The Big Eight basketball
tournament is one activity that
may be missing from the
Christmas season in' a few
years, says Joe Cipriano, head
basketball coach at the- Uni
versity of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Big Eight officials have been
studying the possibility of
moving the tournament from
Dec. 26 through Dec. 30, as it
now exists, until after league
games end in early March.
Currently the tournament has
no effect upon league standings,
but as a post-season tourna
ment it would determine the
conference champion.
: ; ASK cost ;

University of Nebraska stu
dents can expect reduced rates
, this fall for membership in the
Associated Student Ko-op
(ASK), said Dennis Martin,
Ko-op manager.
The cost for a membership
card will be $3, a reduction of
$2 from last year's price. The
card entitles the holder to
discounts at 49 Lincoln business
firms. The discount is deter
mined by the business.
The benefits, Martin said,
arc two-fold. . The . student
receives discount prices, and
the business receives free
Martin said he would like to
see the Ko-op expanded to
include a school supply store.
But at the present, he said, this
is economically: Impossible, lie"
estimated it would take $15,000
$20,000 to start such a store.
All of the Ko-op's current
funds go to advertising, pay
ment of outstanding debts and
salaries to people selling cards.
ASK still owes ASUN $1,200,
Martin said.
Last year 650 cards were
sold. Martin said he hopes to
increase that number with a
larger advertising campaign
and with more salespeople
knocking on doors in the living
One problem is that students
don't use their cards enough,
Martin commented.
"They put the cards in their
wallets and never take them
out "again," he said.
Martin said he believes more
student involvement would
expand the Ko-op's activities.
The idea of a store is by no
means an idle dream, he said.
Students interested in buy
ing an ASK card or in selling
cards should contact the ASUN
office in the Nebraska Union.

having the (conference) winner
determined by a few games,"
said Cipriano.
"But if a feasible plan could
be worked out to determine the
winner.. I would favor the
post-season tournament."
Cipriano said he was not
familiar with all of the
proposals regarding the tourna
ment. Making the tournament
longer by adding a few games,
he said, might be one equitable
solution. 1
"Right now a few teams
dominate the league and this
might give some other teams a
chance to knock them off," he
said. "It certainly would give us
a chance."
The post-season tournament
would help generate basketball
interest during the season, he
said. Two disadvantages of the
current tournament, he said,
are that it conflicts with
Christmas and with football '
bowl games. .
"Playing in Kansas City will
still be the key to the success
for the Big Eight post-season

Cipriano said the post-season
tournament would be finan
cially good for the league and it
would probably help national
exposure for the Big Eight.
