A squad ot husky basket bull play
ers from the University ot Nebraska
floated Into town Tuesday and lingered
hero a. sufficiently long tlmo to clean up
tho Mageo & Decmcr team of this city, by
Iho overwhelming score ot 40 to 15. Tho
collegians wero too fast for tho local
men, who aro nil cx-unlverslty players,
and their superior dribbling and basket
shooting brooked no opposition.
During tho first half, when Nebraska
had a flock of substitutes In tho game, the
clothiers put UP a pretty stiff argument
and held tho invaders to a bare thirteen
points, while they themselves amassed
eleven. But constant training, & vlrtuo
not practiced by the Magco & Scanners,
told as tho battle prolonged, and when
tho second half was well Under way and
that incomparable dud, Haskell and Ruth
erford, started to plunge down the floor
and place tho ball neatly in tho basket,
the local men, tired and worn out, wcro
swept off tbclr feet and the score ran up
to the high total.
Star ProTO Superiority,
Haskell and Rutherford during their
brief time In tho, contest, manifested their
absolute superiority over tho other play
ers: on the floor. 'Haskell managed to cop
two field goals, while Rutherford -roped
one In, Hancllk and Flnley secured the
long end ot the scoring. Koch made five
field goals. They were In the greater
part of the gome, however, and had more
opportunities than their colleagues.
Hawkins played n superior game at guard
while Howard; tho Omaha boy, played a
good game considering that ho was guard
ing Obi Meyer, who is a very husky In
dividual, Jones and Amberson were the bright
stars of tho local squad. Jcnes played
a guarding gamo that mado the Corn
huskers put on on, extra burst of speed
every time he connected, with the ball.
Roth Jones and Amberson aro excep
tionally light, but tho way they clung
to the rangy Cornhuskers was a credit to
any guard. Jones also slipped in three
field goals, Just to show that ho could
