When last we met, Iowa was doing something it's done with depressing regularity over the last two decades: lose a game at Assembly Hall in Champaign, IL. Now we head west for a fresh experience: playing Nebrasketball in its home environment, Lincoln, NE. The last time Iowa played Nebraska in Lincoln was the same year that America celebrated its 200th birthday: the great and glorious year of 1976. The Iowa-Nebraska basketball rivalry then went into hibernation for the next three decades, only re-emerging this year when Nebraska decided to put on its B1G boy pants.

Our first meeting went poorly: Nebraska rode a red-hot shooting effort from Cameron Richardson to a 48-point second half and a mild upset win over Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. In a season with no shortage of disappointments, that certainly ranks as one of the lowest moments. Now we get a chance for revenge. Now we get a chance to move a step closer to finishing a season with an above-.500 record for the first time since 2007. Now we get a chance to keep alive our hope of playing a postseason game somewhere. Iowa's played better in the 8 games since that earlier defeat, going 4-4 and grabbing some very nice wins over Indiana and Wisconsin. Now's the time to transfer that level of play to a road game.

The game is on ESPNU at 8pm CT. (I'm not sure if it's available via ESPN3.com or not.)

The standard open threading rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no religion, no porn, no politics, no slurs, no douchebaggery, etc. Go Iowa.
