Nelsen joins Husker swim staff
Nebraska Swimming and Diving
Assistant Coach Jan Bidrman has left
the team, and is being replaced by
someone with no previous coaching
Bidrman, who joined the NU
coaching staff in 1991 as a graduate
assistant is leaving the Comhusker
swimming program to accept a head
coaching position at the Calgary
Sports National Center in Calgary,
He will be replaced by Paul Nelsen,
a Lincoln native and former All
American swimmer at Minnesota.
Bidrman swam for Nebraska in
1990 and became a graduate assistant
in 1991. For the past two years he has
been a full-time assistant working with
the breaststrokers. Bidrman coached
Nebraska All-Americans Penny Heyns
and Julia Russell in his two years.
Bidrman was an assistant coach for
the South African Olympic team and
coached Russell and Heyns — who
won two gold medals — in Atlanta.
“He is an outstanding coach as are
all our people,” NU Coach Cal Bentz
said. “Anytime you lose someone out
standing it is a loss.”
Although Nelsen has no coaching
experience, he enters the program as
an experienced swimmer.
At Minnesota, Nelsen was an All
American for the Golden Gophers in
1990,199J, 1992 and 1994. He holds
school records in the 100- and 200
yard breaststroke and the 200- and
400-yard individual medley races.
Nelsen will coach the breaststrokers
In addition to his success in col
lege, Nelsen was close to qualifying
for die 19% U.S. Olympic team. He
finished third in the Olympic Trials
in the 200-meter individual medley.
Bentz said Nelsen brings a great
deal to the Husker swimming program.
“He brings several years of expe
rience at both the NCAA and interna
tional levels,” Bentz said. “His exten
sive background will help our student
athletes a great deal.”
Bidrman, who left Nebraska on
Jan. 26, and Nelsen have been work
ing together for the last month, Bentz
said. Bentz said the transition should
“They are pretty much in tune with
one another,” Bentz said. “Paul brings
in a similar strategy. He will work in
with that group very well.”
Nee wants to see real Nebraska
ISU from page 7
“He’s one of the keys to their
team,” Lue said.
Hie key to Nebraska’s game, may
be whether or not Lue can control the
ball, he said. Lue has turned the ball
over a league-high 29 times in con
“We have a tendency to turn the
ball over,” Lue said, “and it starts with
me first. I’ve been turning the ball over
a lot the last few games and that’s
probably what’s been hurting us..They
see me doing it and then, why not?”
Lue committed a game-high seven
turnovers in NU’s 84-77 loss at Okla
homa and lost the ball six times in the
Husker’s 75-74 loss at Missouri.
But Lue remained confident in
Nebraska’s chances against Iowa
“We can cane in and get a victory,”
Lue said. “We need a confidence

team is ready to burst out and have a

Hamilton, a 6-9 sophomore scored
12 points against the Tigers in Colum
bia, Mo., before putting just six points
on the board against the Sooners.
“The last game, Venson doesn’t
show up,” Nee said. “He plays 27 min
utes and gets two rebounds. If he does
his normal job our chances of winning
the game are improved.”
Hamilton said he knew he had to

Hamilton will go against 6-11 Cy
clone center Kelvin Cato. Cato leads
the Big 12 averaging four blocked
shots per game and ranks first with
51 offensive rebounds this season.
The Huskers are capable of a win,
Hamilton said, but they need to be
ready for a challenge.
“We better show up to play,”
Hamilton said. L

Iowa State gives Beck concerns
BECK from page 7
ference losses have been by a total ol
19 points. On Saturday, the Cyclones
lost to No. 11 Texas Tech 64-58. ISIJ
has lost three straight entering its
game with NU.
Last season at Iowa State, ISU and
Nebraska went to overtime with the
game tied at 68. In the overtime pe
riod, the Huskers raced to a 77-70 lead,
but the Cyclones stormed back and
sewed with just three seconds remain
ing to win 79-77.
“We’re not concerned about the
future,” Beck said. “We’re only con
cerned about Iowa State. We are go
ing to go in there and expect to win.
We expect to play tough and I think
we are going to have a real positive
Although she is not certain, Beck
said, she is entertaining the thought
of starting three true freshmen —
Nicole Kubik, Charlie Rogers and
Brook Schwartz — against the Cy
“I’m leaning toward more of a
guard lineup,” Beck said. “I want to
go with a guard attack and making
them (Iowa State) really extend and
play us on the exterior.
“I do believe when we go to Iowa
State we have to attack. Iowa State
does a tremendous job defensively of
making you play ugly.”
The Cyclones are second in the
conference, forcing their opponents to
shoot just 35 percent per game from
Iowa State Coach Bill Fennelly
said he is pleased with his team's de
fense, which is third in the conference
holding opponents to just 58.1 points
a game. The Cyclones still need to
learn how to win, Fennelly said.
“Our team has been knocking on
the door, but we are still trying to get
over that hump,” Fennelly said. “Our
first step is to go in and be competi
tive. Then it comes down to the bot
tom line of winning the game.”
NU women’s basketball coach
With the goal of winning the Big
12, Beck said, they will not look past
Iowa State to Sunday afternoon’s
home game against No. 12 Kansas.
“Part of failure is when you worry
about other people’s perceptions more
than what you think about your own
self,” Beck said. “Our perception of
ourself right now is we have momen
tum, and momentum falls into place
when you have something to look for
ward to. Right now we have a lot to
look forward to.”
Welder sees ISU dual as big chance
WELDER from page 7

sophomore year 16-4 before suffering
an ankle injury in Qecember. He
fought back to make it the NCAA
Championships, but lost his first two
Welder, a junior from Bismarck,
N.D., finds himself among the three
best wrestlers at 126 in the Big 12
Conference. The Cowboys’ Guerrero
is currently the top-ranked wrestler in
the conference and is No. 3 at 126 in
the country, but Hinson (23-4) de
feated him last weekend.
“They’re both good wrestlers,”
Welder said. “I think I’m there with
them, but I have to prove it. I have to
beat one of them.”
Welder said his style of wrestling
is similar to that of Hinson.
“He’s got an aggressive style, and
I have one, too,” Welder said. “I’ve
got to make sure that I’m always at
tacking and never giving him a chance
The Welder-Hinson match could
set the tone for the rest of the dual.
The Cyclones have a decided advan
tage at 150 pounds and 177, while the
Cornhuskers should see wins from
heavyweight Tolly Thompson and

134-pound junior Brad Canoyer.
The match between Welder and
Hinson is the only one during the meet
where ranked opponents square off.
“Jeramie’s ranked, so we think we
have a chance to win that match,”
Neumann said. “He’s physically readv
Welder said beating Hinson could
be a big step for his chances to get back
“Jeramie is a top five wrestler in
my mind,” Neumann said. “But he has
to take that final step. Hinson has
taken it, Guerrero has taken it, now
Jeramie has to take it.”
