Nebrasketball comes close to notching a conference road win, but falls to Rutgers, 75-72

  • It was another interesting game for Nebraska; much like the Wisconsin game, the Huskers played really well for the first 20 minutes, and then got off to a rough start in the 2nd half, before battling back…and eventually actually had a 6 point lead (72-66) before they went cold from the field, and Rutgers hit big shots, including Geo Baker’s go-ahead 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining
  • Losing is not fun and it’s hard on fans, but you watch that game and see growth from Nebraska. Rutgers is a pretty solid team with some big dudes, and Nebraska found a way to score in the paint, and had a much better effort than they did when they played Rutgers in Lincoln to start off 2020
