players
arc getting more confidence
in the type of game we use,"
says Coach Joe Cipriano, in
his first year at the Corn
busker helm.
"Our offense and defense
are now becoming second
nature to them."
"J think this is a problem
of all coaches in their first
year," he says of the change
in philosophy from last sea
son. Another reason for the good
showing of the Huskers was
the play of Charlie Jones.
Jones, the leading NU scorer,
hit totals of 23 and 14 points
in the last two games.
The 6-1 hustler from Wash
ington, D.C., also teamed
with his partner at guard,
Grant Simmons for several
defensive plays.
Most of his shots come on

The Huskers began their
rampage with a 55-5? win at
win at Iowa State before
getting belted at Kansas. The
cagers moved into high
gear with an overtime w i n
against Missouri, 74-69, and a
victory over highly regarded
Oklahoma City.
With the pressure of final
examination staring at them,
the Huskers lost at Missouri,
78-60, and in over-time against
Kansas State, 73-66.
"We were just starting to
get an edge against Okla
homa City," says Cipriano,
"but we lost it during finals
week due to lack of practice."
But after finals and a 76-69
double overtime win against
Oklahoma, that edge came
back against the Cowboys as
"we had our best night of
basketball," says Cipriano.
"We didn't use the fast
break too much, but our pat
terns worked well, and we hit
the basket (the Huskers hit
at a clip of 51.1 per cent).
Anytime the ball is going in
the basket, you're doing all
right." -
Gives Them Lead
Nebraska's bowling team
with a tremendous 11-1 per
formance at Wichita last Sat
urday has taken the lead in
their bowling league.
Their record of 544 wins
against 29' losses gives them
a 3-game margin over second
place Kansas University.
Rounding-out the league are
Kansas State and Wichita Uni
versity. The final round of the sea
son will take place on Mar.

Many students are working
their way through the Univer
sity of Nebraska but Jeff
Atcheson is the only one doing
it with earnings from two jobs
with the Toronto Argonauts
left halfback on offense and
corner linebacker on defense.
The switch of being a stu
dent and professional football
player after not making the
grade on the Cornhusker
freshman team in 1962 is
something Jeff explains with
"The trouble was that I
wanted to play with the Arg
onauts so badly that I couldn't
keep my mind on my fresh
man football work."
Jeff enrolled as an English
major at the University this
week to resume studies he in
terrupted last spring. During
the interim he signed with the
Argonauts and played in 21
"I came out pretty well
physically," he reports hap
pily. "I just lost two front
teeth and broke my nose and
one little finger."
Originally Jeff came to Ne
braska at the suggestion of
Argonaut coaches in his na
tive Toronto.
"If I wanted to learn more
football, they told me I should
go to college in the States
just like if somebody In the
States wants to learn hockey,
they should come to Canada,"
he recalls.
He chose Nebraska because
of the Devaney football repu
tation and because Nebraska
is very good scholastically,
Jeff said.
The way to the profession
al ranks in Canada's tough,
speedy football is different
from the usual route in the
U.S.. Jeff explains.
"School football in Canada:
doesn't get the attention it
gets here, so if you really
want to play, you try out for ;
any of a number of amateur 1
teams associated with the pro
fessional clubs. While in high
school I played with the Sar
borough Rams, a suburban
amateur team. My big dream
has always been to play with
the Argonauts."
He had a chance for an Arg
onaut contract when he grad-;
uated from high school but
there were complications.
"I would have had to prove
myself in four exhibition
games and that would have ;
made me a professional, in-)
eligible to play collegiate ball ;
in the States even if I failed
to get an Argonaut contract," j
Jeff declares. I
Rather than risk his avenue :
to college, Jeff stayed out of
the exhibition games and en

Now he thinks he has a good
chance of making it all the
way through the University.
"And I want to get a col
lege degree," he says, con
vincingly. "After all you can't
play pro ball forever. The
day comes when you get hurt
or get too old and when that
day comes for me I want to
be able to do something else
like teach, or maybe adver

of the latter with a Canadian

Mancuso's woes were the loss
of sophomore sizzler Phil Mc

foot after compiling a 4-1 rec

scholastic casualty.
