Morning Wrap: Incarnate Word Stuns Nebraska in Hoops


Basketball is a wonderful equalizer. Just ask the various D-1 College Teams who have found that out the hard way early this College Basketball season.

You can now add a new team to the list.

Incarnate Word, a small college team from San Antonio, Texas who made the jump from Division II to D-1 just last year took down Big 12 Nebraska in what's considered a significant upset.

The Cardinals got a 74-73 win, but it took a fumbled inbounds pass from Terran Petteway of Nebraska and baseline fadeaway jumper from Kyle Hittle of Incarnate who got the steal with just under 5 seconds left to secure the win.

Incarnate is in the midst of a solid start this season, the win moved them to 6-1. Nebraska dropped to 5-3. Hittle lead the Cardinals with 18 points. Terran Petteway had 18 for Nebraska.
