Penn St 76 (OT)
This was a pathetic loss. Penn State is not a good team. Unlike the last 4 or 5 teams Nebraska has played Penn State had no superstar player that could take over the game. The game was tied up with 20 seconds or so left in the game and Nebraska had the ball and called time out and gave the ball to Watson who ran the clock down to 3 seconds and then sent the game into overtime with a missed 15 ft jumper shot clanking off the rim.
Even the announcer said it was inexcusable for Nebraska to come out of a time out with that lame attempt. It was absolutely horrible. Mismanagement and ineptitude would only get worse for Nebraska in overtime like when Roby lost track of the clock and was caught standing dumb and surprised in the middle of the court with a shot clock violation. Then at the end of the game there was Roby looking dumbfounded again with the ball in his hands taking another wild shot at a time that was no time to be taking wild shots........ And Tim Miles was sitting on the bench not saying much instead of yelling at the top of his lungs at the incompetence. It hurt Nebraska big time not having center Tshimanga. Between the starting center threatening to leave the team and this poorly coached and managed game one can not help but think the wheels have come off the axle and this thing is going to crash and burn in an ugly end. Right now its safe to say that 2 months from now Nebraska will have fired Miles and looking hard for a new coach.
