  1. The men's basketball team had their "secret" scrimmage against ISU today. Keeping in mind, this isn't exactly a real game as there are additional stoppages, substitutions, etc...ISU won by about 9. Here is the links to the information so far about it. One is from an ISU writer so it is about ISU, however it does give a few more details. http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/huskers-have-encouraging-scrimmage-at-iowa-state/article_64d1f47d-f764-5012-ab1d-6ad3526d55fe.html http://cyclonefanatic.com/forum/threads/updated-insider-iowa-state-beat-nebraska-by-9-today-details-here.223073/ FYI - the same ISU writer mentioned that the Nebraska women played ISU in Lincoln and Nebraska lost by over 20.
