    MENS HOOPS: NU Smokes SWAC Foe

    A team from the SWAC isn't precisely the ideal warm-up for the Nebraska men's basketball team's big tournament in Puerto Rico this week, but a 83-40 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff will have to suffice.

    NU (2-0) overcame a sluggish, turnover-prone first half to score 55 points in the final 20 minutes. Sophomore forward Christian Standhardinger came off the bench to record his first career double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds. He did most of that damage – 16 and 8 – during the second half.

    “One thing you know about Christian, is he is always going to be high energy, and he’s always going to bring a lot of energy with him,” head coach Doc Sadler said. “Christian is Christian and he’s been that way ever since he’s been here. That doesn’t surprise me.”

    Said Standhardinger: “I always try to give the team everything I've got whether I'm coming from the bench or if I'm one of the starting five. It really doesn't matter. You have to be there to help the team no matter what.”

    Junior guard Caleb Walker pitched in 13 points and 7 rebounds. Point guard Lance Jeter scored 11. The Huskers shot 63 percent – its best single-game rate since 2006 - and held the weak Golden Lions to just 25 percent from the floor. UAPB (0-2) made just three shots and scored 15 points in the first half. Nebraska wasn't much better, scoring 28; 12 first-half turnovers kept the Huskers from extending their lead.

    No such problem after halftime. NU had a quick 11-4 run fueled by five points from Jeter to stretch the advantage to 39-19. The Golden Lions scored five quick points, but Standhardinger answered with seven straight points to start a 16-0 run.

    Nebraska now boards a plane Tuesday afternoon bound for the Honda Puerto Rico Tip-Off, which begins Thursday in San Juan. It's a homecoming of sorts for Husker center Jorge Brian Diaz – and the biggest non-conference test in the Sadler era. NU draws Vanderbilt first; the Commodores are receiving votes in both major polls. Win there, and potential games with West Virginia, North Carolina or Minnesota may await.

    “That’s the beauty of that and that’s going to test our toughness,” Sadler said. “If we play well and get a win, are we going to be tough enough to come back that next day and play? If we play well and things don’t go well, are we going to be tough enough to put it behind us and get ready for that second game?”

    *Note: Backup point guard Kamyron Brown didn't suit up for the game for off-court reasons; Sadler said his status for the Puerto Rico trip is uncertain.

    MBB: Doc Signs Duo

    On the first day of the spring signing period for college basketball, guard Caleb Walker officially became a member of Nebraska's team.

    But head coach Doc Sadler had another ace hidden up his sleeve, announcing that former Oregon point guard Kamyron Brown signed with NU, as well.

    “I’m excited to add two quality people and proven winners to our program,” Sadler said. “In this recruiting class, the most important thing to me was signing guys who expect to win. Caleb and Kamyron have proven it at the high school and college levels because the teams they’ve played on are successful. And they’ve proven that team goals are more important to them than individual goals.”

    The 6-foot-2 Brown started 13 games over two years for the Ducks, leading UO in assists both seasons. Out of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, Brown was considered one of the best point guards on the West Coast.

    A true point, Brown will compete with Lance Jeter for playing time. He sat out last season to preserve two years of playing time, completing his associate's degree at Rancho Santiago (Calif.) College.

    Walker, meanwhile, was a junior college All-American for Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College after averaging 16 poinds and eight rebounds.

    Stay tuned to Husker Locker for more analysis.
