Nebraska hasn’t been in the NCAA Tournament in five years but that’s going to change this season.
The ‘Huskers last played on Thursday. They were at home and lost but it was by just six points to Michigan State, which is playing as well as any team in the country right now.
Nebraska won the offensive rebound battle by a smidge and its 11 assists to nine turnovers was marginally better than Michigan State’s 13 to 14.
But the ‘Huskers only made five out of their 26 long-range attempts. Just 32.8 percent from the field was the only reason Nebraska lost this game. I give credit to Michigan State’s defense, knowing full well that Nebraska could have won this game.
The only two teams that are definitively better than Nebraska are Sparty and Michigan. I put the Cornhuskers in the second tier with Maryland, Wisconsin, Ohio State, etc. It’s a big bunch but most, if not all, should get to dance this year.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers is more of a mid-major playing in the Big Ten and it’s paying for it, despite not being a terrible basketball team. The Scarlet Knights lost their third game in a row on Friday, failing to crack 60 at home against Northwestern.
So far, their only win in the Big Ten was a three-point home win over Ohio State, so don’t rule them out of this one either.
But, man, the offensive numbers are ugly. Rutgers isn’t even in the top 300 in field goal percentage (2s, 3s and overall), free throw percentage or points per game.
If they can muck it up enough, Rutgers can stay in this game but Nebraska has seniors that can make tough shots, which leads me to believe it will win either way.
