    Husker Ladies (14-16) (9-9) (0-1)

    Coming off a 21 Win Season in 2017/18, the Husker WBB Team lost a ton of leadership and experience from graduation. There was only a single Senior on this year's team. This lack of experience is reflected in this season's 14 wins, despite returning several stand-out starters and a top-20 class of recruits; And their not qualifying for post-season play.

    Inexperience was particularly evident in inability to close out contested games. Ten losses were decided by ten points or less, and six of the losses were decided by five points or less.

    Next Year's team will have Three Seniors, Two Juniors, and the returning class of Four Freshmen, now seasoned Sophomores. With an incoming class of three highly-regarded recruits, the WBB Team is Poised to Improve on last season's record and return to Post-Season play.

    Is there any hope, Don? This is shaping up to be a terrible season.

    I'm sure I am not the best one to ask :Redface:; No doubt we overachieved last season. So far this season we've underachieved; But look at who we've lost to: Drake, Washington St, Miami & Louisville, all well-regarded teams and three in the top 25. Both Drake and Washington State were winnable games.

    I think the newcomers replace the talent that we lost to graduation, but we are missing their experience. With all the newcomers, talented as they are, I don't think the team has developed the level of mental toughness they had as a team last year, sort of a 'Us Against the World' coming off a the prior 7 win season, but I believe that should come with time. So far, I haven't seen any 'Quit' in this team, showing an ability to rally from deficits; one of the characteristics of last year's team.

    The big Ten will be tough again this year, and we won't be sneaking up on anybody, but I think its too early to start counting them out based on the 2-4 record.

    Last year they lost to Creighton @ PBA; We'll see how well they do in tomorrow's game. :Cheer2::Cheer2::Cheer2:

    Kansas was a good game, but turned into a nail-biter near the end; we failed to put them away in the 3rd Qtr when we had a 14 pt lead, and wound up holding on to win by six.

    Our incoming Freshmen are all very talented; all could be starters (or could play starter minutes) now, but I think we need to play with more TEAM discipline and mental toughness, which takes time to develop.

    IMHO, the future is bright.

    (appreciate your contributions to the WBB forum :))
