Hey Sky fans! It’s conference tournament time! I have had a great time out and about seeing so many great games and players. Let me give you a quick rundown of my travels.
The Big Ten Tournament
This tournament started out so “normal” the first day I was there. All the higher seeds rolling along – then it just went crazy… Nebraska knocks off #2 seed Ohio State by 15, Purdue eliminates #1 seed Penn State and then Purdue and Nebraska go to double OT to decide the Big Ten Championship! Great, Great games!
The double OT final will be on ESPN Classic very soon I’m sure. Purdue dominated for much of the first half and led by 11 at one point, but Lindsay Moore made an underhanded, off-balance basket for the Huskers in the closing seconds of the first half to tie the score at 27 at the break. That gave Nebraska great momentum heading into the locker room.
Then, with the score tied at 56 in the final seconds of regulation, Courtney Moses drove to the hoop, but Hooper blocked her shot and got the rebound, giving Nebraska 1.3 seconds to win it. But, Hooper missed a heave at the buzzer forcing overtime.
