Nebraska's Anthony Bailous keeps a close guard on Oregon's Jesse Nash during first half
action last night against Oregon.
By Jim Ballard and
For the first eight minutes of
Nebraska's basketball game against
Oregon last night, the snow-filled
streets of Lincoln weren't the only
sloppy things in town.
Unlike the streets of Lincoln, though,
t he Cornhuskers improved as the night
wore on, shooting down the Ducks TO

Nebraska connected on only three of
their first nine shots to start the game,
while falling behind the Ducks 8-6.
Nebraska coach Danny Nee said that
both teams were "tight" at the begin
ning of the game.
"I don't know if it was nerves,
tightness or just sloppy play," Nee said.
"The first few minutes were very
Nebraska tied the game at 12-12
with 1 1:49 remaining in the first half on
a three-point juniper by guard Joel
Sealer, then took the lead 1 12 minutes
later when forward Anthony Bailous hit
a 17-foot jumper to make the score 16
14. Nebraska never lost , their lead
Bailous, who scored 1 4 points on the
night and pulled down six rebounds,
said Nebraska needed some time to get
their offense going.
"We were just feeling each other out
at the beginning," Bailous said, "but
once we settled down, we got our
offense and fast break going."
Nebraska maintained their lead by
as much as seven points throughout
most of the first half. Oregon cut the
Huskers' lead to two, 30-28, with 3:35
left in the first half on a three-point
play by guard David Girley. The Huskers
answered with a basket by forward
Bernard Day, and the game remained a
two-point contest until Husker forward
Bill Jackman connected on a three
point jumper with 2:07 left before
halftime, giving Nebraska a 37-32 lead.

and again when Day was fouled while
driving to the hoop. The basket and
ensuing free throw were good, giving
the Huskers a 43-34 lead at halftime.
Nebraska shot 57 percent from the
field during the first half and pulled
down 12 rebounds, compared to Ore
The Ducks shot 50 percent from the
field in the first period.
Fifty-three seconds into the second
half, Carr lost his balance when he was
fouled during a layup and hit his
forehead on the playing surface. Nee
said Carr's injury wasn't a concussion,
but the impact caused a mi gran e head
ache and temporary loss of vision.
Oregon cut Nebraska's lead to one,
50-49, with 12:38 left, but the Huskers
answered with a Derrick Vick basket
with 12:15 left in the game. That was as
close as Oregon would come for the rest
of the cont est, as Nebraska coasted to
the final 18-point win margin.
"We got about what we deserved,"
Oregon coach Don Monson said. "We
were about a half a count slow on
getting the ball where it needed to be
