The Jayhawks (20-0, 6-0 Big 12)

half, but Colorado guard Chauncey
Billups led a second-half rally that put

During a break in the action, Beck
pulled DeForge aside and talked with
her about her shooting.
“I said, ‘You’re shooting die ball
like a dart,*” Beck said. “She took a
couple of bad shots early. I didn’t re
alize, but I think she might have been
a little nervous about setting the
DeForge missed one more shot but
then was a perfect 9-for-9 shooting the
rest of the game. With 8:38 remain
ing in the first half she stole the ball
and was fouled while making a spin
ning layup. With the basket, DeForge
became the 16th player ircHusker his
tory to score more than 1,000 points
in a career.
The former Ms. Wisconsin Basket
ball, who broke the Wisconsin state
scoring record during her high school
career, said she was excited to eclipse
the 1,000-point marie.
“Consciously, I really didn’t think
about it that much, but it was on the
back of my mind,” said DeForge, who
also had nine rebounds and four as
sists. “That’s maybe why I came out a
little slow, but after I got it, it was out
of the way and things were a lot

“There are definitely four (Texas,
Texas Tbch, Kansas and Colorado) in
the front seat right now and it’s ev
erybody else’s job to mess up the mix
a little bit,*’ Coale said. “Nebraska’s
right on the edge in that. The only
reason I don’t mention them in that
group is because they haven’t played
those people yet.”

“We had opportunities, and we
didn’t convert them,” NU Coach
Danny Nee said. “We played hard, but
we didn’t play smart enough. Our ex
ecution is not where it should be to
win at this level.”
Point guard Tyronn Lue tied a ca
reer high with 30 points — his fourth
conference game with 26 points or
more. Bernard Garner scored 15
points, and Moore added 14 for the
Huskers, who shot 51 percent from the
field to the Sooners’ 44 percent.
But Oklahoma out-rebounded the
taller Huskers 40-26, forced 17 Ne
braska turnovers and hit nine 3-point
ers — including eight in the first half
—to NU’s three long balls.
Senior guard Nate Erdmann sewed
20 of his career-best 34 points in the
first half, and junior Corey Brewer
provided the knockout punch with 15
points after halftime.
“It’s good to see us play well down
the stretch,” Sooner Coach Kelvin
Sampson said. “We stepped up and
won. Good basketball teams do that.”
Nebraska did not play well down
the stretch. After fighting back from
12 down with less than three minutes
to play in the first half, the Huskers
trailed 40-34 at the half and took a
55-54 lead on a Moore bucket and free
throw with 12:05 to play in the game.
But Brewer drilled a 4-foot jump
shot with 9:45 to play, igniting a 6-0
run to put OU on top 62-56. The Soon
ers increased their lead to 69-60 fol
lowing a pair of Brewer free throws
with 5:19 remaining in the game.
Neither team budged until Gamer
scored six points in 38 seconds, trim
ming OU’s lead to 75-71 with less than
two minutes to play. After a Lue turn

free throws before NU guard Alvin

other Lue miss, trimming the lead to
78-75 with 23.8 seconds to play.
Brewer then hit another pair of free
throws, and OU forward Lou Moore
rejected a Lue 3-pointer, taking the

trouble hurt NU. After picking up two
early fouls, Moore played only five
minutes in the first half, recording two
points and no rebounds.

setback at Missouri last Wextoesday.
“I don’t know where that win is
and how we’re going to find it,” Nee
said. “But there’s just certain people
who didn’t play well today. We need
everyone playing well.”
On Wednesday, Nebraska begins a
10-day stretch in which it plays four
ranked foes, beginning with No. 14
Iowa State in Lincoln.
“We are a lot better than most of
the teams we play,” NU freshman
Cookie Belcher said. “But we always
play to their level. We don’t play to
our ability. '
“You keep telling yourself that
you’ve got to bounce back; but it just
gets harder and harder.”
