Nebraska will lean on the trio of Glynn Watson Jr, Jack McVeigh and Jordy Tshimanga this season as the Cornhuskers look to rebound from last season’s 12-19 campaign and make their first postseason appearance since 2014. Another name to keep an eye on will be ESPN Top-100 recruit Thomas Allen who could provide a much needed spark to this team.
The Cornhuskers will need to make a huge leap forward this season in what figures to be a defining year for Tim Miles as head coach. After getting to the NCAA Tournament in 2014, Nebraska have since struggled to rise above the bottom of the Big Ten standings of the past few seasons. A reasonable goal for this team is a birth in the NIT with a trip to the NCAA Tournament serving as the ultimate goal. To obtain either, a significant improvement is needed on the offensive and defensive end of the floor.
It looks to be an exciting non-conference schedule as the Boston College Eagles (11/29) and Kansas Jayhawks (12/16) will both make trips to Lincoln. Both games will present opportunities for the Cornhuskers to obtain marquee victories over major conference opponents which will go a long way towards helping Nebraska return to postseason basketball.
The conference schedule will offer no easy games in a conference where any team looks capable of beating any team regardless of standings or rankings. In light of this the Huskers will need to get off to a fast start in the non-conference schedule and build up confidence for later in the season. Big Ten opponents Minnesota (12/5), Wisconsin (1/9), Illinois (1/15), Michigan (1/18), Iowa (1/27), Rutgers (2/10), Maryland (2/13), Indiana (2/20) and Penn State (2/25) will all make visits to Lincoln this season.
