Harris is 4 of 11 with 9 points and is their leading scorer.
UPDATE: Nebraska wins, 60-51.
We're not lucky enough for Nebraska to pull this off. Are we?
But...it is 2014 and all. So, there's always a chance.
It would be an awesome Sparty, No! moment if they derped away the gift we just gave them.
But waaaay too soon for upset alerts.
Way to early for this thread.
Why the FUCK would you post this? Neg this man
Superstitious people annoy me...
Chill the hell out. If MSU comes back and wins this game it certainly won't be due to this thread.
Thanks for the heads up OP, some of us were not aware the game was on right now. I will turn it on.
State will most likely pull away and win convincingly.
The reverse jinx worked, you're welcome guys.
Nebraska still looks good but there's still 12 min to go. 6 pt game now.
So much for the upset alert. Sparty is lucky the didn't play a good team today.
Remember the "Nebraska is smoking Ohio State" thread a couple weeks ago? Nebraska won that game too. Let's change the thread title to "Nebraska smoking Sparty".
Some weak ass calls on Nebraska, especially when going for loose balls.
sparty refs rearing their heads
7 fouls on Nebraska and 0 on MSU. If it were more consistent Nebraska would be up by 10.
Nebraska is shooting 9-16 from the FT line. They have shot 8 more FTs than MSU on the road. I don't think officiating is the problem right now.
That's because Nebraska was attacking the basket. + there are two halves. There were 3 calls in a row on Nebraska going for 50/50 loose balls where there was no foul, including a steal after an MSU defensive rebound.
Either way, it was only a 4 point difference in score lol I was more upset when Sparty got in the bonus with 11 minutes to play.
Named Kaminsky/Kaminski today
Tim miles is a really good basketball coach. Nebraska is going to be good in 2-3 years.
That would be great! I like Tim Miles. He seems like a good dude.
Miles is my favorite non-Beilein B1G coach.
why they do not go to Payne EVERY play. Either a puppy or he moves it around off the double team for an open three.
just drained a huge three
Fouled Harris on a desperation 3. Awful.
fucking hell that dumb foul will cost them
Is content allowing Sparty to come back and win by bailing them out and just forcing up long bullshit jumpers every possession
All 3 pointers and long 2s. Petteway is the biggest culprit, but he has been forced into some of them by the shot clock.
I don't know how he's made a few of them.
Nebraska needs to attach the rim and the refs need to call fouls.
I'm no expert when it comes to basketball rules, but attaching yourself to the rim seems like it would be goaltending.
Seems to me the strategy is as follows:
1. Deny him the ball. This will work a little bit, and requires tight defense on the ball handler.
2. Immediately double to him if he gets the ball inside about 10 feet or so.
3. Work your butts off to follow the kicked ball around to the open guy.
4. Try hard to get him in foul trouble. Earlier is better.
This is a whole lot of list that we haven't yet done well.
Petteway! Dude is money.
about anyone else. What about are NBA "ready" line-up. That was a disgrace at home. Lavert is a stud.
What the hell are you trying to say?
Nebraska is just not playing smart enough to win this game. Offensive strategy: avoid the area inside the 3 PT line like the plague. Defensive strategy: foul badly.
I'm tempering my excitement...but it's getting hard.
Sorry I couldn't resist.
Come on Nebraska, close this baby out!
It feels good to be the little bastard that just won't go away (in the Big Ten standings that is)
bad shot selection for Spartoons. Huskers by 7 with :45
Well this game is over. Good effort Staee
Edit: They just call it a 1 and 1 out of nowhere lol
MSU ball again
and Sparty says "no, thanks."
Nebraska should be on the bubble list now.
Nebraska just bailed us out so hard.
Wow! Didn't see this coming. Great work Petteway and Nebraska.
