Friday in a dual match at Henzlik Hall. Nebraska scored 156.30 points to the
Track coach Frank Seviane's Nehraska inHnnr
broke the University of Wisconsin's seven-year home win
streak Saturday, racing by the Badgers 76-12 to 54-12.
The Huskers broke three Nebraska school records and
tied another en route to winning 10 of 14 individual events.
Seven of Sevigne's thinclads also posted times which
qualified them for the NCAA indoor championships to be
held in Detroit March 9 and 10.
Leading the record-smashing performances for the
Cornhuskers was Lynn Hall. He broke the mile record set
by Greg Carlberg in 1969 with a 4:06.3 time.
Jim Hawkins set a new 1,000-yeard run record. He was
clocked in 2:10.5, besting the record set in 1966 by Peter
Bob Unger broke his own two-mile mark which he set
last week at the Michigan State relays.Unger finished with a
8:47.6 time. Teammate Hall finished second with 8:48.9.
Dan Moran's 880-yard run record set in 1970 was tied
by Roger Chadwick who finished with an identical 1:52.8
The record performances qualified all four Huskers for
the NCAA championships. Hall's strong second place finish
in the two-mile was good enough to qualify him in that
even as well as the mile.
Karl Webb and Leighton Priestly also qualified for the
NCAA meet. Webb won the 60-yard dash in :06.2 and
Priestly sped to a winning :48.9 time in the 440-yard run.
Ron Childs won the long jump for Nebraska with a leap
of 24-5, but missed the NCAA qualifying mark by one inch.
Cagers topple, 6 7-59
by Dave Settler
NORMAN, OKLA.-Oklahoma used a stiff second half
defense and rugged rebounding Saturday to defeat a
hot-shooting Nebraska team 67-59 in a Big Eight Conference
contest at Norman.
The Sooners changed to a zone defense in the second half
in an attempt to stop a Nebraska offense that hit 50 per cent
of its field goals. The maneuver worked, as Nebraska made
only 10 shots from the floor and suffered numerous turnovers
Trailing 37-33 at the half, Nebraska rallied for a brief 33-37
lead on a Lee Harris free throw. Oklahoma quickly regained
the lead and stretched it to 5647 with 7:07 left in the same.
Coach Joe Cipriano's Huskers frantically rallied, cutting the
Sooner's margin to three points with 3:25 left to play. During
that surge, Harris, Jerry Fort, Brendy Lee and Tony Riehl all
hit layups for the Huskers to cut the Oklahoma lead to 58-55.
The lead remained at three points until Coach John
MacLeod's Sooners made five straight points while holding the
Huskers scoreless until the end of the game.s,
Center Ted Evans and forward Tom Holland damaged
Nebraska with strong rebounding. Evans, substituting for
injured Oklahoma star Alvin Adams, grabbed nine rebounds
while Holland hauled in the game high of 13.
Holland and Russell Burks shared scoring honors for
Oklahoma with 12 points each. Oklahoma's win brought its
season record to 15-7, 5-5 in the conference.
Fort was Nebraska's high scorer with 24 points. Harris
finished with 13 points and seven rebounds and Riehl added
The Huskers will try to improve their record, which fell to
2-6 in the conference and 7-13 overall, when they meet the
Oklahoma State Cowboys tonight in Stillwater.
Cipriano is expected to start Fort and Riehl as guards and
Don Jackson and Harris as forwards. Steve Erwin or Lee will
fill the other starting slot.
Coach Sam Aubrey's Cowboys will try to rebound from a
75-66 loss Saturday night to Kansas. That loss pushed them
deeper into the conference cellar with a 1-7 record.
Aubrey probably will go with the same line up that has
resulted in Nebraska losses twice this season, the Cowpokes
edged Nebraska 75-73 in the Kansas City Big Eight
tournament and whipped the Cornhuskers 68-65 in Lincoln.
Tipoff is 7:30 p.m. The game will be carried by radio
stations KFOR and KFAB.
