Rain or shine, snow or sleet,
cold or coldei, the Intramural
basketball tournament goes
on as usual.
The Misfits moved ahead
early against Navy ROTC,
and steadily widened their
lead for a comfortable 45-29
win. Bob Andrews paced the
winners, but was backed by
a good team effort.
The Aggies and the Hustlers
played a tense game all the
way with the lead changing
hands many times. The Ag
gies finally came out on top
41-40. Gerald Larson scored 15
points for the Aggies with
Bernie Trausch close behind
at 11. Ron Moxham and Dick
Bowers potted 12 and 13 points
respectively in a losing cause.
After being tied at the half
Hitchcock spurted to a nine
point advantage over Benton
at the three-quarter point
This was too much for Benton
as Hitchcock won by the final
score of 44-33. Hitchcock's
Kaye Carstens and Benton's
Terry Chaillie shared game
honors with 15 points each.
Carstens teammate, Dean
Beck, had ten points as did
Benton's Cliff Knispil.
Beta Theta Pi "B" won an
other close one Monday. This
one over Phi Kappa Psi "B".
The Betas' defensive ace,
Van Vanle, held the Phi Psi's
usual high scorer, Bob
Churchich, out of the picture
making them look elsewhere
for points. In the first half
Jammie Ammerman took over
the role scoring all 11 of his
total points in this period. He
was shut down in the second
half and this was just enough
to make the difference. While
not playing defense Vahle
scored enough to lead the Bet
as with 11 points
Delta Upsilon "B" swamped
Ag Men "B" 48-29 on t h e
strength of three men in
double figures. Jack Buch
finch had 13 and Rick Rock
well and Bob Meduna each
scored ten. The D U's had
little trouble as they opened
up a 21 point lead at the end
of three quarters. Gary Mul
ler was high for the losers
with ten points.
Phi Delta Theta "C" had an
easy time of it in defeating
Sigma Chi "C" 48-23. "Ches
ter" Salem couldn't miss as
he hooped the ball from as
tounding distances for a grand
total of 13 points, high for the
game. The Sigma Chi's were
oehind all the way and
couldn't find a man to score
in double figures.
Glenn took an early lead
and widened It in the late
goins despite pressure from
Kennedy to win 46-37. Veldon
Magnuson paced the winners
with 16 points with Ron
Finke's 13 points a close sec
ond. Ron Lockard scored 16
for Kennedy.
Sigma Phi Epsilon "A" kepi
rolling along in their league
with a convincing 49-33 win
over Pioneer House. The Sig
Eps compiled margins of three
to five points in each quarter
for the win. The Sig Eps' Tim
Schmad was again high scor
er with 16 points. Tom Ham
scored 15 points for Pioneer
House.
Another outstanding point
output by Bob Witte and Bill
Zuspan raised Sigma Nu "A"
past their opponent. This
time it was a tough Cornhus
ker Co-op "A" team by the
score of 5449. Witte potted
28 while Zuspan was dumping
17. Sigma Nu was up 16 points
at the half only to see a fan
tastic Co-op third quarter put
them down by three. Wayne
Johnson and Ernie Novak each
scored ten for the losers while
Gene Zitek scored 12.
"Devaney's crew plus one"
stomped out a win for Burnett
over Canfield 64-48. Devaney's
crew consisted of Freeman
White (18 points), Harry Wil
son (11 points), and Ted Vac
tor (12 points) while the "plus
one", was Dale Sail (13
points). This formidable team
was just too much for Can
field to contend with. John
Elifson scored 18 points and
Jerry Patton scored 16 points
trying to stop them.
The reports of two games
played Monday which didn't
make yesterday's paper fol
low. Canfield allowed Seaton 1 15
points in the first quarter
and then allowed them only 16
points the rest of the game
to coast to a 63-35 victory.
John Elifson potted 20 points
for Canfield while Al Kuehl
and Ivan Zimmer pointed 12
and 14 respectively. Only man
in double figures for Seaton I
was Danny Richnafsky with
13.

Coach Joe Cipriano Is long overdue for some praise
for his fine job this year at the helm of the basketball
Cornhuskers.
He has brought a team that was short on experience,
short on depth, and long on sophomores to a team which
is gaining in experience, acquiring depth, and making the
most out of what height it has.
"Cip" has found what apparently is the style of play
that his boys can handle most adequately, the zone press.
On most occasions, the Huskers have made quite good
use of the zone press, and it has contributed dividends to
the good side of the win-lose column.
But Cipriano's biggest contribution to Nebraska bas
ketball cannot be fully ascertained this year, but will have
to be evaluated in the next two campaigns. The invalu
able experience and seasoning that the sophomores are
gaining this year will surely be felt when the boys are
juniors and seniors.
One thing Cipriano has failed to do, however, is to
develop an effective scorer at the post. Bob Antalov look
ed like the answer during the first few games of the sea
son, but he fizzled quite badly just before he was sent
home from the Kansas State game at Manhatten.
Brice Pearson showed a real flair toward the middle
of the season, reaching his peak at the Colorado game
away before he injured his ankle in that contest. Pearson
has been only at half strength since early February.
Pearson must learn to look for the shot if he is ever to
become an effective pivot man, and on offensive rebounds,
he would do better, it would seem, to go up with more
authority when on a follow-up shot.
Pearson has improved markedly from last year, and
even the early season this year, and he could be the ray
of hope at the post position.

Last week you said you
were considering the
merits of mink fanning.

You didn't also
realize, did you,
that when you graduate
your dad will cut
off your allowance?
3. 1 must admit the thouglit

Ha die thought ever
entered your mind
that you might get a
job and make a career
for yourself?
4. WTiat about my thirst for
knowledge?
Just because you work
doesn't mean you have
to stop learning.
). But what do I know about
insurance?
With your thirst for
knowledge, I'm Jure
youU be the star
of their development
program.
5. You mean earn while learning?

The Husker Headliner
award of the week goes to
Grant Simmons, 6'3" junior
guard.
Simmons has come of age
as far as scoring goes, and
has been in double figure
the last several eames. Since
the Iowa State game at Lin-
coin on January 18, Simmons
has been high man for the
Huskers on four of eight occa
sions. He has tallied 269 points
this year for about a 12.3
points per game average.
His field goal percentage
has been outstanding through
out the year, and he is pres
ently hitting at a clip of over
lorty per cent trom tne floor.
Simmons greatest asset to
the team is not his scoring
proficiency but his hustle and
team leadership. Simmons
and Willie Campbell are the
mainstays of the successful
zone press the Huskers have
used of late.
Simmons is a great all
around athlete, and hails

Grant Simmons
from Omaha Benson where he
was an All-America but not
in basketball! Simmons
eoeroi
played end in high school foot,
ball where he garnered many
of his laurels. He was out
standing lineman in the Shrine
Bowl football game after his
senior year.
If Simmons has a fault on
the maples, it is probably his
tendency toward erratic de
fense. He has a tendency to
let his man get a step on him,
and then commit a foul in try
ing to recover position.
Simmons however, is cap
able of coming up with the
big defensive steal at any
time, and his harrassing tac
tics are effective and the
cause of many opponents' mis
takes. Simmons' defense is getting
better all the time, and with
the advent of additional de
fensive consistency, Grant
could be one of the top
guards in the Big Eight Con-
. ference.
Fred Hare, sophomore sen
sation was in strong content
ion for the award for the
third straight time.
