Iowa's trip to Nebraska to get their first taste of Nebrasketball this season went very badly -- or at least the second half went very, very badly. Iowa played maybe their worst half of basketball all season then and it cost Iowa dearly. Whether or not Iowa still has a shot at getting into the NCAA Tournament, Iowa needs this game just because getting swept by Nebraska would be ridiculously, hopelessly embarrassing.
A win in this game would also give Iowa 20 wins in the regular season and a 9-9 Big Ten conference record, the best marks for Iowa in many years. Today is also Senior Day and while Iowa has just one senior (Eric May), it would certainly be nice to get him a win. Finally, a win keeps alive Iowa's hopes of getting the #6 seed in the Big Ten Tournament next week. So go Hawks. Beat Nebrasketball.
The game is on BTN at 1:15pm CT.
The usual rules apply: no links to illegal online streams, no porn, no religion, no slurs, no politics, etc.
NOTE: You may have already noticed it by now, but the recent upgrade to the comments (spoiler text! z-button scrolling on mobile!) has also led to some annoying bugs and glitches. The most annoying one (and most relevant to the gamethread experience) is that the auto-updating feature for comments is not reliable at the moment. So if you notice that comments don't seem to be updating as often as usual, just hit refresh and you'll probably see a lot of new comments. This is a frustrating situation and I've reached out to SBN Support about it; hopefully it will get fixed very quickly.
