Having watched the game on BTN Plus, listened to the audio and the post game interviews with Matt, and made my way through the posts in this thread, my two cents:
I agree with everyone touting Coach Williams for post season honors. Her energy, attitude, enthusiasm, personality, love of Huskers, etc. comes through loud and clear. The team is in good hands. She inspires (and knows what she is doing).
Regarding the game, I'm still smiling. I was a bit down on Hannah with the turnovers in the first half, but her shooting made up for them. Her 2nd half was fantastic. The tone Jasmine set on the boards early was huge. You can't ask more from a senior leader. Nicea might have had the best total game of her career. Her defense is so reliable. 3 for 3 from long range. I almost think her late free throws made were as important as the long range shots. Maddie is rock solid. She closed out last year on an upswing, and has been improving ever since. She is taking the ball to the hoop as well as anyone on the team. Taylor has improved game by game. Not sure how much the knee set her back, but she must have been taking in the lessons regardless. She's been able to shoot from day 1, but seems to be in much more control, on both ends of the court now. She takes care of the ball, plays smart, position defense, looks to pass, crashes boards, and seems to enjoy it all. Kate, what a 2nd half. Rachel and Darrien gave her plenty of rest in the first half, and it showed. Kate was fresh and took over the paint. Janae has really come on. I too wish she had another year or two. Bria has also been a spark. She might handle the ball well enough to take some of the pressure off Hannah. And we've also seen, during the year, how Woody and Grace can contribute. This was a team victory.
Last year, I wondered why I subscribed to BTN Plus. This year, best money I've ever spent. Thanks Huskers.
