From Staff Reports
In Wednesday’s spring practice, the
Nebraska football team used the cold
weather to warm up for the fall.
Cornhuskcr coach Tom Osborne
said that the team’s offensive execu
tion had improved since the first scrim
mage of the spring last Saturday. De
spite injuries at I-back, Osborne said,
the Huskers have worked out well.
After battling the flu on Monday,
No. I I-back Ahman Green looked
better Wednesday and played well in
practice, Osborne said.
Two I-backs who were injured dur
ing last Saturday’s scrimmage missed
their second straight practice.
No. 3 I-back James Sims’ pulled
right hamstring continues to hold him
out of practice. Reserve I-back Chad
Eicher also missed practice because of
an injured knee.
Top tight end Tim Carpenter is still
out with a sprained knee, and No. 2
Will linebacker Ryan Terwilligcr was
held out with a pulled muscle in his

probably wouldn’t return to the field

hitters, including Damon Minor
twice. Minor leads the Big Eight
with 11 home runs and 50 RBI
while maintaining a .374 average.
“The kid pitched a heck of a ball
game,” Oklahoma coach Larry
Cochell said. “It all starts on the

fastballs because his breaking
pitches were hung up in the gust
“I was just spotting the fastball
and mixing in the change every now
and then,” Driscoll said. “Working
in and out, that was the main thing.”
But the gusting wind may have
aided Driscoll and Oklahoma
starter Joe Victery by preventing a
few deep fly balls from leaving the

In his 10 previous outings for
Nebraska, Driscoll was used in re
lief situations only and had allowed
12 earned runs in 13 1/3 innings.
Driscoll said he was used prima
rily as a starter at Neosho Commu
nity College (Kan.) in 1995, when
he posted a 7-2 record with a 2.52
camcd-run average. He was named

“At first I had a hard time reliev
ing,” Driscoll said. “Then I tried to
take it as a start in the fifth inning.
It’s a little different, but I’m getting
used to both roles now.”
Driscoll said the win was an im
portant one for the Huskers, who
had fallen into last place in the Big
Eight before the win against No. 21
“Especially after last night, I was
really happy to see the way our team
came out,” Driscoll said. “We were
a totally different team today, and
that’s what we need to sec. But we
still have a long way to go.”

Paul Aaron of Great Plains Media
Inc. has called a press conference for
11 a.m. today in Lincoln to announce
the Lincoln affiliates for the new Ne
braska Sports Network, which will
begin broadcasting in August.
On Monday, Aaron announced that
KKAR and KDGE in Omaha would
be the Omaha affiliates for the Ne
braska Sports Network, replacing
KFAB, which had held exclusive rights
to Comhusker football and basketball
KLIN (1400-AM), the current net
work affiliate in Lincoln, is expected
to remain the city's AM affiliate. The
rest of the network stations also will
be announced today.

game. Iowa State fell to 10-10.
The second game was canceled be
cause of cold weather.
Husker sophomore Angela
Blackwood picked up the win to im
prove her record to 9-3, while Nease
took the loss to even her record at 3-3.
“She hit it a ton,” Husker coach
Rhonda Revelle said.
Other than Viola, the happiest
player on the field Wednesday was
Husker second baseman Heather
Hanselmann, who was playing in
her first game since breaking her fin
ger against Texas-Arlington on Feb.
18, had a hit in her first-inning at-bat
to score Viola.
But in the seventh inning,
Hanselmann misfielded a ground ball
hit by Nease that would have given the
Huskcrs a third out and a 7-6 win. In
stead, Iowa State’s next batter, Kally
Hogan, hit a double to score Nease and
send the game to extra innings.
“(Hanselmann) came up to me later
and just gave me a big hug and said,
'Thank you! Thank you!,’” Viola said.
Because Hanselmann is still play
ing with a broken finger and because
of the cold weather, Revellc said she
could not blame Hanselmann for the
Besides, Revellc said, the Huskcrs
had built a seven-run lead by the bot
tom of the fourth inning, but then gave
up seven runs in the next three innings
while committing four errors to let the
Cyclones back into the game.

When Reive competed on the still
rings in the Huskers’ March 23 dual
with No. 1 Ohio State, he competed
for the first time since August 1994.
The 17-month hiatus was the long
est time he had spent away from gym
nastics in his life. When he was 3 years
old. Reive began to practice tumbles
and handstands at a local club.
Since then, he has been active in the
sport every year. Being out of compe
tition for so long made his return even
more special, Reive said.
“It was great,” Reive said. “But I
still am only about 55 or 60 percent at
the most. I’m anxious to get back to
form and show people what I can do.”
When Reive is completely healthy,
Allen said, he could be th<f best gym
nast in the nation.
But all of the praise from Allen and
even the comparison to Hartung —
who led Nebraska to four straight na
tional titles — have not caused Reive
to lose his focus.
“That’s cool,” Reive said. “Jim had
a lot of pull around here. But I guess
I’m just trying to do what I can for the
Even though Reive isn’t 100 per
cent healthy, his presence still will help
the Huskcrs in many ways, Allen said.
“With J.D. in the lineup, our whole
team’s confidence is better,” Allen said.
Reive said he hoped to be healthy
enough to compete in the U.S. Nation
als in June, when the top 14 gymnasts
advance to the Olympic Trials. The top
eight at the trials will represent the
United Statc,s.at the 1996 Olympics in

pic dream in the back of his mind.
Reive said he had only one goal for
the rest of the season.
“Right now. I’m just trying to go
out and hit my routines and stay in one

to the starting lineup in parallel bars

Nebraska travels to Santa Barbara,
Calif., for the Mountain Pacific Sports
Federation Championships on Satur
day. The Huskers then will play host
to the NCAA West Regional at the Bob
Devancy Sports Center on April 13.
The NCAA Championships will be
held in Stanford, Calif., April 25-27.
“We’re down to the nitty gritty of
the season now,” Allen said. “I’m tired
of showing people we can compete. I
want to win. J.D. is the kind of kid who
can make about a 2 1/2-point differ
ence for us.”
