Husker Hoops Game #24: Colorado at Nebraska Open Game Thread

Loading Scores

Colorado Buffaloes (9-15, 1-9) at Nebraska Cornhuskers (15-8, 5-5)

8:05 PM, Bob Devaney Sports Center, Lincoln, NE

TV: ESPNU (Webcast on ESPN360); Radio: Husker Sports Network

Despite suffering their first blowout loss of the season, the Huskers still have the opportunity to win their way into the NCAA Tournament.  Sure, it's going to be hard -- they'll probably need to go 5-1 in their remaining 6 games to get an at-large berth.  The focus may be on stealing wins at Kansas, Kansas State, or Baylor, but a loss to Colorado, Iowa State, or Texas A&M at home would be devastating to the Huskers' at-large hopes.

The more realistic step forward, a non-losing Big XII record, still requires the Huskers to win their remaining home games.  Tonight's the first, against a Colorado team that pushed Oklahoma and Kansas to the brink and Texas into overtime, and took the Huskers to the wire in Boulder two weeks ago.

At this point, the Huskers are playing for either an NCAA at-large bid or a 1- or 2-seed in the NIT (and thus at least 2 home games should they keep winning).  Every game is big -- even Colorado.
