Remember that Nebrasketball craze? The one that took the Big Ten by storm last season? It has, by all accounts, disappeared. The latest example came on Wednesday, when the Huskers lost 74-73 in Lincoln on a late jumper to Incarnate Word. Yes, Incarnate Word.

With less than seven seconds to play, Nebraska’s Terran Petteway turned the ball over on an errant inbound pass. That gave the Cardinals one more chance trailing 73-72. Incarnate Word guard Kyle Hittle (18 points) drove baseline, pulled up and sank a prayer with 2.7 seconds remaining.
