third-ranking all-time scorer with 1,235
points, needs 31 to tie Stuart Lantz for
second place and 58 to tie Tom Baack for
the scoring lead. Jura's 531 points this

rebounding with 295. Jura grabbed 12
rebounds against Iowa State Monday night
to break the Nebraska single season rebound
tecord set by Leroy Chalk last year.

Eight, seeks to -reverse a three-game losing
streak in the 7:35 p.m. Saturday game and
hand the Wildcats their third conference
setback this season. The last Kansas State
loss was to the Huskers Feb. 1.
"We played well last year (losing 70-69)
and we usually seem to play them well
there," Nebraska Coach Joe Cipriano said. "I
would think our losing streak would be
enough of an incentive for us to play well.
Sure they're closing at home knowing
they're champions, but I hope we're ready
