Arkansas State won the first game 224-217. Nebraska came back, winning the next four, 235-194, 201-190, 179-162, and 198-170.
Game 5 was close, with the Red Wolves leading early. Arkansas State lead by 9 when they threw a gutter ball, failing to pick up a spare. Nebraska’s next ball was a strike, so that was the dagger we talk about in other sports.
“In a year like this our athletic program really needed this and we are proud to bring it home,” said Klempa after the match on ESPNU.
Congratulations to Husker Bowling!
