NM St beat Colorado St in overtime in game one.   Loyola up by 6 at halftime of game two.

 

Got that off ESPN.   Logged in here hoping someone had a good approach to getting this game on TV - or knew of some bar in town that was airing the tournament games - but looks like I may just do the radio thing too.   Will bring back memories to listening to Kent on road games back in the years before pretty much every game gets televised.

Update... Stream is back up and working. 

 

Quality is.... something that could be improved.  Feed hasn't been the clearest for the entire time I have been watching.

 

Announcers are... about what you would expect.

 

Score/Time Ticker is.... Non existent.  Therefore the announcers are saying the score like every 10 seconds.

                          As I type this, the score ticker came back on the bottom.

 

Worth 30 bucks?  Ask me on Wednesday night.

I've decided to save $30 this week. Just don't trust a sports streaming service I've never heard of.

Still puzzles me why huskers.com and the team officially are sponsoring this service. Usually the huskers tech / streaming lags behind, which is expected. What I would hope is they can figure it out and get us a reliable and more polished streaming service (especially if they're making us pay upwards of 30)

TBH, the stream worked great for me all night last night.  No problems with quality, glitches, or not being reliable.  I know they had those problems early in the day, but those were fixed and it never went down again.  
 

The announcers on the other hand.... now there is a need for investment.

Same, my stream was fine.

My favorite quote so far that shows they didn't do much if any research...

 

"Historically awful, low fan support, no in-state recruiting, and you aren't even the best program in your own borders."

Nice of them to give the Mavs some love, but we beat Wazzu by 11, Omaha only beat them by 8, so by the infallible law of comparing scores, clearly NU is #1 in the state.

 

The Counciltucky Bluejays clearly are not part of Nebraska - just waiting on the Unicameral to do the right thing and redraw the state border.

Good find

 

Should be a big game for Oduro with Calixte probably out. (one of their few post players)

Kier is probably going to get around 8 minutes today (per Paulsen presser) (Kier was probably their best returning player who hasn't been able to play yet due to a leg injury)

Yeah that's interesting.  According to KenPom:

 

George Mason

Patriots · Fairfax, VA

Home games played at EagleBank Arena (7,860, 146th largest in D-I)
Home court advantage: 2.9 (238th in D-I)

 

 

Nebraska

Cornhuskers · Lincoln, NE

Home games played at Pinnacle Bank Arena (15,000, 29th largest in D-I)
Home court advantage: 4.0 (18th in D-I)

 

 

Also interesting...one would expect an historically awesome, high fan support program like George Mason to appear above Nebraska in this list:

But they don't seem to be anywhere in the top ten.  Crazy.
