Nebraska is not even on the radar of the folks in Lincoln, where even a lowly 9-3 football team still captivates the locals attention through December. The hoops team must play second fiddle to Creighton for the state’s basketball interests. Creighton is also the only team Nebraska has lost to so far this year. Nebraska is incredibly balanced with their leading scorer, forward John Turek, only averaging 10.6 ppg.
The only road game the Huskers have played was against Creighton, and they’re going to have to do some damage on the road if they want to avoid another last place finish in the Big 12. A good barometer game will be next Monday at Minnesota, where their former coach Danny Nee nearly led Duquesne to an overtime win tonight.
