Nebraska knocked off in marathon volleyball match
By Ron Powell
It seemed more like a marathon than a volleyball tour
nament Saturday when second-iseeded Southwest Missouri
State knocked off top seeded Nebraska 15-7, 14-16
12-15, 15-11, 15-10 for the AIAW (Association of Inter'
collegiate Athletics for Women) Region VI championship
and a berth in the AIAW national meet in Carbondale, 111.
It took two matches and nearly four hours for the
Bears to defeat the Huskers in the double-elimination
tournament which saw Nebraska battle their way through
the losers' bracket and fall just short in their comeback
The Huskers had defeated Kansas 15-11, 18-16, 15-6
Iowa State . . .

Despite the number of offensive stars, the game ball
went to defensive line coach Charlie McBride. But it took
some laboring to do it.
Defensive tackle Rod Horm explained. '"Dan Pensick
and I and a couple of others decided if they (the co
captains) weren't going to give Coach McBride the game
ball, we were going to grab one. On the way off the field,
Dan was looking for one and I grabbed one, but it was an
Iowa State ball, so I threw it back. But we got the cap
tains to give him one."
Horn had special praise for McBride.
"He knows any offense back and forth. Every week he

Bill Cosby tells
why Red Cross needs
ytnr type of blood.
"Every day of the week,
there's somebody who needs
your type of blood.
"But the thing about blood
is: it doesn't keep very long.
Which means we've got to '
keep the supply coming con
stantly. Donors are needed

"In fact, five people out of
every KX) are doing the whole

job. That's right, five percent
of the people give 100 percent
of the blood that's donated.
"If you're between 17 and
66. and generally healthy, you
can help change all that. And
your one blood donation can
help up tofive people to live.

winners' bracket before losing in the winners bracket
finals to Southwest Missouri State 15-12, 11-15, 15-10
15-10 Friday night.
Saturday the Huskers defeated Minnesota in a losers
bracket match 15-2, 10-15, 15-11, 15-12 to advance into
the finals against the Bears. Nebraska then forced the
second match by beating the Bears 5-15, 15-9, 15-10,
UNL volleyball coach Terry Pettit said he wasn't dis
appointed with his team's performance.
"I think we played well,' Pettit said. "We dug our
selves a hole when we lost Friday night and just fell a little
short trying to come back."
"I don't feci bad. If they (our players) had any less
gives us all these handouts with the other team's ten
dencies. They've got everything ask ! on them. He just
goes out of his way to make us be 1 1 o r players."
For the defense, it was another sterling performance.
The Blackshirts allowed only 29 yards rushing in 28 Cy
clone attempts, and just 127 yards overall.
THE ONLY BLEMISH was Alex Giffords' 22-yard
field goal with 1 :37 left in the game, the first points Ne
brask has given up in the fourth quarter this season.
The defense will see something this weekend they
haven't seen all year-the wishbone.
"Sure it gives us some problems" Osborne said. "It
only gives us five days to get ready for it. But we'll be all
Osborne made sure the Huskers will get five days of
practice to prepare for the wishbone by vetoing an ABC
TV request to move the game to Friday.
In spite of the pressures that go along with an unde
feated season most players said they looked for a loose
week of practice. ,
Horn said, "I'm sure the coaches will try to keep it
pretty loose. Shoot, we've been here long enough, we
know what's going on. We've got better overall personnel
at each position than Oklahoma, plus our depth, so we're
in good shape."

Pettit said the fact that the Huskers had to play one
more match than the Bears Saturday may have caused
some mental fatigue for his team down the stretch, but he
had compliments for the champions.
"They're a very good team," Pettit said. "You play
jvell in the pressure when you play good defense like they
"do and that will help them in nationals. They will repre
sent the region well."
Two Huskers, sophomore Terri Kanouse and senior
Nancy Grant were named to the all-tournament team.
"Terri pretty much dominated the tournament," Pettit
said. "It didn't matter if the set was good or bad during
the tournament, she put it away. She's a tremendous
player." , v
1 The Huskers, now 41-8-3, are through for the season
unless they receive one of the three at-large bids given for
the national meet. Pettit said he didn't know the chances
of the Huskers receiving ah at-large bid. ,
Even if the Huskers do not get an at-large berth, Pettit
said this team is still the best he's coached at Nebraska.
"I don't think any team less than this one could have
done what was done today," Pettit said.
