Nebraska should’ve won... We gave them every opportunity to win

If we could scrub the final 90 seconds of this game from the history books.....

Big win! Can't ignore the improvement at this point. Will be a fun "measuring stick" game against MSU at home.

In the last two minutes of the game, missed 8 of 10 free throws. Still, very strong performance in the second half up until that point. Great to see them pull out a win.

they need to go straight to Uben and run the line. that free throw performance was disgusting. we could've easily won by 17 points.

Always take the win, gotta play w more confidence down the stretch and quit standing on rebounds
 
#16
For sure improving. But still do a lot of dumb things fundimantally on defense.

GO Illini!!

Won’t try to pretend I’ve been supportive of #2 throughout, but I love the Kipper we saw today.

Great energy. Good job by coach and team to stop big Nebraska runs (early first half was bad, but we weren’t really playing terribly).

Shoulda been a 15-20 point easy win but we are terrible at free throws.

Overall- let’s call it a good Saturday.

Nebraska wasn't exactly burning up the nets from the foul line. So, that beef goes for both teams.

Hard not to be happy for Kipper today.

Not pretty, but you get to work on things after a win. Good day.

Go Illini

We did enough to win and KN had a great game...only guy who could make FTs in last 2 min for us.

Need to have team FT drills at next practice...every missed FT results in 5 suicide sprints. We are in the running for 10th place in B10 too, fwiw.

Don't let the end of the game ruin this W. Had anyone told us we would win this by 7 and never lead by less than 7 in the second half we would have been ecstatic. Great W to build on.
Good win but hard to watch at the end. Some of the free throws looked rushed
