--------------------------------------------------------------

Last Time Out
• Nebraska is coming off a 55-47 win over Coastal Carolina in NU’s final game of the San Juan Shootout in Daytona Beach, Fla., on Nov. 24. The 47 points allowed by the Huskers in the win over the Chanticleers marked the fewest points scored against an Amy Williams-coached Nebraska team.

• A pair of Husker freshmen are on top Nebraska’s offensive statistics early in the season. Taylor Kissinger, a 6-1 guard from Minden, Neb., is averaging a team-high 13.5 points per game while leading the Big Red with 18 three-pointers on 38.3 percent (18-47) shooting from long range. Kissinger averaged 14.0 points and buried nine threes in two games at the San Juan Shootout.

• Kate Cain, a 6-5 freshman center from Middletown, N.Y., ranks second among the Huskers in scoring (9.7 ppg) and third in rebounding (5.2 rpg) while leading the Huskers in blocked shots (2.7 bpg). Cain, who has 16 blocks, needs four more to join the top 10 freshman block totals (20) in NU history.

• Nebraska junior forward Maddie Simon has missed the last three games for the Huskers with a severely sprained ankle. Simon is averaging 6.7 points and a team-best 9.3 rebounds per game.

• Husker sophomore Nicea Eliely has returned to the lineup the past three games, averaging 5.3 points and 6.3 rebounds during that span.

Scouting Clemson

• Coach Audra Smith is in her fifth season leading Clemson. The Tigers come to Lincoln with a 4-2 record after splitting a pair of games, Detroit Mercy (W, 72-44) and Buffalo (L, 41-61), at the San Juan Shootout last week.

• Clemson has struggled offensively early in the season, averaging just 50.5 points per game while shooting just 32.8 percent from the field, including 19.4 percent (12-for-62) from three-point range through six games on the season.

• Junior Aliyah Collier, a leading scorer last year, has only played three of Clemson’s first six games. She has managed 5.3 points and a team-high 6.7 rebounds in limited action. She is coming off her best game of the season with 11 points and eight rebounds in 25 minutes against Buffalo (Nov. 24).

• Clemson has featured the same starting lineup through its first six games, led by 6-2 sophomore post Kobi Thornton, who has averaged a team-high 8.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.

• Danielle Edwards, a 5-7 junior guard, ranks second on the team in scoring with 8.5 points to go along with 3.3 rebounds.

• Destiny Thomas, a 5-10 freshman guard, has 3.7 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.

• Jaia Alexander, a 5-9 sophomore guard, has provided significant contributions off the bench with 7.5 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, while 6-4 freshman post Tylar Bennett has pitched in 4.0 points and 4.0 rebounds while playing a major role inside.

• So far this season, Clemson has just 44 assists on 107 made baskets, including just four assists on 15 made field goals against Buffalo in its last game. The Tigers’ 44 assists have come against 104 turnovers.

Looks like it is getting to be an ugly game. Officiating is awful and they are on verge of losing control of the game per Matt Coatney!

Two technicals on Huskers, including one on Coach Amy Williams.

Tough, Tough Loss for the Husker Ladies, 67-66


They had chances to win it in a tough, almost out of control game. They had their chances to put it away but couldn't close it out missing shots at the end. Game should never have been that close. Game was a dog-fight :Catfight: and Officiating was terrible. FT shooting was a big difference, 22 (88%) for Clemson, vs 12 (67%) for Lady Huskers. :oops:

I don't get the second "T". On the play, the Clemson player obviously hit the Nebraska player in the face with a swinging hand. That wasn't even reviewed and no foul called.

Huskers missed 4 open layups in the final quarter... :Banghead:

I was really disappointed in the Loss to Clemson (imagine how the Team must have felt :Sick:), but after having some time to reflect on it I'm a lot more optimistic now than I was right after the game. :)

It was not a 'Fun' game; it was controversial, the officials let it get away from them; and Matt & Jeff on the radio said it reminded them a lot like Rutgers: that is playing 'Street' ball. :Catfight: The Lead changed constantly and the game came down to the 'Horn' with the ladies losing by a single point.

Despite the loss, the Husker Ladies lived up to their motto from last season, "Grit; NO QUIT!" They had their chances to win, BUT, they're a very young team (2 freshmen starters) and will get better throughout the year. They will easily match the number of wins for the entire last season (hopefully while still in the OOC portion of their schedule); and I think they should at least break-even with a .500 record this season, quite an improvement over the seven wins for all of last season (with the pitiful showing in the B1G/ACC Challenge this year, maybe we'll have an easier time in Conference play this year.
) They should be a pretty formidable Team in the future with continued growth and experience of the existing players, and incoming recruits next year.
