(Huskers beat Ga. St in overtime;
Cipriano pleased with inside play
By Bill Bennett
It took Nebraska's basketball team 45
minutes to do it, but it finally defeated the
Georgia State Panthers in overtime 78-75
Tuesday night in the Coliseum.
Nebraska trailed at the half 36-33 but
with 5:01 left in the game, Rickey Harris
scored giving the Huskers a 6059 lead.
However, with the score tied at 69 all and
only :27 left in the game, Nebraska's
attempt for a final score failed and the game
was forced into overtime.
Harris lead the Huskers in the overtime
with four points and one blocked shot. For
the entire game, he had 11 points and nine
"Rickey did a good job for us tonight,"
Head Basketball Coach Joe Cipriano said.
"He's been working hard in practices and
seems to be coming along real well."
"We may have underestimated this team,
just like Minnesota (Duluth)," Cipriano said.
"But we played pretty well in the second
half coming back from being six down."
Cipriano said Nebraska's inside play won
the game for the Huskers. "In the second
half we were going to (Ron) Taylor,
(Brendy) Lee and Harris," he said. "And
that's what broke their backs."
Besides Harris, other leading performers
for Nebraska were Taylor with 19 points and
eight rebounds and Ricky Marsh with 14
Marsh said in the first half the Panthers
were hurting the Huskers with their zone
defense. "In the first half they were
rebounding better than we were," Marsh
said. "But in the second half we were
working together, getting the ball inside and

Rickey Harris (30) battles for a rebound
Ever since the introduction of the
platoon system in football well over a
decade ago, football has been a game
comprised of specialists. Recently there
has been a movement for change by many
who believe the game now lacks fan
In truth, it is no more boring than it
ever was. It is probably suffering from
something far worse, that nearly
incurable disease known as overexposure.
I feel that I'm no different than
most with the NFL, the colleges, the
Canadian League and the bowls, by the
time December is over, I've had it with
The fact of the matter is, most NFL
teams are embarrassingly
stereotyped running basically the same
plays in much the same manner as nearly
every other team.
Two changes that would greatly
enhance fan appeal for the antiquated pro
game are moving the kickoff spot five or
10 yards back from the 40 yard line and
giving teams the option of kicking for one
extra point or running or passing for two.
Field goal criticism is unjust because
longer and more accurate kickers hove
added to the game's efficiency.
Instead of decreasing the value of the
field goal, the value should be increased
the closer the team gets to the end zone.
Why not reward team play?
Why should a team that can move a
ball to its opponent's 10-yard line before
being stopped be rewarded with the same
amount of points as a team stopped at
the 40-yard line, but which has a good
field goal kicker?
