Nee said he was happy with his
team’s overall performance.
“I’m just really proud of our bas

State is a hell of a basketball team,”
Nee said. “But this is vintage Big
Eight basketball at its best.
“Our kids just never gave up, the
crowd never gave up and we played
40 minutes and found a way to win.”

Chandler’s performance, which
included a game-high 13 rebounds,

i Chandler returned in the game’s
final 20 minutes to score eight points

feeling the effects of the injury.
“I thought Derrick Chandler played
the best game of his career at Ne
braska, hands down,” Nee said. “For
him to have the courage to get hurt,
get banged up, get a couple of stitches
and come back, that’s what it’s all
Nee said he was also proud of the
play of reserve point-guard Andre
Woolridge. The freshman scored

assists in his 14 minutes of play in

“I thought Andy Woolridge gave
us maybe the best minutes of his

Woolridge said he just wanted to

I just tried to contribute,” Woolridge
said. “I don’t know how special it
was, I just tried to go out, play hard

Johnson said he was happy that all

I don’t care if it’s by a half.”
Gymnasts plan to score big, win
in meet with Spartans, Illinois
Huskers looking
for big turnout
By Tim Pearson
Staff Reporter
The Nebraska women’s gymnas
tics learn is going into tonight’s Mas
ters Classic with two objectives: to
win and to score at least 191 points.
Two Big Ten teams, Michigan State
and Illinois, will compete against the
No. 8 Comhuskers in the fifth annual
meet at the Bob Devaney Sports Cen
ter at 7:30 p.m.
“We want to win our own invite
and hopefully score over the 190-191
mark to get rid of the 188 from last
weekend,” Husker coach Rick Walton
Last weekend, the Huskers took
second place with 188.60 points be
hind Michigan State in a triangular
with Northeastern.
Walton said his team could have
performed better if they wouldn ’ t have
been tired. Walton said the Huskers,
7-3 overall and 4-0 in duals, were
looking forward to meeting the Spar
tans at full strength.
“We competed at Michigan State
on the second day of a two-day road
trip,” he said. “The girls are looking
for the opportunity to show them the
kind of team we have.”
The Huskers will likely be without
the services of Kristi Camp for the rest
of the season, Walton said.
Camp, a sophomore all-aroundcr,
injured her knee during warm-ups
before a dual against Iowa State Feb.
Walton said that the loss of Camp
would hurt the Huskers.
“Obviously it hurts when you take
an all-conference performer like Kristi
out of the lineup,” he said. “Our team
depth drops now. She does a lot of
good things for us.”
Walton said Illinois also would
come into the classic fighting inju
“They’ve had a rash of injuries,
and they’re the team that’s been hit
hardest by injuries,” he said. “Last
year they were close with us until the
end, and if they have the same person
nel, they’ll be just as strong.”
A big crowd could give the Husk
ers an advantage in tonight’s meet,
Walton said.
“We’re hoping for a big crowd, but
it depends on the weather,” he said.
“If we get a couple thousand in there,
they’ll help us like a big crowd at a
basketball game.”
