The 20-game home win streak is dead as Nebrasketball falls to Michigan State—what are the takeaways?

  • Huskers had their chances
  • James Palmer scored 24 points, but it wasn’t a real 24 points—many of those came in the last 2 minutes when the game was pretty much over. Nebraska needed more from Palmer but didn’t get it when it mattered most—but in general, Nebraska shot poorly, making only 5 of 26 3-pointers, and missing many shots around the rim
  • Sparty didn’t have starting shooting guard Joshua Langford or guard Kyle Ahrens and still found a way to come to Lincoln and extend their conference winning streak. Credit Tom Izzo—and how about Cassius Winston? Wow. Career-high 29 points on the road in a hostile environment. Major kudos to him.
