IM Title To
Phi Psi's
By Bob Flasnick
Phi Kappa Psi A capped a
perfect season Friday after
noon in the NU Coliseum by
thrashing Rogers 115 to 47 in
the All-University intramural
basketball championshi
The superiority of the Phi
Psi's was evident from the
outset as they completely
dominated the dorm cham
pion Rogers.
Rogers held their own on
the backboards against t h e
taller Phi Psi's but could not
come close to the defense or
offense exhibited by the fra
ternity champions.
Rogers scoring leader Jer
ry Patton was cold through
out most of the first half, as
was the rest of the Rogers
team, while the Phi Psi's, in
contrast, seldom missed.
Patton started tc hit near
the close of the first half
but his effort was offset bv
the 30-foooters of Phi Psi
short man Steve Zimmers as
gigantic 50-18 halftime lead.
The Phi Psi's cooled off in
the second half but as t h e
weakening Rogers defense be
gan to allow them more and
more shots the Phi Psi's con
tinued to pile up their im
pressive score.
Near the midway point of
the second half a timeout was
called and Intramural Direc
tor Joel Meier introduced both
teams to the growing crowd
of state high school basket
ball tournament enthusiasts.
Meier pointed out that the
Phi Psi's had prep all-staters
in John Kamerzell, Bill Mar
shall. Gary Niebauer, and La
rv Wachholtz on their sauad.
The single all-stater for Rog
ers was Saginaw, Michigan
product Jerry Patton.
With 3:06 'left in the game
Zimmers pumped through two
free throws which allowed the
Phi Psi's to hit the 100 point
Patton garnered 24 points
to lead the Rogers' scorers
followed bv Roger Hot with
10. Ernie Wadsworth and Bill
Roker with 6 and Richard
Karohl with 1.
Kamerzell and Wachholtz
each scored 25 points to pace
the Phi Psi onslaught. Gary
Neibauer and Bill Marshall
finished with 22 and 18 re

Three events were won by
Big Eight representatives and
in the, team standings four of
the first six teams were from
the Big Eight.
Nebraska's Charlie Greene
defended h i s 60-yard dash

new record in the event. Sun

one-tenth of second better
than his winning effort of last

the team crown with 14
points. Southern California
was second with 13.
Then came Nebraska (12),
Central State of Ohio (12),
Kansas State (9M), and Okla

Nebraska might have been
higher in the final standings

Prep Stars Choose Nebraska
Cipriano Is 'Delighted'
Two Nebraska high school
basketball stars have an
nounced their intentions to en
roll at the University of Ne
braska next year.
Bob Gratopp, one of the
state's finest cage players,
and Doug Andersen, a track
star as well as a basketball
star, have expressed their
faith in Joe Cipnano s pro
gram at Nebraska.
Gratopp was one of the
most highly sought after stars
of the season. Over thirty
schools expressed interest in
him. Gratopp averaged thirty
points per game and nearly
eighteen rebounds.
He was 1966 All-State foot
ball choice and was named
to the 1965 All-State basket
ball team. He holds the Class
-B' scoring record in one
game in the state tournament
with a 50 point effort.
He was a member of the
Class 'B' champion team,
Geneva, in 1965. Geneva lost
to Hebron in the district tour
nament this year.
Gratopp will major in Busi

the 600-yard run, but so were
three others and Crook f i n
ished fourth.
Martin McGrady of Central
State was the swiftest of the
swifties in the 600-yard run
and won in a time of 1:09.4.
Crook's fourth place time
was 1:09.9. The old record
was 1:10.
Lynn Headley finished fifth
in the 60-yard dash to give
Nebraska extra points in the
team race.
Defending Champion Okla
homa State led most of t h e
way in the tw o-mile relay and
eventually won the race, stav
ing off a late Villanova charge
by anchor man Dave Patrick.

"There are plenty of tickets

games and it was the only
place I wanted to play," said
Andersen. "I'm really looking

Coach Joe Cipriano was
"delighted" that both stars
decided in facor of Nebraska.
"We are real pleased that both
bays decided so early for us,"
he said.
"To say that Bob Gratopp
is the finest forward in t h e
state whom we have seen is
fairly clear why we are so
happy to get him," said Cip

he continued.
No Season
March Madness has come
and gone with its usual dis
play of basketball upsets and
crowd enthusiasm.
The meager crowd in the
Omaha Auditorium for the
Class A finale should bring
cries from those fans who
would like to see the whole
show back in Lincoln.
For those who didn't wish
to take in the boys tourna
ment, there was the Iowa
Girl's show broadcast over
one of the Omaha TV stations.
And for those who didn't
want any part of all the bas
ketball going on there was
the opening of the spring
baseball season among the
grapefruits and cactus o,'
Florida and Arizona.
It's that strange time it
year; not quite spring, not
quite winter.
Baseball players are hold
ing out for higher salaries
and basketball players all
trying to hold out for the rest
of the season.
It's the season for all
sports. The time for shower
sitters, marathon Softball
pitchers, and long distance
singers (record: 1001 times
through "I'm Henry the
VIII, I Am" done from the
top of a drive-in).
Pool halls are giving way to
back yard pools, but fighting
it all the way. In Santa Cruz,
California, the local pool hall
is offering free games for A's
on your report card.
Football players are loung
ing in their off-season con
templating joining the Team
ster's Union under the father
ship of Jimmy Hoffa.
They figure they could get
compensation for their torn
Achilles tendons.
Sports Illustrated reports
that BB guns are very popu
lar again this spring.
They are being used to train
our troops. City boys, unac
customed to guns, are given
a BB gun and sent through a
lane surrounded by rough ter
rain. Metal silhouettes pop up
along the way and the idea
is for the trainee to pop him
with his BB gun.
