    Huskers Close 2016 at Iowa on New Year’s Eve

     

    The Nebraska women’s basketball team makes its first Big Ten Conference road trip of the season on Saturday by taking on Iowa on New Year’s Eve at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

     

    Tip-off between the Huskers (4-9) and the Hawkeyes (9-5) is set for 2 p.m.

     

    Nebraska heads to Iowa after suffering a narrow 62-58 loss to 12-2 Northwestern on Wednesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.

    Sophomore Jessica Shepard led the Huskers with 17 points and 15 rebounds, while freshman Hannah Whitish added a career-high 12 points while making her first career start.

     

    The only three players on Nebraska’s current roster who played in last year’s game with Iowa are Shepard, senior center Allie Havers and junior guard Jasmine Cincore.

     

    The Huskers lead the all-time series with Iowa 12-11, including eight straight wins to open NU’s participation in the Big Ten. That winning streak culminated with Nebraska’s 72-65 victory over the Hawkeyes in the 2014 Big Ten Tournament Championship Game in Indianapolis.

     

     

    PROBABLE STARTERS:

     

    Nebraska Cornhuskers 
    32 - Jessica Shepard - 6-4 - So. - F 
    22 - Allie Havers - 6-5 - Sr. - C 
    5 - Nicea Eliely - 6-1 - Fr. - G
    3 - Hannah Whitish - 5-8 - Sr. - G 
    34 - Jasmine Cincore - 5-10 - Jr. - G 

     

    Iowa Hawkeyes 
    23 - Christina Buttenham - 5-11 - Jr. - F
    10 - Megan Gustafson - 6-3 - So. - C 
    2 - Ally Disterhoft - 6-0 - Sr. - G/F 
    11 - Tania Davis - 5-4 - So. - G 
    22 - Kathleen Doyle - 5-9 - Fr. - G

     

     

    Scouting Iowa

     

    Iowa heads into Saturday’s game with a 9-5 overall record after dropping a 70-65 road decision at Illinois in its Big Ten opener last Wednesday.

    Megan Gustafson led the Hawkeyes with 21 points and 13 rebounds, while Ally Disterhoft added a double-double of her own with 11 points and 12 rebounds in a losing effort to the Illini.

     

    Kathleen Doyle who spurned the Huskers contributed 12 points and six assists, while Christina Buttenham pitched in 12 points and five rebounds but committed five turnovers before fouling out in 25 minutes of action.

     

    Tania Davis was shut out on 0-for-6 shooting in 35 minutes, although she managed five rebounds and five assists.

     

    Iowa’s Lisa Bluder will be the third in an amazing stretch of head coaches the Huskers are facing midway through the 2016-17 campaign. Bluder, who is in her 33rd season as a head coach and 17th season at Iowa, owns 688 career wins and will be the third consecutive coach

     

    Nebraska has faced with more than 600 victories and 30 years of head coaching experience. She followed Northwestern’s Joe McKeown, who owns 650 career victories in 31 seasons as a head coach.

     

    Nebraska’s six-game stretch against highly successful coaches began with the legendary Geno Auriemma, who owns 967 wins at UConn. Following the Iowa game, Nebraska’s next three opposing coaches have all notched at least 400 wins as head coaches, beginning with Maryland’s Brenda Frese (440 wins) and Michigan State’s Suzy Merchant (415) before facing Naismith Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer (974) and Rutgers

     

    Overall, the six coaches have amassed 4,134 wins in 182 seasons as head coaches.

     

    Husker Nuggets
     

    Jessica Shepard leads the Huskers with averages of 17.9 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. She produced her 17th career double-double with 17 points and 15 rebounds in Nebraska’s Big Ten opener with Northwestern 

     

     Nicea Eliely, has started all 13 games and is averaging 8.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game

     

    Nebraska senior Allie Havers has competed in 109 consecutive games since the first game of her freshman season in 2013-14.
     

    Jasmine Cincore owns the longest streak of consecutive starts among the Huskers with 18. Allie Havers has made 16 straight starts, while Nicea Eliely and Jessica Shepard have each started 13 straight games this season.
     

     Hannah Whitish was Nebraska’s top contributor off the bench in non-conference play before making her first career start in Nebraska’s Big Ten opener with Northwestern. Whitish, scored a career-high 12 points and added four assists in a career-high 27 minutes against Northwestern.
     

    Nebraska’s four-player freshman class of Rylie Cascio Jensen, Nicea Eliely, Grace Mitchell and Hannah Whitish have been looked to for immediate contributions on the Huskers’ 11-player active roster.
     

     

    GAME NOTES:
    BEAT THE BLUDER HELL OUT Iowa!

    I tell you Alexa Kastanek has got to be second guessing her decision of choosing to go to Iowa and keeping their bench warm. I think she might have got in today for a whole 30 seconds. K Doyal will be good but as we all know she would have been better if she had a red uniform.

    I was on the road all day so didn't get to watch the game yet but in reading the above comments and looking at the Stat Sheet the thing that stands out in addition to the turnovers is the lack of production from the bench.  10 points less in this game then Iowa.  Need to find somebody there to step up.

     

    Our depth is showing in several ways. It looked like we had enough experience to have a nucleolus of scoring coming back  this year, but isn't always there week in and week out. Coach is giving them all a chance, We played 6 or 7 the most of the game, & less time for some. Our guard play is slowly opening up the inside for Jess & Allie. Allie had a very productive game. Got into foul trouble late.

     

    I keep hoping one or two more can be more productive scoring. We need 10 to 12 ppg from at least 2 players, plus Jess at her near 20, plus more production from several...we're not getting it every week right now.  Our defense wasn't picture perfect, but was better. The zone helped, and actually gave them momentary breathers not having to chase someone around the floor, but still takes a lot of focus. We did execute the zone with pretty good discipline most of the time. It helps keep us fresher for later in the game.

     

    Transition points early was in Iowa's favor and the difference in the game.

    Any idea what they can do to get Maddie going?  So athletic but seems to be 'scared' when she's out there. Her size out there could be so helpful if she could be productive.

    seemed like there were some "flashes" last season that gave hope she could take a big step forward this season. not happening so far. disappointing. figured getting "bench points" would be a struggle this season---need to add some to that "4 points". didn't get to see or listen to the game, but, it was good to see they made a game of it at iowa. not surprised to read some of those "bad habits" reared their ugly head, but, like the fight down to the end.

    Forgot to mention it yesterday, but our seats were in front of a group that traveled over from somewhere around the Sioux City area and they informed us that in their opinion, when the Huskers received the verbal from Ashtyn Verbeek a few weeks ago they were disappointed that Iowa didn't get her. In their opinion the Huskers scored the best 2018 player to come out of Iowa.

    well, nice to hear/read those comments, but, did you happen to ask them why ashley joens is rated hoopgurlz #16 and prospectsnation #27 and ashtyn veerbeek is not even on the boards? don't get me wrong, i really hope they are right in their assessment, but, just sayin'............

     

    if you crack the top 50 in practically all the recruiting boards, odds are you are a pretty darn good baller.

    Ashley Joens never crossed my mind when we were talking to them. These Iowa fans were from somewhere close to where Verbeek plays high school and had seen her actually play. Hence, why I think their opinion of her is pretty high. Reminded me of a few years back when there was an Nebraska all-state player who sort of went under the radar when recruiting came along by the name of Jordan Hooper.
