    The Huskers return to Pinnacle Bank Arena Thursday evening to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions.

    The Huskers (11-4, 1-3 Big Ten) look to bounce back after a 93-84 loss at No. 25 Iowa on Sunday. Senior Isaac Copeland had a season-high 24 points to lead four Huskers in double figures, but the Hawkeyes got a strong performance from Jordan Bohannon, who scored 22 of his 25 points in the second half. Iowa also went 10-of-22 from 3-point range and 29-of-32 from the foul line, while Nebraska shot just 4-of-23 from long range against the Hawkeyes.

    Nebraska will look to sharpen its focus on the defensive end, as its last two opponents shot a combined 46 percent from the floor and averaged 83.5 points per game after the Huskers entered January allowing just 37 percent shooting and 57.8 ppg.

    Nebraska goes for a school-record 20th straight home win on Thursday night. It is the fourth-longest streak in the nation entering this week's action and the longest by a power conference program. A win against the Nittany Lions would match the streak set by the 1965-66 and 1966-67 squads.

    SCOUTING PENN STATE
    Under eighth-year coach Patrick Chambers, Penn State comes to Lincoln looking to snap a two-game losing streak. The Nittany Lions, who went 26-13 and won the NIT in 2018, returned three starters from year ago, but have been forced to use several lineups during the first half of the season. Penn State handed No. 9 Virginia Tech its only loss of the year and has battled nationally ranked Michigan and Indiana. In Sunday's loss to Wisconsin, the Nittany Lions shot just 38 percent and committed 16 turnovers which led to 19 Wisconsin points.

    Senior forward Lamar Stevens has been the one constant for Penn State, as he leads the Nittany Lions in both scoring (18.9 ppg) and rebounding (8.1 rpg). Stevens has been in double figures in all 15 games, including seven 20-point efforts, and has six double-doubles. He had 22 points in Sunday's game against Wisconsin. Junior Mike Watkins returns on the interior and is averaging 7.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game while shooting 57 percent from the field. Senior Josh Reaves is one of the premier defensive players in the Big Ten, as he leads the conference in steals at 2.5 per game while also leading Penn State in assists (3.3 apg). Freshmen Rasir Bolton (13.1 ppg) and Myles Dread (8.1 ppg) provide additional offensive output.

    unfortunately NU has put themselves in a MUST WIN situation with Penn St. Win this game and the wheels can get back on the track. Lose this game, and its gonna be really really tough mentally to overcome and get the season back on track, considering all the pre-season hype. hopefully they can Win and its a moot point.

    This is big because it means NU has a pretty large margin of error. They will have played a damn good schedule.

    NU should come out with its hair on fire tomorrow night.

    Some 'Skinny' from another site:



    "The Skinny: Sorry folks life got real busy so this going to be real brief. Nebraska has been struggling on defense and Miles spent most of his presser talking about it. At home against the conference's worst offense should make the Huskers look a whole lot better. Penn St is a play you tough sort of crew that got blown out of the water by Wisconsin at home with head coach Pat Chamber suspended for a game. Does this team rally behind him or do they just fall apart? Probably the former as leaving town in this sort of situation is probably a bonus.

    James Palmer will probably struggle under the defense of Josh Reaves. Don't worry, we have other guys capable of scoring. Mike Watkins is going to score some points and grabs some rebounds. Don't worry, he's not capable of playing an entire game. If Watkins and Lamar Stevens go off it's still possible to shut down the rest of this team.

    Penn St is the slump buster this Nebraska team needs.

    Prediction: Nebraska 75 - Penn St 63"

    Darn! Looks like the Cincinnati-Tulsa game is going to OT. Tied 58-58 with less than a second remaining.

    Tulsa is choking this one away, but it will probably go to OT.
