Huskers Want to Live by the 3, But They're Mostly Dying

March 7, 2020

Nebraska still has one game left in the regular season, but nothing the Huskers are likely do against Minnesota and in the Big Ten Tournament will be enough to move the needle.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but this is the worst 3-point shooting team Fred Hoiberg has ever had as a college coach. Nebraska is shooting 32.3% from deep this season; all of Hoiberg’s teams at Iowa State shot better than 35%.

Even that first team in Ames that went 16-16 shot 36.8% overall. The transition team adapted to Hoiberg’s style almost immediately as the Cyclones led the Big 12 in 3-point attempts, hoisting up 380 of them in 16 leagues games while conceding a a 35.
