Rotation gives team near-win
By Trevor Parks
Staff Reporter
A game-time stunt by Nebraska
coach Angela Beck almost paid divi
dends Sunday against Oklahoma.
Beck started Jami Kubik, Anna
DeForge, Tanya Upthegrove,
Roquayyah Brown and Kate Galligan,
and that lineup almost gave Nebraska
its first win since Jan. 29.
And then Beck used five other
players to substitute into the game for
the starting five.
Those players were Pyra Aarden,
Chris Dillavou, Kate McEwen, Lis
Brenden and Tina McClain.
But the Comhuskers, 11-12 and 2
9 in the Big Eight, blew a 16-point
lead in the second half and fell to
Oklahoma 85-83 Sunday before 3,234
fans at the Bob Devaney Sports Cen
ter. The Sooners improved to 16-6
and 8-3 in the conference.
Beck said the rotation system
helped in the first half.
“I thought benching a couple of
starters might help,” Beck said. “In
my mind I just felt we got a pretty
good rhythm out of the first ones. It
helped us stay more fresh.”
But the Sooners rallied and put the
success of the Nebraska rotation sys
tem to bed late in the game.
After trailing 81-79 with 2:02 re
maining, Nebraska pulled within 81
80 bn a McClain free throw.
Oklahoma led 84-80 after Etta
Maytubby, who led all scorers with
24 points, made three free throws
with 16 seconds left.
A 3-pointer by Galligan pulled
Nebraska to within 84-83 with eight
seconds left.
McClain then fouled Sharee
Mitchum on the inbounds play.
Mitchum sank theiront end of the
one-and-one, but missed the second
and DeForge rebounded.
DeForge dribbled the ball up the
court and had a jump shot from the
free-throw line roll off the rim with
two seconds left.
Beck said the loss was another
tough one for the Huskers.
“Our execution in the last 30 sec
onds was horrendous,” Beck said. “It
was a contrasting game, first half
Nebraska played excellent. (Okla
homa) had an excellent second half
compared to their first half.”
Tne Huskers held a 58-42 advan
tage with 17:33 remaining after a
Galligan 3-pointer.
The Sooners rallied with a 14-2
run to cut the Nebraska lead to 60-56.
In that 5:22 span, Nebraska’s lone
basket came from Pyra Aarden and
* the Huskers then went 2:59 without a
field goal until Lis Brenden hit a 3
The Sooners rallied to tie the game
at 72 with 5:36 remaining.
DeForge, who led Nebraska with
20 points, said she could see Ne
braska begin to get nervous during
the Sooners’ comeback.
“We were tensing up as a team,”
DeForge said. “We weren’t playing
to win anymore, I think we were just
playing to hold our lead.”

Nebraska dominates
in-state rival UNO
By Clay Short
Staff Reporter
For the Nebraska wrestling team,
the in-state matchup with the Univer
sity of Nebraska-Omaha didn’t turn
out to be much of a matchup after all.
Guided by three pins, and by virtue
of taking nine straight wins from the
Mavs, the Comhuskers punished the
Division II school with a 36-3 win
Sunday night at the Bob Devaney
Sports Center.
“This is the first time that my team
didn’t underestimate Omaha,” Husker
coach Tim Neumann said. “Our guys
knew they had to wrestle well, and
they did.”
Heavyweight Tolly Thompson got
his 12th pin of the season, Jason Kraft
got his second, and Mike Eierman his
But the Huskers, who improved to
16-3 on the season, lost the first match
of the night. At 118 pounds, fresh
man Brad Canoyer lost a close 6-4
decision to the Mavericks’ Lim Prim.
After the first match, though, the
dual was all Huskers as Nebraska
didn’t lose another match.
“Tim should really be proud of his
guys,” UNO coach Mike Denney said.
“I have to hand it to them, they were
ready to wrestle.”
Junior Erik Josephson continued
his recent dominance on the mat,
beating the top-ranked Division II
167-pounder, Raphael Kizzee, in
double overtime. Even though he has
a 27-5 record, Josephson has not yet
received a national ranking.
“It’s like running into a wall, try
ing to get him ranked,” Neumann
said. “He beat the defending national
champion, and has only lost one match
at 167.”
But Josephson isn’t worrying about
the national rankings.
“They don’t want to rank me,” he
said. “That’s fine with me. If I win the
Big Eight, which I plan on doing,
then I’ll get the respect.”
Steve Baer, Tony DeAnda, Temoer
Terry, Kenny Mbah and Ryan Tobin
all scored decisions against the Mavs.
Baer and Terry beat opponents that
were both ranked No. 2 in the nation.

to the right.”
In addition to Boone’s 21 points,
Erick Strickland added 16 points and
five steals and Terrance Badgett scored
12 points.
Nee, whose record against Iowa
State fell to 9-8, said the key to the
game may have been when Strickland
fouled out 21 seconds into the over
time period.
“We got out of our normal substi
tution rotation because of the foul
trouble,” Nee said. “Strickland gives
us a defensive identity. He hasn’t been
playing well, but, still, we want him
on the floor.”

Iowa State was paced by Hoiberg,
who scored 14 of his team-high 20
points after halftime and played 44
minutes in the game. Center Loren
Meyer chipped in 19 points and 12

Nee said Nebraska would have to
regroup quickly in order to be ready to
play No. 2 Kansas on Tuesday night
in Lincoln.
“We are going 'to need a superhu
man effort on Tuesday,” he said.
“There’s just no breaks in the league.
Once one is behind you, win or lose,
you just have to have the resiliency,
the courage to come back.”
