A peace treaty was signed in Paris Saturday.
But Missouri's basketball team declared war in
Lincoln as they bombed coach Joe Cipriano's
Missouri showed the crowd of 3,500 and a
regional television audience why they are
ranked seventh in the nation by the Associated
Press as they dominated the Huskers
throughout the game.
The Tigers combined a rugged defense with
balanced scoring, as they jumped to a 17-0 lead,
holding the Huskers scoreless during the first
six minutes of the game.
All five members of Missouri's starting team
scored before Don Jackson put Nebraska on the
scoreboard with a 10-foot jumper with 13:57
left in the first half.
Nebraska fans, who traditionally stand until
Nebraska scores its first point, not only
suffered through the six minute scoring lapse
but also had to endure a timeout for a
Missouri, led by all-American John Brown
and forward Al Eberhard, kept pressure on
Nebraska as the Tigers lunged to a 35-19
halftime lead. The Tigers shot .500 in the first
half while Nebraska managed only a .257
Cipriano said Nebraska's poor start
destroyed their play for the rest of the game.
"We got so worried about not scoring that
we forgot to play defense and ended up playing
poorly af both ends of the court," he said.
Nebraska finally got its offense cranked up
in the second half, pouring in 46 points after
intermission. That point total is the record for a
single half by the Huskers this season.
The Husker scoring surge was led by
sophomore Kent Reckeway and junior Brendy
Lee. Reckeway poured in 10 points while Lee
The final margin of 13 points is hardly an
accurate indication of the game as Coach Norm
Stewart's Missouri team usually led by more
than 20 points.
Eberhard led Missouri with 22 points while
Gary Link and Brown chipped in 15 and 13
Junior Lee Harris led Nebraska scorers with
12 points, followed by Reckeway and Tony
Riehl who both finished with 10.
Despite the discouraging loss, Cipriano said
he was pleased with Riehl's play. The 6-3 senior
replaced starter Ricky Marsh early in the first
half and played nearly the entire game.
"Tony showed signs of returning to the way
he was playing before being injured last year,"
The pressure won't let up on the Huskers as
they must travel to Ames, la., Tuesday to face a
tough Iowa State team.
Cipriano said he is considering changes in his
starting line-up for the game against Maury
"We have some people sitting on the bench
that think they can do a better job than our
starters," the Husker mentor said. "And the
way the starters performed against Missouri, I
think it's time .to give the others a chance."
Johnson 's debut
Wrestling for UNL was the furthest thing
from Rickey Johnson's mind when he enrolled
But Saturday night at the Coliseum he
helped Nebraska defeat the University of South
Dakota, 35-4 in a dual wrestling match.
Johnson had attended Milford Trade School
for two years and hadn't wrestled competitively
since he attended Lincoln High.
Husker wrestling coach Orval Borgialli
noticed Johnson in a physical education class
and asked him to join the UNL wrestling team
at 118- pounds. The 118-pound spot was
vacated when Gary HarniscrT recieved a knee
injury two weeks ago.
Johnson had only one day of practice before
his UNL mat debut but won his match 94 in
Saturday's meet. "He did a whale of a job,"
Borgialli said. "I was surprised he was in as
good shape as he was."
Dennis Finken, wrestling two classes above
his normal weight, pulled a big surprise in
winning his 177-pound match. Finken defeated
Erick Fiech, 7-1.
Monty Halstead, Dennis Girard, Cliff Myles
and Jeff Class also won decisions. Ralph
Manning and John Bell registered the only pins
in the match.
