As a Nebraska fan, I just can’t say enough about how excited I am about the remainder of the regular season and tournaments. I also just want to say thank you to the B1G. Joining has been the push that our basketball program needed to take the next step up. Sure we lost to Illinois a couple of days back but they played a great game at home and deserved to win. We have to get focused on the next game and try to get to 21 or 22 wins and have a chance for the NCAA tournament. I also want to add that this B1G tournament is going to be a monster. I would not miss it!

IU upsetting Iowa wasn’t an upset. Iowa isn’t very good.
