Good Monday morning Corn Nation. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! I know it is way better to write these after a Husker win than a loss.

I have to admit that I was pretty sure we were headed for another gut punch on Friday. But, the Huskers got the one play they needed. The one play that has eluded them for several years. I’m happy for those players. They have worked hard and deserve to enjoy this side of the game.

The Husker women have some reasons to be thankful after their trip to Puerto Rico. They earned two wins and again got the sharpshooting Jaz Shelley we all saw last season. Shelley scored 32 points in the Huskers overtime win vs MIssissippi State. Anni Stewart continues to get better as an all-round player (she has always been a very good scorer) and is earning more time on the floor.

There has been no additional word (that I’m aware of) on Sam Haiby. She made her first appearance of he season vs Tarleton, played six minutes and limped off the floor. She hasn’t been back in a game since. I hope no news is good news - meaning that if she re-aggravated that knee injury in a way that was season-ending, we would have an announcement?

The Husker women play Thursday at 6 pm central at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. Look for a game thread about a half hour ahead of tipoff.
