Monday Flakes: WNIT Hopes, Cocaine Cat and Corned Beef

The Husker women's basketball team gets a shot at postseason play

Syndication: Journal-Courier Alex Martin/Journal and Courier / USA TODAY NETWORK

The Husker women were an easy pick for the WNIT. They were the top Big Ten team to miss out on the NCAA, which gives them the autobid. I was hoping the men could squeak in, but the NIT committee didn't see what they wanted.

How do you think the ladies will do? I think they have at least a couple wins in them if they play like they did most of the season. They are in a strong position to host at least a couple of games, which helps the cause. I watched my Jackrabbits run away with the WNIT last year - it would be fun to see the Huskers do the same.
