Nebraska coach Tim Miles says his team won despite getting outhustled. The Huskers broke away from a two point halftime lead to beat Northwood of Michigan 80-62 in exhibition play on Tuesday night. The Timberwolves dominated the glass and outrebounded the Huskers 50-40.
Nebraska played without several regulars who are nursing injuries. That includes junior guard Glynn Watson junior, who is bothered by a sore elbow.
Miles says the Huskers will be at full strength for Saturday’s regular season opener against Eastern Illinois.
