  1. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    ...and Collins FINALLY took his starters out. Bush league move, IMO, leaving them in so long.

    However, if they burn it to the ground this year and that helps us sneak out of Minneapolis with a W, I'm not going to be too upset if it's not a top 50 win.
  3. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    I have said before, and I'll say again, that Minnesota's run last season was shockingly similar to ours in 2014...just amazingly similar. It's beginning to look like they could suffer a similar fate the following year that we did. Still early though. Drake leading 23-15 now with just under 5 minutes left in the first half.
  4. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    Former Tim Miles assistant and Minnesota alum Niko Medved and the Drake Bulldogs have an early lead at the Barn. Drake 11 - Minnesota 3.

    LOL Chicago State is KenPom #343 (out of 351). It just so happens we play the current #351 (Delaware State) on December 22nd.

    Big Ten Basketball Weekend in Review: Things look bad in madison Meanwhile Michigan State keeps up their dominance, Maryland and Purdue cruise, and the SS Pitino Jr has run aground a few states down the Mississippi. Is there any hope for teams 3-12 in the Big Ten this year? https://www.offtackleempire.com/2017/12/11/16762016/big-ten-basketball-weekend-games-scores-states-recaps-michigan-state-maryland-purdue-minnesota Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-4, 1-1) lost @ Creighton Bluejays (75-65) [MNW: does it seem to anyone else like they play this game at Creighton every year?] Jesse Collins: Nebrasketball took it to Minnesota for almost an entire game by doubling down on defense, running the offense through Glynn Watson, and hitting threes. They did that same thing - only this time through Isaac Copeland instead of Watson - for the first half against Creighton. That formula ran out in the second half and this four game stretch of tough games comes to a close next weekend against Kansas. For what it’s worth, Nebraska is not a bad basketblal team. They certainly might not be good, but they’re not really bad.

    I wonder if it's coincidental that they picked a picture of Evan (#11) in an article they ranked Nebraska #11. Probably, huh?

    2017-’18 Week Five Big Ten Power Rankings: Minnesota Tumbles Check out BTP's power rankings for the Big Ten. https://www.btpowerhouse.com/2017/12/11/16761878/2017-18-week-five-big-ten-basketball-power-rankings-standings-predictions-purdue-michigan-state #11 - Nebraska Cornhuskers (+2) The Huskers had two games last week and showed some encouraging signs, despite only splitting those two matchups. The first was a road win over a talented Minnesota team on Tuesday and the second was a loss to a really solid Creighton team on Saturday. Nebraska now sits at 7-4 overall and 1-1 in Big Ten play. Nebraska will get another opportunity to score a marquee win this week with Kansas at home on Saturday. The Jayhawks figure to be in the national championship picture, but are reeling after some rough recent play. A win could reshape Nebraska’s season.

    Not likely to be a factor by the time the game rolls around but:
  11. Expectations for the next 5 games?

    I visit there practically every day. Truly an amazing lack of hoops insight for a fanbase of a hoops "blue blood". Makes me so appreciative of what we have here in HHC!

    Azubuike is an absolute monster though. Just a brick wall of a human.
  13. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    Last time they lost three in a row? 2013
  14. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    According to the ESPN broadcast today, the last time the Jayhawks had a multi-game home losing streak was back in 1989. The game last week was in KC so I'm not sure it counts.
