    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rutgers leads the all-time series with Nebraska 3-1, with all four meetings coming as Big Ten foes in the past two seasons. Last season, the Huskers battled to a 65-54 win over the Scarlet Knights in Lincoln on Jan. 16, 2016, in the only previous meeting at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Rutgers bounced back two weeks later at the RAC in Piscataway, defeating the Huskers 66-56. In the 2016 Big Ten Tournament, Rutgers rallied from a late fourth-quarter deficit to win 66-63.

    Nebraska is led by 6-4 sophomore forward Jessica Shepard, who is averaging a double-double with 18.0 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.

    Nebraska freshman Nicea Eliely leads the Huskers in assists (2.8 apg), steals (1.7 spg), blocks (0.8 bpg) and field goal percentage (.490), while ranking second on the team in scoring (8.0 ppg) and three-point field goal percentage (.414), and third in rebounding (4.3 rpg). Eliely has started all 16 games this season as a true freshman.

    Freshman Hannah Whitish is averaging 10.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals in four Big Ten games as a starter for the Huskers. Whitish also leads the Huskers with 22 three-pointers on the season.

    Scouting Rutgers
    The Scarlet Knights went just 3-10 in non-conference play before losing their Big Ten opener to Michigan, 63-50. Following the loss to the Wolverines, Rutgers reeled off back-to-back wins against Penn State (61-45) and Wisconsin (68-52) before suffering a 78-41 loss at Illinois,

    Rutgers has struggled to score throughout the season, averaging just 50.2 points per game, managed just 45.8 points per game on the road. The Scarlet Knights have surrendered just 59.2 points per game on the season, but that number increases to 63.3 points per contest on the road.

    Shrita Parker, a 5-7 junior guard is the only returning starter and the only player averaging in double figures for the Scarlet Knights. She has managed 10.1 points, while adding 2.5 assists per game.

    Rutgers is hitting just 35.6 percent of its shots from the field, including a dismal 27.5 percent (69-251) from three-point range. The Scarlet Knights are also hitting just 66.7 percent (124-186) of their free throws.

    Rutgers has been outrebounded 39.1-33.8 and own a negative-0.8 team turnover margin. However, in four Big Ten games, Rutgers owns a plus-3.0 turnover margin but has been outrebounded, 38.5-28.5.

    Big game. We better win this one, or we have a real chance of rolling a donut. As in 0-18 in league play. Could possibly win at Wisconsin, but no sure thing on the road. A lot of pressure to get this one, one of the few winnable games. 4-12. Never thought I'd live to see it. Until I saw it happening before my eyes last March.

    That was one bad and disinterested Rutgers team. But, at least we can't go 0-18.
