The 2021-2022 college basketball season started this week. On November 11th, teams started playing their first games. Some of the top teams in the country including Kansas, Michigan State, Kentucky, and Duke played. Kansas was able to beat Michigan State easily, and Duke barely beat Kentucky. Duke’s leading scorer was Trevor Keels with 25 points, also he was able to hit a three to seal the win.

Also, the Nebraska men’s basketball season started with a  loss to Western Illinois. Although we lost, some good things came out of it. Bryce MgGowens, a freshman, scored 25 points, which is very impressive for his first game. His older brother, Trey MgGowens only had 9 points, but had 2 incredible dunks. Also, another new player on the team, Alonzo Verge Jr. had  a double double with 26 points, 5 assists, and 13 rebounds. But it’s still very disappointing that they weren’t able to win the season opener.
