Balanced Scoring Leads NU to 91-85 Win at Minnesota

Isaiah Roby scored a career-high 19 points and all five Husker starters reached double figures as Nebraska won its third straight road game with a 91-85 victory over Minnesota Tuesday night at Williams Arena.

Roby hit 8-of-10 shots from the field and narrowly missed a double-double by grabbing eight rebounds. James Palmer Jr. battled foul trouble to add 19 points, and he filled up the stat sheet by grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out a career-high nine assists. Anton Gill and Isaac Copeland Jr. each scored 12 points, while Glynn Watson Jr. chipped in 10 points.

While the starters combined for 72 points, a total of eight Huskers scored at least six points. Nebraska shot 50.8 percent from the field and was 11-of-23 from the 3-point line, tying their conference high with 11 threes. Seven different Huskers hit a three and Nebraska was also 18-of-22 from the free-throw line. The Huskers' 91 points were their most in a conference road game since 1999.

The win was Nebraska’s first victory at Williams Arena since a 77-60 victory over the Golden Gophers on Dec. 29, 2003. The Huskers improved to 18-8 with their sixth win in seven games, and NU remained in fourth place in the Big Ten standings with a 9-4 mark in conference action.

Nebraska survived a career night from Minnesota’s Nate Mason, who scored 34 points and hit seven 3-pointers. Jordan Murphy added 22 points as the Gophers shot 49.3 percent from the field and hit 10-of-19 from beyond the arc. Despite big nights from Mason and Murphy, Minnesota fell to 14-12 on the season and dropped to 3-10 in Big Ten play.

Nebraska led by as many as 15 in the first half, but it was Minnesota who raced out to a 7-0 lead less than two minutes into the game. The Huskers answered with back-to-back 3-pointers from Copeland and Roby that ignited an 11-2 run. Watson closed out the run with five straight points to give Nebraska its first lead at 11-9.

Nebraska led by four at the midway point of the first half before going on a 14-3 run. NU began the run with five straight points before Minnesota hit a three. The Huskers then scored the next nine points with Gill (5) and Palmer (4) combining for all nine points. Nebraska led 37-22 following the run, but after opening the game by scoring the first seven points, Minnesota also scored the final seven points of the half, using a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Isaiah Washington to trim the lead to 44-37 at the break.

After missing its first three shots of the game, Nebraska shot 59.3 percent in the first half (16-of-27), including 8-of-12 from beyond the arc. Five Huskers had at least five points in the first half, led by nine from Roby and eight apiece from Copeland and Gill. Mason kept Minnesota in the game with 15 first-half points, knocking down four of his six 3-point attempts. Jordan Murphy added 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting, as Minnesota shot 45.5 percent (15-of-33) from the field and 50 percent (6-of-12) from the 3-point line in the opening 20 minutes.

Minnesota scored the first four points of the second half to stretch its run to 11-0 going back to the first half. After trimming the lead to 44-41, Watson scored five straight points to stretch the lead back to eight, and Nebraska led 51-45 at the first media timeout of the second half.

Nebraska led 60-52 before the Golden Gophers used their third 7-0 run of the game to pull within one with 9:55 remaining. Gill halted the run with a pair of free throws before Michael Hurt tied the game at 62 with a three-point play. Copeland then knocked down a jumper, Gill hit two more free throws and Roby and Evan Taylor scored consecutive buckets in the paint to cap an 8-0 run in less than two minutes that gave Nebraska a 70-62 advantage at the 8:14 mark.

Following the run, the Huskers missed their next six shots but played Minnesota even over that stretch to maintain the eight-point advantage at 74-66 with five minutes to play. Nebraska continued to lead by at least five and went up by nine when Taylor saved a turnover and drilled a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to put Nebraska on top 81-72 with 2:33 remaining.

Palmer stretched the lead to 10 with a pair of free throws with less than a minute remaining before Mason knocked down consecutive 3-pointers to quickly cut the lead to 87-83 with 35 seconds remaining. But Palmer knocked down four more free throws down the stretch as Nebraska held on for the six-point victory.

After playing four of its last five games on the road – and going 3-1 in that stretch – Nebraska returns home to host Rutgers on Saturday at 3 p.m. The matchup with the Scarlet Knights will be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Huskers play four of their final five regular-season games at Pinnacle Bank Arena beginning on Saturday.

UNK WBB:Lopers beat Hornets for first time in 18 years

Kearney, Neb. – Nebraska-Kearney's veteran trio scored 60 points and three freshmen came up big as well as the Lopers beat Emporia State, 84-79,Saturday afternoon at the Health & Sports Center.

The streaking Lopers (18-3, 10-3) have won seven straight and nine of 10 to be tied with Pittsburg State for second place in the MIAA. UNK is now 12-0 on the Buckle Court and 11-0 in games decided by 10 points or less.

Emporia (13-7, 8-5), coming off its worst loss in 23 years, has dropped four of five and sees an eight-game win streak over UNK end. The Lopers hadn't beaten the Hornets, a perennial MIAA and NCAA Division II power, since the 1999-00 season.

Like Thursday night against Washburn, Kearney led over the final 30 minutes but still had to fight until the end. Shooting over 50 percent in each of the first three quarters, the Lopers led by as many as 11 points and then sunk 18 of 21 free throws in the fourth quarter to keep Emporia at bay.

"Every win in the MIAA feels good but I think this one, especially for players like McKenzie (Brown) and Michaela (Brown) that have played Emporia several times, this one is satisfying. We've struggled against them in the past and we were able to get one today," said UNK head coach Carrie Eighmey.

The Hornets out rebounded the Lopers 43-29 and tallied 22 of its points off 17 o-boards. Holding UNK to 2 of 10 shooting over the final 10 minutes, Emporia went on a 9-2 run to make it a 71-67 score with 4:36 left.

Reserve freshman guard Adreon Bell (Independence, Mo.) countered 25 seconds later with her second and final bucket of the game, a driving layup that broke down the Hornet defense. UNK didn't make another basket but went 11 of 14 at the line to keep at least a five-point cushion.

"She does some really good things for our team. Defensively, Adreon is really good on the ball and gives us some athleticism at the end. Offensively, she is explosive, can get to the rim and is a good shooter. She has given us a boost the last several games," said Eighmey.

Scoring 16 points off 16 ESU turnovers, UNK ended the day 28 of 37 (76 percent) at the line. Individually, senior guard Michaela Barry (21 points, four assists and four rebounds), senior wing McKenzie Brown (25 points and six boards) and graduate transfer Alyssa Frauendorfer (14 points, three rebounds, and two assists) went for 60 points thanks to 26 of 29 free throwing shooting and a 14 of 36 effort (6 of 10 threes) from the field

"McKenzie was incredible today. I can't say enough good things about what she has done over the course of her career. This year, she's stepped into some roles that maybe weren't in her comfort zone. She's willing to do whatever the team needs her to do," said Eighmey.

In 16 minutes, Bell had five points and hounded the Hornets defensively. Fellow reserve freshman KyleIgh Vaught (Smithton, Ill.) had two rebounds, one assist and drew a foul at a key point in the first half and freshman starting guard Kelsey Sanger (Crofton) joined Brown as Lopers to go all 40 minutes. She tallied eight points, four boards and two assists.

Emporia had four starters and a reserve reach double figures. Starting guard Morgan Laudan (13 points and 11 rebounds) had a double double with reserve post Tiana Moala (10 points, five rebounds and two blocks) having a productive 15 minutes.

UNK heads to nationally-ranked Central Oklahoma on Thursday night. The Bronchos (17-5, 8-5) have dropped two straight and were swept by the Lopers last season.

Hastings College MBB:No.9 Morningside latest victim of Broncos

Hastings, Neb.- Three days after losing 95-65 to Morningside in Sioux City, Iowa, the Hastings College men's basketball team returned the favor, beating the Mustangs 91-80 on Saturday at Lynn Farrell Arena.

Despite committing a turnover on their first possession, the Mustangs (19-6, 11-4 GPAC) controlled the pace of the game and the lead for nearly 13 minutes to a 31-28 lead, but a shot in the paint by Connor Musiel (SR/Lincoln, NE) got the Broncos (17-9, 7-7 GPAC) within one. On the following possession for Morningside, Brody Egger committed a turnover, which Ben Wahlberg (JR/Phoenix, AZ) converted into a shot from beyond the arc and a 33-31 Broncos lead.

With 5:18 left in the half, the Mustangs' Tyler Borchers hit a free throw to make it 33-32. Hastings answered back with a 9-0 run, including buckets by Jake Hansen (SR/Omaha, NE), Zach Kitten (SO/Hastings, NE), Tyler Hedlund (SR/Albion, NE), and was capped off by a shot from beyond the arc by Musiel in his first game back from a minor injury to put the Broncos up by 10 with 3:18left in the half.

Morningside, down by 10, ended the half with their own 9-0 run to make it a 44-43 halftime lead for the Broncos.

Kitten got the scoring going in the second half with a layup, but Morningside's Egger answered with a three-pointer to tie the game up 46-46 less than two minutes into the half. For the next 12 minutes, Hastings and Morningside fought tooth and nail, with the game seeing seven ties and nine lead changes.

Trailing 68-67 with 6:35 left, Drew Callaghan (SR/North Platte, NE) drew a foul and went to the free throw line, making his first shot. The second shot was just off the mark, but an offensive rebound by Bart Hiscock (SO/Bennington, NE) gave Hastings a second chance. Hiscock got the ball to Callaghan who attempted a shot, but could not connect. The Broncos got another offensive rebound that resulted in a Kevin Miller (JR/Lynwood, CA) three-pointer.

Callaghan's free throw and Miller's three-pointer started a 10-1 run that spanned two minutes and put Hastings ahead 77-69.

Borchers got the Mustangs within three of the Broncos with a pair of made free throws with 2:54 left in the contest. With a 77-74 lead, Callaghan took control of the scoring game, getting a dunk and a shot in the paint off a turnover to give Hastings a commanding 81-74 lead late in the game. Hastings saw their largest lead of the game with :15 left, as Hiscock was intentionally fouled and made both free throws. Alex Borchers finished the scoring with a jumper, but to no avail as Hastings bled the clock out to their 91-80 victory.

Leading the Broncos offensively was Miller who scored a game-high 22 points. Hiscock and Wahlberg also got into double-digits in scoring with 13 and 11 points, respectively. Walhberg's 11 points was also a career-high for the junior. As a team, Hastings shot lights out with a .529 shooting percentage (36-for-68). The turnover margin also favored Hastings heavily, who forced 23 turnovers while only committing eight.

The next task for the Broncos is a rematch with in-state rival Doane. The Broncos will look to avenge their January 10th loss to the Tigers (12-14, 6-9 GPAC) when they come to Lynn Farrell Arena on Wednesday for an 8 p.m. matchup.

Hastings College WBB:Farmer Ignites comeback over Morningside

Hastings, NE - For three quarters of basketball, the Hastings College women's basketball team appeared to have no answer for the No. 13 Morningside Mustangs before a huge fourth quarter led to the Broncos 73-72 victory on Saturday in Lynn Farrell Arena.

Morningside took a five point lead midway through the 3rd and pushed it to a 12 point lead at the end of the frame. The Mustangs would then push the lead to 15 points at the start of the 4th before the Broncos began its epic run.

Jordan Johnson would get some momentum going when she would connect on back-to-back 3-pointers as Hastings trailed 61-52 with just under eight minutes to go.

Shandra Farmer would begin her take over a she would pick Grace Meyer's pocket and go in for the layup cutting the deficit to just seven forcing Morningside Head Coach Jaime Sale to call a timeout.

Morningside came out of the timeout scoring four straight point building its lead back to 11 at 65-54 with 6:46 remaining.

The Broncos would once again have an answer as Rachel Jelden found Mackenzie Willicott for the layup. Farmer then connected on two free throws followed by a huge three bringing the crowd to its feet as Hastings was down just four with 5:51 to go.

The Mustangs came right back with a Madison Braun jumper but Farmer answered with another three. But Morningside's Jordyn Moser buried a three from the corner as the Mustangs led again by six at 70-64 with 4:37 to play.

Looking for another answer, the Broncos would get it from Emma Grenfell as she would drain a three from the wing making it 70-67 with 3:45to go.

After trading empty possessions, Gabby Grasso worked the offensive glass getting a put back to go as Morningside led 70-69 with 2:35remaining.

A huge turning point late in the game was after Hastings missed two shots and the Mustangs pulled down the defensive board, Farmer put some full court pressure on which worked as she picked up another steal. She would get the layup to go as Hastings had its first lead since late in the first half.

The Mustangs had yet another answer as Rachelle Housh would get open underneath for the layup as Hastings trailed 72-71 with :34 to go.

Hastings would work the ball into Grasso as she would get fouled sending her to the line for a chance to take the lead with :16 remaining.

Not only was this a pressure situation, but Hastings had struggled all night at the line as up to this point, the Broncos were just 10-for-23 (43 percent) from the line. Grasso stepped up and buried both attempts as Morningside took a timeout with a chance to take the lead.

Morningside had a couple of chances at the end with Mady Maly missing a floater in the lane and then a desparate 30 footer from Sierra Mitchell missed wide as Hastings found a way to win 73-72.

Head Coach Jina Douglas reflected on her teams performance, "I don't really know honestly. I thought we showed a lot of toughness. "Going into half and the third, we were just not high energy, kind of down a little bit and then you could see us just pull out of it," Douglas continued. "I thought Emma was huge for us as she just kind of had the look in her eye as she was going to lead us. Shandra kind of puller herself out of it and i just thought we were tough down the stretch. Gabby made plays when she needed to and we got one stop when we needed too."

Farmer led the way for the Broncos scoring a game high 21 points with 15 of those coming in the final quarter where Hastings out scored the Mustangs 27-13.

Johnson finished with 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting with all her damage being done behind the arc going 4-for-6. Grasso also finished with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooing while Grenfell added 11 points and Willicott finished with 10 points.

Down the stretch, turnovers played a big part as Hastings forced 21 Mustang turnovers compared to just 10 for the Broncos.

Douglas talked about how big of a win this was as we enter the tail end of the regular season, "It's really big, if you look at the GPAC standings where us and Morningside fell, the national rankings along with a ton of big GPAC games to be played, you never know how things are going to fall but we talked about it the last three weeks of the season going 2-0 each week is key and we have started off right so now we have to do it again next week."

Hastings improves to 20-5 (11-5) on the year and will be back in action Wednesday Feb. 7 as Doane comes to town with tip-off set for 6:00 p.m. in Lynn Farrell Arena.

UNK MBB: Big 2nd half leads to win

Kearney, Neb. – The Nebraska-Kearney men's basketball team got scoring from eight different players and shut down Emporia State in the second half to post a 70-57 winSaturday night at the Health & Sports Center.

The Lopers (10-12, 6-7) avenge a December loss to the Hornets (8-14, 3-10) who have dropped seven straight. UNK is now in a three-way tie for sixth place in the MIAA standings.

On "Loper Basketball Alumni" Night, it was the Hornets who came out fast. They never trailed in the first half, led by as many as 10 points and started the game 12 of 18 (67 percent) from the floor. However, UNK closed the half on a 7-2 run and then dominated the final 20 minutes.

"They came out swinging. They scored it pretty consistently in the first half but luckily we went in down only five," said UNK head coach Kevin Lofton. "We shot it a little bit better in the second half which helped fuel our defense. We also got Trey (Lansman) involved a bit more and that obviously helps everything."

The Lopers outscored E-State 38-20 after the break thanks to an even 50 percent (11 of 22) shooting. That included a 5 of 7 effort from the behind the arc and, as an added bonus, 11 of 14 free throwing shooting.

Meanwhile, Emporia shot an anemic 17 percent (5 of 30) in the second half. Going 1 of 10 from the three point line, the Hornets trailed for the last 18 minutes and never made a serious run down the stretch.

Winning the battle on the glass by nine, 42-33, UNK got 15 points, seven rebounds, four blocks and four assists from senior forward Trey Lansman (Harlan, Ia.). He was 9 of 10 at the line and one of two Lopers whistled for four fouls.

"They are doing everything (to stop Lansman). They biggest thing is they are doubling him or they deny him from catching the ball. If he's out on the perimeter and puts it on the floor, he's got the guy guarding him plus the guy in the gap."

Next, seven others were between six and nine points. That large group included York senior guard Ty Danielson (nine points and eight rebounds), Iowa sophomore reserve forward Kyle Juhl (eight points and three rebounds) and Minnesota freshman reserve post Weston Baker Magrath (six points, four rebounds and one block).

"The balance is exciting. Kyle hit a couple of shots, Isaiah made a couple of plays and Weston had a nice tip in when they were trying to come back," said Lofton. "Everyone contributed and now we have to build on that."

Emporia's two leading scorers on the year, guard Brandon Hall (15.1 ppg) and wing Stephaun Limuel (11.5 ppg), were held to 12 points on a combined 5 of 20 shooting. Forward Hassan Thomas tried to make up the difference by tallying 15 points, five boards, three steals and two blocks.

UNK heads to Central Oklahoma (Thursday) and Northeastern State (Saturday) next weekend. The Bronchos and RiverHawks then come to Kearney the following week.

Alvarado Earns Preseason Recognition from NCBWA

Nebraska’s Luis Alvarado earned preseason All-America honors for the second time in 2018 when he garnered third-team status from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association on Monday.

Alvarado, a senior from Puerto Rico, previously received second-team preseason All-America recognition from Collegiate Baseball on Dec. 18. He made the NCBWA third team as a utility player.

Alvarado, a 13th-round pick in the 2017 MLB Draft by the Seattle Mariners, elected to return for his senior season after his success on the mound and at the plate in 2017 helped NU capture the Big Ten regular-season crown. He earned 10 saves in 16 relief appearances as a junior, which tied for the seventh-most single-season saves in program history. Alvarado compiled a 1.72 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 15.2 innings of work in 2017.

At the plate, Alvarado made 57 starts in the outfield in 2017 and hit .283 with 64 hits, 39 runs scored, 12 doubles, two triples, two home runs and 25 RBIs. Over his first three years at Nebraska, Alvarado has a .275 batting average with 136 hits, 23 doubles, five home runs, 50 RBIs and 78 runs scored in 145 appearances.
