Former Nebraska Cornhuskers star leads his team to a gold medal. The NU soccer team got back on the winning side of the tally and more.
His career with the Nebraska Cornhuskers might be over, but Trey McGowens is repping his former school quite well. McGowens earned a gold medal on Sunday, leading his Team USA to a gold medal in the FIBA 3×3 U23 World Cup on Sunday in Lublin, Poland.
Not only that, but the former Nebraska Cornhuskers star was named MVP of the Tournament and named to the Team of the Tournament. It was hardly surprising considering that the United States completed a 7-0 tournament with three wins on Sunday.
McGowens played alongside his fellow NBA G League players Matthew Hurt, Jalen Lecque and Bryce Wills on the gold medal-winning squad. The former Husker led all tournament players with 54 points during the competition.
Can Nebraska football bounce back?
After the loss to the Michigan Wolverines, head coach Matt Rhule talked a lot about how he thinks his team will respond. He mentioned that Nebraska Cornhuskers fans are going to see the “real” team on Friday when they travel to Illinois.
However, as Sam McKewon writes, the Huskers have a shaky past when it comes to bouncing back from losses. That past has been demonstrated even this year.
After they lost to Minnesota to open the season, they went out and looked quite a bit worse against Colorado. If that particular pattern held, things could get scary against an Illini team that just doesn’t look very good.
Trey Palmer posts highlight on Sunday
Former Nebraska football star Trey Palmer announced he woke up angry on Sunday morning. Then he went out and scored another touchdown for the Tampa Bay Bucs.
The former Nebraska Cornhuskers star hasn’t put up big numbers, but he’s already found the endzone twice in four NFL games. That’s more than a lot of rookies could boast. Overall, Palmer has 6 receptions for 42 yards and those 2 touchdowns so far this year.
Nebraska Cornhuskers get back in win column
The Nebraska soccer team kicked off October with a road trip to take on the Northwestern Wildcats. The Huskers faced a fierce battle going up 2-0, but the team watched as Northwestern came back to tie it up with under eight minutes to play.
However, a quick response by the Nebraska Cornhuskers put the game away, getting the 3-2 win. The MVP for the team was once again Eleanor Dale, who scored two more goals to drive her season total up to 17. That performance allowed them to improve to 8-2-3 on the year.
