Nebraska Briefly
• Nebraska returns three starters and eight letterwinners from a team that went 7-22 overall and 3-13 to tie for 11th in the Big Ten in 2016-17.

• Sophomore Hannah Whitish (9.0 ppg) is Nebraska’s top returning scorer, while senior Jasmine Cincore and sophomore Nicea Eliely both started all 29 games in the Husker backcourt a year ago.

• Eliely and senior guard Janay Morton enter the season with injuries and will likely be unavailable for Saturday’s season opener. Both are hopeful to return to full strength early in the non-conference season.

• Freshmen Taylor Kissinger (Minden, Neb.) scored a team-high 22 points, while sophomore Bria Stallworth (Chicago, Ill.) added 15 points in the exhibition win over Minnesota State. Kissinger and Stallworth will likely see their first regular-season action in Husker uniforms on Saturday.

• Sophomore Rachel Blackburn, who redshirted in 2016-17 after undergoing multiple knee surgeries, is likely to return to regular-season action at Pinnacle Bank Arena for the Huskers on Saturday.

Scouting the SIUE Cougars
• Coach Paula Buscher brings SIU Edwardsville to Lincoln for the first time to take on Nebraska. Buscher’s bunch returns all five starters from last season’s Cougar club that finished 14-17 overall and 9-7 in the Ohio Valley Conference.

• SIUE was picked to finish second behind only Belmont in the 12-team OVC this season after finishing third a year ago.

• The Cougars are led by senior Donshel Beck, who earned preseason All-OVC honors. The 5-9 guard from St. Louis averaged 14.6 points and 7.5 rebounds as a junior.
• Fifth-year senior Lauren White averaged 12.0 points and 4.3 rebounds a year ago.
• Nakiah Bell, a 5-5 junior guard, averaged 10.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and a team-best 4.2 assists last season.
• Elina Berzina, a 5-10 senior guard/forward from Riga, Latvia, returns after starting 15 games last season while averaging 2.4 points and 1.4 boards.
• Sydney Bauman, a 6-3 junior center, is the only player on SIUE’s roster taller than 6-1. She averaged 4.9 points and 5.5 rebounds a year ago.

• SIUE forced 25 UM-St. Louis turnovers, but hit just 21-of-61 (.344) of its shots, while the Tritons knocked down 19-of-45 shots (.422). UMSL went just 2-for-10 from three-point range, but SIUE hit just 1-of-14 shots from long range. UMSL also connected on 18-of-28 free throws, compared to just 12-of-19 free throw shooting for the Cougars. UMSL also won the battle of the boards, 40-36.

23-21 Huskers at the Half. Pretty lack-luster, low-scoring half by Both teams!
