The Nebraska Cornhuskers are 1-0 this year after they defeated Lindenwood by a score of 84-52 in their last game. Nebraska scored 51 points in the first half, but took their foot off of the gas pedal in the second half for the easy win. The Cornhuskers shot 48.2% from the field, 36.7% on three pointers, and 65.5% on free throws in the game. Nebraska out rebounded Lindenwood by a total of 44-40, recorded 19 assists, and had nine turnovers in the game. Sam Hoiberg led the Cornhuskers with 15 points and five rebounds, while Rienk Mast added 13 points and six rebounds in the win. The Cornhuskers allowed 52 points on 32.4% shooting from the field.
Florida A&M was dominated from start to finish in their first game of the season, but they will face a slightly easier opponent in this matchup. The Cornhuskers won their first game of the season easily and they looked good doing so, but Lindenwood is not the best competition. Nebraska comes into this game as a huge favorite to win, but I think it’s too many points. This Nebraska team still has many flaws and I expect a slightly better performance from Florida A&M in this game. Take the Rattlers here.
