    The Skinny:

    Defense is the Islander's calling card but they haven't defended all that well this year. Nebraska should be able to work inside if they need to today and/or drive the lane as TAMCC has little to no rim protection.  On defense Nebraska should be able to force turnovers vs this sloppy team. However, they'll also need to be prepared to defend for 30 seconds because the Islanders will take and make those last second 3s.  


    If Nebraska has a sense of urgency, they'll break this thing open early and cruise. If they don't and let TAMCC hang around, this will be another trouble game.


    Prediction: Nebraska 74 - Texas AM 62
