CBB Predictions: Michigan Wolverines vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers 3/5/17

Ed Morrow Jr. and Isaiah Roby each scored 10 points for the Huskers, who finished with 16 turnovers and shot just 28.6 percent in the second half.

The Wolverines will now shift their attention toward the postseason and the Big Ten Tournament (March 8-12) at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Michigan, which earned the eighth seed, will face ninth-seeded IL on Thursday (March 9) at noon live on BTN.

Overall, 10 different players recorded points to spark the win, with Michigan's last 10 points of the night coming from its bench, including four from Xavier Simpson and two apiece from Ibi Watson and Sean Lonergan. "Our guys don't quit but there's certainly a crisis of confidence", Nebraska coach Tim Miles admitted to reporters.

Nebraska then returned home for "Legend's Weekend" and fell to IL 73-57.

"We just had a bounce-back mentality", Irvin said.

"Tai's journey has been incredible in terms of he came in greatly heralded and then started on an NCAA tournament team and then worked his way out of the rotation (as a sophomore)", Miles told HuskerOnline. "Derrick had a great game, being able to find everyone, and he shot the ball well, too". Nebraska has lost 11 of its last 14 games since starting out conference play 3-0 for the first time in 41 years. A 13-2 run made it 39-19 late in the half. "There is a defeatism. It looks to me like it's a team walking around getting ready to get hit by lightning, and that can't be us".

Ah, the magic of CGI-which is responsible for Johnny Depp giving us major Throwback Thursday vibes, back when he was younger. Kaya Scodelario and Brendan Thwaites seem to be taking over the romantic roles from Orlando and Keira Knightley in new film.

All five of Michigan's starters made 3s, with forward Moritz Wagner and Irvin each making three to lead the Wolverines.

Nebraska: The Huskers once again are staggering into the conference tournament.

MI looks to cement a place in the NCAA Tournament when it closes out the regular season on the road against Nebraska on Sunday.

Walton's school-record 16 assists doubled his previous season high and were three more than his career best. I just felt like I was letting a lot of people down.

There honestly wasn't many good things in this game for Nebraska. He came out with 3:46 left to a standing ovation from the remaining fans.

As a result, the Huskers will go to Washington, DC for the B1G tournament as the 12th seed and take on Penn State, the #13 seed. Michael Jacobson had 10 points despite nursing a wrist injury to finish in double figures for the first time in almost a month. Beilein has guided the Wolverines to seven 20-win seasons in his 10-year tenure at MI, and he is the first U-M coach to have seven seasons with 10 or more Big Ten wins.
