Illinois vs. Nebraska, 4.10

Nebraska pitcher Courtney Wallace delivers against Illinois in the fifth inning during the first game of a doubleheader on April 10 at Bowlin Stadium.

Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett talk about the lull in the college football world before a wild June of recruiting visits and workouts begins. In baseball, Spencer Schwellenbach is rising up MLB Draft boards while the Huskers found out Friday that they will not play host to a regional in the NCAA Tournament. 

Two Nebraska softball players were named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association's All-Midwest Region second team Thursday.

Senior outfielder Tristen Edwards was named to the team for the second time in her career, while junior pitcher Courtney Wallace earned all-region honors for the first time in her career.

Edwards, who was named a first-team selection by the Big Ten on Wednesday, batted .326 with seven doubles, seven homers and 17 RBIs in 40 games. She was among the nation's leaders in on-base percentage at .583.

Wallace took a big leap in the circle this year. She finished 11-9 with a 2.86 earned-run average in 132 innings. Offensively she had 16 hits, including three doubles, one triple and one homer.
