No more moral wins

The Nebraska basketball team through a 9-5 start this year has been -- dare I say -- fun to watch this season.
I know, I know. I just ruined the rest of the season for the Huskers. But really, if you’ve watched them this year in any capacity, they’ve had a different buzz about them.
They scored 100-plus points Dec. 20 against UTSA to win that one. First time they’ve scored more than 100 points since 2005.
Unfortunately for me, I think I’ve watched more of the losses than wins, just the way my schedule has worked out thus far. However, in those losses, I still came away impressed at some level.
Take the Kansas game. I’m still heated about this. Kansas’ Svi Mykhailiuk drilled a three-pointer with 23.2 seconds left to take a 73-72 lead.
The old Nebraska fan in me threw his hands up and said it was over. Not so fast, Mr. Pessimistic.
