    Huskers Expect Tough Home Clash with Wildcats
    This Nebraska/Northwestern game has all the makings of a close game. The two teams not only have identical league marks, they are separated by fewer than 10 spots in the RPI and they are both battling for a top-four spot in the conference standings.

    • Nebraska is coming off its first win over a top-25 opponent this season after rallying for a 63-57 victory over No. 23 Minnesota at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Sunday evening. The Huskers trailed by nine points with eight minutes left, before closing the game on a 12-0 run. Nebraska held the Gophers without a field goal for the game’s final six minutes to secure its third fourth-quarter comeback win in Big Ten Conference play this season.

    • Junior guard Hannah Whitish (10), sophomore guard Taylor Kissinger (9) and freshman guard Sam Haiby (6) combined for all 25 of Nebraska’s points in the fourth quarter against Minnesota, while junior guard Nicea Eliely grabbed five of her career-high six steals in the final period.

    • Leigha Brown, a 6-1 freshman from Auburn, Ind., shares the team scoring lead with 10.3 points per game including a team-best 13.0 points in Big Ten play. Fellow freshman Sam Haiby, a 5-9 guard from Moorhead, Minn., has added 10.3 points per game off the bench.

    • Nebraska’s bench is the most productive unit in the Big Ten, averaging 33.7 points per game in conference play.

    Scouting The Northwestern Wildcats
    • Sophomore guard Lindsey Pulliam leads the Wildcats with 16.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. Pulliam has struggled from long range this year, hitting just 7-of-42 threes (.167) including 2-for-13 in Big Ten play. However, she is averaging 19.4 points per game in conference action.

    • Senior forward Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah continues to provide a dominant inside presence with 11.6 and 10.8 rebounds, while leading Northwestern with 31 blocks. She also ranks second on the team with 29 steals. Akpanah is averaging 12.9 points and 11.1 boards in league play.

    • Sophomore guard Jordan Hamilton averages 9.7 points and a team-leading 3.8 assists, while knocking down 36.2 percent (21-58) of her threes.

    • Freshman guard Veronica Burton contributes 7.9 points and a team-leading 2.6 steals per game. Burton has been the Wildcats’ most consistent threat from long range with 40.4 percent (21-52) success from beyond the three-point arc.

    • Injured 6-2 junior forward Abi Scheid has missed the last three games, but has averaged 11.0 points and 5.6 rebounds while hitting 35.2 percent of her threes on the season, including 8-of-15 (.533) in the first four Big Ten contests.
