07:32 AM ET 01.31 | Make no mistake: This one, after being outscored 41-23, in the second half, hurt. Minutes after his coach talked about defensive mistakes and mental breakdowns, sophomore guard Yogi Ferrell cut directly to what he thought was the more appropriate point. The question was posed to Ferrell and senior forward Will Sheehey, standing outside their locker room in the aftermath of Thursday's 60-55 loss at Nebraska: What led to that defensive let-off? Ferrell raised his hand -- he wanted to answer. "I feel like guys on our team, they don't take pride in defense," Ferrell said pointedly. "We took pride in the first half, but in the second half, we had a letdown. If we don't take pride in our defense for the whole game, we won't win games." Ferrell spoke calmly, but his frustration was palpable.

Nebraska has unmatched facilities, an athletic tradition that does not brook mediocrity for long, and an excellent coach. I expect them to contest for the B1G basketball crown in not too many seasons.
