In men’s college basketball last night, Nebraska won at Minnesota, 91-85.

The team’s 6 point win wasn’t guaranteed – it took strategy. Miles says he had to burn an early timeout to get his team going after it fell behind 7-0 .

The team refocused and was able to put up a strong offense. Sophomore forward Isaiah Roby put on a great performance, with a career-high 21 points and eight rebounds.

After the Huskers heated up, they kept the pressure on Minnesota, but off themselves. Coach Tim Miles says he’s proud of the composure his team displayed.

The Huskers improved to 18-8, and will take on Rutgers this Saturday.
