A Red weekend

By S. Scott
Playing off Bryan's discussion/diatribe/vent about the beatdown of the men's basketball team... Nebraska stuck it to us on more than the basketball court.

The gymnastics team, ranked No. 10 in the nation, posted a season-high point total, but the No. 12 Cornhuskers outdid it, 196.350-195.950. To wit, a Tigers' victory would have represented a momentous occasion, for the Cornhuskers have won 58 straight home meets. Tiger freshman Adrianne Perry placed second in the all-around competition with 39.3 points, a career high.

Also on Sunday, the Tigers' wrestling team, ranked 12th, dropped a dual meet for the second time this year. The No. 5 Cornhuskers won 21-18. Both teams won five matches, but the Cornhuskers had more bonus points to get the win. Ben Askren continued his roll, winning by fall in 4 minutes, 29 seconds against Jacob Klein at 174 pounds. Top-ranked Askren is 33-0 while Klein was ranked third. Askren was the only Tiger to will by fall. Matt Pell improved to 25-2 at 165 with a 3-1 decision against Marc Harwood.
