Glynn Watson golden against Gophers to help Huskers upset No. 14 Minnesota

Glynn Watson golden against Gophers to help Huskers upset No. 14 Minnesota”

It's hardly inside information that the best way to attack Nebraska is to go inside.

An 8-0 run gave the Cornhuskers (7-3, 1-1) a 22-14 lead with nine minutes left in the first half, and Nebraska maintained the lead the rest of the game.

Coach Tim Miles dismissed the inside woes in Sunday's 29-point loss to Michigan State, noting the quality of the opponent.

"I knew the crowd wouldn't be as big", Pitino said, comparing it to the game against Miami.

Rutgers finished dead last in the 14-team conference last season.

Nebraska guard Glynn Watson Jr. led Nebraska shooting 9-17 field goals, with 29 points and nine rebounds in his team's upset victory.

"We played good defense", Watson said, "and that's what we need to start doing".

Using an aggressive, double-teaming defense, the Huskers held Big Ten scoring leader Jordan Murphy to 10 points, 11 below his season average, and held high-scoring Minnesota 21 points below its season average.

Washington had just five points on 2-for-7 shooting in 17 minutes.

Mason's 26-point, seven-assist performance helped overcome some otherwise bleak games from some of his most important teammates.

"It really all comes down to stops", Coffey said. Through anxious about the changes on a short turnaround, Miles agreed. "You can not let them get going inside or they'll brutalize you". "I thought our guys did a really, really good job".

Nate Mason, the team's senior co-captain, did his best to add intrigue to both team's first Big Ten game.

But they held a 42-38 edge on the boards.

Hunter laid out the plan to the players, and after further breaking down the schemes during the Minnesota film studies, Miles said the Huskers started to really buy into the plan leading into Tuesday night's showdown. "Like you gang-tackle in football, we gang-rebounded".

Nebraska then matched its biggest lead of the night on a jumper by senior guard Evan Taylor that made it 56-40 with just under 11 minutes remaining.

"No", Watson said, smiling. "All I did was clean up".

Foul trouble also slowed Minnesota. They combined for eight points, nine rebounds and four blocks.

"Ball-screen (defense) was killing us", Coffey said. "We needed to build confidence and momentum. We could get in there, but we couldn't do anything with it". "Credit to them. It's a tough environment to play in, so we've got to learn from it".

Halftime - Nebraska 39-31. But he chose to give Hunter the green light to introduce them during practice on Monday evening.

Duby Okeke's gave Nebraska a 48-32 lead early in the second half, and the Gophers didn't make a serious run until the final minutes.

Nebraska's lead stayed in double digits until the final 1:03. The Gophers never got the lead back after.

"They are a good team, and they will continue to get better once they get continuity with their transfers", Pitino said. "We just didn't do a good job there, so we've got to get back to it".

"Obviously, we didn't have it going", Pitino told reporters. If you don't have it going offensively, you've got to get some stops and get out on the break.
