Game Updates: KU-Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. - In two contests combined a year ago, Kansas slugged Nebraska by a total tally of 168-95. In Lincoln, the Jayhawks opened up the game on a 43-8 run. In Lawrence, Nebraska shot just 33.3 percent from the floor and 15 percent from three-point range. If that trend seeped into 2008, that'd be just fine with Bill Self's squad. But tonight in Lincoln's Devaney Center, the Huskers have quite a bit to play for, as the two tip-off tonight at 8 p.m. KU strolls north carrying a perfect 15-0 mark following non-conference play, including a 3-0 road record so far this season. Nebraska has held its weight through the pre-conference slate, going 11-2, with head-turning wins over Arizona State (62-47) and Oregon (88-79 OT). Though a signature win over Kansas would certainly add a spicy kick to the Huskers' potential NCAA Tournament resume. Read more »
