    -----------------------------------------------------------------------


    The Nebraska women’s basketball team returns to Pinnacle Bank Arena on Tuesday to take on No. 4 Maryland in a key Big Ten battle.

    • The Huskers enter Tuesday’s game looking to rebound from a hard-fought 77-71 loss at No. 19 Iowa last Thursday in Iowa City. Freshman Leigha Brown led the Huskers in scoring for the second straight game by putting up a career-high 20 points off the bench for the Big Red.
    • In conference games, Brown, the Big Ten Freshman of the Week, has the highest scoring average of any Big Ten freshman @16.7 ppg (10.4 ppg for the season).
    • However, Brown is not the top freshman scorer for the Huskers on the season. That honor belongs to Sam Haiby. The 5-9 guard from Moorhead, Minn., is averaging a team-best 10.7 points per game off the bench. She is averaging 9.7 points per game in Big Ten play to rank sixth among Big Ten freshmen in league play.
    • Tuesday’s game will feature five of the Big Ten’s top-11 scoring freshmen, including Maryland’s Taylor Mikesell (1st, 14.7 ppg) and Shakira Austin (8th, 9.0 ppg), along with Nebraska’s Sam Haiby (6th, 10.7 ppg), Leigha Brown (7th, 10.4 ppg) and Ashtyn Veerbeek (11th, 8.0 ppg).
    • The game will also have two of the Big Ten’s most accurate three-point shooters in NU’s Taylor Kissinger (1st, .477, 31-65) and Maryland’s Taylor Mikesell (3rd, .413, 43-104). Mikesell leads the Big Ten in threes per game (3.0), while Kissinger ranks fourth (2.2 pg).
    • Maryland’s Austin (1st, 11.1 rpg) and Nebraska’s Veerbeek (4th, 6.5 rpg) are among the Big Ten’s top freshman rebounders and both currently lead their teams on the glass.
    • Nebraska has eight players averaging 7.8 or more points per game and nine players averaging double-figure minutes. Returning Nebraska starters Maddie Simon, Nicea Eliely and Hannah Whitish are all averaging 8.6 points per game.

    Scouting the No. 9 Maryland Terrapins
    • Coach Brenda Frese is aiming for her 500th career win in her 20th season as a college head coach.
    • Maryland went 11-0 in non-conference play, but suffered a 73-65 home loss to Rutgers on New Year’s Eve. The Terps have used a seven-player rotation early in conference play.
    • Maryland’s starting five features three experienced juniors in Kaila Charles (16.8 ppg, 6.4 rpg), Stephanie Jones (13.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg) and Blair Watson (8.0 ppg, 3.6 rpg).
    • Charles is a 6-1 wing averaging 20.7 points in Big Ten play.
    • Jones, a 6-2 forward, has two double-doubles this season and has scored in double figures 11 times.
    • Watson is a 6-0 guard returning from a knee injury that ended her sophomore season for Maryland.
    • The Terps have two impact freshman starters in guard Taylor Mikesell (14.7 ppg, 3.6 rpg) and 6-5 forward Shakira Austin (9.0 ppg, 11.1 rpg).
    • Austin ranks second in the Big Ten with 41 blocks on the year. She has averaged 3.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in Big Ten play.
    • Mikesell, a 5-11 guard, has knocked down 43-of-104 threes (.413) this season. She has added 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
    • Maryland’s lone senior, Brianna Fraser, is averaging 8.0 points and 5.4 rebounds off the bench.
    • Channise Lewis, a 5-8 sophomore, is averaging 3.1 points and a team-best 5.1 assists this season.

    • As a team, Maryland is averaging 77.0 points per game while allowing just 55.4 points per contest. The Terps own a plus-14.5 team rebound margin, but a minus-0.4 turnover margin. Maryland is shooting 46.4 percent from the field, including an impressive 35.6 percent from three-point range and 71.8 percent at the free throw line.
    • Prior to their 73-65 loss to Rutgers the Terps owned a plus-17 rebound margin (48.8-31.8) but were out-rebounded by the Scarlet Knights, 38-28, including 19 offensive boards by Rutgers.

    Too much static and not near a computer. Send the turtles home shellless.

    Halftime Stats: Husker Ladies shooting has cooled down :Redface:, not able to finish at the rim and not getting calls when fouled. Several empty possessions. They'll have to pick up the shooting if they are going to come out on Top! :Cheer2:

    Stats at the end of 3rd Qtr. Huskers missing too many lay-ups, and not getting fouled by MD.

    Final Stats:
    Might have been a game if we'd made those easy lay-ups and good looks we missed. The difference is Maryland Made 'Em; we didn't. :Redface:

    Good battle. Shows we have potential, just not as many top end stars and depth as Maryland right now.

    Statistically we hanged with Maryland quite evenly almost across the board; Number of shots taken, Rebounds, Steals, Blocks, Assists, & Turnovers, even out rebounding Maryland 38-37. :eek: Good Effort, Ladies (Grit; No Quit! :thumbsup:) But we left far too many points on the floor from missed lay-ups and open-looks throughout the game. Shooting percentages tell the story; FGs (51.6% vs 37.7%) and 3-pointers (58.8% vs 33.3%). Maryland made their lay-ups and open looks (some not so easy); we didn't. It could have been a different game had we made some of those early misses and maybe taken the lead a time or two.

    Tough loss last night ladies, :( but you girls fought hard all game long. :Mfclap:

    Maryland is a very good team and they seem to have our number.

    Maryland erupted on a 12-2 surge over the next 3:37, and the Huskers never fully recovered. NU cut the margin back to seven at 63-56 with 7:30 left, (and I thought,'here they come', and then this happened) a 15-2 Terp outburst sealed Nebraska's fate. :Bananalazy:
