2018 is approaching quickly and the Huskers men’s basketball squad is 9-5 overall. Their only home loss thus far being a missed buzzer shot against Kansas, which would have been a hefty accolade as they try to build a case for the NCAA tourney.
Below, I have built a split chart showcasing how those wins have come over the first 14 games.
- Nebraska has played very well at home. They are currently 7-1 at home with their only loss a tight game against an always-talented Jayhawks team.
- They have not played as well in away games. Now, it must be noted they have only played three away games so far, but they are 0-3 in those games and lost by large margins. Also noteworthy is all of these were against talented teams: St. John’s, Michigan St., and Creighton. As of this post, both Michigan St. and Creighton are in the AP Top 25 and while St. John’s is not — they are ranked 19th in RPI.
- At neutral sites, Nebraska is 2-1, so they can win away from Lincoln and need to during Big Ten play in order to build a worthy March resume. Go Big Red.
