The Comhuskers open their 1992 93 season 5 p.m. today in an exhibi tion against the Czechoslovakia Na tional Team at the Bob Dcvaney Sports Center. “We’ll play this to win,” Beck said. “We’re going to play this as a regular game.” This will be the Czechs’ second game on their American tour. Beck said the Huskcrs had scouted the Czechs and had been impressed by what they had seen. “They’re a typical foreign team,” she said. “They’re a fast-breaking team, and they’ve played together for a long time.” Beck said the Czech team would give her team a good test on both offense and defense. “They play a soft man-to-man, and they force you to shoot the perimeter shot,” she said. “On offense they like to shoot the three-pointer off the break. “We’re going to have to play pretty well to win.” Tonight’s game will be used as a measure of where the Huskers arc now, Beck said. “We haven’t been practicing that long,” she said. “It will help us de velop a little chemistry.” *'—rhCHusktrswrllshowoff anew motion offense and a full-court press ing defense, Beck said. “We need a highly conditioned team to run the full-court press,” she said. “We’ve put a lot of time into our defense.” Beck is entering her seventh sea son at Nebraska, and she already is the winningest women’s basketball coach in Nebraska history. She led the Husk ers to their only NCAA Tournament berth in 1987-88. Beck said she hoped to return to the NCAA’s this season. To accomplish this, Beck said, her team must blend together. Eight freshmen are on the squad this year, and Beck said that she would also use tonight’s game to give her new players a taste of college basket ball. To go along with those eight fresh men, the Huskers return with All American Karen Jennings. Jennings, last-year’s Big Eight Conference Player of the Year, is one of five seniors on this year’s team. Beck said she hoped the game against the Czechs would help her team play together as a unit. “We need a lew weeks," she said. “The chemistry is just not there right now.” The Huskers’ first regular season game will be against Arizona State 7 p.m. Dec. 1 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Coaches Continued from Page 7 coaching staff for their effort and preparation to give Iowa 'State the win. “They changed up some of their blocking schemes and made some defensive adjustments,’’Osborne said. ‘They played inspired football, played well, and deserved to win the game.” The shock waves of the Huskers’ loss were felt immediately around the conference. When the score was announced in Lawrence, Kan., during the Colorado Kansas game, neither Jayhawk coach Glen Mason nor Buffalo coach Bill McCartney could believe the score. “I thought there must have been a lot of fumbles or something by Ne braska and then later I found out that wasn’t the case,” Mason said. “I thought after looking at the score that the weather was a factor or some one must have gotten hurt,” McCartney said. “Then I watched the game and I was fascinated by it; I take my hat off to the Iowa State coaches and players.” As a result of Nebraska’s loss, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas and Okla homa sti 11 have a mathematical chance to win the Big Eight conference and a trip to the Orange Bowl. “Nebraska is still in the driver’s scat,” Mason said. “I guess Colorado is in the back seat, and we’re in the trunk.” Conference Overall Nebraska 4-1 7-2 Colorado 4-1-1 ^ 8-1-1 Kansas 4-2 7-3 Oklahoma 3-1-2 5-3-2 Oklahoma State 2-3-1 4-5-1 Iowa State 2-4 4-6 Kansas State . 1-5 4-5 Missouri_1-5_2-8 i" ' i Saturday Iowa State at Colorado Kansas Missouri OMahoma State at Kansas Stale In other Big Eight news: •Colorado defensive tackle Leonard Renfro was named Big Eight Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Buffaloes’ 25-18 win at Kansas. Renfro recorded 15 tackles includ ing 12 solos and returned an intercep tion lor a touchdown. •Missouri sophomore quarterback Jeff Handy broke the Big Eight record for passing yardage by a sophomore. Handy has thrown for 2,179 yards this season, breaking the record pre viously held by Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy, who threw for 2,106 yards in 1987. Nebraskans Continued from Page 7 Stewart kicked four field goals in the game to lead the Cyclones to the upset win. He said he was happy he saved his best performance for the game against Nebraska. “1 went down there last year and missed an extra point,” Stewart said. That hurt more than just missing a field goal against somebody else. This is by far my biggest game,” hesaid. If it would have been against, say, a Tulanc, it wouldn’t have been so big, but since it was against Nc~ braska, indefinitely my biggestday.” Senior split end Chris Spencer, who attended Millard South High School in Omaha, said he was not disappointed about notcatching a pass in the game Saturday. If I don t catch a ball in a big win, I’m happy,” he said. “I didn’t need to catch a ball today.” Spencer said a win against Ne braska in his last home game was a great memory. “It was great to finish the home season with a win against Nebraska,” Spencer said. “We saw this as a huge opportunity for us. “They were coming off two big wins, and everybody said we were next in line to be stcamrollcd. We just went out there and played hard.” Stewart said the fact that there were 14 Nebraska players on the Cy clone team helped. “Whenever you play your home state, you want to play well,” he said. “There were a lot of guys here from Nebraska, so it helped out a lot.” Stewart said he wore his Iowa State iackct whenever he went home, but now he would lake even more pride in sporting his jacket around Omaha. “Now I’ll be sute to wear it more,” fie said.
