BRESLIN CENTER — It’s amazing that Nebraska is shooting only 42 percent in the first half. It seems like everything the Huskers put up, goes in.
This is an incredibly limited Nebraska club, but they’re still Division I basketball players, some of Big Ten caliber. In other words, if left open and in rhythm, they’ll hit shots. And they are. That’s why it’s 32-32, even though MSU is shooting 54 percent.
MSU simply isn’t locked in defensively and isn’t bothering Nebraska.
The only bit of good news for MSU is the play of Branden Dawson, who, since the second half against Purdue, is playing at a different pace. That’s continuing tonight. He has 10 points and four rebounds. He have more points, but he can’t hit a free throw (0-4).
