“The key to the game was defi
nitely (Nebraska’s) quickness,”
Barry said. “You can’t even compare
Nebraska and Oklahoma. Nebraska’s
speed if a lot greater. That hurt us.”
Neither team scored in the first
two minutes, 43 seconds of the game.
The floodgates opened when Kubik
stole the ball from Nightengale and
fed to Peterson, who hit her only shot
of the night to put NU up 11-4 seven
minutes into the game.
Kubik closed out a 11-0 run one
minute later by hitting two of her own
jumpers. NU led 15-4. The closest
CU got the rest of the way was to 17
10 with 8:45 left. Went hit a 3-point
er 13 seconds later, and the Huskers
were in the clear.
Went came off the bench to score
11 points or more for the third con
secutive game, finishing with 12.
Her fourth 3-pointer gave the
Huskers their biggest lead of the
night at 70-43 with 5:56 left in the

figures, including Kubik, Went,
Schwartz (16 points) and center
Casey Leonhardt, who finished with

“Kubik had her best game of the
year,” NU Coach Paul Sanderford
said. “She was solid on both ends of
the floor. What I liked most about her
tonight was that she smiled a lot.”

team is the main problem. Because of
the number of varsity sports offered by
the university, it is hard for the less

times basketball, enjoy.

Tennis coach upbeat
about Huskers’ lineup
By Rob Petzold
The Nebraska men’s tennis team
will travel to Houston this weekend to
open its spring season.
NU will be playing the University
of Texas-San Antonio and Rice on
Saturday afternoon. Coach Kerry
McDermott is looking forward to
getting the season underway.
“I feel real good about the
upcoming season,” McDermott said.
“Our players have been practicing
real hard, and I feel that we will be a
good team, although I do not want to
make any predictions yet.”
The Comhusker players are also
anxious to start the season. They will
be extremely motivated when they
face Rice. The Owls have beaten NU
the last two years.
“I look for this match to be a
revenge match,” McDermott said.
Senior captain Andrew Weise is
looking forward to getting another
shot at Rice.
“Losing to Rice the last two years
has made our team more focused this
year,” Weise said. “Last season we
weren’t focused going into our match
with them since we played without
one of our key players, Joe Kim.”
Weise feels good about NU’s

expects junior Kai Reike to give the
Huskers an added boost.
“Kai has the ability to be a great
player,” Weise said. “He has been
playing really well lately.”
Reike, who is from Nordhorm,
Germany, is confident about NU’s
chances this weekend.
“I would like to beat Rice.
They’re a very good team,” Reike
said. “They are a few places ahead of
us in the rankings. I think we can beat
them this year.”
The Huskers are going into the

Although Rice is No. 1 on the
Huskers’ hit list, Coach McDermott
is by no means taking the University
of Texas-San Antonio lightly.
“They’re a good, solid team,”
McDermott said. “I expect a solid
match from them.”
