    The No. 25/22 Nebraska men’s basketball team returns home after two weeks, as the Huskers host Cal State Fullerton. The Titans, who returned four starters from a 20-win team which made the NCAA Tournament, have gotten off to a slow start with a 3-8 mark, but have shown the ability to hang with the best teams they have faced, highlighted by a double overtime loss at Arizona State. Kyle Allman Jr. is a returning first-team All-Big West selection who has dropped a pair of 30-point games this season, including a 35-point effort against the Sun Devils.

    This is a game we lost in many past seasons. A team with talent but that isn't playing well.

    I would like to see the Huskers take control early and never let up.

    The Minnesota game still lingers as a complete failure and brings back horrible memories. We had that team beat and let them claw back and win the game. Basketball seasons are long and these things happen but for a team like Nebraska, it doesn't make one reach for the panic button but you certainly look at it.

    I just want to see Nebraska dominate at a point in the season where games are sporadic and the fans aren't as numerous or rowdy.

    On the other hand, the Texas Tech loss doesn't look as bad as it once did, despite getting thumped pretty good. They went toe to toe at Duke for most of the game.

    Yeah, I’m not into beauty points here. Finals are over, kids are going home for Christmas after the game...just never have the game in doubt and win, no matter how sloppy.

    If we don't win this game by 15 or more, I think it just means we were bored and looking forward to the holiday. The baseball reference was awesomely funny. 88 - 59 Huskers, or there so.

    Here is some 'Skinny' (copied from another site :Redface:):

    Mascot: Tuffy the Titan
    Line: Nebraska by 19

    Players to watch: Khalil Ahmad and Kyle Allman
    The two leading scorers are fairly inefficient with eFG under 50%. Allman (the skinny one with the hair) is the better shooter but has really struggled this year though he does get to the FT line often. Ahmad (the beefier one) leads the team in steals and is an excellent FT shooter. The duo combined for 66 points in a double OT game vs Arizona St. on the road.

    The Skinny: Like any holiday type game vs a lesser opponent there is always the worry of a let down. CSF isn't a particularly good team but they aren't as bad as their 3-8 record might indicate as they've played the 11th hardest KenPom schedule thus far. Nebraska with its rim protection and ability to guard without fouling is set up to stop a team like the Titans so even in a struggle the Huskers should win pretty handily. Defensively is where CSF shines and they'll sit back and bait you into long range 2s. Defensively they crash the boards and they rarely chase offensive boards, preferring to get back on defense. They foul quite a bit so this is another game where you could see James Palmer with double digit FT attempts.

    Otherwise the biggest lingering question is how long will it take for backup guard Amir Harris to recover from mono and how much will Thorir play in his absence. Miles almost always describes him as a crafty gifted scorer with a high basketball IQ which means his inability to play defense at a high enough level is what keeps him out of the rotation. He'll certainly play over the next two games so it will be something to focus on when he's in the game.

    This is the type of team that can turn a game into a boondoggle but ultimately Nebraska is talented enough to win even when not playing at their best.
    Prediction: Nebraska 79 - Cal St Fullerton 59

    I agree. I posted before the team didn’t seem to know how to close the Minnesota game. There has been significant improvements since that game. Hopefully they start on fire and follow through to the end of the game.
