Las Vegas, Nev. – Three Huskers made the Cliff Keen Invitational finals, which tied for the most NU wrestlers in the finals since 2013. Six of the ten Huskers who competed at the Cliff Keen Invitational placed in the top seven of their weight class. Three Huskers, Isaiah White (165), Taylor Venz (184) and Eric Schultz (197) all made it to the championship of their weight class.

 

Isaiah White took home the 165-pound title, while Schultz and Venz both finished in second place. Tyler Berger (157) took third place, winning four-straight consolation bouts after losing his quarterfinal match. Mikey Labriola (174) finished fourth and Zeke Moisey took seventh place.

 

As a team, Nebraska finished in third place with 105.5 points, its highest finish since the 2013-14 season, when it finished second.

Soccer Final 4 tonight on ESPNU, with 3 Big Ten teams and a MAC squad playing.  MSU-Akron at 8, Indiana-Maryland to follow.  Kind of like last year's basketball final 4, where you have Indiana-Maryland coming through the strong side, and MSU-Akron emerging from the busted bracket side.

MSU fared better in the National Tourney than they did in the Big Ten Tourney, by making it to the semifinals? Far out.

I think you mean MSU?  MSU lost to Maryland in the QF of the Big Ten tourney.

MSU women's basketball upsets #3 Oregon, in a sport where the top handful of teams are usually substantially better than the field.

This was one of the most amazing coaching performances I've ever seen in any sport.  This team didn't even score a single goal until late in the fifth game against West Virginia.  Yet by the end of the season they were first in the B1G in goals scored.  As Coach Cirovski tweaked the lineup and strategy, they started 4-5-1 and then went 9-1-1 with zero goals allowed in the NCAA tournament.

MSU keeps beating ranked teams at home, some of them soundly, and losing on the road to bad teams.  Considering home court "advantage" in women's basketball you wouldn't expect to see that wide of a dichotomy.
