Huskers Have A Perfect Weekend

Wow, what a weekend for Nebraska sports. With the number of sports being played, you'd think something negative would happen, but just look look at the list of accomplishments for Husker teams this weekend: 

- The men's basketball team won on the road at Baylor to finish 8-8 in the conference. That's the first time in 10 years we've been at .500. 

- The women's basketball team won on the road at Stillwater, beating the Cowgirls 82-74. Despite injuries to their best players, the women seemed to have it turned around to make a run in the Big 12 tourney. 

- The baseball team had a four-game sweep over Cal State Northridge. CSN never seriously threatened in any game. 

- The softball team won a pair of games against Wichita State and North Dakota. 

- The gymnastics team beat Iowa State. 

- The soccer team went 3-0, beating Southern Utah, Arizona State and Washington State to move to 3-1-1. 

- Nobody got arrested - the biggest fear on Monday for offseason college football fans. 

- The biggest kudos of the weekend go to the fourth-ranked wrestlers who won their first Big 12 championship, tying with third-ranked Iowa State. Four Husker wrestlers earned individual titles - Jordan Burroughs (157), Craig Bester (197), Brandon Brown (174) and Vince Jones (184). The wrestling title is the first Big 12 title in any men's sport since 2007.
