It's tough to lose a game like this tonight, but I thought tonight was the first time I saw a team I could enjoy watching. So far this season, I've only been watching because their jerseys say they play for the school I cheer for. As Nebraska basketball fans we know what it looks like for a team to play hard, even if they come up short. Even if we come up short on talent, most nights, the opponent was gonna earn it. That's the foundation. They have to at least do that. They didn't do that much before tonight. There were a few games I didn't get to watch, so perhaps it happened in those games, but tonight, they played harder than Indiana for most of the night. If get the message that needs to be the calling card, they'll win some games this year. Hopefully this isn't an abberration.
- Loved what we saw from Thor. I hope this lights the fire under Green when he comes back, too.
- They made some big shots in some big moments. There's more talent on this roster than people think.
- Burke had a great game. Cheatham came up in some big spots, too.
- Thought Ouedrago showed flashes of why the coaches are so high on him.
I left highly encouraged after tonight. Here's to more efforts like this one.
