Thanks for getting it started here.
David Rivers and Benny Parker both went through warmups tonight and are in uniform.
Game is live on the BTN. Follow along.

Whoops, didn't mean to edit your post. My bad.
At any rate, follow along. We're a couple minutes away here.
No worries. Hoping we can start off early here.
Quick pace so far tonight.
Keep note. Easy Ed Hightower is officiating tonight. Gonna be a lot of whistles. I packed a sleeping bag.
Talley banks a runner in to make it 11-6 Huskers and force a Jacksonville St. timeout.
15:25 left. Almeida's got four points, three rebounds early.
Only chance this game gets dicey is foul trouble with our starters I think. Not familiar with JSU but they seem to be more of a ball movement jump shooting team. I think we will struggle vs teams with guards that are slashers.
That's a 12-2 run by the Gamecocks. Huskers trail 18-13 with 11:19 left in the first half.
Doesn't seem like we have our heads in this one sofar.
Almeida has to hit that shot... it should be a gimme for him.
4 minute plus scoring drought now for Nebraska.
Huskers trail 20-13 with 8:56 left in the first half.
Almeida went to the bench, getting his right leg looked at.
heck of a pass by Parker there
22-17 Jacksonville State with 5:56 left.
Couple nice plays by Ubel and Shields to help stop the bleeding.
Really like what Shields does. Kid understands angles.
Almeida rejoins the Huskers on the bench.
Gallegos has only taken one shot tonight, but is playing tough defense.
8-2 run by the Huskers cuts it to 22-21 Jacksonville State with 3:29 left.
Ubel really playing well tonight I think. If we want to chart any upsets in B1G play I think it will take he and Gallegos on the same page.
Ed Hightower. I thought we were done with this guy when we left the B12. He is easily my most disliked ref.
Now a 13-2 run by Nebraska. Huskers lead 27-22, holding for last shot.
Huskers close on a 15-2 run to take a 29-22 lead into halftime.
Ubel's got 9 points and four rebounds.
Gamecocks shooting just 31 percent from the field right now.
Yeah, that was a bit of a head-scratcher as well.
The first foul he called on Ubel was ridiculous. I can live with the foul but he came in and overruled the ref in position to say the guy was in the act of shooting. HE DIDNT HAVE POSSESSION!!!! It's kind of big deal to actually have control of the ball in order to shoot it. He also likes to make a show of himself like the foul call on Talley. There's no need to jump around waving off a shot that didn't happen and then stare down Talley. Just a weirdo.
I've been heckling Hightower for a good 15 years. He is the bane of my basketball existence. Actually he's the cherry on top of my torturous Nebrasketball fandom.
Almeida's athleticism is memorizing.
8-2 run for the Huskers to start the second half. Lead 37-26 with 15:52 left in the game.
