ligence and discipline to achieve his
goal of being die best to ever play
the game.
Woods finished with an 18-un

Injuries hamper Husker scrimmage

Brown said, is one of the fastest he
has ever seen.
“We have such speed at receiver,”
Brown said. “All three receiving po
sitions — those guys can go. I think
Scott Frost is going to have a real good
year throwing the ball. I’m hoping to
be in the 60-percent range in comple
tion percentage.”
Frost completed two passes in six
attempts while rushing five times for
14 yards and a touchdown. Last sea
son Frost completed 52 percent of his
passes for 1,440 yards — the ninth
highest season total in Nebraska his
The Huskers lost their top two re
ceivers from last season—senior split
end Brendan Holbein and wingback
Jon Vedral — but Brown said this
year’s squad should still have a solid
passing game.
“I think the passing game has a
chance to be very good,” Brown said.
‘We’re expecting it to be good.”
Starting wmgback Shevin Wiggins
led the receivers on Saturday catch

There’s no question that offensive football
takes timing, more practice and more

offense, Wiggins said, still needs
“We have a lot of improving to do,”
Wiggins said, “but by the time fall
comes around, I’ll think we’ll be
ready. We made a little improvement
today, but I think we have a long way
to go.”
Wiggins, a 5-foot-ll, 190-pound
junior from Palmetto, Fla., said he was
glad the team was able to practice out
side despite the snow. The AstroTUrf
in the Cook Pavilion is too “sharp,”
he said.
Osborne said he couldn’t remem
ber the last time that Lincoln received
so much snow during spring drills.
“We’ve had a real strange weather
pattern all week,” Osborne said. “But
there is nothing we can do about it.”
Other injuries suffered in
Saturday’s scrimmage include:
wingback Sean Wieting, bruised
shoulder; tight end Dorrick Roy, in
jured ankle; fullback Joel Makovicka,
sore shoulder; split end Kenny
Cheatham, sore back.
All should be back in practice on
Monday, Osborne said, except

TENNIS from page 7
encourages them to give it their all.”
One player who has been improv
ing lately is Hart. After struggling
earlier this year, Hart (12-8) has come
back in a big way. The junior from
Sunnyside, Wash., won both of her
singles matches this weekend, includ
ing a victory over Baylor’s top player
Hart has also been a big force in
doubles. She teamed with freshman
Gina Pelazini at No. 2 doubles against
Missouri. Jacobson said the teaming
Pelazini up with Hart is a good fit be
cause of how Hart carries herself on
the court.
“She exudes confidence in others,”
Jacobson said. “When you are play
ing with someone who believes whole
heartedly in themselves, you start to
believe and play at a higher level.”
The weekend split put the Husk
ers right back whore they were in the
Big 12 conference race. At 4-5 in the
league with two conference duals re
maining before the Big 12 meet in two
weeks, Jacobson said NU needs to pull
things together beginning with a
match at Kansas State on Tuesday.
Even though the Wildcats are 2-6 in
the conference, Jacobson said he is
expecting a catfight.
“They are better than their record,”
Jacobson said. “They are real strong
one through four. We will need to have
a great day when they step on the
