MI sloppy play on both ends in 20-point loss at Nebraska

MI sloppy play on both ends in 20-point loss at Nebraska

Tuesday night, however, it looked like the Wolverines wanted nothing to do with Nebraska, delivering a lackluster performance on both ends of the floor in a 72-52 defeat at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Nebraska won its seventh game in its last nine by limiting MI to season lows in points (52), 3-pointers made (four) and 3-point percentage (22.2 percent).

"You could see tonight why Nebraska is 11-1 at home", MI head coach John Beilein said.

Wagner, who scored 27 points last Saturday against Michigan State and had reached double figures in all but two games, finished with a season-low two points, his only basket coming on a dunk early in the second half.

"There wasn't any inspirational teaching or positive reinforcement", Beilein said of his halftime speech.

A win like the one Nebraska got on Thursday night is why Miles might hold onto his job for awhile.

The No. 23 Michigan Wolverines (16-4) are coming from a 68-67 win over Maryland in which Moritz Wagner scored 18 points in 6 of 9 shooting from the field and 2 of 4 from the free throw line.

After a miserable first half in which MI was never able to get into a rhythm, the Wolverines had no answers in the second half as Nebraska used an 18-4 run to extend its lead to 49-31 with 11:59 to play.

"We take pride in it", he said.

"That was really good", Miles said of his team's defense.


Playing at Pinnacle Bank Arena should be a solid road test for the Wolverines.

Nebraska is 4-1 ATS with 4 unders and 1 over over their last five games. The last time they met, the Wolverines hung a 36-point loss on NU - the nastiest in 122 seasons of the sport in Lincoln.

Palmer was a no-show in the overtime loss to the Nittany Lions, and he believed he let his teammates down. We don't want to give them two. "I couldn't have two bad games in a row", Palmer told the Lincoln Journal Star after hitting the winning shot against the Illini. "It's a big game for us for sure". The Huskers and head coach Tim Miles have NCAA tournament aspirations and if they want any hope of being strongly considered for a bid, the Huskers will need to find a way to beat MI.

Roby finished with a career-high 14 points while also adding three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in his second consecutive start. Tshimanga had started the first 18 games.

The starting lineup change didn't do much to fix Nebraska's struggles as the Cornhuskers shot poorly and committed too many turnovers. The junior guard leads the Huskers in scoring with 15.7 points per game and ranks in the top 3 in almost every other category on the team.

But maybe more important for the long term, Tshimanga was back with the team practicing on Tuesday.

"I was happy for him", Miles said. "I don't think we'll be the last team to come out here and not come away with a win".

Tshimanga averages only 3.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
