Let’s see. Nebraska: #67 at KenPom, well-balanced but with a better defense (51) than offense (102).
It’s won 14 of its 21 games, including versus Boston College as well as five Big Ten opponents: Minnesota, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan. All but Northwestern came at home.
But the losses are twice as telling as the wins.
In reverse chronological order: at Penn State by two, at Purdue by 12, vs. Kansas by one, at Creighton by ten, at Michigan State by 29, vs. Central Florida by nine, at St. John’s by 23.
The leading scorer is James Palmer Jr., who just sounds like a ballplayer. He sat out last season after transferring from Miami and he’s a more mature kid than when he was in South Beach.
If he wants to be, he can be the best player on the floor tonight.
Ohio State Buckeyes
There has been no bigger surprise this season in college basketball than the Buckeyes, who are up to #11 at KenPom and tied with Purdue at a perfect 8–0 in the Big Ten.
There’s one primary reason Ohio State is good again and its its Head Coach Chris Holtmann.
From NAIA Taylor University to the Ohio State University, Holtmann has climbed quickly. He’s a fantastic coach who is only just getting started because he might be an even better recruiter.
Keita Bates-Diop is finally coming through as a guy who was the second-best recruit in D’Angelo Russell’s class from four years ago. But the team is about much more than he.
The Buckeyes play good ball; it isn’t an aberration.

Free Nebraska vs. Ohio State NCAAB Prediction: Ohio State wins and, if you’ve got to bet it, covers.
This is a tough number to play but I do think there’s a good chance OSU will frustrate Nebraska, though the ‘Huskers haven’t been beat badly lately.
