The agony of defeat.
Nebraska guard Al Nissen laid prostrate
on the floor of Kansas' Allen Field House in
utter disbelief. He watched as Jayhawk fans
lifted Kansas reserve Fred Bosilevac to their
shoulders for a victory ride.
Kansas had just beaten Nebraska in the
final two seconds of overtime when
Bosilevac stole an inbounds pass from
Husker forward Mike Peterson and dribbled
in for the winning lay-up. The loss,
Nebraska's tenth straight at Lawrence,
enabled Kansas to grab a share of the Big
Eight lead with the Huskers. Both teams
now have 4-1 conference records.
"This was the toughest loss that I've had
since I've been here," Nebraska Coach Joe
Cipriano said Sunday of the Kansas game.
But he said that Saturday's heart-breaking
loss did not seriously hurt the Huskers'
chances of winning the Big Eight title. "If
you win at home and split on the road,
you'll be in the thick of it. So we're not out
of it yet."
Until the last three minutes in regulation
of the Kansas game, the Huskers played
about as well as they could, according to
Cipriano. He was especially pleased with the
play of Nissen, who scored 16 points and
u avided invaluable leadership during the

fans) led 55-51 with 3:43 left in regulation
play. However, the Jayhawks, with the aid
of a Husker turnover, scored two quick
baskets to tie the score with 1:59 to go.
Nebraska elected to run down the clock for
a final shot, but Peterson's jump shot from
the foul line with five seconds left was long.
Kansas controlled the tip to start the
overtime and immediately began to run the
clock out. After a missed free throw by
Kansas' Aubrey Nash with 3:12 left in the
overtime, the Huskers' got the rebound and
began stalling for a final shot. However,
Nebraska was forced into a jump ball with
just eight seconds left when Nissen took too
much time on his ball-controlling dribbling.
The veteran NU guard was matched with
Nash who controlled the tip to teammate
Randy Canfield. The KU center scored a
quick basket, but was called for travelling.
The Cornhuskers had the ball
out-of-bounds with two seconds remaining,
but lightening then struck in the form of

"The seniors really took the loss tough,"
Cipriano noted. "But they'll bounce back."

Oklahoma 70-58 at Manhattan Saturday
"They (Kansas State) have the tallest
team in the league," Cipriano said. 'They
have been playing a lot of sophomores,
which should help us. They have also been
hot and cold: if their guards are hot then
they'll be hard to stop." J

President Nixon has invited Coach Bob
Devaney, President D.B. Varner and seven
Nebraska football players to the White
House Tuesday, Sen. Carl Curtis announced
The players invited to attend are
co-captains Jerry Tagge and Jim Anderson
and five players who received national
honors Johnny Rodgers, Rich Glover, Willie
Harper, Larry Jacobson and Jeff Kinney.
Devaney received another honor Saturday
when he was named to coach the College
All-Stars against the Super Bowl champion
Dallas Cowboys in the annual Chicago
Tribune-sponsored game which will be held
July 28 at the Windy City's Soldier Field.
The Nebraska coach is only the second
college coach in two decades to be handed
the coaching assignment for the All-Stars.
Devaney will not have an easy task since the
All-Stars haven't beaten the pro champions
since 1963 when the Green Bay Packers
were defeated 20-1 7.
"This is a tremendous honor," Devaney
said of his appointment. "We will certainly
look forward to playing the Dallas Cowboys
and we realize what a challenge the All-Stars
will face but we'll approach the game with
the idea of winning it."
