Mechelle offers A little Husker upper
So Nebraska had just lost 80-70 in the Big 12 tournament after facing a Texas A&M team that had everything working right. It was the first defeat of the season for the Huskers, and not surprising considering how both teams had looked in their quarterfinal match-ups. Texas A&M had appeared to click well against Texas, while there were things that didn’t look as good for Nebraska against Kansas State.

Still, even though this was a loss that all but those with the rosiest-colored glasses might have seen coming, there was a sense of sadness for the Nebraska fans that the “perfect” part of their season ended. To go unbeaten is such a rare and unlikely thing, especially for a program that’s had to scratch and claw its way to this level of success.
