(Neb.)-Husker women finishing strong

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 03/27/2013 03:26 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska women's basketball team's journey to the NCAA Sweet 16 has been bumpier this time.

But star point guard Lindsey Moore says this season has been a bigger thrill for her than 2010, when Nebraska was a No. 1 seed after winning its first 30 games.

The Huskers started this season with barely enough healthy players to conduct meaningful practices. The team was so inexperienced and lacking in depth that coach Connie Yori junked her freewheeling motion offense and replaced it with the more structured Princeton system. She also scrapped her favored full-court man-to-man defense for zone.

The sixth-seeded Huskers (25-8) have won 13 of 15 going into Sunday's game against No. 2-seeded Duke (32-2) in the Norfolk Regional.

The game can be heard on KCSR with pregame at noon and tipoff at about 12:30 p.m.
