Nebraska Men lost to Mississippi

March 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Well, the Nebraska men and women have been doing pretty well in their respective post season tournaments. The ladies won their first round game against Xavier for their first NCAA tournament win since the 1990s. The men also won their first round basketball game in the NIT tournament. Aleks Maric didn’t play very well, a good friend of mine told me. He attended the game and was kind of disappointed in the Huskers, despite their victory.

I did watch the Husker women play Xavier yesterday afternoon. The women were hot and stayed ahead about ten points for most of the game, but let it slip a little in the closing minutes. I thought they almost piss it down their leg, but, thank heavens they arose victorious!

I also watched a full days worth of mens NCAA tournament games on Sunday. This is in addition to the games I watched on the opening day (Thursday), Friday, and Saturday. I haven’t watched this much basketball in such a long time. I really do like this time of year, it kind of reminds me of my days in high school when I played basketball. Those were the days! Now that I’m out of high school, been through college (twice, wink wink), and in the working world – I really do miss the days of fierce competition where wars were waged on the hardwood. I used to always jump for my team at the opening tip off, and I do get a little nostalgic when I see other players wishing each other good luck and slapping hands.

Sorry I got off topic for a little bit there! The next games for the University of Nebraska men and women basketball teams are Mississippi and Maryland, respectively. Hold the phones… Nebraska just lost to Mississippi in overtime 85-75. Dang! I was hoping they’d make it far into the NIT since they barely missed getting into the NCAA. Well, I hope the women can at least go a little farther.
