Husker ladies are going to Win this, lead 65-62 @ 28 sec.

 

MSU w a off-balance trey, officials reviewing for 2 or a 3.

 

my heart sank when that happened---------that shot reminds us just how cruel sports can be. yes, i am going to overlook some other elements of the game, BUT, right after it happened i was thinking the team and the seniors deserved better than that. i would have accepted your "basic" look at a 3 pointer, but, the way she shot it, angle she shot it, banking it off the glass and huskers right there-----i am not sure she could ever make that again. will have to look for a replay of the shot.

The banked 3 was just pure luck. Never make that shot again.....just threw it up.  Had she missed.... the game was over.

 

We have figured out how to win. We decided to want it enough. Make a decent percentage on FT's, and it would have been won in regulation.

 

Nicea's defense gave us a chance...she gets the awesome award today. Jess and Hannah deserve it too...Allie played her guts out.  Maddie came in and played much more in control and we benefited from it.

 

Just the greatest effort this year...and for that matter one of the better ones in the last few years. To be the team we started, and with little experience.... to grow up into a tough B1G competitor.  AWESOME!!

just a HUGE defensive play on Allen by Havers in the final seconds sending Jess to the free throw line!!! 💪👏😃

 

another great game from jess (but, those free throws---and add on a few "bunnies" she missed...)

 

nicea, what a defensive specialist. really great game although no offense. 

 

whitish! BOOM!

Looks like a good crowd, from a BTNPlus vantage point.  Attendance estimate?

What a game to end up on!!

 

Way to protect the home court these last two home games!!

 

Michigan State just about won it at the end had that full court shot been 12 inches shorter.

 

Once our big girls decided to play some solid defense from the middle of the third quarter on we turned into another team out there. Our defense fueled our offense and it helped secure this game. And one that was fun to watch!

 

That had to be Allie's best defensive output of the year. That kid also grabbed some big and crucial rebounds down the stretch. Wouldn't have won without her today. It also turned out to be Maddie Simon's best game of her career so far. Jess Shepard with huge numbers again, just wish she'd do a better job on the foul line. 

 

I'm extremely ecstatic over how well our two freshmen starters played today!!

 

Nicea E, although she didn't hit a bucket, she played her arse off the whole time she was on the court!! Her defense, hustle, fight and determination is a major reason we won today!  Nicea held Jankoska to seven points the whole afternoon, Jankoska scored the rest of her point's when Nicea was on the bench taking a breather or after she fouled out. That darn technical Nicea was assessed with could have went on either team as there was pushing and shoving on both teams, Jankoska was the one who initiated it, Nicea just happened to be the one the ref saw.

 

How about that other freshman? Hannah with some fantastic shots and rebounds just at the right time! I wished that they would have run more plays for her over the course of the season for getting her open for more shots. The way she can put the ball in the hole is just going to get better as she matures the next few years.

 

Cu-do's to a fantastic atmosphere, without a doubt, the crowd turned out to be a sixth player for the Huskers down the stretch!

 

Just an unbelievable way to end play in PBA this year.

I have been praying to the porcelain god much of the day so missed the game.  Hearing the winning outcome helped immensely!

Maybe it's just me but I thought Jessica Shepard showed a lot of hustle getting back on plays during this game than I had noticed previously.  :ph34r:

no doubt fans have been seeing a different hannah the past few weeks. looks far more comfortable out there and appears to want the ball in her hands moving down the court----and, she can handle the ball very well. you see her reacting to/with the crowd. she is learning how to create a shot for herself (which i would have liked to see her do earlier in the season, but, hey....). without dredging up the old stuff, things have worked out very nice for hannah and excited for next season and beyond. 

 

regular season stats for hannah: (from huskers.com)

 

min/game  689  avg. minutes 24.6

fg's: 82-204   40.2%

3pt'ers: 53-133  39.8%

ft's: 27-37 73%

67 rebounds

76 assists to 43 turnovers

4 blocks

27 steals

244pts for 8.7 avg

To answer your question yes we had 2 recruits from Minnesota there.  Both 2018 kids I believe.   -- and special shout out to Maddie. She has taken some heat on here by a few posters but she was great yesterday for the second gm n a row and we wouldn't have won without her.   She had 3 of the biggest hustle plays of the gm; scored the ball and had 4 asst against zero TO in 28 minutes.

after i had posted, i realized i should have mentioned maddie simon. a great game from her also. hopefully, it "clicks" for her from now on! no doubt she could be a huge asset if the consistency improves.

I have watched Maddie with great admiration over the years.  Her athleticism and dedication were never in doubt.  I think the whole saga of a new coach, offense etc. set her back mentally this year as her confidence took a big hit.  The last two games have given us a glimpse of her upside.  I believe she will continue to absorb the changes and will be a big asset going forward.
