First, I’ll start with softball from yesterday. NU junior Robin Mackin pitched four hitless innings and had three hits to help the Husker softball team complete a doubleheader sweep of Nebraska-Omaha with a 6-2 win in game two last night. The Huskers took the first game 12-1.
I’d like to spotlight some of the coaches at Nebraska-Omaha. It’s been a month of milestones. First on September 19th, Rose Shires, the volleyball coach picked up her 400th career win. The same day, Dan Klosterman, the Mavs soccer coach won his 175th game and a week before that, Pat Behrns, the Mavs football coach notched his 150th career win. Congratulations to all three coaches.
Former Husker pitcher Brian Duensing won his fifth decision in a row with the Minnesota Twins, their 2.5 games behind Detroit. It’s a tight race in the central division. Duensing and the Twins are in Kansas City this weekend.
Tomorrow night, the Wayne State Volleyball team goes for their school record winning streak of 15 straight matches. They’ll travel to South Dakota to play Augustana.
Dana Altman’s Creighton Bluejays men’s basketball squad and the entire Missouri Valley Conference will take part in ESPN’s Bracket Buster coverage. Creighton will host a game this February. The Jays are 4-2 all-time in Bracket Buster matchups.
