Friday, December 9, 1966 Page 6 The Daily Nebraskan iff V c "tr? Bob Churchich Churchich's Third Time A Charm? If experience is the best teacher, Nebraska should be in good command against Alabama in the Su gar Bowl with quarterback Bob Churchich at the con trols. As a sophomore Church ich directed Nebraska against Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl and last year he was the Husker signal caller in the Orange Bowl game against the Crimson Tide. And to carry the maxim a bit further, Churchich is probably hoping the third time will be the charm Jan. 2 in New Orleans, as he has yet to direct his team to victory in a bowl game. The Huskers lost to the Razor backs 10-7 in Dallas two years ago and were beaten by Alabama 39-28 in the 1966 Orange Bowl. Churchich, a more effect ive passer than runner, threw the ball 15 times in the Cotton Bowl and com pleted eight for 68 yards. That divides into a .533 per centage, which was just barely above the .529 pass ing precentage he had for the 1964 season. As a soph omore, he completed 54 of 102 passes for 893 yards and seven touchdowns in the regular season. Against Alabama last season in the Orange Bowl, Churchich completed 12 of 17 passes for 232 yards and had three aerial touchdowns which is a Nebraska one game touchdown record on passes. For the regular 1965 season, he tossed 66 passes, completing 29 of them for 405 yards and four touch downs. In the recently completed 1966 regular season, Churchich connected on 96 of 174 passes for a .552 per centage. Those 96 comple tions total 1,136 passing yards and include four touchdown strikes. In his three years with the varsity, Churchich has set 15 Nebraska records. RECORDS HELD Br CHURCHICH Passes Attempted One Game 34, vs. Colorado, 6 Passes Attempted.

It all started last year when the Nebraska chapter agreed to bet a skin (an animal hide trophy) on the outcome of the Orange Bowl game with the Crim son Tide. After Huskers had lost to Alabama 28 to 39 and the Nebraska Acacians had failed to follow through with the bet by last May, they received a letter from Ala bama asking why they had not made delivery of t h e skin. The reply, according to Brown, was that because of the fine job Alabama had done against the Huskers, the Nebraska chapter was having a hand-tooled skin made and it would take more time than a purchased skin. Brown told them that the skin would be delivered at the Acacia National Con clave in New Orleans, La. which was held last August 21. The correspondence from Alabama continued last October concerning Nebras ka's narrow victories over some weak opponents. It consisted of a series of col Colorado's Frink Credits For Successful Return After Injur CU Sports Information Colorado 's sharpshoot ing guard, Pat Frink, is back and he's better than ever. And it's no accident than he has returned from a surgically-forced year's layoff to resume firing at the same torrid pace which earned him All-Big Eight honors as a rookie two years ago. No man has ever worked harder to regain his play ing form than the Buffalo junior from Wheat Ridge. If anything, he may be more mobile following the knee repair which followed a pre season injury a year ago. Pat returned to the friend ly firs of the Colorado Fieldhouse floor Monday night and dazzeled Utah with a 36-point burst, un furling a 14-for-20 effort from the field, eight of them from beyond the 15-foot perimeter. The big r e a s o n for the quick Frink comeback was a basketball-busy summer during which he exposed himself to a rigorous run Scantlebury Scoring Leads Junior Cagers By pushing the Nebraska freshman team over the 100 mark in the yearlings' first two victories, eight players have entered the double figure scoring column in season totals. Tom Scantlebury, a guard, from Oakland, Calif, leads the scoring for the Husker squad that drove past Drake 101-90 and stomped Southwestern Iowa, 105-60. Scantlebury has 56 points on 24 field goals and an eight for eight mark in free throw attempts. Tom Line, a 6-3 guard from Los Angeles, Calif., is second in scoring with 12 field goals and three for three on the foul line for a total of 27. Bob Gratopp, 6-4 forward from Grafton, is a close third with 12 two pointers. Forward Ken Cauble of Midland, Tex., has 21 tal lies, 18 of t h e m on field goals and another forward, Larry Collins of Englewood, Calif., is among the lead DOORS OPEN NOW SHOWING isnop HAWU sTatiiiUyU TECHniCBLDII let telephone calls and registered letters. "Each letter was funnier than the one preceding it," said Brown, "but after we trampled Missouri on re gional TV, we didn't g e t any more." Then came Nebrask's tel evised loss to Oklahoma. A week after the Huskm de feat at Norman, the Aca cians at Nebraska received a sympathy card from the Alabama chapter consoling them on their "tragic loss." "It was real nice with flowers and everything on it," said Brown, "and they inquired if Nebraska would show up for the Sugar Bowl." The Alabamans added in sult to injury when ; the Crimson Tide played Au burn. In the stands was a banner reading "Acacia at Nebraska Owes Alabama a Skin" which was beamed over national TV. Following that, a newspaper clipping was published in a south ern newspaper concerning the unfulfilled wager. With the pressure mount ing, the Acacians at Ne braska have promised to deliver the skin to the Ala bama chapter, probably the night before the Sugar Bowl battle, but the Ne braskans are still undecided if they will wager again with Alabama this year. . ning schedule and was ex posed to all-time cage great Bob Cousy.

Six-five forward Mike As pen of Hastings added 10 and is the eighth yearling in double figures this sea son. After the two games, NU freethrow accuracy stands at .667 ( 30-45) while the op ponents are 34-59.

The Tigers have opened the season with victories over Cal State at Hayward, 76-54, ad Hardin Simmons, 81-71. Rated 17th in the nation last year and representing the West Coast Athletic con ference in the NCAA West ern Regionals, Pacific had their best season to date and have four starters back this year. The Tigers have been mentioned in pre - season polls this year. Coach Dick Edwards led his team to a 22-6 record last year and won the WCAC title for the first time in the school's history. Returning will be Keith Swagerty, vot ed most valuable player in the WCAC last season and mentioned for All America honors, Bob Krulish and Cousy Help y help me make up for lost time so I applied for a job asacounsellorat Mr. Cousy's basketball camp in Massachusetts." Pat was accepted and spent the full 8-week session at Cousy's Camp Graylag at Pittsfield, Mass. "It was just great," says Pat. "A perfect place to be. Lots of basketball every day and lots ofcontact with Cousy and plenty of time and space to run and strengthen my leg." That latter activity was undoubtedly the most im portant aspect of Frank's summer job. Beginning slowly and building up the distance steadily through the dirt roads which sur rounded the camp, Pat was knocking off six miles every other day during the last month. When he reported for fall practice October 15, the leg was completely sound. Aside from the scar, there's no indication any thing ever was wrong with the hinge. It goes without saying that Frink is an important member of this year's smal lish CU cast. The Buffaloes, without a proven high-scoring big man, must run more than usual and hit with deadly accuracy from out side if they are to have any success in 1966-67. Frink's involvement with Cousy should pay dividends for the Buffaloes. "The one thing I learned most from him was playing the fast break," says Pat. "He empasized keeping the ball alive with the dribble and knowing where your teammates are. We've been running alot in the early season practices and I think we can do it effectively."
