Early Break: Texas Tech is in the national championship tonight…does Nebrasketball have the right formula with Fred Hoiberg?

  • Texas Tech is incredible defensively, and has built a culture in doing so….and a good tweet showing the team they have and what their recruiting rankings shows what a great job Chris Beard has done with development
  • Both teams in tonight’s national championship are built firmly on defense…Fred Hoiberg has never really been known for that, but actually as an offensive juggernaut…does his coaching philosophy fit in for a long, productive run in the Big Dance?

The Drive: April 5th, 2pm

  • Can Hoiberg replicate what Chris Beard has done at Texas Tech?

Early Break: Does the quick rise of Texas Tech help or hurt Fred Hoiberg with fans and expectations
