LINCOLN — If there is such a thing as gaining momentum from a 0-4 start in Big Ten men's basketball, Nebraska appears to have done it.
After getting drilled by then-No. 8 Ohio State in the conference opener, the Huskers led Wisconsin by one point inside six minutes before losing; played then-No. 2 Michigan to single digits on the road until the final three minutes; and were down one point inside two minutes at then-No. 22 Michigan State.
