The Nebraska basketball team looks for its second road win of the season, as the Huskers travel to Fort Worth, Texas, to take on TCU this Saturday, Dec. 10. Tipoff at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum is set for 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on The MTN, the Mountain West Conference’s Sports Network.
The Huskers look to build some momentum following Wednesday’s one-point win over Florida Gulf Coast. The Huskers, who are 5-3 on the season, needed clutch shooting from guard Dylan Talley, who came off the bench to score 14 points, including the game-winner with 10.4 seconds left. NU also received a strong inside effort from junior forward Brandon Ubel, who finished with 10 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for his first career double-double to help snap a two-game losing streak. It was a bounce back night for both players, as neither scored in Sunday’s loss at Creighton.
The Huskers will need to turn in a solid performance in picking up their second road win of the season on Saturday. Nebraska has showed the ability to play well away from home, picking up a double-overtime win at USC before battling then No. 22 Creighton to a one-point game with 9:30 remaining before losing.
TCU has been an early-season surprise, as the Horned Frogs are 7-2 on the season, including wins over Virginia, Houston and Texas Tech. The Horned Frogs are riding a four-game win streak following a 75-69 win over Texas Tech Tuesday night, as J.R. Cadot and Garlon Green had 18 points apiece in the victory.
The Horned Frogs feature one of the best point guards in the Mountain West in Hank Thorns, who averages 13.0 points and 4.7 assists per game and guides an attack that has four players averaging in double figures.
