David McGee

The Husker Women's Basketball team plays against the Maryland Terrapins in the women's version of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Just like the men, the women will be playing two days of inter-conference games between the Big Ten and ACC Conferences.

Tonight #21 Nebraska will take on #11 Maryland at the Bob Devaney Center in front of a national television audience as the game will be shown on BTN.

Following from the Husker press release:

Maryland, which advanced to the 2012 NCAA Elite Eight, returns four starters from a team that went 31-5. The Terrapins feature national player-of-the-year candidates Tianna Hawkins, Alyssa Thomas and Laurin Mincy. Nebraska adds a pair of national player-of-the-year candidates in Lindsey Moore and Jordan Hooper, putting five of the nation's top-50 players on the floor at the Devaney Center.

Probable Starters:

#21 Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-1)
3 - Hailie Sample - 6-1 - So. - F

THIS IS YOUR OPEN THREAD FOR THE GAME.

I HOPE YOU PLAN ON SUPPORTING THE HUSKER WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM AS MUCH AS YOU WOULD ANY OTHER AND YES, THAT MEANS AS MUCH AS FOOTBALL EVEN IF THEY DON'T FEED YOUR MALE TESTOSTERONE-BASED EGO.

MAYBE YOU'D GET MORE DATES IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTENED INSTEAD OF JUST PRETENDED ONCE IN A WHILE AND GET OFF THE COACH AND GET A JOB YOU FAT LAZY SOB.

NOT RIGHT NOW, AFTER THE WOMEN'S GAME DUMMY.

AND NOW FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER......
