Nebraska boosters sold out a bus trip to Drake to support the Huskers on Saturday.

• Nebraska is coming off arguably its best performance of the season with a 66-49 road win at Kansas Wednesday night. The Huskers dominated their former Big 12 Conference brethren 39-13 in the second after trailing by 13 late in the second quarter.

• Sophomore Hannah Whitish scored 25 of her career-high 29 points in the second half while going a perfect 6-for-6 from the field after halftime. She also set career bests by going 11-for-14 at the foul line, including eight straight free throws in the final 1:29 to seal the win. Whitish outscored Kansas 25-13 in the second half. It was Whitish’s second career 20-point performance and first of the season.

• Nebraska features one of the youngest lineups in the Big Ten with freshmen Taylor Kissinger (14.0 ppg) and Kate Cain (10.0 ppg) averaging double figures alongside Whitish (10.9 ppg). Sophomore Nicea Eliely (7.5 ppg) and junior Maddie Simon (7.2 ppg) round out Nebraska’s top five scorers.

Scouting Drake Bulldogs
• Drake enters the game with a 5-4 record. The Bulldogs have scored 100 or more points in back-to-back games, including a 108-100 loss to Creighton in four overtimes in Des Moines on Sunday.

• Drake has gone 11-deep in its rotation throughout the season with all 11 players on its roster competing in at least eight games this season. The Bulldogs have 203 assists on 277 made baskets (.733), making them an exceptional passing team.

• Drake is the highest scoring team Nebraska has faced this season, averaging 85.2 points per game. The Bulldogs are shooting 46.8 percent from the field, 33.5 percent from three-point range (9.2 3FG per game) and 73 percent from the line. Drake has scored 96 or more points four times this season.

• Drake is surrendering 76.2 points per game and allowing 9.1 threes per game, while opponents are shooting nearly 41 percent. The Bulldogs carry a minus-0.8 rebound margin and a plus-1.8 turnover margin. Against Iowa Wesleyan, Drake was plus-17 on the boards and plus-23 in turnover margin (30-7).
