The Nebraska men are searching for their first Big 12 win of the year, they’re in Colorado tonight to take on the Buffaloes, who are just 10-9 on the year and 1-4 in Big 12 play. Inexperience has been the key for the NU men. In all four of their conference losses, they’ve been within four with nine minutes to play in every loss. They just need to learn how to finish.
According to Huskers.com, NU needs to bump up the offensive output. Colorado comes into the contest averaging 77.2 points per game in conference play. The Buffs have hit nearly 49 % from the floor, including better than 38 % from three point range. While the Buffaloes are fourth in scoring offense in league-only games, they are last in scoring defense by allowing 83.6 points per game.
Last year in Boulder, points were hard to come by as both teams struggled to find the twine as NU won 46-41 marking the fewest combined points scored in a Big 12 game.
