We are all hoping for a better year, next year. God help us if they don't improve.
At least the f/t's did a lot better this last game. Let's hope they improve in all
categories.................especially, taking care of the ball. Yeah, what a year!! :(

The 'Skinny' from another site! :Redface:

The Skinny:
Relatively speaking this is a decent matchup for Nebraska defensively as Indiana wants to go inside in part because of their poor outside shooting. Indiana has shot more from the outside vs Nebraska than they typically do and did so at a poor percentage. The only problem is that even with Nebraska packing the paint Indiana shredded the Husker inside to the tune of 60%+ for both games. Indiana also has been elite about getting to the FT line to the point it's very possible you'll see a football player on the court in the first half. The Hoosiers tend to get sloppy so transition buckets should be there for the Huskers.

Offensively Nebraska limited their turnovers vs Minnesota and will need to do the same here as offensive rebounds will be few and far between. Speaking of bright spots the Huskers have been making FTs the last couple of games and will probably shoot a decent number today. Indiana's height will make finishing at the rim difficult. Is Nebraska due to hit some 3s?

An important question here is how much is Indiana concentrating on Nebraska and how much are they looking ahead to Penn St? The Hoosiers should be good enough to win regardless but the Huskers are no strangers to beating B1G tournament teams going through the motions. If Indiana gets comfortable shooting from outside it's going to get ugly.

Prediction: Indiana 82 - Nebraska 67
