Corn Flakes: Basketball Season Is Over....

Cougars Clip Huskers - - Nebraska Athletics Official Web Site

Brigham Young got a series of three-pointers from unexpected shooters and survived a furious second-half rally, as the 12th-seeded Cougars advanced to their second NCAA Sweet 16 by beating No. 4 seed Nebraska, 80-76 on Monday in the second round of the 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament at Pauley Pavilion.

The Nebraska women's basketball team lost last night in the second round of the NCAA tournament. It was a disappointing ending for Jordan Hooper, who ends her career as one of the greatest to ever play for the Big Red. One more win and they would have gotten the chance to play tourney games in front of the home crowd at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

That sucks.

It has been a great year of Husker basketball, possibly the funnest season I can remember.
