Newcomers play big for Buffs
By David Wilson
BOULDER, Colo. — Led by the
excellent play of junior forward
Martice Moore and freshman guard
Chauncey Billups, the Colorado bas
ketball team broke out of a four-game
losing streak Wednesday night to de
Colorado coach Ricardo Patton
said he thought his players, who
trailed the Comhuskers 36-30 at half
time, did not play as a team in the first
“We played selfish in the first half,”
Patton said. “I mentally challenged the
guys at halftime. No one on the team
f is good enough to beat teams individu
ally. Everybody is a part of this team.”
Moore, who scored 19 of his game
high 30 points in the second half, said
the Buffaloes didn’t pass the ball well
enough in the first half. The transfer
from Georgia Tech was one point shy
of his career high, set in Colorado’s
overtime win against George Mason
“Everybody wanted to do so much
to make the win happen, we weren’t
thinking as a team,” Moore said. “In a
game like this, you know that the other
team is going to run.
“They got stiff in the second half
and their three premier shooters were
a little off today.”
Billups, who scored 11 of his 21
points in the second half, said he was
glad the Buffs were no longer in sole
possession of the Big Eight cellar.
Colorado, which improved its record
to 9-16 overall and 3-10 in the Big
Eight, is now tied with Nebraska for
last place in the conference.
“I thought it would be a tragedy for
them to beat us in our last game at
home,” Billups said.
Despite leading the Buffaloes in
scoring at 18.6 points per game,
Billups said he arrived at the Coors
Event Center early Wednesday to
shoot around in hopes of breaking out
of a slump.
In Colorado’s previous two games
against Oklahoma and Oklahoma
State, Billups scored only six points
in 68 minutes and was 0 for 8 in 3
point attempts. But less than two min
utes into Wednesday night’s game, the
freshman star broke the ice by putting
Colorado ahead 5-2 with a 3-point
Colorado will travel to Iowa State

Big Eight Tournament a tossup
By Jason Brunz

The Big Eight’s women’s basket
ball coaches don’t always agree, but
they do concede that this weekend’s
league tournament will be a fight to

urday, will be played at the Bicenten

The Big Eight is solid from top to
bottom, the league coaches say, and
it’s difficult to predict a champion this
Oklahoma coach Burl Plunkett said
every Big Eight game had a chance to
end with a surprise.
“Every team in the Big Eight is re

never tell who is going to win the ball
Oklahoma, the seventh seed in the
tournament, will face second-seeded
Colorado at 6 p.m. Saturday.
Iowa State coach Bill Fcnnelly,
whose sixth-seeded Cyclones will
play Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Satur
day, said the overall intensity of teams
made the conference solid.
“You have to go out and beat some
body,” Fcnnelly said. “They’re not
going to beat themselves.”
Nebraska, the fourth seed, will play
Missouri at noon Saturday.
Tiger coach Joann Rutherford said
Nebraska was a quality team. Mis
souri , which has lost 12 straight games
to Nebraska, needed momentum to
beat the Comhuskers, Rutherford said.
“They’re a good team” she said.
“We can’t just key on one person.”
Possibly the most unusual first
round matchup will be the contest be
tween Kansas and Kansas State.
Several Wildcat athletes wdre ruled
ineligible earlier this week because of
a violation of NCAA rules.
Kansas State, now the eighth seed,
was forced to forfeit its 11 victories
before Feb. 9.
Oklahoma, which will play Colo

She said it would be difficult to beat
any team three times in a row, let alone
a club of Kansas State’s quality. The
Wildcats were 14-15 before its team
members were ruled ineligible. The
two teams will play in the
tournament’s second game at 2 p.m.
Colorado coach Ceal Barry, whose
Buffaloes are the defending tourna
ment champions, may be the the most
excited coach of all.
“It’s going to be a great tourna
ment,” Barry said. “I’d go out and buy
a ticket if I weren’t participating.”

the chance to correct her errors this
weekend. Nebraska will travel to San

State, Sacramento State and Cal-State
Stafford’s parents will see her play
for the first time this season.
“I’m just excited,” she said. “My
parents see me play once a year.”
Stafford’s parents will see most of
the same players they saw last season,
but it’s a team with a new approach to
the game, she said.
“This team is basically the same
team as last year,” Stafford said. “Yet
it’s a whole new team. We are just a
whole lot stronger mentally.”
That same core of players, which
led the Huskers to a 43-20 record and
an NCAA Regional appearance last
year, causes Stafford to believe the
Huskers can go even further this sea
