After a slow start (15-15 at the end of Q1) Lady Huskers catch fire; 18-0 run. Smothering Defense!!!!
Now 30-18 w/3:05 left in the half.

Video is free, so you're missing a good game if you're not tuned in.

Treys start falling for the CowGirls. Halftime score: 32-28, Lady Huskers.
Close Game in the Third quarter. Cowgirls draw within one point, Huskers start to pull away at the end of the quarter; buzzer beater layup by Markowski to end the third. 54-44 Huskers.

A good game. Tune-in if you can.

Laramie, Wyo. - Nebraska used a decisive 19-2 second-half surge to build a 21-point lead on its way to a 71-52 women's basketball win at Wyoming on Friday night.
  • Nebraska improved to 2-0 with the win, while the Cowgirls slipped to 1-1.
  • Alexis Markowski, who scored the first 10 points of Nebraska's massive second-half surge, notched her 22nd career double-double and first of the young season with 17 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.
  • Jaz Shelley added 15 points, seven assists and four rebounds despite going without a three-pointer, while freshman Natalie Potts pitched in 15 points of her own to go along with a tremendous defensive performance.
  • Darian White rounded out four Huskers in double figures with 11 points, including a k;ey three-pointer during Nebraska's surge. She and Potts were also the primary instigators for Nebraska turning the tide after a slow start to the game.
This was a 4 point game with around 4 or 5 minutes to play in the 3rd quarter. I think our depth wore them down and we pulled away in the fourth. I did not expect to win by nearly 20 with the way the game was going most of the night.
