Injuries plague Huskers
By Darren Ivy
The training room served as a sec
ond home for five Nebraska basketball
players during the off-season.
But Coach Danny Nee said fresh
men Cary Cochran and Todd Smith are
the only players who will not be ready
for the season opener on Nov. 16.
“Everything is progressing well,”
Nee said. “I think we are going to be
OK by the time the season starts.”
Cochran and Smith, along with
forward Andy Markowski, guard
Tyronn Lue and center Brant
Harriman all suffered injuries that
required them to spend time rehabili
tating in the training room this fall.
Smith, a 6-foot-3-ineh guard from
Marysville, Ga., had rods inserted in
both his legs on Aug. 26 to help cure
stress fractures he has had since his
senior year of high school.
Smith said it has been hard not
being able to work out with the team.
“I was planning on working on my
game at least IVi hours a day,” Smith
Although Smith has not been able
to work out on the court, he has been
lifting weights and running in the pool.
Smith said he hoped to be shooting
around in four or five weeks and return
to game action by the end of
Cochran, from Minden, Iowa, had
surgery to repair bone spurs and an
avulsion in his ankle Sept 16. The 6-2
guard wore a walking cast from Oct. 1
until Wednesday, when he had the cast
removed. He has not been able to start
But Cochran has not let his injury
get him down mentally.
“Someone put this injury in my
way for a purpose,” Cochran said. “It is
just an adversity test for me.”
Cochran said his goal is to play in
the first part of December.
“Everything is progressing well
for Cary,” Nee said. “We are cautious
ly optimistic though.”
The three other players who were
injured are all playing near 100 per
cent, Nee said.
Lue, a second team All-Big 12
selection last season, suffered a nerve
injury to his lower leg while he was
training with the USA 22-and-under
National Team. He iced his leg too
long and lost feeling in it.
Nee said Lue is playing at about 95
percent right now, but said he expects
Lue to be at 100 percent by the season
Markowski, a 6-8 junior, had
arthroscopic knee surgery in
September to repair a tom meniscus in
his left knee. Markowski started work
ing out with the team earlier this
Harriman, a 6-10 freshman from
Mason City, Iowa, had a screw put in
his finger on July 14. Harriman broke
his left ring finger during die summer
while playing in a tournament in
Nee said he expected good things
from this year’s squad - especially
when all the players are healthy.
“We have a solid nucleus of six
players,” Nee said. “It is going to be an
exciting and up-tempo team.”

Tennis team prepares
for indoor tournament
By Darren Ivy
By the end of the first matches
of the Region V Rolex Tournament
in Wichita, Kan., the Nebraska
men’s tennis team should have a
pretty good idea how the rest of the
matches are going to finish in the
NU No. 1 singles player
Magnus Grahn said how a player
does in a tournament usually
depends on his first match.
“It sets the tone for how you will
play,” Grahn said. “If you come out
and play well it’s a good sign, but if
you struggle then anything can hap
The Region V Rolex
Tournament also presents the
Cornhuskers with another chal
lenge as they will be competing in
the first indoor tournament of the
season. Grahn, who said his style of
play is suited more for outdoors,
said it takes a while to get adjusted
to indoor play.
Husker Coach Kerry
McDermott said the ball travels
faster indoors, which benefits the
big servers. In order to get adjusted
to those circumstances, the team
has practiced indoors this week.
“I think the guys are ready to
have a good tournament,”
At the tournament, the Huskers
will try to do something they
haven’t done in five years - have a
team member advance to the semi
finals. The last time NU had some
one playing in the semifinals of the
Rolex was in 1992.
Grahn and the No. 1 doubles
team of Dinko Verzi and Markus
Bergerheim have the best shot since
they are expected to be seeded in
the top eight, McDermott said.
Grahn said a lot of the top sin
gles players competing in the Rolex
Tournament are even.
“It will come down to whomev
er plays the best this weekend,”
NU will take eight players to the
15-team tournament, but only
Grahn, Verzi, Bergerheim and Jorge
AbosSanchez are guaranteed a spot
among the 64 singles players.
Andrew Wiese, Roshan
Fernando and Joakim Larsson will
play in a pre-qualifying tournament
today with a chance to advance into
the qualifying bracket.
The top 32 doubles teams in the
region also will play, McDermott
A good individual showing
from all the players at the tourna
ment should earn NU an invitation
to the Region V Team Tournament
next weekend in Tulsa, Okla.,
The Region V Team Tournament
is for the top six teams in the
region, McDermott said.
“If we do good as a group of
individuals, it shows we will be a
good dual team in the spring,”
NU tight ends adapt, excel

combination of the two elements.
Carpenter said with all those abil
ities in one game, NU has one of the
best tight end threats in the nation.
“You put us all together, and you’ve
got one heck of a tight end,” he said.
Vershan Jackson has more than the
responsibilities of the tight end posi
tion to deal with. As one of the four
elected captains for the 1997 Huskers,
he must handle the role of team leader.
“You really want to make sure the
players are ready to play the game,”
he said. “It’s been good to talk to the
team before every game and lead
them on the field.”
Vershan Jackson said his main
motto to the team before any Husker
contest is simple and to die point.
“Just get the job done,” he said.
“When you’re out on that field, I don’t
care if you’re hurt or sick or whatever.
It’s time to put your thinking caps on,
concentrate on what you’re doing, be
physical, and get it done.”
Carpenter said he and the two
Jacksons have done that at tight end
“We don’t really need the glory
and we don’t need to catch the ball to
know we’re doing a good job,” he
said. “Everybody on our offense
plays a role in the success, and we’ve
a got a job to do.”
