Derrick Walker talked to the media yesterday.

Nick sliced his finger and complained.

Rutgers 3/1/2021

Terrance Badgett, Erick Strickland, DP and Connor Happer discuss a 72-51 Nebraska drubbing of Rutgers.

Sound the alarms! Nebrasketball wins another game! Let’s get weird in March

-Teddy Allen didn’t score any points and only played 10 minutes, but Nebraska still found a way to win against the Gophers. The seniors (Thor, Kobe Webster, Derrick Walker) were all very, very good in the game, as the Huskers won 78-74

-For Minnesota, what a terrible look for Richard Pitino. They had VERY winnable games, back-to-back, against Northwestern and Nebraska to try to confirm their belonging in the Big Dance, and lost both.

-Also…what in the world happened with the Husker women’s game against Michigan State that was canceled at the last second?

Maryland 2/16/2021

Terrance Badgett, Derrick Pearson, Jake Bockoven and Big Sky look back at Nebraska’s 64-50 loss to Maryland.

DP & Stephens: Steve Sipple, Lincoln Journal Star

We call and talk Steve Sipple after Nebraska won their first conference game since January 7th, 2020.

  • What did yesterday’s win tell you about Fred Hoiberg?
  • How hard is it to travel cross country
  • Do we blame the conference for doing this?

Wisconsin 2/10/2021

Erick Strickland and Derrick Pearson look back at Nebraska’s 61-48 loss to Wisconsin.

-After over 20 consecutive conference losses, is the addition of Derrick Walker enough to move the needle for a much maligned Husker Men’s basketball team.

-How much impact will the suspension of practice and games be for this Husker squad?

Nebraska Women’s Basketball improves to 6-4 on the season with a win over #23 Michigan State

-Amy Williams’ squad collected its second top 25 victory of the season behind 18 points from sophomore forward Isabelle Bourne.

-A game against the undefeated #16 Ohio State Buckeyes is ahead this saturday.

-Did the new look Huskers do enough to give you hope or are you beat down by the losing streak?

-Derrick Walker made his debut for the Husker, retro uniforms and all five starters in double digits, but Fred Hoiberg’s squad was still unable to come away with the home victory. Are Husker fans encouraged by last night?

-What exactly happened against Ohio State last week and is that cleared from the team’s system?

-Derrick Walker return soon…how much will he change the look of the team, if at all?

-What has been the most disappointing part of this season so far to you?
