LINCOLN — The Nebraska men's basketball team spent a fair amount of time Tuesday talking about something it prefers not to discuss in detail — a potential NCAA tournament bid.
The Huskers (16-10, 8-6), who play Wednesday night at Illinois (15-12, 4-10), have entered the mix by winning five straight games, seven of the past eight and eight of the past 10.
