,NU loses ugly at KSU
KSU from page 7
Huskers shot just 33.9 percent from
the field, also a season low.
“I thought they were good
lodes,” Nee said. “We had a lot of
shots that we woe capable of mak
ing, shots that have to go in.”
Following a lukewarm start to
the second half in which NU scored
eight of the first 10 points and held
the Wildcats without a bucket for
nearly five minutes, the Huskers
And this time, it cost them the
game. On three occasions midway
through the final period, Nebraska
led by three points but failed to con
vert opportunities to extend its lead.
A four-point run sparked by for
ward Troy Piatkowski tied the
game at 50 with 4:16 to play.
But after a timeout, NU point
guard lyronn Lue committed one
of his six turnovers and KSU scored
the next six points to take a com
manding lead with 37 seconds to
Piatkowski, who scored his first
five points of the Big 12 season on
Monday, then nailed a 3 to trim
KSU’s lead to 56-53, but three free
throws by Marie Young and Aaron
Swartzendruber iced the Wildcat
“We really wanted to win,” said
Young, who led Kansas State with
14 points and eight rebounds.
Nebraska, which plays at
Northern Iowa on Thursday, scored
a season-low 53 points and com
mitted 22 turnovers, the ninth
game this season in which NU has
lost the ball 20 times or more.
Lue led the Huskers with 15
points on 5-of-l 6 shooting, includ
ing 2-of-l 0 from 3-point range, but
the sophomore dealt only one as
sist in 40 minutes.
Mikki Moore added 11 points
and Hamilton, who fouled out with
two minutes to play, scored 13.
Larry Florence failed to score in six
minutes, and Alvin Mitchell didn’t
play for the first time this season.
“I thought We played like
horseshit,” Nee said. “I thought the
effort was there. I don’t think
they’re trying to play bad. They’re
trying, but they’re just not accom
plishing anything at all.”
Hibler jumps over
hurdles on his own
By Sean Lewis
'This winter, Willie Hibler is a man
without a team.
For the hurdler on the Nebraska
men’s track and
field team, that is
hurdle for him to
last season, he still
has one outdoor
So now, the three-time indoor All
American from Cleveland raceson his
own and with same impressive results.
In the Nebraska Open Jan. 25,
Hibler—competing as an unattached
runner — set a Bob Devaney Sports
Center track record with a time of 7.74
seconds in the 60-meter hurdles.
The time qualified him to line up
in the starting blocks against some the
best hurdlers in the nation at the USA
Track and Field Championships in
Atlanta later this month.
Hibler still trains with the team,
even though his schedule doesn’t al
ways allow it.
“My schedule is kind of odd,”
Hibler said. “Sometimes I have to train
on my own with just me and the coach.
When I get time, I do train with the
team. It’s better when I train with the
team because I have somebody to run
with and push me and stuff like that.”
Training with the team has kept
Hibler in shape for NU’s outdoor sea
son, and will give him the chance to
prepare for the USATF meet. He said
competing against the nation’s elite
will not scare him from going out and
running his best.
“I think I have the potential to
place very well,” he said. “I don’t
know how everyone else is looking
right now, but I’m going to go out
there and do the best I can.
“Every time I run, I run to win and
1 can’t go in there thinking that I’m
going to be second best or the lower
part of the totem pole. I have to go
and believe that I’m going to be up
there with everybody else, whether
they’re world champions or Olympic
Billy Maxwell, NU sprints and
hurdles coach, said he does not have
an idea how well Hibler will perform
because Hibler has raced only one time
He s already nad a mark good
enough to get into the meet, so that
should give him a better idea on what
Willie needs to do in order to get
ready,” Maxwell said.
Hibler, an All-American in the
110-meter hurdles, is not inexperi
enced at running big meets.
Last summer, he ran in the Olym
pic trials in the 110-meter hurdles.
He would like to continue running
after his NU career ends in spring, he
said, because he wouldn’t be complete
without the sport.
“After I leave here, I can get a good
trainer — a person who really knows
their stuff and can help me out,” Hibler
said. “Maybe I’ll mature more physi
cally and get a little faster. Next thing
you know, I might be up at the top of
According to Hibler, it is tough to
prepare for meets like the USATF.
Physically, he said, you can practice
all you want, but there are other fac
tors like the crowd, pressure and ex
citement of the meet.
“There’s really nothing that can'
prepare you for it, except that before
you go out there you run the race in
your head, mentally,” Hibler said.

quick and has the intangibles it takes
to become great players.
“Every one of them is fast,” Walker
said. “They all have a chance to play.
They’re good kids and they bolster an
already strong area.”
Another area Walker has strength
ened is the team’s schedule.
Walker has beat busy scheduling
top-notch teams for the Huskers to
play in the spring and the fall.
After a 1-0 loss to Portland in the
NCAA Tournament ended NU’s
storybook season last year, Walker said
scheduling quality opponents was a
good way to measure the success of
Walker and NU Assistant Coach
Marty Eventing said the program —

able to accomplish that goal during
NU’s spring schedule.which starts

Santa Clara, 16th-ranked Duke and
No. 19 Virginia.
Nebraska has also scheduled an

“We’ve definitely accomplished
our goal for the spring games,” Walker
said. “These teams are perennially in
the top 10.”
The Huskers open the 1997. slate

Walker thinks is a potential top 25
The regular season also features
five opponents that finished the sea

which lost 3-2 in sudden death over

Of the five top 25 teams, die Husk
ers play host to 15th-ranked San Di
ego and No. 24 Kentucky.
“San Diego is traditionally one of
the top teams on the West Coast,”
Walker said. “Kentucky is also a very
good team. They're very talented.
Hopefully, it will prepare us.”
The Huskers are familiar with
Duke and 17th-ranked Vanderbilt,
both of whom NU will play on toe
road. NU beat Duke twice, 3-1 and 3
