  1. Quite a few of us did. I actually believed it was a for long conclusion that she would announce this. I was hoping at first it was just a rumor and that Coach Williams could get her to buy in, get in shape and start to play at a top level. The part of the rumor I despised the most was that during the season she was contacting other programs about transferring and gauging the interest they had in her. Channel 10/11 confirmed this rumor last night. I'll admit it was extremely hard watching her play with that rumor of what she was doing in the back of my mind. The main reason I very seldom gave her game props in game day threads and was reluctant to post in this thread. I'm actually glad that we'll never have to look up at the northeast wall at PBA and see her number up there with the likes of Ivy, Jennings, Griffin, Moore, Hooper or who ever else that might get put up there. I also have my fingers crossed that this will light a fire under the coaching staff to go out there and prove they can get us back to being a consistent top 10-20 team. Nebraska is still a head coaches dream job even with the lull we've hit these past couple of seasons. There's to much fan support, budget support and great facilities to let this program slip more into mediocrity.
  2. As of March 26th Michigan is the only B1G team left standing in the post season. OSU and Maryland's run in the NCAA tourney came to an end this past weekend and Iowa and Indiana's WNIT run came to and end today. Michigan is in the final four of the WNIT and plays Villanova Wednesday.
  3. Will be interresting to see if cinderella #12 seed Quinnipiac can continue the run they're on. I'm thinking it probably comes to an end this afternoon when they go up against #1 seed South Carolina. The Florida St/Oregon St game will be an good game to watch too. the lone B1G participant Maryland is playing now and leading Oregon in the first quarter.
  4. For those interested in the WNIT tourney Indiana, Michigan and Iowa from the B1G are all in the Elite 8 of that tournament. Michigan goes up against a team the Huskers went up against last season in Virginia Tech tomorrow, as does Iowa who plays Wazzou Sunday. Indiana plays Villanova also on Sunday.
  5. There's truly like 50 people in the arena at the Texas - Stanford game in Lexington KY. unbelievable!
  6. Major props go out to these four studious Huskers! Four Nebraska women's basketball student-athletes were honored for their achievements on the court and in the classroom by capturing Academic All-Big Ten accolades on March 22. Allie Havers, Jasmine Cincore, Emily Wood and Maddie Simon all represented the Huskers on the conference's winter academic honor team. They were among 61 women's basketball players across the 14 Big Ten schools to claim awards. Overall, the Big Ten recognized 787 student-athletes competing in conference winter sports. To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. Havers, a 6-5 center and psychology major from Mattawan, Mich., earned the third Academic All-Big Ten award of her career. On the court, she started all 29 games for the Huskers and averaged 6.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in 2016-17. Cincore, a 5-10 guard from Arlington, Tenn., who is majoring in advertising and public relations at Nebraska, claimed her second straight Academic All-Big Ten honor. Cincore joined Havers in Nebraska's starting five for all 29 games in 2016-17, averaging 6.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists. Wood, a 5-5 guard from Salina, Kan., appeared in all 29 games for the Huskers as a junior. The management major carries better than a 3.9 GPA and was a CoSIDA Academic All-America nominee for the Huskers in 2017. She is on track to earn her degree in just three years and plans to attend graduate school at Nebraska while completing her eligibility as a senior in 2017-18. Wood averaged 2.1 points per game while earning her second straight spot on the Academic All-Big Ten team. She was also a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2016. Simon, a 6-2 forward/guard from Lincoln, Neb., earned her first Academic All-Big Ten award. The sophomore communication studies major was also a CoSIDA Academic All-America nominee in 2017. She appeared in all 29 games and averaged 4.1 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while transitioning from the guard to forward spot in 2016-17.
  7. Just out of curiously I looked up the D-1 school in Omaha to see how many Omaha metro players they had on their roster this past season and much to the dismay of Darryl they 15 players on their roster and only had 1 player from Omaha, Brianna Rollerson and she was hurt much of her time so she didn't get to see the court as much as she would have liked. They also had Lauren Works from Lincoln Southwest, and the other Nebraska kid listed on their roster was the Kissinger girl from Class C-1 Minden that transferred last season from Illinois. Creighton, by the way had 6 kids on their roster from Minnesota. Omaha the other D-1 team in Omaha had 14 players on their roster and only 2 representing the great state of Nebraska. 1 from the Omaha metro Jay Bridgeman and the other is Mikeala Shaw from Class C-2 Sandy Creek. Four from Missouri.
  8. For those that read the article online, did you read the comment left by Darryl Cobbs at the end of the article?
  9. Nancy Fahey is the new Illini head coach.
  10. Watched the Washington games the past two rounds where they've dismantled both Montana St. and last night Oklahoma. Kelsey Plum is a stud. She had 29 against MSU and threw in a measly 38 last night against OU. They pass the ball better than any team I've seen the past couple of season's, defense is suspect though. Of course I'll admit I watch U-Dub because of Natalie, she had 11 pts the first round and 20 last night hitting on 6 of 10 three pointers.
  11. UNL freshman basketball player’s talent stems from father’s support
  12. I'd be satisfied if their first order of business was removing the clown, nut-job. student or whoever that sits right behind the TV announcers during the game that is constantly yelling over the top of the broadcast.
  13. Here you go. She was in Vermillion last night watching South Dakota beat North Dakota in the first round of the WNIT.
  14. Ashtyn Veerbeek named the Sioux City Journal Girls high school player of the year. HULL, Iowa | During a state tournament postgame interview, a reporter queried Hull Western Christian girls basketball coach Justin Negen about whether or not he has to let his players know to feed Ashtyn Veerbeek the ball when she’s hot.“They know,” Negen responded. It certainly shouldn’t require a lot of thought on the part of Western Christian players when it comes to getting the ball in the hands of Veerbeek, honored today as The Sioux City Journal girls basketball player of the year. Although only a junior, the 6-foot-2 Veerbeek has established herself as the cream of the crop with her versatility, court knowledge and God-given basketball talent. The University of Nebraska commit led the Wolfpack to their fourth Iowa Class 2A state championship in the last six seasons, averaging 22.8 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. Those totals ranked second and sixth, respectively, in Class 2A. “She’s a super-special talent but what’s so great about her is she’s extremely coachable,” Negen said. “She wants to learn more, she wants to be challenged and really emerged this year as a great leader for our team. “Ashtyn loves hoops and it was just so much fun to watch her develop not only skill wise throughout the course of the season but as a leader in the locker room and the floor.” Veerbeek was at her finest when Western Christian dismantled top-ranked and previously unbeaten Iowa City Regina 71-49 in a state tournament semifinal. She scored 31 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked six shots. The Wolfpack had a nailbiter with Treynor in the championship game, pulling out a 51-48 victory despite a rare sub-par performance from Veerbeek, who readily admitted that fact after the game. “She may not have had her greatest game against Treynor but she was right there in the huddle getting everybody fired up,” Negen said. “We’re glad to have her." ⦁ The 17-year-old daughter of Ron and Tammi Veerbeek already ranks second on the school’s all-time girls scoring list with 1,252 points. Brooke (Wolterstorff) Granstra is the leader with 1,314 points. ⦁ A two-time all-stater, Veerbeek played on a state runner-up team as a freshman and semifinalist last season. Despite losing their coach, Bill Harmsen, who guided the team to three state titles in a row before taking over the boys program, the Wolfpack returned to the top of the heap this season. “Having a new coach was a little bit of a different transition but we just had to trust Coach Negen to continue the success of the program,” Veerbeek said. “We just went to practice every day trying to get better than we were the day before and keep working toward our goal which was ultimately to win the state championship. “Our seniors did a great job of leading us and making sure we were working our hardest every day. Being able to get down to state and win just capped it off and it was awesome and a dream come true.” Although primarily a forward, the agile Veerbeek is called upon quite often to bring the ball up the court. She has expanded her range, which has made her even more of a threat to score any time she has the ball in her hands. “Last year I played mostly in the paint and rarely went outside to shoot,” Veerbeek said. “This year I really worked on my outside shot and becoming a threat on the perimeter so that if I hit some big shots outside they would have to come at me and I could take them to the hole off my dribble. Being able to open up my game by creating an outside shot was big. “I tried to use that more this year and I’ll keep working on shooting and ballhandling, just trying to get better at those skills.” Veerbeek has spent the last several years playing for the Iowa Barnstormers West AAU team, composed of players from Northwest Iowa. She will step it up this summer and play for the All Iowa Attack program out of Ames, where she will compete with and against some of the top players in the state. Veerbeek also earned all-state volleyball honors and her mother has guided the Wolfpack to multiple state championships. Basketball, though, is her first love and she is looking forward to continuing not only next season at Western Christian, but as a future Nebraska Cornhusker.
