Quick: name three Nebraska basketball players who went on to play in the NBA. Hell, name one. … You can’t. Maybe you pulled Tyronn Lue out of your ass. His most memorable moment was this, which tells you all about Nebraska’s basketball history.
It was arguably one of the biggest regular-season victories in the history of the school, and Nebraska’s second-year head coach Tim Miles enjoyed every second of it. Check Miles out (above and below) taking a happy selfie with a fan after the game.
How about the security guard going full Kevlar? Relax, chief, it’s not Bo Pelini; Nebraskans don’t get homicidal over basketball.
Miles had reason to be happy. The victory snapped a five-game losing streak for the ‘Huskers, and the fans were pumped for something other than football for a change.
“I swear I’ve never stood in this building and thought we were going to lose a game so far,” Miles said.
Gotta love his energy. Let’s see if it’s still there when
