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.

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".

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.

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.

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.
