Page 28 The Salina Journal - Sunday, November a, ittl Nealy scores 28 Cats win opener, 86-50 By TIM HOSTETTER Journal Correspondent MANHATTAN — A typical first game. That was the general feeling of Kansas State basketball coach Jack Hartman after he watched his team rout Northern Iowa in the season opener Saturday night, 86-50, in Ahearn Fieldhouse. "Overall, I was pleased with the team's play for a first game," said Hartman. "We did get out of rhythm at times but we did get some good breaks." Most of those good breaks came in a 49-point second half. After managing a 37-28 halftime lead, the Wildcats came out smoking at the onset of the second half, outscoring the Panthers, 19-9, in the first 9M; minutes to put the game out of reach. - That spurt was highlighted by senior forward Ed Nealy, who had 10 of those points, including a breakaway stuff shot off his own steal. Nealy was near- perfect for the night, hitting ll-of-12 field goal attempts and 6-of-6 free throws for a career-high 28 points. "I was not aware Ed had that many points," said Hartman. "He gets so many points that you don't realize he's getting when you watch the game. His rebounding gets him so many points in close." Nealy, who grabbed nine rebounds in 29 minutes of action, was not that surprised with his output. "I thought I had about 24 points at the end of the game, but everything was going good tonight," he said. "I Ed Nealy felt good shooting." The rest of the second half was entirely K-State as the Wildcats used aggressive defense and some hot shooting to outscore Northern Iowa, 30-13. "I thought we loosened up quite a bit in the second half," said Hartman. "Our defense was more active and forced more turnovers. At halftime, we talked about getting more control in the second half." Tyrone Adams proved to be the ringleader of that inspired defense that forced 14 Panther turnovers. The 6-5 senior made seven steals in addition to scoring 16 points and dishing out six assists. "Tyrone was really a leader on defense tonight," Hartman said. "For us to be a good defensive team this year, he is going to have to continue playing like that." The Wildcats shot 60 percent from the field (18-of-30) in the second half and 54 percent for the game, while Northern Iowa shot only 33 percent. K- State was also hot from the line, hitting 22-of-27. K-State, which won its sixth straight opener, played in spurts in the first half. The Wildcats put the crowd on its feet early by scoring nine unanswered points to start the game. The Panthers, however, kept their composure and countered with sixth straight points of their own to bring the Wildcats back to earth. They were down only 17-16 midway through the half, but the Wildcats built their halftime lead to nine points. "I think we tried to force too many passes and shots in the first half and that kept Northern Iowa in the game," Hartman said. Mike Pijanowski was the lone Panther in double figures with 17 before fouling out late in the game.

White suffers cracked rib DALLAS (UPI) — Dallas quarterback Danny White, who was thought to have received only a bad bruise on his back when smashed to the ground during the second quarter of the Cowboys' 10-9 Thanksgiving Day victory over Chicago, actually suffered a cracked rib. A preliminary examination by doctors during the game did not reveal any break, but further x-rays revealed the slight crack in an upper rib on White's right side. North Carolina downs stubborn Jayhawks, 74-67 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (UPI) Junior forward James Worthy scored 23 points and ignited a second half rally Saturday to lead top- ranked North Carolina to a 74-67 victory over Kansas in a season opener for both teams. North Carolina came out sluggish and trailed most of the first half, but an 8-0 scoring blitz put the Tar Heels ahead 55-47 with 13:05 to play and kept Kansas out of the rest of the game. Worthy, who scored 12 of his points in the second half, was joined in double figures by center Sam Perkins with 16 and guards Matt Doherty and Mike Jordan with 12 points each. The Jayhawks were led by David Magley with 24 points, 16 in the second half, and Tony Guy with 18. The nation's No. 1 team trailed by as many as five points in the first half when they encountered difficulty getting the ball inside to Worthy and Perkins, the team's leading scorers from last year. Guy, who had 12 first half points, hit a pair of free throws with 7:37 left in the first half to put the Jayhawks ahead 26-21. North Carolina tied it up 27-27 on two consecutive baskets from Worthy and went into the lockerroom at halftime with the score 37-37. In the second half, Doherty put the Tar Heels ahead for good with 15:02 to play when he came up with a three- point play that made it 48-47. Guard Jimmy Black added a 10-foot jumper, Doherty hit a free throw and Worthy added two more baskets to put North Carolina ahead 55-47. The Jayhawks mounted one last challenge when Magley scored two unanswered baskets with just under three minutes to play, cutting the North Carolina lead to four points, 67-63. The Tar Heels quickly went ahead by eight points on a slam dunk by Worthy and a pair of Jordan free throws with about a minute to play, then went to its delay game to close the door.

KW falls, 69-49 LINCOLN, Neb. - Although Kansas Wesleyan played what coach Bill Stevens called one of the best halfs of basketball he's seen in a long time, the Coyotes were defeated here Saturday by Nebraska Wesleyan in a non-conference game, 69-49. "Our kids started off real well and played with a lot of intensity," Stevens said. "We had the same intensity in the second half but we had about a two or three-minute spurt where we made some mistakes and they took advantage." The Coyotes led at the half, 28-27, but Nebraska Wesleyan gained control of the boards and went on to push its record to 2-2. "They're real strong on the boards," Stevens said. "They've got some giants." Greg Peterson led all scorers for Nebraska Wesleyan with 20 points. Jeff McCall paced the Coyotes with 17 points, while Tim Campbell added 11 and Brad Bingesser tossed in 10. The Coyotes are now 0-3 and will travel to Winfield on Wednesday to take on Southwestern.
