The 2014 Big Ten Tournament live stream and TV schedule Round 2 action continues today as the top four seeds will all be on the hardwood. One team that has surprised this season in the Big Ten is the Nebraska Cornhuskers. This afternoon Nebraska will get a shot at showing the Big Ten nation that they aren't a fluke when they face the Ohio State Buckeyes.
According to a Sportsline report on March 14, Nebraska and OSU will tip off at 2:30 p.m. EST today and the Huskers will be out for a bit of revenge. Nebraska was crushed by Ohio State back on Jan. 4, 84-53 and it looked like the Cornhuskers were in for a dismal season.
However since that game, and especially over the last month, Nebraska has been one of the hottest teams in the Big Ten.
Winners of eight of there last nine, the Cornhuskers are a very different team than they were on Jan. 4 and should put up a much better effort today in Indianapolis.
The big turnaround has the Huskers and coach Tim Miles thinking they may just get an NCAA invite if they can continue to advance in the Big Ten Tournament.
''I really thought if this team could get to .500 in the league, it would be a special accomplishment,'' said Miles, who was named the Big Ten coach of the year. ''For us to go 11-7 in this league, which is (ranked) one or two in the country, is really an amazing performance by our guys.''
If Nebraska keeps up their hot play, they will give Ohio State all they can handle today. The Buckeyes were very lucky to knock off Purdue yesterday in Round 1, and the Boilermakers finished in last place. OSU and star Aaron Craft will have to come out strong today vs. a much improved Nebraska team.
Las Vegas odds makers have Ohio State -7 with the over/under number set at 124.
This game could be decided by who has the ball last. Seven points seems like a lot here, but the defending Big Ten Champion Buckeyes should slide by in the end. However the points look like the play.
Pick: Nebraska +7
