NU Banks on Komine in Clash With Titans

There's really only one thing Nebraska junior Shane Komine could do today as a proper encore after his last pitching performance. He could go out and win the biggest game in school history. Anything less would be a significant letdown - for Komine and about 25,000 fans in red at Rosenblatt Stadium. Nebraska's 5-foot-10 ace takes the mound at 6 p.m. as the Huskers face Cal State Fullerton in one of the most anticipated College World Series games ever.

Huskers Generate Fireworks During CWS Opening Ceremonies

Nebraska's baseball team got a glimpse Thursday night of the home-field advantage it can expect to enjoy in its College World Series opener tonight. Sitting behind home plate, the Huskers were part of a ring of red that, save for the empty bleachers down the third-base line, ran all the way around Rosenblatt Stadium. A reported-estimated 10,000 fans turned out for the opening ceremonies, 2,000 more than last year.

Omaha.com has pictures of Thursday's opening ceremonies.

Some day Kelly Delay would like to help kids overcome their fear of doctors and hospitals as a nurse in pediatric medicine. She knows how they feel. "I was always scared of needles when I was little," Delay said. "I want to help them so they're not timid when they go to the hospital." On the soccer field, though, Delay is anything but timid. The 2001 Murray Conestoga graduate was chosen to compete in the seventh Shrine Soccer Classic on Saturday at the University of Nebraska at Omaha's soccer complex at Ak-Sar-Ben.



Avs Overwhelm Devils, Force Game Seven

Ray Bourque's guarantee was as good as Adam Foote's goal -- the Colorado Avalanche are going home for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. Foote had a goal and two assists and Patrick Roy, never straying an inch from the net, turned aside a flurry of early New Jersey shots as the Avalanche prevented the Devils from clinching the cup with a series-tying 4-0 victory Thursday night.



World-Herald CWS Special Section: Husker Trip Gives Hope to Others

Nebraska's first CWS appearance is giving hope to schools outside of the South and West. Bob Todd sees more than just a nice story. "I'm glad to see Nebraska overcome what it did to make it to Omaha," said Todd, a member of the NCAA Baseball Committee. In defying the odds to get to the CWS, NU has become the poster boy for college baseball's downtrodden. Dave Van Horn took a program that couldn't even make it to its conference tourney and turned it into a contender for college baseball's ultimate prize.
