Nebraska-basketball-20 wins-first time-10 years

Tuesday night was a huge night for Nebraska basketball.

In their 70-66 win over Maryland on Tuesday night, the Cornhuskers got to 20 wins for the first time in 10 years and just the second time since 1999. It’s also Tim Miles’ first 20-win season with the squad.

It’s also the longest conference (Big Ten or Big 12) winning streak for the Huskers in 20 years.

Also, with eight points, Glynn Watson joined the 1,000-point club as the 29th member.

And, of note, there is this nugget which says that no Big Ten squad with 20 wins and and fewer than seven conference losses has missed the NCAA tournament.

The Huskers are now 20-8 and 11-4 in conference.

Here are the final stats, as the Huskers were led by James Palmer Jr., who had 26 points in the effort. Isaiah Roby was the only other Husker in double digits with 11.
