Nebrasketball heads to Rutgers tonight

  • is a win all that matters, or do you need to see a resounding victory?
  • Nebraska was listed as anywhere from a 6.5 to 8 point favorite in pre-game spreads. Rutgers has only 1 conference win, but it was at home vs. a previously ranked Ohio State team (64-61 win).
  • Huskers still listed as a five seed, what needs to be done to actually get there?

Cary Cochran (Former Nebrasketball shooting guard)

  • Nebrasketball doesn’t get it done vs. No. 6 ranked Michigan State…what do you learn from that game?
  • Can a game like that affect the team at all and their mojo going forward, or do you just point to it being an elite team coming to town that got you on a bad shooting night for the squad?
  • James Palmer’s points were impressive, but they didn’t come when it mattered…how does Nebraska get him back to being a bigger part of the offense?

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.
