19, PAGE 11 By DON FORSYTHE -Although Nebraska football coach Bob Devaney made it a point to officially designate Tuesday as "lhack to earth" day for his national championship team, Monday night was another walk on the clouds for the Cornhuskers. The No. 1-rated Cornhuskers were honored, collectively and individually, at the annual Football Awards Banquet, held this year at Pershing Auditorium to accommodate nearly 2,000 fans who made it the 'biggest awards ceremony ever staged for a Nebraska team. "This is one of the few times in my life I can't think of anything funny to say," admitted Devaney. So the perennial "coach of the year" in Cornhusker country played it straight.

"I've been associated with cham- test. NWU again chipped away at the lead getting as close as 86-82 with 1:48 left before the Bulldogs iced the victory, hitting five of seven free throws. "The fact that we (Concordia) kept coming back when they got close is why I'm so proud of them," Baden said. Baden also heaped praise on his club's defensive effort. "We knew we had to do a great defensive job," he said.

He gave credit to Steve Schrader for doing a "magificent job" of stopping Brown, NWU's leading scorer. "We told him to keep Brown from the ball as much as possible," -Baden explained. The Plainsmen senior finished with 16 points. Wesleyan's record dropped to 4-6 overall and 0-2 in the Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Concordia is now.1-4 in the NIAC.

"I can't explain it," NWU coach Irv Peterson said. "We just didn't win." Cornhusker trophy case. "All you have to do to keep the big one is win it two more times," he said. The individual honors were claimed by seniors Guy Ingles, Jerry Murtaugh, Dan Schneiss and Ed Periard. Ingles was recipient of the Guy Chamberlin Trophy, awarded annually to the senior displaying the qualities and dedication of ChamberJin to the Cornhusker tradition.

One of the smallest starters in major college football, Ingles finished his Cornhusker career as the all-time Nebraska receiving leader. The Omaha senior also received the Lincoln Optimists Clubs' award as the outstanding senior offensive lineman. Schneiss was named the outstanding senior offensive back, Periard the outstanding senior defensive lineman and Murtaugh the outstanding senior defensive back by the Optimists. Co-captains Murtaugh and Schniess accepted Admiralships in the Great Johnson noted that he had been upstaged a few days earlier by President Nixon and that he feared being upstaged again when he came to Lincoln. "After some of the remarks after the bowl games I wouldn't have been at all surprised to see the Pope here to make a presentation," he said.

In addition to the huge traveling trophy Johnson presented Devaney with a permanent plaque for the Kansas, Colorado Triumph Kansas City Fifth-ranked Kansas opened its race for the Big Eight Conference basketball flag Monday night with an easy 83-57 conquest of Iowa Staite at Lawrence. Colorado stood off a late Oklahoma State charge and edged the Cowboys 62-59 at Stillwater. The versatile Kansas attack was carried by Bud Stallworth through the first half, and Dave Robisch picked up the tempo in the second half, while Aubrey Nash added an unexpected bonus. Robisch finished with 21 points, tying Gene Mack of Iowa State for top honors. Stallworth hit seven of eight field shots in the first half and finished with 19 points.

Nash, who entered the game with a 4.4 point average, canned 14 by sinking seven of 13 floor shots. The Jayhawks shot 50 per cent from the field, Iowa State 33 per cent. Kansas, which jumped from eighth to fifth in the national rankings, has a 12-1 record. Iowa State is 4-12 for the season and 1-3 in the league. Colorado had a fat 60-51 lead with 4:30 to go, but Oklahoma State battled to within 61-59 as Tony Kraus hit two free throws with 20 seconds to go.

Colorado's Jim Creighton missed a free throw with 14 seconds left the fourth one the Buffs blew in the closing minutes. The Cowboys set up Mike Jeffries for the tying field goal and he fired from 20 feet at the two-second mark, but missed. By STEVE SINCLAIR Concordia ended 26 years of basketball frustration, defeating Nebraska Wesleyan, 91-85, at Ira J. Taylor Gym Monday night. The win was the Builders first over NWU since 1945 and the first ever aginst an Irv Peterson coached Wesleyan team.

It also ended an eight game Concordia losing streak. NWU holds a 30-3 series edge. "We're not worried about the past," explained coach Bob Baden in a jubilant Concordia dressing room. "You're going to see a change in the way we play from now on." The hot-shooting Bulldogs utilized a controlled offense which resulted in 33 baskets in only 54 attempts. NWU hit two more field goals but took 81 shots.

"We tried to (fast) break at the start to see what they would do," Baden said, "but we had our offense under control most of the time." "We took good shots, and got a lot of lay ups," he added. gained the lead at 12-10 on a field goal by senior guard Tom Raabe.

"You earned everything you got," Andros told the Cornhuskers. "I know the price you paid to get as far as you got the sacrifice and dedication involved. "It takes tremendous pride, team pride and a burning desire to be great. There's no question in my mind but that Nebraska had all of these things.

"We won't be worrying about 100 points or having 12 guys score," Heller admits. "We'll be real happy to win." While the Class ratings appear much the same as a week ago with only some minor shuffling taking place in the last few positions of the top ten, Class underwent some major changes.

It's not the only challenge Mead faces this week. The Raiders travel to No. 4 rated Odell for a Friday night encounter before meeting Diller Saturday night.

"I don't even want to think about the rest of the weekend yet," Heller confides. "Yutan is big, has a good club, is in our district and it is a conference' game. And of course since we're so close together it's alwaya big rivalry game." Heller's club made the state tournament last season, gaining a first-round victory over Dorchester before bowing to Overton in the semis. "Though we only have two starters back from that club," he says, "they were our top two scorers and our first and third best rebounders." Mead has rattled off eight straight victories this season, scoring over 100 points in five of the eight outings. Corky Charles, a 6-3 junior, has picked up where he left off last year and is leading Mead with a 23ipointper-game average and 17 rebounds.

John Erickson, also 6-3 and a junior, is the other returning starter. Though he's knocking in nearly 13 points a game he's only fourth-best on the club this winter. Mike Couch, a starter when a freshman but who was away from Mead last year, Is back for his junior season. At 6-5, Couch is nearly even with Charles at 21 points and 16 rebounds a game. That's a taller front line than the Class A teams in Lincoln can field.

Yutan is 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 across the ront but has taller guards and Waterloo averages 6-3, with a 6-5 center, two at 6-4, another at 6-3 and one at six feet." Heller only starts one senior, 6-0 guard Rob Gottsch, (14 a game average), with 5-10 junior Steve Carritt at the other spot. Senior Don Simons is the sixth man. "We only have 10 varsity suits," Heller says, "but in four of the five games in which we scored more than 10 points we had 11 boys score and in the other, 12 ol them got on the books. We're bringing as many up for varsity experience as we can." AP 1.
