NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

I can’t really tell but I think the Husker men’s basketball team might either be on the cusp of getting out of their funk or are just not going to have any game go their way this season.

It’s kind of hard to tell as they have a good game against Michigan where they lose. A game where they come so close and all the talents that are there on paper came through for the most part.

But, they once again could not keep it up to win. Michigan did respond well in the second half. I tip my hat to that.

Nebraska still needs to figure out how to win. The amount of games left are fleeting. Once again, there are not easy wins in the Big Ten this year. The Huskers will have to make it happen.

Will we win again this year?

Will it matter?
