Nebraska missed a chance for a really big win against Maryland, and for a few weeks the Huskers slipped out of the ESPN tournament projections. The Bulldogs feature four players who average double figures, including Quinndary Weatherspoon, who averaged 14.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game en route to second-team All-SEC honors.

The three-point line will be moved back nearly two feet, the lane will be wider and the game will be divided into four, 10-minute quarters.
