    Huskers Hope to Tame Bulldogs at Home Tuesday

     

    The Nebraska women’s basketball team continues its three-game home stand by taking on Drake Tuesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

     

    Tip-off between the Huskers (3-5) and the Bulldogs (3-3) is set for 7 p.m.

     

    Nebraska will try to snap a four-game losing streak when they face Drake. The Huskers have lost two games to Pac-12 foes (California, 7-0; Washington State, 5-3) and two more to ACC opponents (Virginia Tech, 7-0; Virginia, 5-2) with three of the games coming on the road during the stretch. Those four opponents have a combined record of 24-5.

     

    Through Sunday’s games, Nebraska’s first eight opponents owned a combined mark of 45-18 and Nebraska’s strength of schedule was No. 11 nationally according to RPIratings.com.

     

    Drake is 3-3 overall and 1-3 away from home after suffering a 71-48 loss at 6-1 Green Bay. However, a potent Drake offense featuring one of the school’s all-time leading scorers Lizzy Wendell, will still provide a tough test for the young Huskers.

     

    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
    11 - Esther Ramacieri - 5-8 - Sr.
    34 - Jasmine Cincore - 5-10 - Jr. - G

     

    Drake Bulldogs
    3 - Lizzy Wendell - 6-0 - Sr. - F
    50 - Sara Rhine - 6-1 - So. - F
    21 - Sammie Bachcrodt - 5-10 - So. - G
    22 - Caitlin Ingle - 5-8 - Sr. - G
    24 - Nicole Miller - 5-9 - So. - G

     

    Scouting Drake

     

    Coach Jennie Baranczyk brings her fifth Drake Bulldog team to Pinnacle Bank Arena to face the Huskers. Baranczyk, who is a 2004 graduate of Iowa, owns a 74-59 record at Drake in her first stint as a head coach. Last season, she led the Bulldogs to a 23-10 overall record that included a 14-4 Missouri Valley Conference mark. The Bulldogs tied for second in the Valley before advancing to the 2016 Postseason WNIT.
    Drake returns four starters from last year’s squad, including the school’s No. 5 all-time leading scorer Lizzy Wendell. The 6-0 senior guard from Blue Springs, Mo., enters Tuesday night’s game with 1,992 points. She needs eight points to become just the fourth Drake player to reach 2,000 career points.

     

    A trio of sophomores join Drake’s history-making seniors in the starting five. Sammie Bachcrodt, a 5-10 guard, ranks second on the team in scoring (11.5 rpg) and third on the team in rebounding (5.2 rpg) while leading the Bulldogs from three-point range (13-25, .520). She also ranks second on the team with 10 steals.

     

    Sara Rhine, a 6-1 forward has pitched in 11.3 points and a team-best 6.3 rebounds per game. Rhine also leads the Bulldogs in free throws made (24) and attempted (26) while hitting 92.3 percent of her shots at the stripe.

     

    Nicole Miller, a 5-9 guard, rounds out Drake’s starting five with 5.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
    As a team, Drake is shooting a solid .453 from the field, including .284 from three-point range. The Bulldogs have been outrebounded, 37.8-37.2 and own a minus-1.2 team turnover margin, while forcing 14.8 turnovers per game.

     

    Nebraska leads the all-time series with Drake, 10-8, including Postseason WNIT wins in the last two meetings. The Huskers defeated Drake 62-59 in 2006, at the Devaney Center, and rolled to a 73-60 win over the Bulldogs in 2004 at Devaney.

     

    Tuesday’s game will be Drake’s first-ever game at Pinnacle Bank Arena and the first regular-season meeting between the Huskers and Bulldogs in Lincoln since 2002. Nebraska is set to return to Drake in non-conference play next season.

     

    Nebraska is 5-5 all-time against Drake in Lincoln.

     

    Husker Nuggets

     

    Drake is Nebraska’s eighth consecutive opponent this season that currently carries a .500 or better record. The combined record of Nebraska’s first seven opponents this season is 45-18 (.714).

     

    Jessica Shepard leads the Huskers with averages of 17.5 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.

     

    Shepard leads Nebraska in three-point field goals made (11) and three-point field goal percentage (.500),

     

    Nebraska freshman Nicea Eliely ranks second on the team in scoring (8.8 ppg), fourth in rebounding (3.6 rpg), second in assists (2.6 apg) and first in steals (1.8 spg) through the first eight games of her collegiate career.

     

    Nebraska senior Allie Havers has competed in 104 consecutive games since the first game of her freshman season in 2013-14. The Huskers own a 68-36 record in those contests over the last four years.
     

    The Huskers have knocked down at least one three-pointer in 259 straight regular-season games

    Sunday's halftime was a no-show, officials are hoping tonight's halftime show the Russian Bar Trio makes it. Here's a sample of what to expect tonight.

    14-20 in the second after 2 Drake free throws. 

     

    Nicea makes a layup! 16-20... and then a triple for Drake. 16-23.

     

    YOU BETCHA! Counterattack! 19-23. 

     

    ROOF ROOF ROOF... oh, wait. Wrong sport!

     

    Jess picks up her second foul.

     

    Washington then fouls a shooter who missed. 6:42 in the 2nd.

    We just don't play man defense well at all.....can't keep up with the offense player.  Switching seems to be a mystery for some. There's always some one open for Drake

     

    TURNOVERS!!

     

    We need bigs that can defend and not foul !

    Much better 2nd qtr. Defense improved as game went on.

     

    Allie is looking more like herself from last year.  Shooting real well. Moving well around the basket offensively.

     

    Nicea and Hannah play well together. Hannah is getting more disruptive on defense. We had a real good flow for  awhile....wonder if we should have just let that particular 5 play for a while.

     

    Game is very winnable

    my gosh---the freakin' passing!?! ugh. 

    never thought rebounding would be a strength of this team----if their shots aren't falling, going to be a real struggle.

    It's really frustrating to see this team struggle. But, with a new coach and likely chemistry problems, I fear this team is really going to take its lumps this year.

    Is this team improving, spinning it's wheels or regressing?

     

    After this game...I'm puzzled. I couldn't figure out what we trying to do.  I know we want to get the ball inside to Jess, but seem to be abandoning everything else, like breaking to the basket like Drake did for the whole game.... so they can get assists for baskets.

     

    While I'm all for subbing and giving everyone a chance, but we don't get into a flow when we don't know who we're playing with. It does make a difference if you know what your fellow player is going to do. We just don't seem to have that right now.

     

    Just so much to do better.

     

    The one time Allie was scoring well, and we caught up and tied the score...they get pulled out of the game, instead of letting them play. Allie should have played the entire second half. Game went down hill after that and ...we were no longer competitive.

     

    Noah's right...no chemistry

    That was just painful to watch. Especially the second half.  

    I would agree. Not sure San Jose State will be a lot different. 

    Crowds will get thinner too.

    Back when my brother was in high school his coach would play the starters they would start playing good then he would pull them and put the subs in just when the subs starting doing well bs k in would go the starters never could get into a rhythm. My dad would get so frustrated.

    I am completely befuddled.  On offense we look completely timid;  unwilling to pass inside and unwilling to drive and unwilling to put up a 3.  On defense we look completely without a team concept.  How do so many players get so open behind us?  Are we really that confused?  This is my team and I will not quit on it but shouldn't we be getting better?
