Nebraska basketball has had their struggles, especially in conference play.

To say that this Nebraska basketball season has been frustrating would be an understatement. The team lost against Ohio State on Saturday, losing their third conference game in a row. Saturday, several themes reared their ugly head again and it is becoming easier to see the types of mistakes Nebraska is making, ones that are preventing them from winning ball games. Whether it is lack of hustle or inability to make shots and rebound, it seems like there is always something that is getting in the way of Nebraska basketball winning games.

Some of the blame can go on head coach Tim Miles. Some of the blame can go on the players. There is really no one thing or one person that is to blame for Nebraska basketball struggling. It is a collective effort. As a fan, it is very frustrating to watch. This team has too much talent and too much athleticism to falter like this. Now, instead of being in a great position for the rest of conference play, they have put themselves in a difficult spot with a challenging conference schedule remaining.

Without further ado, we take a look at the three biggest problems for Nebraska basketball to this point in the season.
