Nebraska men’s hoops can’t weather the Red Storm

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska men’s basketball fell to 2-1 on the season after a 70-50 loss on the road against St. John’s.

It was an overall ugly first half offensively for both sides, as missed shots and free throws consumed the Big Red and the Red Storm.

Nebraska converted just 11 of 32 shots and missed 10 of its 13 3-pointers in the first half, when the teams shot a combined 19-for-66.
