LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska won 10 more games than it did last season and set a school record for conference victories. Most years that would be reason for celebration in a program with such a dismal basketball history.
There was no sense of satisfaction from how things turned out.
The Cornhuskers believed they met the eye test, if not the metrics, and deserved to be in the NCAA Tournament after tying with Michigan for fourth in the Big Ten.
