Iowa men’s basketball offense goes missing at Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. – It doesn’t get much more concerning than losing at home as a 31.5-point favorite, but the Iowa men’s basketball team tested the limits Thursday night.

The Hawkeyes got off to a horrid offensive start and never recovered in a resounding 66-50 loss to Nebraska at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

It makes for a tenuous moment for Iowa (8-5, 0-2 Big Ten) before the calendar even flips to the new year, pairing a blowout loss to the preseason pick to finish last in the league with last week’s 92-83 loss. to an Eastern Illinois team that previously had just one win against a Division I opponent.

The Hawkeyes still have wins against Seton Hall, Clemson and Iowa State on their resume and a whole lot of season in front of them, but warning lights have to be illuminated after the last two performances.
