Aleks Maric scored 28, with eight rebounds as the Husker men improved to 12-5 and 1-2 in the Big 12. Next up are the Longhorns coming to Lincoln Wednesday night.
The biggest story in Lincoln is the Husker women's basketball team. They continue to kick butt, beating Mizzou on the road 76-66, after leading at the half 46-27.
Check this out:
The sign of a great team - winning on the road. The sign of a team that needs to work - giving up big leads, like Nebraska has done the last two games.
Earlier in the week, Nebraska lead #25 KSU by a heavy margin only to see it evaporate in the second half. KSU came within three points before the Huskers put them away. Tonight, Mizzou came back to cut the big halftime lead to six before putting the Tigers away.
The Nebraska women should be ranked starting next week. Howgood are they? Time will tell, but it'd be great to see them continue to win throughout the Big 12 season and become a force on the national scene. Why not? Nebraska certainly has the infrastructure to field a winning women's basketball team. Nebraska women are a special lot, perhaps it's time it started showing up on the basketball court.
