NEW YORK - Cazzie Russell, way
the all-time darling of Michigan tim
basketball, suffered a fractured Ind
left wrist last night as the New Bro
York Knicks fell before the speed- goa
ing Baltimore Bullets by a 110- joy
108 count. T
Russell's hand will be in a cast to

Gus Johnson of the Bullets, sty- cloc
mied all night by the tight New die
York defense, assumed the hero's to a
role with 14 seconds left in the 55
game when he sank two free the
throws to give his team their B
final margin of victory.
The Bullet win washed out a
fine performance , by the Knicks
dynamic duo of Willis Reed and
Walt Frazier, who scored 34 and
30 points respectively.
Former Detroit Piston ace Ed-
die Miles netted 25 for the Bul-
lets while Kevin Loughery backed
him up with 23.
The Knicks trailed throughout
the first half, battled back to knot
the score, and finally lost the -
heartbreaker on Johnson's pair of er i
charity tosses. tors

DICKEY GUIDES KSU
Nebraska set for tough test

---.(i>

ti

By KEN COHN
There are presently only two
Big Eight teams ranked in the
top twenty, which, far from prov-
ing the league's mediocrity, re-
flects the usual internecine nature
of conference play. Any one of
five or six teams were given a
chance to take the title in Sep-
tember, and with just a few weeks
left in the season, the dust has
not yet settled.
Tomorrow, two of the three re-
maining contenders-the fourth-
ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers and
the 20-ranked Kansas State Wild-
cast-will clash at Lincoln in a
game which will very likely deter-
mine a champion. Nebraska is 5-0
in Big Eight play (8-0-1) overall)
while the Wildcats have a 5-1 con-
ference mark. If the Huskers win,
they will eliminate K-State and
clinch a title tie, with the Okla-
homa game a week later their
only remaining obstacle.
On the other hand, a Wildcatj
victory tomorrow would probably
result in a tie for the champion-
ship between K-State and the
winner of the Nebraska-Oklahoma
game. Oklahoma would be best
off if tomorrow's game ended a
standoff; the Sooners would then
have a dark-horse shot at an out-
right championship. Meanwhile,
Orange Bowl officials will be
scratching their heads and trying:
to seduce Ara Parseghian.
Nebraska, despite an early-sea-j
son tie with Southern Cal, remains
a hopeful contender for the num-
ber one spot in the polls. In the:
last three games, the Huskers
have averaged almost 50 points a
game and last week bored Iowa
State 54-29. Van Brownson has
beer, the first-string quarterback
since a clutch performance in the
Kansas game a month ago, but
Jerry Tagge is as experienced a
back-up signal-caller as could be
found anywhere.
The dependable ground game is
underpinned by the one-two punch
of Joe Ordunadand Jeff Kinney
with 1250 yards between them,!
while compact speedsters Johnny
Rodgers and Guy Ingles are the
main aerial targets, with 29 and
28 receptions respectively.
Two hundred-ten-pound middle
guard Ed Periard and star line-
backer Jerry Murtaugh have to-
gether contributed 89 unassisted
tackles to a defense that has given
up more than two touchdowns in
only one game.
Coach Bob Devaney, though,

recognizing the threat presented
by the Wildcats, led by super-
quarterback Lynn Dickey, said
this week, "I'm glad we've got two
outstanding quarterbacks because
we are going to see one of the
nation's and the Big Eight's best
this week. K-State has a tremen-
dous defensive unit, so we'll be
facing as tough a team or tougher
than any we've met all year."
The Wildcats, 6-3 on the season,
do not have quite the same incen-
tive as Nebraska. Come what may,
they will watch the bowl games on
TV come New Year's Day. For
years the doormat of the Big
Eight, K-State, under the helm of
Vince Gibson, has undertaken a
massive recruiting and rebuilding
program in the last three or four
years. Gibson's success has been
Pyrrhic; the NCAA last month
slapped the team with a three-
year probation for recruitment
violations, forbidding attendance
at any post-season games.
The 'Cats were further crippled
by the injury of the widely-ac-
claimed Dickey; his sore ribs kept
him out of two games and con-
tributed to as many losses. But
with a healthy Dickey, the Man-
hattan maulers have come back
strong with four straight wins, as
they look for their first confer-
ence crown since the early days
of the old Big Six.
"We haven't lost any desire be-
cause of our inability to go to a
bowl," maintains Coach Gibson.
The K-State grid renaissance
has produced an experienced team
(23 seniors on the squad) alcng
with an ample supply of fresh
talent concentrated in the fresh-
man team and this year's sopho-
mores, 25 of whom were red-
shirted this season.
Dickey, despite his slow start,
now ranks fourth among all quar-
terbacks, past and present, in
career pass completion and fifth
in passing yardage, having thrown
for over 5700 in three years. He
holds a total of 11 Big Eight re-
cords.

Fullback Mike Montgomery leads
the team in rushing and passes
caught, while wingback Henry
Hawthorne has rolled up 438
yards on receptions and has
scored nine TD's.
The Wildcats will be hurt by
the loss of injured linebacker Os-
car Gibson (no relation to Vince),
but the defense continues to win
the unanimous praise of the K-
State coaches. Defensive end Mike
Kuhn starred in last week's 28-15
triumph over Oklahoma State. aI
game further marked by the 130-
yard performance of running back
Bill Butler.
K-State has its work cut out for
it, especially in the light of the
numerous mental mistakes made
by the offensive line against Ok-
lahoma State. "Nebraska has a
very good, solid football team.";
comments Gibson "It's well-bal-I
anced on offense, and has a prov-
en defense."
But he further expressed his
confidence in the Wildcat's pros-
pects. "We're very, optimistic,
since we've always played well at;
Lincoln (State beat the Huskers,
there 12-0 two years ago(. So,
we're not afraid to play there."
