Hey Husker Fans!!!!

We started our morning off with a wonderful breakfast. Game 4 went well and we won!!! Teamwork will win them all - but most of all defense. The Danish National Team was a good team, and I think we played our best game of the trip. We also met a little girls team from Copenhagen and gave them great advice on some things like staying in school, staying away from boys and listening to their parents, etc. We had T-shirts that we gave to the kids, but we needed three more shirts. Four players, including Lindsey Moore, Harleen Sidhu, Layne Reeves and I, volunteered to give them our own personal shirts.

After the game, our plan was to clean up, eat, and get some ice cream. We ate at this great Italian restaurant. Our waiter sang to us and kissed Layne on the cheek. The food was very good. I had a seafood pasta. Louisiana girls love their seafood. A lot of the girls had pizza, Free bread!! After dinner we enjoyed a walk back to the hotel. We stopped and got some of the most famous ice-cream. Even though it was raining we got the best of it, including Meghin Williams putting ice cream all over my face, She's the coolest.

Two of the girls (Rebecca Woodberry and Tear'a Laudermill) got tickets to the Wiz Khalifa concert. A lot of the girls went back up to their rooms to get ready to go to a karaoke restaurant. We had a really great time and enjoyed the singing. Some people weren't as good at as they thought they were.

After karaoke we all came back to the hotel, packed our bags and stayed up as late as we could. In Lindsey's words, we were going to be " team no sleep." We all figured we were going to sleep the whole plane ride home.

Our whole trip to Europe was a really great experience not only for me personally, but for our entire team. This was my first trip outside of the United States in my life, and I will never forget it. Thanks to the Fastbreakers for giving us this amazing opportunity.

Go Big Red!
