Nebraska beats No. 3 Texas 70-67

The kids celebrate a huge NU victory over Texas
The Huskers beat No.3 ranked Texas 70-67 on Saturday in Lincoln.  It was huge win for Nebraska and at least helps them in their cause for selection to the NCAA Tournament.  If they can win their final four games they would get into the tourney, win three they might get in any thing less and its probably not going to happen.  Up next hot handed Kansas State on Tuesday night.

After knocking off Oklahoma State can NU get by Oklahoma?

Nebraska beat Oklahoma State 65-54, finally winning a conference game they should have, at least this year.  Great defense and good shooting got them the win.  Tonight in Norman, the Huskers must bring their A game.  With a win Nebraska has a chance to salvage a little dignity and prove Doc's team is improving.  But how many "one more years," will Doc get?

Kansas handled Nebraska in an easy win 86-66 on Saturday in Lincoln.  The loss may have answered the questions on NU's chance for post season play.

Nebraska does beat Texas A&M but loses ugly to K-State

Nebraska put on a surprising show in Lincoln by beating Texas A&M 57-48 last Saturday.  Nebraska showed some gusto late in the game and held on tight for the victory over a ranked opponent.

Then last night the Huskers flopped in Manhattan losing to K-State 69-53 in an ugly embarrassing loss that included nearly 30 turnovers and the team showed no gusto.

What gives?  Which Nebraska team shows up on Saturday against Kansas in Lincoln?  The brave or the gnomes?
