Huskers Men’s Basketball Can’t Stop Michigan State

Huskers Men’s Basketball Can’t Stop Michigan State
NU's Anton Gill said the inconsistent play is frustrating, but not surprising considering Nebraska’s re-rack of its playing rotation from last season with four first-time contributors and Gill coming off a major knee injury. “Yeah, we’re still trying to figure it all out. But as long as we defend, we’ll be in every game,” Gill said. (World-Herald News Service)

James Palmer Jr. had a team-high 15 points, but NU was unable to slow down third-ranked Michigan State’s frontline in a 86-57 loss Sunday afternoon.

Palmer led the Huskers with 15 and three assists, but Nebraska (6-3, 0-1 Big Ten) shot just 27.4 percent on the day in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

The Huskers return home on Tuesday night, as they host No. 12 Minnesota. Tipoff at PBA is set for 8 p.m.
