COLLEGE BASKETBALL: MAR 05 Big Ten Women’s Tournament - Iowa v Nebraska

The Husker women are going dancing! They are the #8 seed in the Witchita region. I was hoping for a #6 or #7 seed. With the #8, Nebraska has a tougher first round game and if they make it past Gonzaga, they have a #1 seed up next.

But I shouldn’t think that far ahead. Right now, let’s hope for the first NCAA tournament win under Amy Williams.

Next year, I’ll get greedy.

On a different note...

University of Nebraska (Kearney) are the national champions!! The wrestling team took home the Division II championship this weekend. Yay Lopers!
