    Prairie likes to pound it in the paint so Nebraska will have to deal with the 6'8" 240# Williams. Anytime he does manage to beat a Husker team that will be playing pack defense all night you should foul hard and put his 58% FT shooting to the test.

     


    The Skinny

     

    Let's do some bad news/good news

     

    Good News: This is literally the worst 3pt shooting team in Div 1 as their 24.2% shooting is ranked 351 out of 351 so we should be able to spend all day doubling down and denying in the post while not really worrying about them making us pay. They're also the worst team in Div I in terms of turnovers so there is a delightful chance you'll get to see a series of breakaway dunks. Finally, this is a bad team...Nebraska doesn't have to be at their best to beat them.

     

    Bad News: This is also a zone running, pressure generating team which is the sort of defense that had the Husker take a figurative dump on the court this Sunday. If you read the post game writeups for opponents like UNLV, TCU, and Wisconsin they're all about ugly, foul ridden games where the home team finally put it together in the second half for an unsatisfying, double digit win. It really seems like this is the type of game we're in store for.

     

    I don't exactly see us scrapping everything just because we blew a game at home against an inferior opponent but you have to wonder how much last game got the old assessment juices flowing. Is Nebraska going to run the same game plan they ran for Samford, but this time with feeling? Will we just hero ball our way to a win once again? Are we ready to go to even more of a youth movement not because we're giving up but because it's our best chance to win?
    Prediction: Nebraska 75 - Prarie View A&M 59 with a 76% chance of Runzas
