Daryl Petsch hit a short
hook from under the basket
with one second showing to
give Nebraska a two - point
win over Iowa State last
Saturday night, 57-55.
The shot, capped a spirited
Husker rally which saw them
come from a nine-point def
icit at halftime to even their
league mark at 5-5.
' Nebraska has now climbed
to fourth place in the Big
Eight race. Close behind the
Cornhuskers are Kansas, Mis
souri, and Iowa State with
5-6 marks.
The Huskers fought their
way to a 55-55 tie with 4:02
left on a layup by Jim
Yates, then called time with
only 1:56 remaining
When play resumed the
Cornhuskers went into their
sideline stall, which has been
so effective often this year.
Once again NU was able to
keep the ball away from the
Cyclones with very little
With 16 seconds to go the
Huskers, still in possession,
began to work for a shot.
A pass from the side went
to Jones who missed a jump
er with 0:06 left, Yates con
trolled the rebound in the
corner. The 6-8 center then
found Petsch with a pass
down the baseline.
Petsch, the left-handed se
nior from Marysville, Kan
sas, brought the 5,700 fans to
their feet as he twisteli past
laid a reverse layup through
the nets as the final gun
Tonight the Huskers will
have their hands full with an
other Big Eight contest.
Kansas, a team tied for
fifth just below Nebraska,
will visit the Coliseum with
tipoff time at 8:05. NU must
win this to keep in contention
for a first division spot.
Nebraska, always tough on
its home court, will finish its
season on the road after to
night. So far NU has a 7-14 season
mark. A look at the home
and away records will show
how the Huskers fare at
home and on the road.
At home the Cornhuskers
are 6-5 for a .545 clip, while
on the road the only victory
was over Iowa State against
9 losses for a .100 pace.
A win over the Jayhawks
could give the Huskers the
momentum need to succeed
on the road. In their last
three outtings the Huskers
visit Colorado, Oklahoma,
and Oklahoma State.
The Buffs and the Cowboys
are two of the teams above
NU in the loop race, while the
Sooners are the last place
team with a 2-9 mark.
Petsch, who scored the
Huskers' last point, also
opened the NU scoring with
a nifty three-point play which
gave the Huskers a lead they
kept until Iowa State tied
the score at 19-19 with 7:37

Field events came into the
spotlight Saturday afternoon
as the Nebraska track
squad downed a weak Iowa
State crew 77-45.
Big Jim Beltzer, sophomore
from Grand Island, set a new
varsity record in the shotput.
The brawny, blond Husker
tossed the shot 53-ll34.
Junior Jack Cramer from
Lincoln was the other bright
spot as he high jumped 64.
This mark equaled the varsity
record set by Harry Krebs
last year. And was four
inches over anything Cramer
has jumped this season.
Other fild events saw Ne
braska's Vic Brooks take the
broad jump in 23-93A and
Iowa State's Dave Chipman
and Ed Eneboe tie for first
in the pole vault at 13 feet.
The pole valut was the only
event in which the Cyclones
were able to take a first
place, and there they made
a one-two-three sweep.
On the track, the Nebras
kans found little competition
and all the races were won
with relative ease.
Gil Gebo, shifting to the 440,
coasted, to a, : 50.3 time. How
ever, this mark did set a new
meet record.
Sophomore Dave Crook ran
Gebo's specialty, the 600, and
had no trouble running 1:12.8
to equal a meet record held
by Gebo.
Kent McCloughan will head
into the Big Eight champion
ships next week undefeated
he ran :06.4 in the 60 yard
In the hurdles, Ron Moore
came back after a muscle
injury last week to take the
highs in :07.4 and the lows in
:07. The latter mark equals
the varsity record established
in 1949 by Bill Moomey.
Trouble in the hurdle de
partment continued as Pres
ton Love pulled out of the
highs and scratched the lows.
Lynn Headley; nursing a mus
cle injury, did not run again
Saturday and will go into the
Big 8 meet without ever
having competed in a college
varsity meet,
Junior Larry Toothaker set
a new meet record in the
grueling two-mile run. His
time was 9:43.5.
The mile relay broke an
other meet record as Kent
McCloughan, Peter Mills,
Dave Crook and Gil Gebo
ran a 3:26.6 time. '
Peter Scott scored a dou
ble by winning the mile with
a 4:24.5 clocking and taking
the 1,000 in 2:18.1 In the 880,
sophomore Ticker Lillis won
with a 1:58.8 time.
