Huskers lead Penn State at halftime in a low scoring game

Is it tough defense, bad shooting, or both? Penn State shooting 30.8%, Nebraska 38.7%. 28-22 at halftime.

Good 2nd half for the Huskers (40-27) en route to a 68-49 home victory.

Crowd was “reserved” today. But a win is a win. This was a game the Huskers could not afford to lose and they didn’t.

Yeah, I noticed that the crowd never seemed to get really loud, even when Tominaga was waving his arms at them to pump up the volume.

It was the little things that added up in this game, Sam Hoiberg had IMHO one of his best games, though the stats sheet might not reflect that.

The Huskers are #49 in the NET ranking today. That means they’d be a Q1 opponent at a neutral site like the Big Ten Championships.
