The NCAA resume is looking strong
As far as Nebraska basketball is concerned, the 2018-19 season really could not have started much better. Certainly, the Huskers and their fans would have loved to get a win over Texas Tech, however, outside of that, everything has gone according to plan.
Nebraska basketball got its first big win in the Gavitt Games over Seton Hall, a team that Kenpom ranks 54th. That win came at home and while it was a solid win, beating a team like Clemson on the road is even better.
Beating good teams is important, but where you beat them matters almost as much and winning a game at Littlejohn is going to count for something, especially if the Tigers can finish in the top three or four teams in the ACC as they did a season ago.
Even ESPN bracket expert Joe Lunardi was singing the Huskers praises Monday night. As of now, in non-conference play, Nebraska basketball has done enough. If the Huskers can go at least 11-9 in the Big Ten, which looks really strong, it should easily make the NCAA tournament.
