Nebraska Basketball Post Game Knee-Jerk Reactions: Buckeyes 71, Huskers 67

The Huskers had a 3 point lead at halftime, and up to a 18 point lead in the second half. And then things like officiating, momentum, and a bunch of other stuff didn't help the Huskers keep the lead.

Well, damnit.

- Fouls: Ohio State 21 committed, Nebraska 26 committed. 
- Free Throws: Ohio St. 17-28, Huskers 17-20
- Field Goal %: Huskers 36.7%, Buckeyes 45.5%

We are all upset about the way that game ended, for sure. Be mindful of being kind to those that are coming in to comment.
