This type of game certainly plays to Nebraska's favor.

The Cats don't exactly love to push the basketball, but Nebraska – the less-talented team – just wants to hang around. 

Huskers have some big bodies, though I don't think anyone can guard Swopshire when he's on his game. 

7-5 NU at the second media timeout. Unimpressive so far, but all Big Ten road games are tough.

Swopshire has been excellent this afternoon. 7 points and 9 boards for the senior.

Sobolewski providing a spark as well. Knocked down three triples in the first half to keep NU in it. 

Quiet performances from Hearn and a lack of offensive production, though, are leading to serious struggles for Northwestern.

With 16:38 left in the second half, this tricky Nebraska team leads 28-26.

This type of performance is exactly what you get with this system when the 3-pointers aren't falling. No offensive punch, no inside presence, no transition scoring. That really looked bad from where I was sitting.
