This exciting weekend of Northwestern basketball rounds out with a Sunday showdown between the Wildcats and the Cornhuskers — the two teams at the bottom of the conference. As bad as Northwestern’s season has gone, things haven’t gone much better for UNL.
The Cornhuskers have just two wins in conference play, and are in the midst of a 13-game losing streak — one longer than the 12-game skid NU currently boasts. One of those streaks has to end this afternoon!
This game actually carries a small semblance of postseason implications as a Wildcat victory could line them up to steal the No. 13 seed in the B1G Tourney and drop the Huskers into last place in the conference.
