For many teams, there is a fine line between winning and losing. For Nebraska, last season that line stood 20 feet, 9 inches from the basket.
For sixth-year coach Tim Miles, the biggest focus for the offseason is shoring up the Huskers 3-point efforts. Last season, NU ranked 300th or worse in 3-pointers made, 3-point shooting and 3-point shooting defense last season. The Huskers’ 3-point woes and a pair of significant injuries limited the Huskers to a 12-19 campaign last year.
The season opens up with home games against Eastern Illinois and North Texas before NU travels to New York City for the first time in 2017-18 to face St. John’s in the Gavitt Games. Following a game with NCAA qualifier North Dakota, the Huskers trek to Orlando for three games at the AdvoCare Invitational.
