Tim Miles Makes Bold Prediction For Nebraska In 2018-19

Nebraska basketball fans rush the court after beating Wisconsin.

Nebraska basketball had a resurgence in 2017-18. Could more be on the way next year?

Tim Miles thinks so. The Huskers' head coach seems to be thinking big things are on the horizon for this team.

Miles led the Huskers to the first 20-win season for the program in a decade. Nebraska tied for fourth in the Big Ten in the regular season and was the No. 5 seed in the Big Ten Tournament.

With stars Isaac Copeland and James Palmer officially back, Miles told CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein that he's betting his team finishes in the top four of the league.

“I’m picking us in the top four of the Big Ten next season,” Miles said to Rothstein Monday on the College Hoops Today Podcast. “This is probably the best roster I’ve ever had as a head coach and I can’t wait to get started.”

Nebraska has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2014. Amazingly, they've never won a tournament game in seven appearances.

Can Miles change that in 2018-19?
