The senior guard is scoring over 20 ppg and is on track to be the school's all-time leader in points. Does most of his damage inside the paint. Bruggerman played a few minutes as a true freshman vs Nebraska when the schools met in 2014.
Scouting SMSU Thread
The Skinny: Nebraska scheduled a Div-II team because the Huskers wanted an easier win without taking a hit to their SOS. (It's possible this even helps with a bit with NET). Miles coached SMSU back in the day and during that time their current head coach was his PG. The biggest question is how much of an effort will Nebraska put up as the Mustangs don't have the inside game that is capable of hurting Nebraska. SMSU has a couple of outside shooters to complement Bruggerman's slashing but that's really it.
Prediction: Nebraska 91 - SMSU 65
