NBA: Chicago Bulls at Memphis Grizzlies Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

As you will find out below, Nebraska basketball lost it’s “secret scrimmage” to Wichita State on Saturday. I would not look too deep into that as very little can be taken out of them as they are not played like normal games. It sounds like the Huskers lost it on the glass which will be a problem as the season goes on.

Cam Mack lead the team with 17 points and six rebounds. He’s a talent and we will most likely see this type of production from him this year. Matej Kavas followed Cam with 15 points and right behind him was Jervay Green with 14. Expect to see a lot from these three this year.

The Huskers come home to take on Doane University this Wednesday in an exhibition. This should be a better showing of what they will be like during the regular season which Starts on November 5th against UC Riverside. It will not be on TV but you can pick it up on the radio if you are not going to the game.
