Tournament win boosts NU
By Jay Saunders
The Nebraska women’s tennis
team took a major step in the right
direction this weekend.
Coach Scott Jacobson said the
Comhuskers were the “unofficial win
ner” of the Titan Invitational in Ful
lerton, Calif., after winning all three
of their matches.
NU dominated Indiana State 9-0
in the first match of the weekend. They
then went on to post a 6-0 (only singles
matches were played) against Fairfield
and closed, the weekend with an 8-1
win over host Cal State-Fullerton.
“TTiat is a big confidence booster,”
Jacobson said. “Anytime you have
success like that you tend to play at a
Doubles play continued to be a
strong point for the Huskers. The No.
1 team of Sandra Noetzel and Jenni
fer Thoste are 7-3 in matches this sea
Even more impressive is the record
at the No. 2 doubles team of Lisa Hart
and Annie Yang. Together the duo is
a perfect 10-0 in matches this season.
“They are playing with a lot of con
fidence,” Jacobson said. “We still need
to work on some things, but these seem
to be appropriate combinations.”
While the doubles play has been
successful for NU, the singles play has
stepped it up a level over the past few
matches. Nebraska did not lose a set
in 24 singles matches over the week
end, marking a streak of 48 straight
Jacobson said most of the Husk
ers’ success can be attributed to the
health of the team. Nebraska has been
lucky enough to avoid injuries so far
this season, which is something
Jacobson said he hopes continues.
“All eight of our kids are healthy,
knock on wood,” Jacobson said. “That
makes a big difference. Any time kids
are there everyday, they are going to

Despite all of the success theHusk
ers have had, Jacobson said playing
outdoors was the biggest advantage to
the tournament in Fullerton. The Ti
tan Invite was the first time Nebraska
has had the chance to play outdoors
since its match at Tfexas on Feb. 23.
“It (winning) is a good confidence
booster,” Jacobson said, “but being
outside is a great thing. Having an
opportunity to play outdoors makes the
game a little different.”

fifth NIT appearance at Nebraska, said
he was pleased with his team’s re
sponse less than a week after losing
to Missouri in the first round of the
Big 12 Conference Tournament.
“I don’t think any coach blows
what’s next,” Nee said. “But I thought
we beat a quality basketball team in a
very high-level game. I thought all our
guys played really well and we had a

A year ago, Nebraska downed
Colorado State in the opening round,
followed by a home win ova: Wash
ington State and a road victory over
Fresno State. At New York’s Madison
Square Garden, the Huskers rolled by
Tulane and St. Joseph’s.
“I feel like we will do that again,”
Nebraska forward Venson Hamilton
said, “because like last year, we want
our seniors to go out with a bang. I
think we are going to go a long way.”
This is kind of how
we felt last year”
NU point guard
A year ago, the Husker seniors
bounced to life in the NIT, led by Erick
Strickland who won the tournament
most-valuable-player award. In NU’s
first-round win last week, seniors Ber
nard Gamer and Mikki Moore teamed
for 19 points in 59 minutes.
Nevada won at Fresno State, 97
86 last Wednesday, to advance into the
second round. The winner of tonight’s
game will play either Connecticut or
Bradley for a spot in the NIT Final
Four, March 25 and 27.
Only one team, St. John’s in 1943
and ’44, has won two straight cham
pionships in the nation’s oldest tour
nament. St. Louis was the last team to
qualify for two straight trips to the Big
Apple, in 1989 and;’90.
Nebraska owns a 6-8 NIT record
away from Lincoln. In games played
on the home court of an opponent, NU
is 3-5, including last season’s wins at
Colorado State and Fresno State.

endary coach Jerry Thrkanian.
Foster has been to the postseason
12 times — including five NCAA
Tournament appearances — as the
coach at Lamar and Houston. This is
the first time he has taken a Nevada
team to postseason action.
Now though, Foster, who is in his
fourth year with the Pack, said his
team must get ready for another bag
game, this time against Nebraska (17
“They are very talented and ca
pable of playing some big games,”
Foster said. “But that’s like any team
at this time of year. What kind of game
they are capable of putting together
and what kind of game you are going
to get, sometimes are very different.”
Foster said he is impressed with
the Comhuskers because they are what
is considered in baseball as “strong up
the middle,” with the combination of
lyronn Lue at the point and 6-foot41
Mikki Moore in the post. Nebraska has
all-star players at all five positions,
Foster said. r ' -
But the Wolf Pack aren’t lacking
stars of their own.
Nevada is led by senior forward
Faron Hand, who averages 19.5 points
and 8.1 rebounds per game and shoots
58 percent from the field. Also in the
arsenal are three good 3-point shoot
ers in guard Jimmy Carroll, forward
Paul Culbertson and senior Richard
Against the Bulldogs, Nevada shot
50 percent from behind the 19-9 arc
connecting on 10 of 20 3-pointers.
Carroll and Brown accounted for
seven of them. For the season, Nevada
is shooting 37 percent from 3-point
Foster said the Wolf Pack will need
that type of shooting tonight against
“If we’re making 50 percent from
3 -point range we have a chance to win
any game,” Foster said. “Nebraska is
a stronger rebounding team than we
are, so we will have to make some long
Nevada plays a similar style to
Nebraska in that both teams will ran
the ball when they can but will also
work the half-court offense, Foster
said. He doesn’t expect tonight’s game
to be a slow-down affair.
But as big a game this is for the
city of Reno, Foster said, he isn’t go
ing to use any psychological tricks on
his team to motivate them.
“We haven’t taken much of an at
titude with them,” Foster said.
