Nebraska is off to a 2-1 start after losing 17 consecutive games to conclude Fred Hoiberg's first season as head coach last year, and a stronger defense that is providing more scoring opportunities is one reason for the improvement. The Cornhuskers are coming off a successful debut in the Golden Window Classic at Lincoln, Neb., capped with a 79-57 win Saturday over North Dakota State, an NCAA Tournament-caliber team the last two seasons. Nebraska will host South Dakota (0-2) on Tuesday night.
