DePaul, while it wasn't shooting
that much better (40 percent), used
a full-court press to force Illinois
State into quick shots and spent the
greater part of the half at the free
throw line. The Deacons were up 38
31 when the gun sounded, and, with
Corbin and freshman Dallas Com
egys dominating the boards in the
second half, coasted to the easy win
leading by as many as 19 twice.
'There are times when you see it
slipping away from you and you feel
very badly. But today DePaul just
fiat beat us," Redbird coach Bob
Donewald said.
"Our fouling was a direct result
from our being a step behind. Usu
ally, when you foul a lot, it's charac
teristic of being too far behind the
other player."
While the CBS cameras sent the
game out to a national television
audience, the still cameras focused
on Meyer. The 70-year-old Blue Dem-
on coach said Illinois State made a
game of it last time by outrebound
ing the Blue Demons.
"There was no way' they were
going to outrebound us today," he
said afterwards. It was the first time
in three straight NCAA appearan
ces that a DePaul team advanced
past the first game.
"I feel I've just been reprieved,"
Meyer said. "I cleaned out my locker
Friday, and I remember thinking
that it could be the last time. But, I
felt confident we could win this
game. Illinois State has a very good
team, but they just don't have the
talent we do. I kept throwing play
ers at them and they couldn't match
all those players."
Corbin was eight-for-eight at the
free throw line and six of nine from
the field. Comegys and point guard
Kenny Patterson also finished with
14 Doints each. Rickie Johnson had
14 points to lead Illinois State, which
finished at 23-8.

Xavier has won eight of its last nine games with
the one loss coming to Oral Roberts. The Musketeers
count wins over Marquette and Dayton on their
Besides having to play its second-straight game
on the road, Nebraka's biggest worry right now is the
status of forward Stan Cloudy. Cloudy went to the
floor with more than 12 minutes left in the first half
of Thursday's game with Creighton. Cloudy injury
has been diagnosed as a slight strain to the ligament
in his left knee.
Upsets in the NIT have been the rule rather than
the exception thus far. Pre-tourney favorites Geor
gia Tech and North Carolina State both fell Thurs
day as did Oregon and Wichita State.
