Nebraska coach Tim Miles says the Huskers may be down but they’re not out. Coming off a 93-57 loss to Michigan, the most lopsided home loss in program history, the Huskers play Penn State in the opening round of the Big Ten Tournament in Washington, D.C.
“We are a team that has been punched and we are trying to stop the bleeding so they won’t stop the fight”, said Miles. “We just have to get up and keep going forward.”
Nebraska won the only regular-season meeting between the schools, posting an 82-66 victory in Lincoln on Feb. 14. Miles says the tournament serves as a fresh start and they need something good to happen early.
“You need success early and you need to feel it and get momentum on our side.”
The Huskers (12-18, 6-12 Big Ten) look to snap a four-game losing streak while Penn State (14-17, 6-12 Big Ten) has dropped its last five games, including a 90-79 loss at Iowa on Sunday afternoon.
Tipoff in the Verizon Center is 3:30p.m.
