This season did not go the way Nebraska was hoping for. Entering Fred Hoiberg’s 3rd season with the program and with some key additions, the Huskers were hoping to see a boost in production.

Unfortunately, that did not materialize for much of the season as the team finished tied for last place in the B1G and posted a 10-21 overall record. At one point, Nebraska lost 10 straight and 14 of 15 in conference play.

However, after a flurry of wins to end the season, Nebraska enters the B1G Tournament as one of the hottest teams around. The Huskers ended the year on a 3-game winning streak with upset wins over Ohio State and Wisconsin.

Heading into Indianapolis, Alonzo Verge Jr. admitted this season did not go according to plan. However, Verge also said the team’s mindset is that it is not too late to put things together for a magical run in March.

Steven M. Sipple with the Lincoln Journal Star shared Verge’s comments:

First on the docket is a game vs. Northwestern Wednesday evening in first-round action in Indy. The Huskers lost both regular-season matchups to the Wildcats by double-digits.

It truly is now or never this year for Nebraska. Wednesday’s tip-off is set for 6 pm EST on BTN.
