NIT First Round: #6 Nebraska at #3 New Mexico Open Game Thread

Loading Scores

Nebraska Cornhuskers (18-12, 8-8 Big XII) at New Mexico Lobos (21-11, 12-4 MWC)

9 PM, The Pit, Albequerque, NM

TV: ESPNU; Radio: Husker Sports Network

Winner Plays: Notre Dame/UAB winner

This is an exciting bracket within the NIT -- Kentucky, New Mexico, and Notre Dame all have good hoops traditions, and two arch rivals -- Creighton and Nebraska -- could theoretically meet for a trip to New York.  It's quite a fun time.

Of course, none of that matters to Husker fans if New Mexico holds the home court tonight.  Nebraska will likely not play a game in the State of Nebraska before the regional finals, barring two upsets tonight.  We've struggled on the road at times, so let's hope that tonight is not one of those nights.

Ade is hobbled a bit, and was limited in practice tonight, but I don't expect it to slow him down.  If the Huskers lose, it's his last game anyway, so I expect him to give every little bit he has.  Same goes for everyone else -- one thing you can say about Doc Sadler's players is that they always give their all.

Join us tonight for what may be the final game of the season.  Hopefully, we can keep playing this weekend, maybe even in Lincoln.
