I’ve been meaning to post something about the Cornhuskers for the longest. This story seems like a great place to start:
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -Their best player is an Alaskan with a medical history as long as a basketball court and who almost quit the sport in high school.
Their coach came up playing the antiquated six-on-six game before setting records at a midmajor and embarking on a coaching career that leaves her down the list of recognizable names in the Big 12, never mind nationally.
Yet here are the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 15-0 and living large with their highest ranking ever at No. 11.
I don’t know if they’re going to be able to stop the Griner express this weekend, but they’ve got my respect.
