All of a sudden, there's buzz around Husker Hoops, and for good reason.  The Huskers have a three-game winning streak, an above-.500 record in league, and a realistic shot of making the NCAA tournament.  Unfortunately, they are headed to Columbia to face a red-hot top-20 opponent in Mizzou.  Traditionally, Mizzou Arena has been a place where NU loses.

Well, until recently.  The Huskers have won their last two trips to Columbia, and have dominated the Tigers recently.  That means nothing, of course, when these Tigers are much better than last year's vintage.  But, the Huskers know they can win, and won't be intimidated.

The Huskers aren't expected to win this one, but if they do, it will be huge for their postseason chances.  Right now, they're being overshadowed by Kansas State in the tourney talk, and they need some way to distinguish themselves from the Wildcats, since it's unlikely both will get in.  Getting a big road win is a good way to start.
