Husker Librarian's Preview:
Regular Season Meetings:

  • Jan. 30: Nebraska 66,  @Missouri 62;
  • Feb. 13: Missouri 86, @Nebraska 78 (OT)


Nebraska's played extremely well since losing to Mizzou in February.  Missouri has been horribly inconsistent down the stretch, since losing leading scorer Stephon Hannah following the barfight just before the first NU-MU game in January.  In Lincoln, Nebraska went scoreless at the end of the first half, and missed several key free throws in the second half.  These teams are fairly well-matched, so it should be a tight game.  Both teams really need a win to feel safe about an NIT berth, though the loser may still be safe from CBI-land.  The winner gets the worst prize ever -- a second-round matchup with KU.


  • Prediction: Nebraska, 66-65.
- Winner plays: #2 Kansas, 6:00 PM Friday, ESPN+

  • If we win we get to play Kansas. Instead of looking at that with a negative perspective - look at it this way - it's a great measuring stick to see where this Nebraska team is from the beginning of the Big 12 to the end. Did we grow? Are we better? A coach couldn't ask for a better setup - but first we have to get there.
