Frosted Flakes: Finals Week, From Bobby Pin to a House, and Cilantro

The Husker women are 10-0 and starting to receive votes in both polls

Good Monday morning Corn Nation!

It is finals week, so it will be mostly quiet in Husker sports, except of course, for the volleyball team playing on Thursday for a chance to get into the national championship game.

The Husker women’s basketball team improved to 10-0 for the first time since the storied 2009-10 team. The ladies will have a tough test coming up on Sunday in Drake. The Husker women have started receiving votes in both polls. We will see today if they break into the top 25 in either one. I doubt they will because they’d need to pick up a lot of votes and their strength of schedule has been pretty weak. However, if they keep winning, it won’t be long until they do get some recognition.
