Kent State Hands Huskers First Loss of Season.

Eric Francis

Dylan Talley has career game, but Husker offense comes up lacking in first loss of season.

Nebraska (4-1), who had exceeded the expectations of many by starting the season 4-0, were brought back to earth in a flash, a Golden Flash, that is. The Huskers dropped their first game of the year 74-60 to Kent St (4-2). The Huskers were led by Dylan Talley who scored a career high 27. Brandon Ubel also chipped in with 17 in the losing effort.

The Huskers have seen a fairly steady performance from their two main leaders this season. They will need some one else to step up and contribute if they are going to remain competitive. It doesn't even need to be the same player every game, but no other player contributed more than 6 points and other than Talley and Ubel, the Huskers only scored 16 points.

Conversely, Kent St. had three players top the 16 mark and had three others score seven. Nebraska needs to see a similar score sheet from game to game if they intend to have any success this season. And they'll need to find that player quickly as the competition will step up in short order. The Huskers step out on the road for the first time on Tuesday as they will face Wake Forest in the Big Ten/ACC challenge. The game will be carried on ESPNU at 8:15.
