Photo: Nebraska's Tim Miles Takes On Former Husker Legend Ndamukong Suh In Basketball

Ndamukong Suh is one of the most talented defensive linemen in football. He was a Heisman finalist during his senior season at Nebraska and is a three-time first-team All-Pro player through four seasons in the NFL. Part of his ability has been attributed to soccer, a sport Suh grew up playing. The footwork and agility skills Suh possesses--rare for a man his size--likely come from years on the pitch. 

How good of a basketball player is he?

Suh is back in Lincoln, training at the facility he helped build. In 2010, Suh donated $2.6 million to Nebraska. The money helped upgrade the Huskers' football facilities.

Who is more beloved in Lincoln: Suh, the former football star, or Tim Miles, Nebraska's up-and-coming basketball coach?
