51 Wednesday at the Bob Devaney Sports

Curtis Moore and Wisconsin's J. J.

Wednesday night's gaiae.
"We probably shouldn't have won," Carr
told Yoder in the Wisconsin locker room
minutes after the game.
Nebraska seemed to have the game in
hand, leading 51-43 with 5:43 remaining
in the game, but Nebraska fouls allowed
Wisconsin to stay alive and close the gap
to 57-51 with 29 seconds left.
Wisconsin had a chance for victory, tut
a last second shot by guard Rick Olson
missed the mark.
"We might have shot the ball a little
early," Yoder said. "Olson was to drive oil
the pick of Shelton Smith, if the shot was
there, shoot it."
A win is a win, Nebraska coach Moe Iba
"Wisconsin came in and played awfully
hard," he said. "We played our first bad
game of the year."
Iba said over confidence almost led to
Nebraska's downfall.
"Any time my center says were going to
win by 30 and my forward ssys were
going to win by 25, their heads are swelled
up," he said.
But Nebraska center Dave Hoppen didnt
think over confidence was a factor.
"We've got a good ball club, not a great
ball club. If we're going to win, we're going
to have to play over our head."
Hoppen was held to a season low 11
points. Curtis Moore led Nebraska scor
ers with 13 and Harvey Marshall added
12. Wisconsin led all scorers with 18.

Women cagers trap Coyotes
Nebraskan coach Kelly Hill finally got
what she wanted: a win.
And oh what a win. Her women's bas
ketball squad steamrolled to a 94-56 vic
tory over South Dakota Wednesday in the
Bob Devaney Sports Center.
The Huskers had been in a victory
drought after losing four straight follow
ing a season-opening victory.
Hill said the Huskers needed a victory.
"We sure did," she said, but "it wasnt
real pretty."
But Hill wasnt complaining. Her Huskers
jumped to an early 20 to 12 lead with
12:50 remaining in the half. The lead was
never relinquished. Angie Miller sparked
the Huskers with 10 first-half points.
But South Dakota coach Chad Lavin
said the Huskers may not have seen the
Coyotes at their best. South Dakota had
played four games in the past week,
including Tuesday night.
"Not to put Nebaska down," he said,
"but our kids were very tired. We missed
some shots that we normally dont miss."
Lavin said the Coyotes missed their first
eight shots of the second half. The cold
shooting partly could be attributed to
Nebraska's defense, he said.
"Our defensive intensity was the differ
ence in the game," Hill said. "We emphas
ized defense the whole week in practice."
Debra Powell led the Huskers with 17
points followed by Miller and Stacy Iroming
with 16 each. Ann Pancoast led South
Dakota with 22 points.
