Nebraska basketball vs. Michigan keys to the game
Keys for Nebraska
Send Tai Webster off the right way.
Webster is going to finish near the top 25 in scoring in school history. He’s improved every season, and is the poster child of the Tim Miles era thus far. He’s the leader of this young team, and scored in double digits in 30 straight games. He deserves to play his final game at PBA in a close game. Or win in a stunner.
The wheels have essentially fallen completely off of this program. If Miles and the Huskers lose on Sunday, they’ll have the worst record since Miles was hired five years ago. Miles will finish with a losing record in four of his five seasons, and it’d be hard to argue the program has gone anywhere in his tenure. A win over Michigan would save some face for the program.
Keys for Michigan
Rebound, and not just on the boards
Michigan closes the regular season four days after a last-second loss at Northwestern on Dererk Pardon’s layup, a 67-65 loss that could either motivate the Wolverines or deflate them. Michigan generated momentum in the final four weeks of the regular season, winning five of six before the loss to the Wildcats, and a win at Nebraska would help Michigan regroup from one of its more notable losses this season. It could also boost Michigan as it prepares for the Big Ten Tournament, which begins Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
Continue exercising depth
In particular, continue production from Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Abdur-Rahkman has come on strong in the final weeks of the regular season; the junior guard is averaging 12.3 points in the last eight games, including 13 points at Northwestern. Abdur-Rahkman was one of three players to score in double figures at Northwestern. Depth will be key against Nebraska; in a 91-85 win against Nebraska on Jan. 14 in Ann Arbor, Michigan had three players score in double figures: Derrick Walton Jr. (20 points), Zak Irvin (21) and Moritz Wagner (23).
