Women's Basketball: Nebraska vs. Iowa Gamethread

BIG TEN TOURNAMENT QUARTERFINALS

Time: 1:00 PM CT (or approx. 25 minutes after previous game)

Location: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis

Television: Big Ten Network

Radio: Husker Sports Network (huskers.com)

Total dominance.

That sums up Nebraska's 88-56 victory over Northwestern in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament yesterday. The outcome was never in question after the Huskers went on a 24-0 run early in the first half. Nebraska's 54 first half points set a Big Ten tournament record. Jordan Hooper scored 16 of those first half points, and became the first Husker to reach 1000 career points as a sophomore.

Concerns that Northwestern had some sort of magical powers over Nebraska can be put to rest for now. Maybe the women's basketball team can give a crash course to the other Husker sports' teams on how to beat a mediocre Northwestern squad.

The starters sat on the bench most of the second half, and hopefully have plenty of energy to take on Iowa today, a team that Nebraska beat twice during the regular season. However, Iowa's last loss came against Nebraska...way back on January 26th. They've won 9 games in a row since. This could be a tough one.

The Nebraska women's basketball team played well in both of the previous matchups with the Hawkeyes. Both games were fairly close, and the win in Iowa City came down to a 12-2 Husker with just a couple minutes left in the game. In the second matchup, both teams struggled to hit shots, and Nebraska was challenged by Iowa's zone defense.

The Hawkeyes may have a 9 game winning streak, but the Huskers have played at an extremely high level in the last two games. Can they keep it up? Getting a win against Iowa seems to please Husker fans everywhere regardless of the sport. Let's see if the Nebraska Women's basketball team can make it 3-0 against the Hawkeyes this season. Go Big Red!
