Hansen comes up clutch for Hornets

Not all heroes wear capes, at least Brodi Hansen doesn’t.
He wasn’t at the top of any stat category at game’s end, nor was he a starter for the Hornets. But in the clutch, the junior came through to help the Hornets win.
Hansen’s putback lay-up as time expired fluttered through the twine as the Giltner bench erupted in celebration, defeating Kenesaw on the road 42-41.

Lady Huskies finding a groove with winning streak

As Aurora coach Sara Partington described it, the Lady Huskies are starting to gel.
“Everyone is figuring out their role on the team,” she said. “We talked to the bench about stepping up a bit more and needing more of an offensive threat. We did that tonight (at Central City). Things are falling together.”

Enjoy the show while it lasts

There’s a once-in-a-generation event happening in the area that we better start enjoying while it’s here.
Watching this Aurora boys basketball team is something I can’t really compare to. Sure, I don’t have the wealth of knowledge of a Dave Bradley, but I’m willing to bet he’d agree on this. This Husky team is an all-timer.
It’s a team with big personalities that mesh together as well as I’ve ever seen. The team basketball displayed by the Huskies is like watching a well-rehearsed show on Broadway. Everyone knows their role, everyone accepts that role and works tirelessly to perfect that role when it matters most.

Signing day looms for NU

For Husker sports fans, the past week and a half have been a roller coaster of highs and lows.
The low certainly came in the form of a Music City Bowl loss to Tennessee, a team full of potential NFL players.
The Huskers, at times, certainly looked like a JV team, but that is tempered somewhat with the loss of Tommy Armstrong Jr., Jordan Westerkamp and Nate Gerry, admittedly the Huskers’ three best players.
Still, the physical match-up was glaring.
On the other end of the spectrum, Nebraska’s basketball team went from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, seemingly overnight, sweeping Indiana and Maryland, both on the road.
A double overtime home win over Iowa put Tim Miles’ crew in rare first place company, a spot this program is not at all familiar with. A disappointing Sunday home loss to Northwestern certainly brought this state back down to earth.
