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

    Nebraska is coming off a strong 77-67 road win at Illinois Thursday, while Minnesota completed a season series sweep with a a 78-50 win at Wisconsin. Minnesota lost to Illinois 66-62 in Minneapolis. The Gophers also lost to Michigan 76-60 in Ann Arbor three days after the Huskers ran to a 70-56 win over the Wolverines in Lincoln.

    • Minnesota will be Nebraska’s fourth ranked opponent in the past five games. The Golden Gophers come to Lincoln at No. 23 in the AP Poll and No. 25 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, after climbing as high as No. 12 in the rankings after opening 12-0.

    • Last week, the Huskers suffered home losses to current No. 9 Maryland and No. 20 Rutgers at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Big Red also suffered a narrow 77-71 road loss at current No. 22 Iowa, which rolled to an 81-63 win at Minnesota on Monday night.

    • Minnesota will be Nebraska’s seventh opponent ranked in the top 25 this season (Drake, Miami, Louisville, Iowa, Maryland, Rutgers). The Big Ten has six teams ranked in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 (No. 9 Maryland, No. 17 Michigan State, No. 20 Rutgers, No. 22 Iowa, No. 23 Minnesota and No. 25 Indiana).


    Scouting The Minnesota Golden Gophers

    • Head coach Lindsay Whalen brings her first Minnesota team to Lincoln trying to build momentum after snapping a four-game losing streak with a 78-50 win at Wisconsin on Thursday.

    • Minnesota is led by first-team All-Big Ten senior point guard Kenisha Bell, who is averaging 19.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.2 steals. Bell is shooting just 25 percent (7-28) from three-point range and 68.9 percent at the free throw line.

    • Junior guard Jasmine Brunson has hit 11-of-30 threes (.367) on the year. Brunson is averaging 8.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists on the season.

    • Sophomore guard/forward Destiny Pitts leads Minnesota with 34 threes on the year but has knocked down just 30.9 percent (34-110) of her long-range attempts. Pitts ranks second among the Gophers with 12.6 points per game, while adding 3.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

    • Minnesota’s inside starters are Annalese Lamke and Taiye Bello. Lamke, a 6-3 senior center, is averaging 11.4 points and 6.0 rebounds while shooting 56.2 percent from the field. Bello, a 6-2 junior forward, averages double figures with 10.8 points and a team-best 12.1 rebounds. Bello has hit 56.1 percent of her shots and leads the Gophers with 22 blocks on the year.

    • As a team, Minnesota is shooting 30.3 percent (73-241) from beyond the three-point arc, including just 25.9 percent (21-81) through six Big Ten games.

    I like our chances here. :Cheer2: This is may be a silly question, but how is Minnesota ranked #23 (AP) & #25 (Coaches) with a 2-4 Conference Record. Are they ready for a fall? (in Lincoln :D)

    I know exactly what you mean! :confused: You shouldda read it Before I edited it from all the superfluous information on the Huskers.com Game Page. Talk about being confused. :D

    I like our chances for the win. It would be a good time for us to have a 'Breakout' Game when everything comes together (on National TV). :nod:

    Garrido perez averages 1.5 ppg and she pops a 3 @ the half time buzzer for a 1 pt. lead for UM. 27-26

    [​IMG]

    ...and there were 11 lead changes in the 1st half. 7 of them were when the score was still only 7-8 NU.

    Annoyed by the announcing. I call it Musberger syndrome...they have their Minny stories and could care less what is actually happening in the game. Not helping my mood that we seem to throw the ball away whenever we seem to start getting some momentum.
