Postgame Press Conference

Featuring: John Groce

Quotes:

Groce: I thought Nebraska was terrific defensively. We can't shoot 27% on the road in this league and expect to win.

Groce: Our guys fought, played really hard. We guarded plenty good to win a road game in the B1G, just didn't get it done on offensive end.

Groce: Obviously we need Starks and Cosby to make shots at a higher rate.
