Ray Gallegos scored 17 of his career-high 20 points after halftime to help Nebraska beat Wake Forest 79-63 last night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Andre Almeida matched his career-high with 20 points to go with a career-best eleven rebounds for the Cornhuskers, who blew open a close game after halftime. Gallegos went just 1-5 in the first half but hit seven straight shots after the break, helping Nebraska blow the game open and turn it into an ugly night for the Demon Deacons. After leading just 28-24 at the break, the Huskers scored on 16 of 19 possessions to start the second half and build a 22-point lead with 8:05 left. Nebraska improves to 5-1 on the season while Wake Forest falls to 3-3. The Huskers will be off until they host USC at the Devaney Center Monday night at 7:00.

Are you starting to feel the effects of shorter hours of daylight-- a condition referred to as Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD? Deb Schroeder, Cuming County extension educator and a member of the Cuming County Diabetes Team, says winter can be an especially tough time for diabetics. She says sometimes, even small things can seem overwhelming. Schroeder says in addition to monitoring diet, exercise, and medications, diabetics should make sure they are getting enough sleep. She says the average adult requires 8 1/2 hours of sleep each night-- and there is no way to catch up on lost sleep.
Fires caused by fireplaces and wood burning stoves are fairly common - and preventable. Burt County Extension Educator John Wilson urges homeowners to clean chimneys and pipes from fireplaces and wood burning stoves. Wilson says if you are burning wood in a fireplace mostly for the aesthetics, use cottonwood, maple and elm. These woods produce a brighter flame and go out quickly. He says if the purpose of the fire is heat, heavier woods like ash and oak are preferred.

He adds that it opens new recruiting fields for Nebraska; and Husker fans on the East Coast are excited about being able to see their team play in person.
