Tim Miles embarrassed himself in front of the fans at the United Center, people viewing on Big Ten Network and anyone else with a Twitter account. But my guess is he doesn’t care.
Nebraska used a 15-0 run late in Wednesday night’s B1G Tournament opener to defeat Rutgers in Chicago. The Huskers posted a 68-61 victory over the Scarlet Knights, thanks in large part to 34 points from James Palmer Jr.
After the game, Miles was running off the court, celebrating a big win. He was high-fiving fans and waving to the crowd as he entered the tunnel. And that’s when the Nebraska head coach lost his balance.
Miles went head over tea kettle and disappeared off the Big Ten Network television cameras. But even though he endured an embarrassing moment, he was still in incredibly high spirits.

That probably hurt a little bit, but Miles was so excited after the win that he didn’t show the pain.
With the win, Nebraska advances to the next round of the B1G Tournament. The Huskers will take on Maryland on Thursday, a team they went 0-2 against in the regular season.
If Nebraska somehow pulls off the upset tomorrow, someone better keep an eye on Miles.
