NU football ticket lottery in progress
By Mike Kluck
Staff Reporter
Students who wish to purchase
1988 season football tickets will be
able to draw a lottery number March
28 through April 1, associate ticket
manager Joe Selig said.
Sclig said in order to draw a lottery
number, students must present a
completed application, cash, per
sonal check or money order and a
current full-time student ID at the
South Stadium Ticket Office from 9
a.m. to noon and from 1 u>4 p.m.The
price for a student ticket is $42, and
married students may purchase a
spouse ticket for SI 10.
Sclig said the athletic department
hopes to have a good distribution of
tickets throughout the week.
“My suggestion to students is to
come earlier in the week so they may
not have to wait in lines as long,”
Selig said. “In the past, many stu
dents and groups have wailed to
come in until Friday afternoon.”
Sclig said students will draw lot
tery numbers when they turn in their
application. He said lickctordcrs will
be filled from the largest lottery
number to the smallest.
“One person can bring in up to 100
students’ applications,” Sclig said.
“It is important for students to be
aware that all checks in the group
have to match the application or the
correct change needs to be attached.”
Ticket applications are available
at the South Stadium Ticket Office,
Administration Building 110 — Stu
dent Accounts and the East Union
information desk.
Sclig said he expects to fill 6,000
applications through the lottery proc
ess. He said any student who misses
the lottery deadline may apply for a
ticket through 4 p.m. Aug. 23.
This year’s Nebraska home
schedule includes games against
Utah State, Arizona State, Nevada
Las Vegas, Oklahoma State, Mis

Nee: Loss to ISU threefold;
little things become significant
By Mark Derowitsch
Senior Reporter
Three areas separated a win from
a loss in Saturday’s game against
Iowa State, Nebraska basketball
coach Danny Nee said Monday.
Nee said at his weekly press con
ference that Nebraska dropped an 85
84 decision to Iowa State because the
Com huskers were unable to concen
trate on “little things.”
“I think the players know when
they’re playing well or when they
haven’t,” Nee said. “There was just a
couple ot little things that became
Nee said the differences between
the Huskers and Iowa State were
free-throw shooting, rebounding and
offensive fouls.
The Huskers connected on 18 of
28 free throws, compared to Iowa
State’s 33 of 40. The Cyclones also
pulled down 14 offensive rebounds,
and Nebraska turned over the ball six
times because of offensive fouls.
“If there was a little more concen
tration — because those are funda
mental parts of the game, we did a lot
of things right,” Nee said. “Overall,
we did enough things to be successful
or to be in the game.”
Nee said one bright spot in
Saturday’s game was reserve center
Rich van Poclgecst. Van Poelgeest, a
6-foot-9 sophomore, scored a career
high 19 points and grabbed a team
high six rebounds in 19 minutes of
action. He hiteightof nine shots from
the field and three of five shots from
the free-throw line?
“I think it’s a great confidence
builder for van Poclgeest,” Nee said,
“and I think it shows he’s getting
better. I hope it’s a steppingstone.”
Nee said van Poclgeest has im
proved because he is being more
active on the court.
“ He ’ s real 1 y reac tin g more arou nd
the basket,” Nee said. “He’s making
some of those easy shots he missed
earlier in the year. But he’s active
rebounding and on defense.
“He’s pretty sound fundamen
tally. His footwork is solid, and he
has a basic understanding of the
But Nee said van Poclgeest hasn’t
always played well this season. He
said his practice habits have im
proved as well as his game.
“It reached a point where the other
big guys were playing better than he
was and he lost some playing time,”
Nee said. “He went into a slump and
he earned his way out of it. And this
is a result — all of a sudden, one
night, he puts it all together. It’s very
pleasing to me.”
Nee said the emergence of van
Poclgeest and the improvement of
freshman Rich King and junior Pete
Manning could open up the middle
for forward Derrick Vick.
Vick, a senior from Chicago,
averages 11.6 points per game.
“Any activity scoring inside will
help the rest of the team,” Nee said.
