Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Michigan Wolverines 3/5/2020
For Nebraska, there is no way to go but up. The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been dismal this season and no reprieve is in sight. Their defense is seen to be the big problem, failing to contain opposing teams to less than 70 points. Offense leaves a lot to be desired as well. Nebraska is simply lost and head coach Fred Hoiberg has yet to come up with something to turn things around.
Players to watch: H. Cheatham G (29 GP 31.8 MIN 12.6 PTS 3.8 REB 1.4 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 1.2 TO 48 FG% 66.1 FT% 35 3PT%), D. Burke Jr. G (28 GP 28 MIN 12.1 PTS 3.5 REB 1.3 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 1.5 TO 40.3 FG% 55.6 FT% 29.6 3PT%), C. Mack G (28 GP 34.8 MIN 12 PTS 4.5 REB 6.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.4 BLK 2.6 TO 38.6 FG% 56.9 FT% 33.9 3PT%).
Having dropped two games in a row, the Wolverines have a chance to finally end the losing. They hold the advantage on both ends of the floor. Offensively, they have more than one player who can light it up. Zavier Simpson and Isaiah Livers are capable of delivering points for the Wolverines. Curiously, Michigan is one of the better defensive teams this season. But that dissipated in the last two games. Things could be different Thursday.
