After 12-19 year, Huskers' Miles wants to reward AD's faith

For three straight years, Nebraska has played abysmal basketball at the end of the season, come in 11th or worse in the Big Ten and failed to make a postseason tournament. A lot of places, that would get the coach fired. Not at Nebraska, a program that hasn't won or shared a regular-season conference championship since 1950.
