When I was five my dad took my to my first Nebrasketball Game n February 1989 against #14 Kansas, a game which the Huskers would win. My dad taught me the basics of the game. From that moment on, I was a die-hard Nebrasketball fan.
Nebraska Basketball Hall of Famer Brian Carr played for the Huskers from 1984-1987, and is the only player in NU history to score 1,000 points and dish out better than 600 assists.
Carr, a 6'0" point guard from Muncie, Indiana, finished his career at Nebraska with (then) fourteen school records, and played a big role in leading the Huskers to the post-season in each of the four seasons he played in Lincoln, including the schools first ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 1986.
Carr is our latest guest in this Sunday's edition of "Then & Now."
Former Miami Hurricane James Palmer picks Nebraska, citing the recent success of Terran Petteway and Andrew White III transferring into the program. He's spend a year redshirting with 2 left to play. Palmer, a 2014 high school graduate, was a Rivals Top 100 four star from the DC area.
- Before the game, watching on the BTN app, they had a feed from the Breslin Center during intros. While the NU players were being introduced, get this, they were LEADING a "Go Green, Go White" cheer. While they were announcing NU players!!! Can you believe that?!? How rude!!! Also, the non-student fans weren't exactly into it. They were sitting and clapping and stuff. No standing. No standing until the first MSU bucket. Not sure most realize how good things at NU really are. - Pretty big defensive breakdown on the first play of the game. - Looked like White had a pretty clear shot at an offensive rebound on NU's first possession. - MSU got off to the fast start that NU couldn't allow. I like the time out :50 in, intensity clearly elevated after that.
The 6'8" shooting guard from Australia is currently at the Australian Institute of Sport, a National organization where Aleks Maric once spent time. McVeigh is currently the captain of the Under 19 Australian National team and plans to compete in the World Championships this July in Greece. This commitment puts Nebraska on track to use all 13 scholarships next season.
