Monday Flakes: Vintage iPhone, Baseball Sweep, and Nebrasketball Victory

The Husker women finished eight in the Big Ten and have a lot of work to do for their postseason resume

NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Both Husker basketball teams won this weekend (Women’s recap | Men’s recap). Both are playing their way toward postseason consideration (probably not NCAA tournament, but NIT is reasonable).

The women are the #8 seed in the Big Ten and will play Michigan State (the 9 seed) this Thursday.

Baseball earned a sweep over South Alabama (Baseball recap). It was good to see the bullpen show up for the Huskers. The offense looks like it will come together, but the relief pitching was a big questions mark. Will Bolt has a lot of newcomers to the team and it will probably take him a few series to find the right buttons to push. He’s making progress if this past weekend is any indicator.
