Sixth-ranked Nebraska scored <

third at 189.9.
NU sophomore Misty Oxford wor
the vault with a 9.95, but the Wolver
ines captured each of the other three
events with 10s. Cain won the balance
beam and the floor exercise, and Nikk
Peters also received a perfect score ii
the uneven bars.
Bartlett placed second in the vaul
and third in the floor exercise for Ne
braska, which lost freshman all
arounder Heather Brink to a foot in
jury during her floor routine.
Brink didn’t compete on the beam,
but Nebraska still managed a 49.0 in
the event. Husker Coach Dan Kendig
said he hoped Brink’s injury would not
keep her from competing in
Nebraska’s next meet, Saturday
against Denver in Lincoln.
Kendig said Michigan, which
edged NU for a spot in the Super Six
last season at the NCAA Champion
ships, competed well at home.
“They’re a good team,” Kendig said.
“They were definitely better than we
were today. But I’m looking forward to
meeting than on a neutral floor. I re
ally believe that down the road, they
can’t improve as much as us.”

to Kubik in NU’s run.
What was better than McClain’s offense was
her defense on Thompson. Thompson finished
the game with 20 points—one below her sea
son average — but she only connected on 8 of
19 shots.
McClain was quick to credit her teammates
for their defensive success in limiting the Red
Raiders to 38 percent shooting for the game.
“All week long the coaches have told us to
beat a team like Texas Tech, you have to have a
total-team effort,” McClain said. “I’ve been
working really hard in practice to have an all
around effort.”
McClain extended Nebraska’s lead to 11
after making a field goal with 14:02 left, but

second-half lead against Kansas started enter

“We tried to keep those thoughts out of our
mind,” said Anna DeForge, who finished with
a double-double scoring 14 points and grab
bing 11 rebounds. “We let the Kansas game
slip out of our hands but we weren’t going to
do that today.
“We needed to get back on track and we
needed to be tough at home, and it’s obvious
we did that.”
After McClain’s field goal NU made only
three free throws over the next seven minutes
as Tech cut the lead to 47-43 with seven min
utes remaining.

was sprinter Tom Fish. Fish matched
his season-best (21.56 seconds) with
a victory in the 200-meters. Fish also

No team scoring was kept during
the Husker Invite. For NU, the invite
was the last tuneup before the Big 12

Kubik hit two free throws with 54 seconds
left to put NU in front for good. Nebraska made
6 of 7 free-throw attempts in the final minute,
and forced Texas Tech into two turnovers as
the Huskers preserved the victory.
“First of all the monkey is off our back in
that we will be riding high now,” Beck said.
“It’s a difference maker for the (NCAA) Tour

and us beating them legitimizes our program.
“After having back-to-back losses it would
have been huge to have lost here.”
