Rain Cancels Series Finale in Tempe

Rain Cancels Series Finale in Tempe: Due to rain in the Phoenix area today's series finale against UC Riverside has been canceled. The Huskers and Highlanders played a doubleheader on Friday, but then had the final two games of the series canceled due to rain.

What's going on in Sports!

Nebraska had a huge win yesterday. It was so exciting to watch them win a close on after it seems they have lost more than their share at the end of games. NU beat Ohio St for the first time in Columbus 58-57. Glynn Watson hit a runner off the board and was fouled with 9 seconds left. He hit the free throw and OSU couldn't get off a quality shot at the end.

NU moves up to 79th in the kenpom computer rankings. If they would win the last four games and then win two in the Big 10, well, who knows? That's a big order considering NU is an underdog in three of the remaining four Big 10 games.

The Top 10 in kenpom are:

1. Gonzaga 28-0
2. Villanova 26-2
3. West Virginia 21-6
4. Louisville 22-5
5. Florida  22-5
6. North Carolina 23-5
7. Kentucky 22-5
8. Virginia 18-8
9. Kansas 24-3
10, Baylor 22-5

Congrats to Bronson Titus who got fifth at the State Wrestling Meet and Preston Melroy who finished sixth. These two kids are from Holdrege

Also congrats to OJ Skaggs who finished second in Class D in the 285 weight division. He is from Axtell.

Indiana's Glenn Robinson III is the NBA's new dunk king. Houston's Eric Gordon won the 3-point contest.

No. 11 Wisconsin beat No. 23 Maryland 71-60 this afternoon.

Nebraska only got one running back commit in the 2017 class in Jaylen Bradley of Bellevue West. The 2018 class will probably include two or more running backs. P. J. Pledger is a four star running back NU is after. He is a former West Hills CA Chaminade College Prep standout who is headed to IMG Academy in Florida for his senior year. He is 5'8" and 185 lbs. He has already committed to play in the Army All-American Bowl for 2018.

The women's basketball team beat Indiana 67-64 today!!!  CONGRATS!!!
