    The Husker men's basketball team looks to knock off its second straight ranked opponent Friday afternoon, as Nebraska takes on No. 19 Wisconsin in the Big Ten quarterfinals.

    The Huskers (18-15) come off one of their best performances of the season, knocking off No. 21 Maryland, 69-61, on Thursday in the second round. James Palmer Jr. had 25 points, five rebounds and three assists to pace three Huskers in double figures, while Glynn Watson Jr. added 19 points, four rebounds and three assists.

    The story of the afternoon was Nebraska's defense, which limited Maryland to 36 percent shooting and forced 11 turnovers. The Huskers limited All-Big Ten performer Bruno Fernando to three points on 1-of-4 shooting and eight rebounds after he averaged 15.5 ppg and 17.0 rpg in the two regular-season meetings.

    Nebraska, which dressed just eight players because of injuries, continued to get contributions from unexpected sources. Johnny Trueblood had five points, four rebounds and two assists, while Thorir Thorbjarnarson added four points and a career-high five steals.

    Wisconsin (22-9) is the fourth seed and has been off since a 73-67 overtime win over Ohio State on Sunday. First-team All-Big Ten forward Ethan Happ leads the Badgers in scoring (17.8 ppg), rebounding (10.4 rpg) and assists (4.7 apg), while guards D'Mitrik Trice (11.9 ppg) and Brad Davison (10.9 ppg) help balance the Badgers attack.

    The winner of Friday's game will play either top-seeded Michigan State or eighth-seeded Ohio State in the first semifinal Saturday at Noon. Nebraska is looking for its first conference semifinal appearance since 2006.

    At some point, one of these teams is going to destroy Nebraska. Its hard enough to play day after day with a full roster let alone doing it with a depleted one.

    That said, Wisconsin is beatable. Things are going to get very dicey after that if we can pull it off tomorrow.

    Here is to these guys proving me wrong. GO BIG RED!!!

    Wisconsin is playing well right now with a lot of confidence ... Happ has been outstanding. Nevertheless - I hate the Badgers ... so Go Big Red!

    Agree that the grass only gets taller from here, but by the same token, the only team that has really beaten NU this year, is NU.

    I think they have to have the confidence that they can beat anyone they run up against in the Trny. Notable exceptions would be Michigan, or Purdue (we can't matchup against their size). And the only place we would meet either of those two teams is Sunday.
