Monday, March 4, 1963 The Daily Nebraskan Oklahoma wrestlers blank Huskcrs, 35-0 Overtime hands Huskcrs fifth loss- By Gcorjtc Kaufman Sports Editor Oklahoma, ranked third in the nation and third in the Big Eight, was number one in the Coliseum Saturday night, as the Sooner wrest lers whitewashed NU, 35-0. Orval Borgialli team was behind 10-0 before the meet even started as NU elected to forfeit the 130- and 137 pound classes to the visitors. The Huskers almost got something started when Den nis Dobson jumped out to a 5-0 lead in points in the 145 pound clash. But OU's Mike Grant fought back and pinned the Husker to put them up to Nebraska then lost t hr e e close ones down the last half, as Dick Kerr (160) had to forfeit with a rib injury af ter being down just 2-1; Har ry Gaylor (167) lost to Den nis Brand, 4-1: and Husker heavyweight Gene Libal fail ed against the Sooners' Char lie Shivers, 3-1. Asked what it was like to wrestle in front of 150 fans instead or his usual 6,000-seat sellouts, Oklahoma coach Tommy Evans said, "It takes quite a bit out of the meet. It feels good to have a crowd there, whether its our crowd or theirs. It gets the boys up to have a little noise." As it was, about the only noise heard in the Coliseum Saturday night was during younger -kids' exhibition be fore the NU-OU match, in which at least the parents were yelling. It was the final home meet for the Huskers as the Soon ers headed toward Kansas State with a 11-2 record, the losses owed to No. 1 and No. 2 Iowa State and Okla homa State. Nebraska is now 4-11-1 in their season's dual competi tion. 121 S Kpeley, Oil, nc. Thon, NU, M. 130 Rloc. li, by fnrMJ. 137 T KMlcv.

Kan sas two weeks ago, 1 was convinced that Kansas was tSe'teS whS deserved to he the Big Eight representa tive at Wichita this year in the NCAA tournament But despite the 71-60 defeat the Huskers had iu s t suffered 1 still did not consider the Jayhawks any better thai! ? the Nebraskans. And I was to be proven correct in that 10 days later in Lincoln. The reason I felt KU to be the deserving team was the tremendous fan support the Jayhawks appreciate in Lawrence - And road trips don't seem to diminish t h e Rock-Chalk spirit, either. If you will remember after the KU loss in the Coliseum their band remained where they were and, with the cheerleaders and fans accom panying them, played the KU spirit song before leaving. You have to go to Lawrence to understand why any visiting team is at a loss before the buzzer even sounds. Huge Allen Fieldhouse is filled with colorful banners and the KU cheerleaders boy types get out on the floor and put on a pre-game performance which get the ians so high that it makes Nazi rally films look pale in con trast when the KU tcsm emerges from the dressing rooms. And it doesn't let up during the game. The cheer leaders come up in the balconies during the game and keep the spirit high. Changed My Mind But the two home games since the loss have changed my mind about that. Suddenly, a new brand of spirit seems to have emerged here at Nebraska. The crowd at rthe, Kansas game was the most spirited and "up" mob I I have ever witnessed, here or anywhere else. j From the time the "Olympic" broom team was an- : "nounced to the time the normally lackluster male NU j cheerleaders dragged a dummy Jayhawk out on the floor I by rope tied around its neck, the crowd was earsplittmg, solidly behind the Huskers. mnimiuii.yiiii.iM iiiiiMiiiiiuiiiinii juii,iii iiiiii jiiimjimiiiiimilM mini n " a 11 I ,: r-- L J W x 7 f in hi J hi iinif mmmmm4- 4ui in in p iriniiif.

The old i u ti th dpriarpd nf. Huskcrs finish fourth by George Kaufman Sports Editor They say basketball is the most emotional of all sports. If that is the case, then Big Eight basketball is easily the most emotional competition in the world. And, as if the league hadn't already proven the fact in the grueling dog fight for the championship this year, Nebraska fans went home believers Friday night, drained of all emotion and not quite believing what they had just seen. Because what they had just seen was a story-book contest between two of the contend ers which unfortunately came out as if someone from Iowa Stale had written the story. With just six seconds left to go in an overtime period, the Cyclones' last-minute hero Steve Cooper drilled a shot from the corner to cap a ser ies of I-State rallies and de feat the Cornhuskers, 93-92. Not conceding But NU coach Joe Cipriano, though naturally dejected by the turn of events, did not con cede a thing about his team's chances in the race now. "It's a very funny race," he said after the game. "'Any thing can still happen." It was generally assumed that the loser of Fridav's clash might as well retire to the shower room for the rest of the season, and assuming Cip's ''anything" that might happen was Colorado beating front-runner Kansas State Sat urday afternoon it didn't hap pen. Still a chance i breath and the - two weary teams went at it again for a five-minute overtime. Iowa State leaped out to an 89-56 lead, but with 3:16 to go a pair of free throws by surprising soph Sam Martin put the' Huskers into a 92-91 lead. Charity missed NU senior Jim Damm then missed a first free toss with 58 seconds remaining and I State's Dave Collins had a layup nullified on a charging foul as the clock worked for Nebraska. With 18 seconds remaining Damm was fouled again, but a bit of Glen Anderson strat egy may have paid off. The Iowa State mentor called two consecutive timeouts before Damm could shoot the char ity, trying to build the pres sure on the Bellflower, Calif., guard. Damm missed and the Cy clones cleared it up to 6-3 soph Cooper, who had just come in on the Damm foul shot, and his heart-stopper' from the corner wrote the end to it when another long shot by Lantz failed. Tlatoon system Cipriano had tried a sort of "platoon" basketball on the visitors all through the game, constantly switching what he considers his "'defense" man and his "shooters." . The NU defense again failed to shut down dangerous Smith inside, as the 6-8 se nior stuffed in 38 points, just one less than in the Cy clone victory in Ames this year. Cain followed with 21 and Collins with 14. Dynamic Duo For the Huskers, the Dynamic Duo did it again, Lantz with 23 and Baack 22. Third in scoring for Cipriano was a real surprise sopho more Sam Martin, who had played very little for the Scarlet and Cream this sea son. The Pawnee City guard came through under pressure and really helped out when NU found itself in early foul trouble. Another soph, but one with a little more experience for the Huskers, Gratopp of Geneva, hit for 13. The Huskers now travel "to Columbia to take on the Mis souri Tigers in the last game of the race, and must count on outside help for a share of the prizes. The overtime loss was only the second setback the four NU seniors Lantz, Baadc, Damm and Ron Simmons had suffered in the Coliseum." 3t nwa Slaw (Ml tt-let fl-fia rrk Cam .....6-17 8-7 4 Cnllina -ll 2-4 10 S Smith 13-1H U-U 19 Abraham-inn ..

I;'. 1 Championships vv surprises for the fans at the ' Noise Helps I have no doubt but that the type of crowd helped to large degree in the upset of the Jayhawks. The Col iseum is the kind of facility which lends itself to that kind of "home court advantage." Where this new spirit came from I do not know. Nor do I want to find out; for it would blunt the purpose of the spirit to pinpoint the organizers and give them credit for a type of spirit which must come equally from everyone in the crowd. But, after the kind of spirit which was displayed in the KU and Iowa tSate games with the exception of a brief and perhaps justified littering of the floor I feel NU has just as much right to represent the conference as any other team, from a fan support and interest view point. Whoever helped get this going, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, wherever you arc. It was the kind of thing that was sorely needed around here this season. Though it was a little late in coming, It was very welcome. INTERVIEWING ON CAMPUS FARiUAND INDUSTRIES 3315 N. Oak Traffics ay K.C., lo.. 64116 TUESDAY, MARCH 5 In These 4 Areas I O Oll. 8. 2.

Some of the surprises were pleasant and some disappoint ing, it all depended upon which school you were sup porting. One of the nicer surprises for the Nebraska fans was when Oklahoma's Pon Tull dropped out of the high jump runnings at 6' 8". Tull favored Tull was favored to win the event with Nebraska's Steve Krebs and Jack Todd finishing second and third resoectivelv. ' Tull's miss cleared the way ting of a new world record fr k'rPh tn finish first, but the 60-yard low hurdles Todd, too, had his problems and ended his jumping at 6' 4" after he missed the pit on his first jump, land in? on he wood floor and injuring his foot. Todd was just one of the NU team members who did not place after being ranked high in the pre-meet stan dards. He was joined by Uil ton Forbes m the 60-yard dash the shot put and Forbes in the 440-yard dash. It was a pleasant surprise to NU's fans when Mike Randall followed Morran across the tape with one of the three one-two team fin ishes in the meet. Other one-two finishers were by brothers Glen and Wayne Long of Oklahoma in the 60-yard dash and in the 1-000 yard run by Gene Mc Clain and Roger Kathol of the winning Kansas team.

Tied games Then Bill Cain hit the first of a one-and-one and missed the s e c o n"d, allowing Don Smith to draw a foul on the rebound for the Cyclones. Smith also made the first one and missed the next, but ISU got the ball again and a des peration layup by 6-1 Mike Murray with nine seconds left tied it up.
