  1. Sending positive vibes and prayers the Ruffcorn family way. Stay strong!
  2. Just heard that Lincoln Northeast sophomore McKenna Minter picked up her first offer this week .....Creighton.
  3. Anyone else?!.........just kidding! Thanks for the kind remarks above guys they're appreciated. I actually think we have one of the top collegiate wbb message boards out there. There are some teams with none even in the B1G. I love to read what HB or Hud or Norm Petersen or anyone else who writes here, whether you agree or disagree, whether they have 2 posts or 15,000 posts to this forum, in my opinion everyone who contributes to our corner of the cyber-world make this place great.
  4. Back when Dollar Bill Byrne let Paul Sanderford go back in 2002, word being spread around that the new coach would be one with a proven track record or a well-qualified assistant. Word going around in different circles was that Nebraska was looking at Southwest Missouri St’s Cheryl Burnett, Tennessee assistant now head coach Holly Warlock who at one time was an assistant here at Nebraska, and Theresa Becker who had been the head coach at Iowa St and a former NU assistant under Angela Beck. Imagine my surprise when he announced the new coach as Connie Yori. I’ll be honest and say I absolutely hated that hire and didn’t expect much. She started her career at NU with an 8-20 record. If I remember right there were like 200 season ticket holders at the time and she always referred to us as her core group of fans from the get go which filled me with a sense of pride as she progressed the program to where she took it. Needless to say, I eventually forgave “Dollar Bill” for the hire. I was skeptical as to how her second year here would pan out just like fans are right now with Coach Williams. Coach Yori’s second year produced an 18-12 record and a berth in the WNIT tournament, she eventually turned that into the undefeated regular season in 2010 in which a lot of today’s fans jumped on the band wagon. Which was fine by me on both accounts. There honesty isn’t a week that goes by now that someone doesn’t ask me how this new coach will do in her second season. And comparing her to what Coach Yori did I don’t think is fair. I usually tell them we need to give her time. Now, I’m not saying Coach Williams needs to equal what Coach Yori did or do better and I’m not ready and probably won’t be for a while to make a win-loss prediction. But as I look at the somewhat easy non-conference schedule and what I think will be a down year in the B1G I at least see her going 500 or better her second year. That all depends on one thing though, we must keep Rachel Blackburn healthy all season. She is the backbone and leader of this team and it does no good with her riding bench. She in my belief is the key to making this upcoming season a success.
  5. This kid is going to be good!
  6. The non conference schedule is now complete as the Washington St. Cougars were added this morning to complete the non-con slate. The B1G schedule will be announced from the conference at a later date.
  7. No we're not getting another recruit just yet anyway. The coaches are starting to evaluate the 2019 class. The AAU circuit began last week and the coaches are scattered all across the nation watching for that next Husker. Saying "who's next" is their way of putting the 2019 class on alert that they'll be on the lookout nationwide for that next big commit.
  8. Opponents and tip times for the San Juan Shootout were announced this morning, Buffalo and Coastal Carolina are the Husker future foes.
  9. Creighton has now been added to the non-conference schedule, Sunday, November 19th.
  10. I failed to mention that isn't the only honor she was awarded with this spring. Emily also earned the Big Ten Outstanding Sportsmanship Award across all the Husker women's sports in 2016-17. She was named one of Nebraska's Outstanding Scholar Award winners across all sports for her performance in the classroom. She is expected to be a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar for the second consecutive year in 2017, and is a two-time academic All-Big Ten choice.
  11. 59 Nebraska student-athletes were named Big Ten Distinguished Scholars when the conference announced its highest scholastic honor team across all sports yesterday. To no ones surprise here Emily Wood was named as one of them representing the Husker women's basketball team! http://www.huskers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211636392 Way-To-Go, Emily!
  12. Previously we've typically played two exhibition games but last year we only had one. That could be because we played in the early pre-season WNIT too. Not sure if another one will be scheduled or not, could be that the new coaching staff would rather play one than two. I'm guessing just one this year also.
  13. Southern Illinois and UMKC have also been added to the slate.
  14. Yes, it occurs but not as much as in the NBA. Three years ago Minnesota's Amanda Zahui B left after her junior season and the following year Michigan State's Aerial Powers declared early for the draft. Others have declared early from other conferences but those are two recent examples of players from the B1G. If I remember correctly Britany Griner was one of the first underclassmen to declare early.
  15. The B1G/ACC Challenge was announced this morning and the Huskers drew Clemson. Game times, as well as television and streaming video coverage, for this year’s Big Ten/ACC Women’s Basketball Challenge will be announced at a later date. The complete schedule of home/away matchups can be found below. Wednesday, Nov. 29 Florida State at Iowa Maryland at Virginia Notre Dame at Michigan Minnesota at North Carolina Wisconsin at Pittsburgh Thursday, Nov. 30 Virginia Tech at Illinois Louisville at Indiana Michigan State at Miami Clemson at Nebraska Northwestern at Syracuse Ohio State at Duke Wake Forest at Penn State Purdue at Georgia Tech N.C. State at Rutgers
