Although Southern Methodist had come up nine points short in an early season match with Bradley, 20 points from senior guard Art Barnes and 19 from Krebs kept the Ponies in conten- tion. But they trailed by two at the final buzzer and dropped a one-point decision to Tulsa in the consola- tion game to conclude the cam- paign with 15 victories and 11 defeats. The opponents Krebs had burned as a sophomore sensation were out for revenge his junior year. Night after night he foiled defenses custom-made to contain him sinking enough shots to average a fraction over 19 points an outing. After taking their licks from the Iowa Hawkeyes, who would play for the national championship, and the Kansas Jayhawks, the Mustangs reeled off 19 victories in a row. They ran the table in the conference winning all 12 games by an average of 16 points. In his history-making rampage that February versus Texas, Krebs hit 20 field goals and 10 of 11 free throws. His 50 broke the old record of 49 shared by the Longhorns' Slater Martin and Dick O'Neal of TCU. Even though Krebs was again the top scorer and rebounder, the 1955-56 Ponies were by no means a one-man team.
