2010-2011 Record: 19-13
Big 12 Conference Record (Standing) 7-9 (8th)
Our Preseason Predictions:
Joe: 10th in the Big 12
Evan: 11th in the Big 12
Matt: 10th in the Big 12
Season MVP: Lance Jeter (Senior)
The obvious selection has to be Lance Jeter for this team, Jorge Brian Diaz got some consideration but frankly not a lot. Jeter led the team in scoring, minutes played per game and assists as well as being the team leader on the court from his point guard position. His final numbers of 11.7 points per game and 4.5 assists per game are not flashy but part of that comes from playing in the slow it down system of Doc Sadler. He may not always have been the smoothest player to watch but Jeter was a strong player especially when driving to the bucket.
The Cornhuskers for the most part loaded up on creampuffs early in the season which allowed them to get some wins under their belts and get some confidence entering league play. Through eleven games in Big 12 play the Cornhuskers were sitting at 5-6 and it seemed like another lost basketball season in Lincoln, then came a win over #2 Texas. The win over the Longhorns made many Husker fans think the NCAA Tournament was a possibility, unfortunately that was looking too high. The team faltered down the stretch losing three out of their last four games in conference play before losing a heartbreaker in the Big 12 tournaments first round to Oklahoma State. They finished up the year in the NIT where the Cornhuskers put in a embarrassing last effort as a member of the Big 12 with a 76-49 loss at the hands of Wichita State.
The Cornhuskers move to the Big 10 next year where the odds are they will finish towards the bottom of the standings in that conference there as well.
