Hoosiers bracing for Huskers in season finale

In its last game of the season, the Indiana Hoosiers will square off against a Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball team that is looking for its first NCAA Tournament bid since 1998. Both teams have 17 wins on the season.

Indiana coach Tom Crean hopes to send off his seniors with a Big Ten victory, but said the Cornhuskers are playing as well as anyone in the league right now.


“They can beat you in a lot of different ways. In watching game film today, they can win with the 2-man game, the 3-man game, defense, 3-point shooting. What you can’t do is make mistakes around them. They shoot an incredible amount of free throws when they win.”


“So they are an extremely aggressive basketball team. They put shooters and drivers on the court and they really know how to play with one another. Tim (Miles) is an excellent coach and it is going to be an absolute battler. There is no question. They beat us and we will remember that as will they.”


This will be the 13th meeting for these two teams, and the fourth since Nebraska joined the Big Ten.
