The Huskers came into today’s game just a tad over 24 hours since their last. As much as you would wish that they would have had plenty of time to rest up, they didn’t exactly look like it.
Mind you, Nevada is not McNeese State and did match up fairly well against the Huskers. However, The Huskers started out slow and struggled off and on throughout the game making their shots. It was noticeable early on that they would not be reaching anywhere close to the 102 they had yesterday against the Cowboys.
Nebraska struggled this game. Only shooting 29% from the floor and 22% from the three point line. A far cry form the 50% form the floor and 41% from the three yesterday. No, Nebraska didn’t have the energy in this game. It was also fairly sloppy as the game went on with both teams struggling with fouls. 24 total for the Huskers and 27 for Nevada.
Give Nevada some credit. They had a game plan that worked. It wasn’t anything special, but they took advantage of Nebraska’s weaknesses and pulled off the win. Nebraska and Nevada were tied with six seconds left and Grant Sherfield hit the final three of the game to win it for the Wolfpack. The Huskers could not tie it up with Dalano Banton missing his final three to end the game.
Leading Nebraska was guard Dalano Banton who had 18 points, 5 assists, and 7 rebounds. Next to him was Teddy Allen who had 17 points and 6 rebounds. Kobe Webster came off the bench strong and ended the game with 13 points and 3 steals.
The Huskers will play their second and final game of the Golden Window Tournament on Saturday against North Dakota State at 11:00am cst on BTN.
