LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Isaiah Roby had a double-double to lead Nebraska to a 59-50 win over Northwestern on Saturday night. But that wasn't all Roby contributed to the victory
"He had those two blocks early and kind of sent a message," said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. Then he went away for a while from that rim protection type of thing. But boy he ended the game with a flourish.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — This breakout season for Nebraska has broken down.
The Cornhuskers sat 11-2 on New Year's Day, were in the national polls for the first time since 2014 and on pace to have their highest scoring team since the mid-1990s. They were playing like the team that was picked fourth in the Big Ten, and their nonconference resume prompted some early NCAA Tournament forecasters to pencil them in as high as a No. 3 seed.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Tim Miles didn't divulge his game plan for defending Montez Mathis. Asked what the game plan was, and how Mathis handled it, the Nebraska coach didn't feel the need to share his faulty formula.
"He did just fine," Miles said. "So apparently my game plan didn't matter."
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Glynn Watson Jr. stayed when everybody else from his recruiting class left.
Don't think the fourth-year starting point guard hasn't imagined how sweet it would be if Nebraska makes good on buzz around college basketball about the Cornhuskers finally having a team capable of not just making the NCAA Tournament, but also making a run.
Two years ago, that would have been silly talk. Losses were piling up, players were fleeing and coach Tim Miles' job status was in question.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Nebraska found itself in the zone Monday night.
The No. 25 Indiana Hoosiers looked completely befuddled.
As Glynn Watson Jr. scored 15 points, Isaac Copeland added 14 and James Palmer flirted with a triple double, it was a smothering defense that helped Nebraska pull away for a 66-51 upset — its second straight victory on the Hoosiers' home court.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Isaiah Roby scored like he never had before, but that was just the beginning of what he did for Nebraska in its school-record 20th straight home win.
Roby had a career-high 22 points and season highs of 11 rebounds and four blocks as the Cornhuskers beat Penn State 70-64 Thursday night.
"He was the one guy who had great energy, great body language and was aggressive the whole night through, and you could see it in his line," Nebraska coach Tim Miles said.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska finished a three-games-in-three-weeks lull with an easy win over Division II Southwest Minnesota and now get set to resume Big Ten play with three of four games on the road.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Tim Miles knows that playing games during winter break can be a struggle, learning that lesson a couple of years ago when the Cornhuskers lost to Samford on Dec. 20.
No. 25 Nebraska avoided another holiday slip-up on Saturday, defeating Cal State Fullerton 86-62 behind 23 points from James Palmer Jr. and 10 points and 10 assists from Glynn Watson Jr.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Cornhuskers are a hungry and humble basketball team.
Hungry because they just missed out on making the NCAA Tournament last season despite winning 22 games, setting a school record with 13 conference wins and finishing fourth in the Big Ten.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska, in basketball, is now a red state.
The No. 24 Cornhuskers left no doubt, turning in their best performance of the season against Creighton, their in-state rival from Omaha.
James Palmer made three of his career-best six 3-pointers in the first three minutes and finished with 30 points, and the Huskers won 94-75 on Saturday night to end a seven-game losing streak in the series.
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Isaac Copeland Jr. wasn't about to let this resume-builder slip away for Nebraska.
The Cornhuskers had watched Clemson cut an eight-point lead down to 66-64 in the final seconds and made sure his teammates knew it was time toughen up. "We're winning this game. We're winning this game," Copeland, a senior, shouted in the huddle.
"Chill out, bro, chill out," James Palmer told his teammate, according to Nebraska coach Tim Miles.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Texas Tech made every possession a grind, fought for every loose ball, dominated in the paint and imposed its will on Nebraska in a throwback to the old days of the rough-and-tumble Big 12.
All that fight produced a title in the Hall of Fame Classic.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Latest on the Hall of Fame Classic (all times local):
Jarrett Culver poured in 26 points, Matt Mooney scored 15 and Texas Tech overcame a slow start to beat Nebraska 70-52 on Tuesday night in the title game of the Hall of Fame Classic.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — James Palmer couldn't make a shot the first 16 minutes against Seton Hall. He couldn't seem to miss the next 24.
Nebraska's All-Big Ten guard overcame his cold start to score 29 points, including a huge 3-pointer after Seton Hall pulled close in the second half, and the Cornhuskers pulled away for an 80-57 win Wednesday night.
The Huskers (3-0) ended a seven-game losing streak against opponents from the Big East with their dominant performance in the Gavitt Tipoff Games.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska overwhelmed Southeastern Louisiana Sunday, taking control of the game with a 22-0 first-half run and never letting the Lions make any kind of a comeback.
That pleased coach Tim Miles, as did a similar effort Tuesday when the Huskers downed Mississippi Valley State by 69.
Last season: 22-11, lost in first round of NIT.
Coach: Tim Miles.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Guard Evan Taylor, center Jordy Tshimanga, guard Anton Gill, center Duby Okeke.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Tim Miles was out of town this summer when he received a surprise text from Glynn Watson Jr. that touched his emotions.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Less than a month after being named associate head coach at Florida, Armon Gates was introduced Monday as an assistant on Tim Miles' staff at Nebraska.
"It was a big-time whirlwind for me," Gates said at a news conference.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Robert Morris guard Dachon Burke is transferring to Nebraska, where he'll have two seasons of eligibility after sitting out 2018-19.
Nebraska coach Tim Miles on Monday announced the addition of Burke, who picked the Cornhuskers over St. John's, Pittsburgh and Marquette.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Tim Miles has been given a one-year contract extension through 2020-21 after leading the Cornhuskers to their most conference wins in a season.
The Huskers were 22-11 and played in the National Invitation Tournament. Their 13-5 record in Big Ten play was good for fourth place, tied with national runner-up Michigan.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Coach Tim Miles will be back for a seventh season at Nebraska and talks about a contract extension will begin after the NCAA Final Four, athletic director Bill Moos said Tuesday.
Miles is 97-97 with one NCAA Tournament appearance in six years. Moos, hired away from Washington State in October, said he liked what he saw this season as the Cornhuskers went 22-11 and finished tied with Final Four-bound Michigan for fourth place in the Big Ten.
