Hot-handed Huskers retain lead
by Gary Seacrest
When a basketball team shoots 69 per
cent from the field you can expect a
lopsided game. But such wasn't the case.
Saturday at the Coliseum when Nebraska got
a hot hand.
"We never blow anybody off the court,"
Nebraska guard Al Nissen said following the
Huskers' 76-71 victory over Iowa State.
Despite the Husker's spectacular shooting
HOUSTON, TEX.-Nebraska won two
track events and was second in another in
the national Astrodome Championship
indoor track meet Saturday.
The big surprise of the day came when
Bob Unger ran the fastest two-mile race ever
run by a Cornhusker, winning the event with
a time of 8:41.4. His time bettered by
almost 19 seconds the Nebraska indoor
record of 9:00.2 set last year by Greg
Nebraska's other victory came with
Leighton Priestly, Larry Cimato, Wes
Leonard and Garth Case running the mile
relay in 3:07.5.
The Cornhusker's other foursome of Jeff
Wisemiller, Roger Chadwick, Dan Speck and
Jim Hawkins finished second in the two-mile
relay behind world record holder Illinois.
Southern California won the meet, but
the Huskers tied for second with Wisconsin.
(they shot better from the field than the
foul line and hit 14 of 16 shots from the
field during the second half), the Huskers
needed a comeback in the final two minutes
of the second half to take a 38-36 halftime
lead they never lost.
Nebraska's string of close games will
probably continue when the Huskers play
Missouri Tuesday night at Brewer Field
House in Columbia. Both teams enter the
7:35 contest tied for first place in the Big
Eight race with 6-2 records.
Despite the fact that the Tigers have won
40 out of their last 43 home games, the
Huskers think they have a good chance to
gain sole possession of first place.
"We should beat them," center Chuck
"I don't think it's impossible to win
there," Head Coach Joe Cipriano noted.
"We've been playing well on the road. We've
just got to make our minds up we can get
the job done. We have to be thinking we can
Missouri and Nebraska have played once
this season with the Tigers winning 74-67 in
the opening round of the Big Eight
tournament in December. Tuesday's rematch
should produce a duel between two of the
league's top scorers and rebounders the
6-10 Jura and the Tigers' 6-7 John Brown.
Both played on the U.S. Olympic
Development team last summer.
But the key to the Huskers' success will
not be one individual, according to Cipriano.

With so many teams still undefeated going into the men's
intramural basketball tournament Wednesday, it is hard to
guess who will win the "A" fraternity, dorm and independent
In the fraternity league, Alpha Tau Omega (4-0) looks like
the team to beat. But the winner of Alpha Gama Rho (5-0) vs.
Sigma Chi (4-1) or Pioneers (4-0) vs. Phi Kappa Psi (4-1) could
give the ATO's a tough run for the championship.
Gooding (6-0) and Patton (5-0) should make it to the finals
with Gooding being the winner of the dorm league
competition. But if Schramm X (5-0) can get past Schramm IV
(6-1) this week, they could be the team that goes all the way.
The independent championship is up for grabs. With five
teams still undefeated it could be anybody's ball game. But if
the Kerngers (7-0) continue to play as well as they have in the
past, they should be able to come out of the tournament still
undefeated. But watch out, the sleeper in this league could be
the Celtics (6-1).
Here are this week's top "A" intramural teams.
1. Alpha Tau Omege (4-0)
2. Alpha Gamma Rho (5-0)
3. Pioneers (4-0)
4. Phi Kappa Psi (4 1)
5. Sigma Chi (4 1)
1. Gooding (6-0)
2. Schramm X (5-0)
3. Patton (5-0)
4. Harper IX (7-1)
5. Schramm IV (6-1)
Ram Rods (7-0)
5. Torts (6 0)
