    GAME #20 vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers (12-7, 0-4 Big 12)

    • Date: Wednesday, Jan. 27

    • Tipoff : 8:07 p.m. (MST)

    • Television: FSN Rocky Mountain • Announcers: Tom Helmer (p-b-p), Ceal Barry (analyst), Alanna Rizzo (sideline)

    • Location: Coors Events Center (11,064)

    • CU Radio: KKZN 760-AM: Mark Johnson (p-b-p), Charles Johnson (analyst); Sirius Channel 127

    • Series vs. Nebraska: Cornhuskers lead 76-68; 16-11 in Big 12 play. NU has won three straight, five of last seven; CU is 8-5 in Boulder and has won three of the last four games.

    QUICKLY: CU enters the week among the nation's best in a variety of categories: fourth nationally in FT percentage (.768), 17th in FG% (.486), 46th in steals per game (8.4), 49th in scoring offense (76.7) • CU is 9-1 at home matching the 2005-06 season after 10 games. CU began the 2005-06 home season 10-1 • CU has shot 50 percent or better in three of five Big 12 games (.505), both conference games at home (.515) • Cory Higgins leads the Buffaloes in scoring in conference play (19.0 ppg.) and is shooting 55.0 percent from the field in league contests - first on the team and third in the Big 12.

    INJURY UPDATE: Coach Jeff Bzdelik said freshman Keegan Hornbuckle (shoulder) underwent an MRI exam on Tuesday. His status for Wednesday's game depends on results of that test. Junior Marcus Relphorde (bruised hip) did not practice Monday, but worked on Tuesday. His status depends on Tuesday's work, but likely will be a game-time decision. Bzdelik said he was "cautiously optimistic" Relphorde would be ready to play.

    HUSKER 'D' TOUGH: Bzdelik said Nebraska, which leads the Big 12 in scoring defense (60.4 points a game), is so effective because "they do a great job of staying in front of you" and making an opponent execute. The Huskers usually don't switch defenses, Bzdelik said. "They just dig in and do one thing -- and do it very well." Offensively, Nebraska is last in scoring offense (67.4) and features only one player in double figures. But Bzdelik says that is misleading. When points are protracted over 30 or minutes of game time, "They've got guys who can score," he said.

    HUSKER UPDATE: After starting the season with a 12-3 record after nonconference play, Nebraska has now lost its first four Big 12 games by an average of 10.7 points. Nebraska is 1-4 on the road with two of those losses coming in conference play. NU has lost at Texas A&M (64-53) and at Missouri (70-53) and at home to Kansas (84-72) and Iowa State (56-53). The 'Huskers are shooting only 39.3 percent in conference play and averaging 57.8 points per game. Doc Sadler enters his fourth year in Lincoln (67-47, .588) and the team is coming off an NIT appearance a year ago.

    Go Buffs! Much better to watch this than the State of the Union! We all know the state of the union. The Buff continue to grow up and get better!

    Honestly think this game is about as close to a must-win as you can get in late January. We lose this one at home and I have trouble finding victories the rest of the way. On the other hand, we win tonight and I could see us going into Ames on Saturday to win two straight before a really tough six-game stretch.

    Oh great! FSR-RM has tech difficulties ... and we are reduced to essentially a radio broadcast.

    at least it's on. ESPN360 is blacking out a lot of the bigger CU/Big XII games. **** 360. i thought it was great last year but, like every thing with ESPN, it comes with a "screwing".

    let's keep putting it on these guys. no let up.

    Nebaska's uni's with the black are very "90's". bugmunchers are always ahead of the curve.

    49-35 and Nate's got a 1-1 after the timeout. 11:48 to play. No one in serious foul trouble. Need to make our FTs and play good D. Close this out strong!!!

    well since Harrison and Billups didn't play 4 years....that would disclude them. but accounts for almost 45% of the votes.

    gotta keep the lead in the 12-16 or blowout range....nothing back inside single digits and get lazy when they go pressure.

    i do think Doc Sadler is a pretty good coach.

    Up 57-39 with 8:45 to go. Looking pretty good .. but against what is easily the worst team in the Big XII. Well coached ... but just don't have the talent to compete in the conference (talking about NU of course).

    You passed. :thumbsup:

    A lot of (ignorant) "fans" would have chosen CB ... not remembering that he only played at CU for two years.

    RR is the all-time scoring leader at CU. Too bad we didn't have a better supporting cast while he was here ... and a better game-day coach. Ricardo recruited and developed great kids off the court ... but fell short on coaching them up on game-day.

    Remind you of anyone? :huh:

    chauncey and donnie didn't have a better game day coach either. but, i get your point. RR did play for BZ for one year and we were dangerous when BZ turned RR and Marcus Hall loose in the Big XII tournament. Baylor had as good a guards in the conference and we beat them (NCAA team) and almost beat OU with Griffin.

    apparently men (men sculpting their eyebrows is an "in" thing in Lincoln, just like the awesome new boybands like to do).

    Absolutely! :thumbsup:

    And don't forget that we beat OU and the Griffin bro's in the regular season that year in Boulder.

    Alec Burks has got to be the steal of last year's recruiting season.


    Seriously ... how the hell did we get him?!?

    Good win however I'd have preferred to beat 'em by 25. I thought we lost our intensity the last 5 or 6 minutes.
