Men’s basketball: Miles planning lineup change for Miami
Lee Barfknecht Omaha World-Herald

When Nebraska hosts Miami in men’s basketball on Wednesday night, look for some different lineup combinations.

NU coach Tim Miles said Monday that he is reviewing the units he puts on the floor after a sloppy and sluggish performance in last Saturday’s 63-58 win over Northern Illinois.

“I’ve got to get the lineup right,” he said. “I don’t know exactly how I’m going to do it yet. But it will be a different starting lineup, just to get the blend right.”

Miami (5-3) is coming off a 2-1 showing for fifth place in the Wooden Legacy tournament. The Hurricanes’ loss in that tourney was 71-63 to George Washington, which defeated Creighton 60-53.

This game is part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
