Syracuse 72 - Nebraska 69

I would have much rather had a picture of Emily Cady and Brandi Jeffery being congratulated by someone other than  Quentin Hillsman, the Syracuse Coach. It was a hard fought game and the aggressive, full court defense was tough for the Nebraska girls to handle. It forced turnovers beyond their normal and might have even affected  the free throws. It has been a “great run” for the 4 Nebraska seniors who have been together for the full 4 years. I watched Emily Cady during her 4 years of HS here in Seward where we won the State Class B Championship each of her 4 years. I didn’t miss many of those home games nor the State Tournaments. She has started every game that Nebraska girls played during her 4 years at the U. It’s always tough to lose the last game that you play at any level but can always take heart in that you were in “The Dance”. It has been a real pleasure to have watched a lanky 6’2” freshman in HS developed into the confident, mature young lady that Emily Cady has become. Thanks for the memories, Emily, we are proud you and of your being from Seward, Nebraska.
