Huskers pick up the pace
for game against Cyclones
By Trevor Parks
After losing to Oklahoma State 13
days ago, Nebraska women’s basket
ball coach Angela Beck just wanted
the season to end.
Now, after losing to Oklahoma
85-83, losing at No. 3 Colorado 89
76 and picking up their first Big
Eight road win at Missouri, the
Comhuskers may be playing their
best basketball of the season.
The Huskers, 12-13, 3-10 in the
conference, look to win their second
consecutive road game Sunday in a 2
p.m. game at Iowa State. The Cy
clones are 8-17 and 1-12 in the con
Beck said this weekend’s game
could give the Huskers momentum
going into the Big Eight Tournament
on March 4-6.
“Right now at a time that we need
to, we’re starting to play better bas
ketball,” Beck said.
That has shown inNebraska’s scor
The Huskers have picked up the
offensive tempo, averaging 80.3
points in their last three games.
In the first ten conference games,
Nebraska averaged 61.4 points.
Beck said the up-tempo style
helped a team like hers.
“We’ve kind of abandoned the
changing philosophy against some
of the better teams of slowing it down,
and we’ve been pushing up our
tempo,” Beck said.
Another reason for the improved

The 6-foot-4 center scored 21
points and had nine rebounds against
Colorado’s 6-3 Isabelle Fijalkowski.
Against Missouri, Aarden made
14 of 17 free throws and scored 28
points with 11 rebounds.
Beck said Aarden could be a sec
ond-team All-Big Eight selection if
she finished out the season strong
against the Cyclones.
“In the last two games, she’s just
been short of phenomenal for us,”
Beck said. “A lot of it has to do with
the fact that she has gained some
confidence in herself and she’s had
Aarden’s improvement at the free
throw line has made her a better
player. Beck said.
Before making 19 of 24 free throws
last weekend, Aarden was shooting
just-44 percent from the line.
Beck said Aarden had finally fig
ured out the right technique to use
from the line.
And free-throw shooting could
help give Nebraska a sixth-place seed
in the Big Eight Tournament and a
first-round matchup with Kansas.
But only if the Huskers defeat
Iowa State in Ames, Iowa.
All that depends on Missouri,
which is a 1/2 game ahead of Ne
braska. The Tigers travel to Kansas
State and to Kansas this weekend.
The Huskers would win the tie
breaker since the Huskers have beaten
Missouri twice this season.
If Nebraska finishes seventh in the
conference, it would play Oklahoma
in the first round.
The Soonershave beaten the Husk
ers twice by a combined total of three
Beck said her team would be ready
no matter what team it had to face in
the first round.
“We basically have the philoso
phy that we’re tired of being in awe of
them (Kansas),” Beck said. “No one

appears in a regularly scheduled ex

spring training site or one for which
admission is charged.
“In the past, non-roster players
might occasionally play in such games
alongside major leaguers,” Fehr said,
“but it was not the presence of the
non-roster players which made those
games major league exhibition
games. It was the presence of the
major leaguers that did, and this year
the major leaguers are on strike.”
Baseball players and owners, who

on their definition of a replacement

Owners say players won’t be
strikebreakers until the regular sea

Exhibition games begin next
Wednesday, with the California An

major league teams will begin using
their replacement players on March 2
“We’d all be pretty foolish if we
thought it won’t impair bargaining,”
Fehr said the union had every right
to draw the line on exhibition games
because teams charged admission and
because the players wore major league
uniforms and played in their usual
