See that guy? He has a milestone tonight. Shavon Shields is starting in his 100th game for the Huskers. Only one other player, Dave Hoppen, has done that. Dave played 111 games for the Big Red between 1982-86. That was back when the classic albums Milo Goes to College by the Descendants and Bad Brains by Bad Brains came out. It really was a great year.
Shields journey started on January 6th, 2013. That day ended in a loss to Wisconsin so hopefully he gets his 100th with a win.
KenPom has Nebraska having an 80% chance of beating the Golden Gophers 76-68. I've sent them a thank you bouquet of flowers.

Brew of the Game:
It's Minnesota and if you've followed me you know I like a few of their beers. Tonight we will dine with Surly's Hell. It's a nice lager for any occasion and is a big step up from most domestics in this category. Surprisingly so since most micros do not tend to put much effort into these.
One of two in school history. Congrats Shavon. ✊ pic.twitter.com/mFtaqCdvQc— Nebraska Basketball (@HuskerHoops) January 13, 2016
