The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 15,1986 Page 18 Big Eight schedule begins for Kansas/ Kansas State By HAROLD BECHARD Sports Editor With the preliminaries, for the most part, out of the way, Kansas and Kansas State open Big Eight Conference basketball action tonight. Kansas, ranked eighth in the Associated Press poll with a 14-2 record, travels to Lincoln, Neb., for a 7:35 p.m. game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Kansas State, the surprise team in the conference with a 12-3 mark, opens Big Eight play at home against 'the Iowa State Cyclones in a 7:35 contest at Ahearn Field House. Kansas was picked in the preseason as the team to beat in the Big Eight, and Nebraska head coach Moe Iba said nothing the Jayhawks have done in the first 16 games of the season has changed his mind "We mignt pray a lot," Iba said when asked about opening conference play against Kansas. "They're as good a basketball team as I've seen. We have to play them sometime. The main thing is to convince our players we can beat them." Nebraska enters tonight's game with a 10-3 mark and boasts possibly the top player in the league in 6-11 senior center Dave Hoppen. Hoppen, the No. 4 scorer in Big Eight history, is averaging 21.7 points and 7.4 rebounds a game. Kansas has produced a balanced lineup all season with four players — Ron Kellogg (15.9), Danny Manning (14.7), Calvin Thompson (14.7) and Greg Dreiling (ll.l) — scoring in twin digits. Kansas State is off to its best start in four years and the Wildcats are hoping a victory over Iowa State will be a springboard to at least a first- division finish in the conference. "I think we are a little further along now than I thought we would be, not in terms of wins and losses, but in terms of development," KSU head coach Jack Hartman said. Norris Coleman and Big Eight Player-of-the-Week Joe Wright continue to lead the Wildcats in scoring with averages of 19.3 and 17.9 points per game, respectively. Iowa State got a head start on the rest of the conference last Saturday afternoon when the Cyclones posted a 92-84 victory over Missouri at home. The Cyclones, 10-4 overall, are paced by sophomore Jeff Grayer (20.8 points per game) and senior guard Jeff Hornacek( 15.2). NCAA adopts drug-testing NEW ORLEANS (AP) - NCAA schools said yes to drug-testing and no to a ban on letting boosters recruit on campus Tuesday as the association's 80th annual convention ended one day early. The measure on drug-testing was virtually unopposed by the nearly 1,800 delegates. Athletes who test positive on a long list of "street drugs," as well as performance-enhancing substances, will lose their eligibility for a minimum of 90 days. The tests will be done at football bowl games and NCAA champion- ships and could involve penalties for coaches who have knowledge of drug use but do not report it. The anti-drug list includes such street drugs as marijuana, cocaine and heroin and includes anabolic steroids and caffeine. Last year's convention rejected a drug-testing proposal because it did not include street drugs. Withdrawn and certain to reappear at next year's convention was a proposoal to give athletes five years of eligiblity instead of the traditional four.

Wesleyan suffered an 80-65 whipping Monday night at Sterling to fall to 5-1 in the KCAC and 9-2 overall. The Coyotes are now tied with Bethany and Tabor for the top spot. Ottawa is in the conference basement with an 0-5 mark. The Braves, 2-9 overall, feature one of the top players in the league in Rob Noel. The 6-5 senior averages 19.6 points a game. Southeast girls run past SHHS By TIM HOSTETTER Sports Writer Sacred Heart's girls were fortunate to be trailing Southeast of Saline by just three points at half time Tuesday night. Southeast's pressure defense forced 16 Sacred Heart turnovers over the first two quarters, but the Knights stayed close with 8-of-18 shooting. The Knights were unable to maintain that kind of shooting in the second half, however, and didn't improve their ball-handling. Consequently, the Trojans turned a 23-20 halftime lead into an easy 46-31 victory at the SHHS gym. The win evened Southeast's North Central Activities Association record at 2-2 and improved its overall record to 5-3. Sacred Heart slipped to 2-2 in league play and 2-5 overall. "We didn't have enough patience against their pressure defense," said Sacred Heart coach John Laird. "Our passing was sloppy and our shots just didn't fall in the second half." The Knights hit only 4 of 21 second- half shots and finished with 12-of-39 shooting for 31 percent. Southeast was much better from the field, hitting 20 of 62 shots, but the Trojans turned the ball over just 12 times and obviously got many more shots at the basket. "We really hustled on defense tonight," said Trojan coach Jim Campion. "They hung with us the first half, but I think we wore them down in the second half. We did a good job of running tonight." A key in the game for Southeast was keeping the ball away from Sacred Heart's inside combo of Renee Bellerive and Terry Cook. Bellerive did grab a game-high 15 rebounds, but had just nine points on 3-of-ll shooting. Cook had just four points. "We have to do a better job of getting the ball inside to those two," Laird said. "We didn't do that tonight." Senior Laura Riblett led the Trojans with 13 points. Gretchen Koesler added 10. Sacred Heart led 12-10 after the first quarter, but quickly lost that lead when it turned the ball over the first six times it had the ball in the second quarter.

Wesleyan is led by seniors David Frederick (14.5 points a game) and Russ Pleiman (13 points, 9 rebounds). The Coyotes learned Monday that senior point-guard Gary Upsahw has been lost for the year with a knee injury. Upshaw, who started the first four games this season, was injured last week and underwent a four-hour surgery on Monday. The Wesleyan women will be out to break a two-game losing streak in the 6 p.m. game. The Coyotes are tied for second in the KCAC with a 4-2 mark and are 7-2 overall. Ottawa is 0-5 and 2-9.
