Cornhuskers Shucked

18 Jan 2019

With the 76ers hammering the Pacers 120-96, MSU @ Nebraska was the only Thursday night drama left on the GridCard. The Spartans led by five at the half, and the game remained tight until MSU stretched the lead to twelve with under two minutes left. But the Cornhuskers did not go quietly. Using the old-fashioned 3-point play, Nebraska hacked-and-hoped their way back and cut the lead to four--putting the game (and the +2 ATS) into play.

Winston and McQuaid, however,  converted FTs in the final seconds to secure the 70-64 win--earning GridCard wins for btninja (43) and Jodyann (43). Last year, Jodyann placed third in GridCard points (2509) and btninja finished seventh (2425). TheDust's four-week King Kong dominance was ended by btninja (70) who won the GridCard Week.

Ace (41) and dangerzone (41) wasted huge scores but came away with wins over the ProGrid Tour--as did GB55 (37) and csmorgan71 (36). MMc (35) won the PGT, a Rollover which paid double.

Five other players posted Qualifying Scores: CraigW (34), Annabelle (33), Dano (32), mac (31) and rookie Hemendra (31).
