Nebraska's basketball team scored 109
points Tuesday night in the Coliseum, but as
junior forward Fred Coker said, "it was a lot of
offense and no defense."
Realistically, the 109 points was a combined
total as the Whites defeated the Reds 56-53 in
Nebraska's annual Red-White intrasquad game.
Coker, who had 16 points and six rebounds
for th2 Reds, said we have a lot of work to do
on defense, but our offense if working out
"Our main problem is getting on the boards
and being more aggressive," he said. "But when
we become super aggressive we are going to
beat some good teams."
Head Basketball Coach Joe Cipriano said he
was concerned with the outcome of the game
because there were quite a few mistakes. "But
you almost have to expect that because we put
more pressure on the ball than the Yugoslavs
"Defensively inside we were fairly weak,"
Cipriano said. "But for freshmen (Mark)
Enright and (Ror) Taylor did a good qb on the
boards for us " Ennght had 11 rebounds for the
Whites ar.J Taylot had 12 rebounds for the
Leading secret s for the Whites were
sophomore guatd Ricky Marsh with 16 points,
freshman center Enright with 10 points and
fitshman forward Rickey Hairis with 7 points
and 1 1 rebound1:.
Leading scorers for the Reds were Taylor
with 18 points, and junior guard Kent
Reckewey with six point?.
Cipriano said that Nebraska is ready to play
Wyoming, their opponent Saturday in Lincoln
at 7:35 p.m., but thai he'd like to know more
of Wyoming's game plan.
"We haven't operated against a zone in a
game situation yet," hu said. "And I understand
thev have some lo jgh guards also."
Cipriano said the results of the intrasquad
game should help decide in a day or two who
his starting lineup will be against Wyoming.
