Re: Nebraska Basketball 2017-18

Wow that is surprising...maybe NU can challenge Creighton in their annual game this year. The last time it was really competitive was in 2010 when NU won.

Re: Creighton Basketball 2017-2018

Creighton lost their closed scrimmage to Minnesota 79-91. Marcus Foster scored 19 and Martin Krampelj had 16.

Minnesota is preseason #15 in the Coaches poll, so this wasn't the worst of outcomes for the game.
