Lat Mayen, who averages 7.8 pts on 38.2% FG shooting for Nebraska, is having himself a game tonight against Rutgers. Already has 20 pts on perfect shooting (7-7 FG, 4-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) in the first half.

I have watched maybe 4 or 5 Rutgers games this year, including ours. What happened to them? I was convinced they’d be ranked the rest of the year. Would’ve put them above Indiana, Maryland, Purdue, and maybe Wisconsin (who knows what to think of them), and now they are on pace to lose by 30+ against Nebraska on the same day they lost their best player. Oof

Wow. Teddy Allen leaving Nebraska seems to have had the same effect as Kobe King leaving Wisconsin.

And Rutgers was an 8 point favorite. Go figure
That darn ESPN predictor site had them as 72% to win.

Although he’s struggling tonight against UNC, I know Griffin is having a good season for Syracuse. Leads the team in points and blocks, also averages 6.6 rebs and 1.5 steals.

But, do you think he feels he made the right choice? Even if they win every game leading up to the ACC tournament champ they wouldn’t make the big dance.

He would have been the go to 3rd option for us and on some nights when he was hot maybe even the 2nd - on a top 5 team with TONS of national spot light. He would have been our main man next year. Crazy to think of all the talent we would have if we didn’t have some of the transfers.

I hope he really contemplates that custom jersey I still have hanging in my closet. Sheesh. That took -months- to get here!

Rutgers 3-23 from 3. When did they become so putrid at shooting from distance? Harper, Baker, Young...especially Young...are not horrible outside shooters. But they've really (aside from Indiana) stunk it up the home stretch of the season.

Watching the OK/OKState game - this high camera angle takes some getting used to. It's early, but I think OK will have the upper hand.

During the OK/OK State game, the announcer just said that 8 Baylor players contracted the virus. My God, I didn't know it was that severe. That's gotta be a drain on their entire team.

It's great that he's playing point.
