No more moral wins

The Nebraska basketball team through a 9-5 start this year has been -- dare I say -- fun to watch this season.
I know, I know. I just ruined the rest of the season for the Huskers. But really, if you’ve watched them this year in any capacity, they’ve had a different buzz about them.
They scored 100-plus points Dec. 20 against UTSA to win that one. First time they’ve scored more than 100 points since 2005.
Unfortunately for me, I think I’ve watched more of the losses than wins, just the way my schedule has worked out thus far. However, in those losses, I still came away impressed at some level.
Take the Kansas game. I’m still heated about this. Kansas’ Svi Mykhailiuk drilled a three-pointer with 23.2 seconds left to take a 73-72 lead.
The old Nebraska fan in me threw his hands up and said it was over. Not so fast, Mr. Pessimistic.

Reichardt breaks two Class B records

Reichardt also caught 14 touchdown passes, which tied Dan Carey of GICC in 1992. Reichardt finished the year with 1,043 reception yards, despite missing the opening round playoff game versus Omaha Skutt with an injury.

Dave’s Christmas wish list

There’s only a few days left before Christmas, but I’ve already finished my shopping list. It’s now time to hand out those special gifts to the good and bad sports personalities that we all know and love.
The best news of all? That darn pink bunny suit is long gone.
Anyway, I dug deep into my pockets, deep into my credit card, getting those oh-so-thoughtful presents for this year’s group. Here goes:
To Scott Frost, a year’s supply of 5-hour Energy drinks, and a baby monitor.
To the Cleveland Browns, one single, solitary win.
To Jim Harbaugh, a pair of jeans.
To Kelly Hunter, one more year of eligibility.
To LaVar Ball, a one-way ticket to the ‘South’ Pole.
To LiAngelo Ball, a one-way ticket back to China.
To the Kansas City Royals, Eric Hosmer’s signature on the dotted line. Mike Moustakas’, too.
To Tim Miles, a rematch with Creighton in the NCAA Tournament.

Aurora’s hot shooting buries weekend slate

Aurora girls coach Phil Thramer doesn’t want his Lady Huskies to become too dependent on the three-point shot, but as long as it’s falling, Aurora is scary dangerous.
The shot behind the arc was a huge asset for the Lady Huskies Friday night against Columbus Lakeview, where they went 6-10 in the first half and cruised to a 54-26 win.
