Before the season started, UNL basketball
coach Joe Cipriano would have said his team
would be strong on defense and have good depth
and rebounding in the front line, while guard
Jerry Fort would lead an offense that needed to
generate a consistant, high scoring attack.
A case in point was Saturday's 74-61 win over
Kansas State, as the Huskers opened their Big 8
schedule displaying an aggressive defense,
awesome rebounding and Jerry Fort's scoring,
although the Huskers added balanced scoring to
the effort.
"Thft key would have to be our defensive
effort," Cipriano said. "We forced them out of
their offense. You can't shoot outside all day, so
you have to go inside. Because of the constant
pressure of our defense.we were able to keep
them out."
Only weeks before, at the Big 8 tournament in
Kansas City, the Wildcats routed a weary Husker
squad 80-63. Leading the spree was the
combined 45 point scoring efforts of guards
Chuckie Williams and freshman Mike Evans. The
two once again combined for more than half of
the K-State points Saturday, scoring 20 and 14
points respectively.
Height handicaps
"They have two good guards," Fort said.
"Their offense was geared to the outside. They
also fast-break well, but they're not a very tall
team and our front line kept them off the boards
so they couldn't run."
The Huskers out-rebounded the Wildcats
41-26, while shooting 30 of 65 (46 per cent)
from the floor compared to K-Stste's 27 out of
60 (45 per cent).
Cipriano said the team showed signs of its 20
day lay-off, displaying cold shooting and making
some mental errors in the contest's first ten
"We didn't control the tempo of the game in
the first half," he said. "However, we came back
in the second half."
Unanswered points
Leading 30-28 at half time the Huskers
opened the game up mid-way in the second half
scoring 10 unanswered points to build 6349 lead
with 7:03 left.
Junior guard Steve Willis said the scoring spree
started when K-State broke down under the
defensive pressure. "They just quit hustling," he
Sophomore forward Bob Siegel had one of his
best first halves this season, Ciprianossaid. The 6
ft. 7 in. Fairbury native grabbed 13 rebounds and
scored eight points by halftime.
"Siegel has been coming around and came to
play today" Cipriano said. "He really kept us
alive -with his shooting, rebounding and defensive
effort in the first half."
Cipriano also expressed pleasure with the
effort of center Larry Cox and subsitute forward
Ricky Harris. Harris came off the bench in the
second half to score 11 points and three
rebounds. Siegel and Cox had 16 and 13 points
respectively while Fort had a game high 20
