[00:00:00.150]Back at Pinnacle Bank Arena
[00:00:01.410]here in Lincoln, Nebraska.
[00:00:02.910]After one half of play, it's the Huskers 34,
[00:00:06.000]and the Bulldogs 19.
[00:00:08.310]First half was kind of a tale of two quarters.
[00:00:10.860]As you can see on your screen
[00:00:12.300]the field goal percentages and stats.
[00:00:15.690]A&M not really getting it done on the offensive end
[00:00:17.730]but the free throw making has been huge
[00:00:19.950]for their success so far today.
[00:00:21.510]That was the key
[00:00:22.380]in the second quarter for them.
[00:00:23.580]Let's get it to the paint, let's be aggressive,
[00:00:25.230]let's draw some fouls, let's make our free throws,
[00:00:27.030]and they've done a great job.
[00:00:28.530]90% from the free throw line thus far, 9 for 10 made.
[00:00:32.100]I think the big thing for Nebraska thus far has been
[00:00:36.150]22 points in the paint and 11 points off turnovers.
[00:00:39.510]They've taken advantage of their aggressive defense
[00:00:41.940]that they've instilled.
[00:00:44.100]And you know, the turnovers that they've caused
[00:00:46.320]they've capitalized on.
[00:00:47.400]And the key for the Bulldogs is 11 turnovers.
[00:00:49.830]You gotta take care of the ball.
[00:00:50.880]If you're gonna get back into this game,
[00:00:52.740]you cannot turn the ball over
[00:00:54.120]as much as they did in that first half.
[00:00:56.670]As Jones opens it up.
[00:01:00.034]3-ball is no good by Harris.
[00:01:03.570]So the Bulldogs come up empty
[00:01:04.710]on their first possession of the half.
[00:01:07.110]Shelley will bring it up for the Huskers
[00:01:09.060]A rare scoreless first half
[00:01:10.500]for Jaz Shelley.
[00:01:11.333]Scoggin will fire from deep,
[00:01:12.870]that one's no good, rebound gets tapped out
[00:01:15.090]to Jaz Shelley.
[00:01:18.270]Scoggin with a couple of ball fakes.
[00:01:20.040]Inside Cravens, Cravens will pull up.
[00:01:22.110]That one's too strong,
[00:01:23.100]rebound tapped away by Shelley, out of bounds.
[00:01:26.760]And it will go to A&M.
[00:01:28.440]Yeah, like I mentioned briefly, no,
[00:01:30.090]you know, no points for Jaz Shelley in the first half,
[00:01:33.030]but I will say this,
[00:01:33.863]her rebounding has been really, really good.
[00:01:35.820]Her fourth rebound of the game was just grabbed
[00:01:38.220]and she's being aggressive there, almost got a fifth one.
[00:01:42.180]Jones will bring it up for the Bulldogs.
[00:01:45.240]A&M outscored Nebraska 15 to 9 in that second quarter,
[00:01:50.010]only trailed by 15.
[00:01:51.420]There's a jump shot from Lewis, no good.
[00:01:56.370]As we talked about during halftime,
[00:01:57.660]Nebraska went on a 25 to nothing run in that first quarter
[00:02:03.450]until the Bulldogs were finally able to respond.
[00:02:07.290]Well, that was because the Bulldogs
[00:02:08.340]were just over-aggressive of the perimeter and
[00:02:10.170]they were able to get to the ball and the paint very easily.
[00:02:13.680]Bourne fires a three that's off the mark,
[00:02:15.810]pushing it up ahead is Harper.
[00:02:18.720]Harper stops, Lewis fakes the jump shot,
[00:02:21.450]outside Harris for three, in and out.
[00:02:25.197]Balls loose on the ground.
[00:02:27.420]And a jump ball will be called as-
[00:02:29.880]Speak of the devil, Jaz Shelley,
[00:02:31.290]once again going for those rebounds.
[00:02:33.450]Well, on that open three there,
[00:02:35.580]you see kind of the strategy change
[00:02:37.620]for Nebraska and the defensive end.
[00:02:39.090]They had four players in the paint there
[00:02:41.340]and they let that three pointer go.
[00:02:42.780]And they said, okay, you're 0 for 5
[00:02:44.250]from the three point line right now,
[00:02:45.605]0 for 4 before that shot.
[00:02:47.730]We're gonna protect this paint,
[00:02:48.840]we're not gonna allow you to get in here,
[00:02:50.820]draw the fouls and make your free throws.
[00:02:54.300]Haiby doesn't use the screen from Craven,
[00:02:56.100]she goes baseline in and lays it up and in.
[00:03:01.590]Good take there
[00:03:02.423]from the Nebraska MVP of last season.
[00:03:14.430]Looking for some sort of help, Lewis now-
[00:03:16.440]Great steal there from Scoggin.
[00:03:22.890]Jones tried to get it inside,
[00:03:25.440]tipped away and corralled by Cravens.
[00:03:27.150]Up ahead now, Haiby looking for Bourne,
[00:03:29.100]Bourne gathers herself and finishes.
[00:03:31.800]That was a great pass there to Bourne,
[00:03:34.740]her bread and butter all game.
[00:03:36.060]Now 7 for 8 from the field, or 8 for 9, correct.
[00:03:40.920]Bourne with 18 points,
[00:03:43.518]40 to 19 Nebraska.
[00:03:58.200]Working on Shelley, she'll kick it out.
[00:04:03.510]Jones, she'll get into the paint.
[00:04:05.340]Jones, got it blocked. She got it back.
[00:04:08.100]She'll fire up another floater,
[00:04:09.480]that ball bounces around the rim and,
[00:04:10.967]grabbed by Cravens.
[00:04:13.470]You see there,
[00:04:14.303]the entire time the defensive possession,
[00:04:15.660]the Huskers had three players in the paint,
[00:04:17.550]just sealing that off.
[00:04:19.020]Cravens with an open look from three
[00:04:20.610]and she knocks it down.
[00:04:24.690]That's not exactly her bread and butter,
[00:04:27.030]but Bella Cravens,
[00:04:28.980]with her first three pointer of the season right there
[00:04:32.490]That whole play was set up by Jaz Shelley.
[00:04:37.980]Now to Johnson-Graham.
[00:04:39.030]She got bumped by Bourne and a foul is called.
[00:04:42.120]Nebraska foul on number 34, Issie Bourne-
[00:04:43.266]That was a great aggressive play there by-
[00:04:45.771]Husker's first team foul-
[00:04:46.860]Johnson-Graham, drawing the foul.
[00:04:49.770]You know, it seemed like she was the one who really
[00:04:51.810]initiated the contact there on Bourne,
[00:04:53.730]but it was a smart play to pick that up.
[00:04:56.400]And one step, you know, a couple fouls closer
[00:04:58.860]for them getting into the bonus here, which they need.
[00:05:01.590]Issie Bourne with two fouls.
[00:05:03.750]Jeter tried to step in and squeeze one in, no good.
[00:05:07.200]Shelley pushes it up ahead for the Huskers.
[00:05:09.060]Shelley goes all the way, and the foul.
[00:05:12.060]Jaz Shelley, coast to coast
[00:05:15.150]That was a great play there by Jaz Shelley,
[00:05:17.580]her first points of the game.
[00:05:18.870]And like we were saying before, great job
[00:05:20.505]getting those rebounds, got the rebound to defensive end,
[00:05:23.250]took it all the way down, saw that she had the lane
[00:05:26.040]and took it up for the hoop and the foul.
[00:05:30.570]Shelly with three points after the and-one,
[00:05:32.700]it's 44 19 Nebraska.
[00:05:37.890]Her largest lead of the game at 25.
[00:05:44.010]Burgin, she'll go into the paint,
[00:05:46.170]stripped away by Shelly.
[00:05:47.790]Huskers have numbers, it's two on one.
[00:05:50.220]Shelley will take it herself, throws it up and in,
[00:05:52.410]plus another foul.
[00:05:53.580]Two in a row for Jaz Shelley
[00:05:56.220]What a start to the second half
[00:05:58.380]for Jaz Shelley here.
[00:05:59.970]Like we said, zero points in the first half
[00:06:03.300]and now have an opportunity to get her sixth
[00:06:05.940]and she's just doing it all right now.
[00:06:08.250]Time out, Alabama A&M,
[00:06:10.020]it's all Jaz Shelley here early on in the third quarter.
[00:06:12.960]We'll step aside, Nebraska 46, Alabama A&M 19.
