• Nebraska’s Cassie Deeg, a sophomore from Hugo, was named the Big Ten women’s golfer of the week. She won the Chip-N Club Invitational last weekend with a three-round score of 213, which also helped the Cornhuskers win their first tournament title since 2008. Deeg was the Class 3A state champion in Minnesota in 2011 as a senior at Stillwater.
