Head Coach Tim Miles, Nebrasketball fans and probably even the players themselves were anxious to see what this young Husker squad was made of. They faced their stiffest challenge of the season to date as they hosted the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. LA Tech featured a lineup chalk full of athletes and talented basketball players. The Huskers handled it well as Tai Webster and Jack McVeigh both set career highs, each topping 20 points, leading the Huskers to a 65-54 victory.
The win moved NU to 3-0 on the young season. While the Huskers handled the challenge vs. the Bulldogs, the difficulty ratchets up significantly as the Huskers venture away from Pinnacle Bank Arena for the first time this season over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Huskers will take on a perennial tournament team in the Dayton Flyers to open play on Thursday evening. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 and will be televised on ESPNU and WatchESPN.
