Immediate Reaction: Nebraska-Northwestern

January 8, 2017

Sharing a few quick thoughts about Nebraska's 74-66 loss to the Northwestern Wildcats.

First Half

  1. Northwestern freshman center Barret Benson played for the Illinois Wolves, Glynn Watson Jr.’s AAU team. Watson is a year older, obviously, but Benson played up a grade at times with Watson.
  2. Put-back for Michael Jacobson three minutes in. The Huskers emphasized crashing the offensive glass big-time during this run to start Big Ten play.
  3. The Huskers had a 12-3 lead in rebounding with 12:30 left in the first half.
