Miles’ Huskers Are Out to End Creighton Dominance

Nebraska-Huskers-BasketballLINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Second-year Nebraska coach Tim Miles hopes to change the direction of his program’s series against Creighton. The Bluejays enter Sunday’s meeting at CenturyLink Center in Omaha having won 11 of the last 15 meetings.

Miles said Friday that it’s an important game to him personally and for his program.

Nebraska (6-2) leads the series 25-21, with its last win in 2010 in Lincoln. But the Bluejays (6-2) have controlled the series since the 1990s.

Creighton coach Greg McDermott said it’s an important game for both teams and that it’s good for basketball in the state.

Though the Huskers have only three Nebraskans on their roster and Creighton one, the Bluejays’ Ethan Wragge says the game generates a lot of buzz among the players.
