Nebraska's two entries in the NCAA women's nasties championships turned in matching all-around scores Friday as the two-day meet got under way.

STATE DES NU women sign Oregon player of year The Nebraska women's basketball team has signed Usbet Brenden of Silverton, to a letter of intent. Brenden, a 5-foot-6 guard, was named Oregon player of the year in 1 992 after leading Silverton to a 23-4 record. She averaged 23 points, four rebounds and six assists per game her senior season. "I have a desire to win," said Brenden, who chose Nebraska over Weber State, Arizona State, Idaho and Oregon. "I don't lose, and I don't plan on losing." Bentz to coach both Husker swim teams Cal Bentz will serve as head coach of both the Nebraska men's and women's swimming and diving teams starting next season, NU Athletic Director Bob Devaney announced.

Bentz, who has been the men's coach since 1978-79 and has guided the Cornhuskers to 13 straight Big Eight titles, will take on additional duties as head coach of the women's team after the resignation last month of 16-year women's head coach Ray Huppert. Meanwhile, Huppert has taken a job as a sales representative for the Peed Corporation in Lincoln. Bentz said four-year women's assistant Kelly Nordell will remain on the staff as will eight-year men's assistant Rick Paine and third-year men's and women's diving coach Jim Hocking. Bentz also announced that Lincoln High graduate Amy Tidball has been hired as a restricted-earnings coach.

The third finalist was Dennis Lehnus, head coach at Kankakee Community College. Three Chadron State linemen arrested CHADRON (AP) Chadron State linemen Steve Crow of Daytona Beach, Chad Kindle of Box Elder, S.D., and Jeff Connelly of Brady have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a performance-enhancing drug that is illegal without a prescription, authorities said. Coach Brad Smith said that the players were dismissed from the squad and that he would contact NCAA Division II officials about the incident. If the players are found innocent, they will be reinstated, he said. The players were jailed on 1 ,000 bond apiece, but county courts were closed because of Arbor Day, and no arraignment date has been set.

Creighton names Rasmussen assistant AD OMAHA (AP) Bruce Rasmussen, who has coached the Creighton women's basketball team since 1980, has been named assistant athletic director at the university.

Nicole Duval, a freshman out of Lincoln Christian, and Martha Jenkins, also a freshman, totaled 37.6 of a possible 40 points to tie for 29th place.

I Golding also ran a leg on the Husker men's 800 relay team (with Mark Jackson, Ken Waller and Travis Grant) that placed third.

was pretty pleased with my hurdles time," Golding said. "Now, if I run that well tomorrow, 111 be in good shape." Travis qualified for the women's 100 final, and Grant qualified for the men's final. I Stewart won her heat in the 100 hurdles to advance to the finals, and Susan Hedrick-Rehm placed fifth in the 400 hurdles finaL NOTES: Husker Cris Hall placed fourth in the high jump, clearing 5-10, and Meredy Porter was seventh with a jump of 5-9.

Doane's Jana Hochstetler and Michelle Holt-man didn't clear the opening night 'Nebraska's Andy Meyer placed second in the shot put with his throw of 188 feet, 5 inches.
