The Big Ten/ACC Challenge sponsored by ESPNU will occur Wednesday night as the Huskers get ready to play against the Miami Hurricanes.
The Huskers are hoping for a win after the disappointing home win of 63-58 against Northern Illinois.
Miami won the ACC championship last year and Nebraska is hoping to have a chance of dethroning this team. While the team has had some difficulties in getting started this year with two overtime losses to start the season, Tim Miles, coach of the Huskers, says this is not a reason for the Huskers to not play their best.
Time Miles stated, “They’ve struggled scoring a little bit, but they’ve fine-tuned what they are doing. They have more of an identity and are going inside a lot more.”
There are many high hopes for sophomore transfer athlete Walter Pitchford to play well in the game this week. The Huskers are coming up a little short in terms of inside players and Pitchford is meant to help out his teammates as much as possible.
When asked how he felt about the game this week, Pitchford stated “Every game, you’ve got to go out and be motivated. Even if there is a little crowd, you have to go out with high intensity. But it’s always fun to play on ESPN. Hopefully there are more of those.”
