Nebraska Basketball: Huskers Hit A Buzzsaw, Loses To Maryland 97-86 In Big Ten Tournament

The Huskers were good. The Terps were better, way better.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers fought hard. They never gave up. They were down by 25 and was able to cut it to 6 with a minute to go. But couldn't finish the come back. The Huskers have to be proud of their effort, and Husker fans should be too. Nebraska made an incredible run in the Big Ten Tournament and didn't quit. Tim Miles did a great job keeping this team together this season. Nebraska will be even better next season, even without Shavon Shields.

The Good

Nebraska played really hard. But the Maryland Terrapins and their hot shooting was too much to answer. Andrew White III led the way with 25 points and had some key 3 pointers in the comeback. Shavon Shields had 19 points and Tai Webster had 17 points. Glenn Watson Jr. had points off the bench. Hopefully this wasn't the last game of the season for Nebraska. The Huskers will most likely accept a bid for the CBI or the Las Vegas 16 postseason tournaments. This will be good for experience next season. As well as giving seniors Benny Parker and Shavon Shields more games to play in their final season at Nebraska. We will find out later this weekend if they accept a postseason bid.

The Bad

Maryland was just so hot shooting all night long. I was personally surprised they didn't score 100 points. And it wasn't like Nebraska was playing bad defense, because they didn't. Maryland just shot the ball so well all night. They shot 60% from the field and shot 13-22 from 3. That's 59%. They were 9/10 from 3 at the half. Yes, 90%. It just wasn't Nebraska's night tonight. But again, this team never gave up. They fought hard. They should hold their heads high after this game.

Well that will do it for the Nebraska Basketball season. We will see if they will accept a postseason bid. Hopefully they do, because it's more Nebraska Basketball! Stay tuned to CornNation for future updates.
