Huskers Knock Off No. 20 Iowa, 74-65

Lincoln - Maddie Simon poured in 19 points, Hannah Whitish added 18 and Taylor Kissinger contributed 12 points, including Nebraska's final four points at the free throw line, as the young Huskers battled their way to a 74-65 women's basketball win over Iowa on Tuesday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena.


The victory was Nebraska's first over a top-25 foe under second-year coach Amy Williams and it snapped Iowa's five-game winning streak in the all-time series with the Huskers. It also ended Nebraska's three-game losing streak at home, while moving Nebraska to 13-6 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten. The Huskers moved within one game in the loss column of the top of the Big Ten standings, after No. 19 Michigan upset at No. 8 Ohio State earlier Tuesday evening. The Buckeyes were 5-0 in the league before the loss to the Wolverines.

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

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• Nebraska shoots for its first win over a top-25 team this season when the Huskers face Iowa. The Huskers opened Big Ten play with a 73-61 loss to No. 12 Ohio State (Dec. 28) before taking No. 23 Michigan to overtime in a 69-64 loss to the Wolverines on Saturday at Pinnacle Bank Arena; and will wrap up @ No. 25 Rutgers on Sunday.

• Compared to last season, Nebraska is 7.9 points per game better offensively (70.7-62.8 ppg) and 11.2 points per game better defensively (65.1-76.3 ppg).

• Sophomore Hannah Whitish is playing at an All-Big Ten level for the Big Red. The 5-9 guard is averaging 15.6 points and 5.6 assists in Big Ten play while shooting 53.1 percent (17-32) from three-point range.

• Junior Maddie Simon and freshman Kate Cain have given the Huskers balance inside. Simon is averaging 10.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists in conference play, while Cain has contributed 10.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.4 blocks.

• In Big Ten action, Nicea Eliely (8.8 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 3.0 apg) and Jasmine Cincore (7.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 2.4 apg) have given even more offensive balance and strong defensive play to the Husker starting five.


Scouting The No. 20 Iowa Hawkeyes
The Hawkeyes, whose only non-conference loss came with a 94-93 setback to a top-15 Florida State team in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge in Iowa City on Nov. 29, then fell to another top-15 foe at Maryland on Jan. 4. Iowa bounced back with a 13-point win at Illinois (Jan. 7) before Saturday’s 76-70 home loss to Purdue.

Injuries and transfers have left the Hawkeyes with just eight players through the first five Big Ten games. Wing Bre Cera and Jinaya Houston, another wing, have transferred from the program.
Fourth-year junior point guard Tania Davis suffered a season-ending ACL injury, and Mackenzie Meyer suffered a broken bone in her hand.

For the season, Iowa is averaging 79.8 points while surrendering just 65.7 points per game. In Big Ten play, the short-handed Hawkeyes have managed 71.2 points while allowing 69.0 points per game. In conference play, the Hawkeyes have controlled the boards (+7.4 rpg) but have struggled with a minus-5.4 turnover margin playing without a pair of their starting guards.

• While limited numbers have been a major story for the Hawkeyes, the biggest story has been 6-3 junior center Megan Gustafson who is contending for Big Ten Player-of-the-Year and All-America honors. Gustafson is averaging 26.8 points and 13.6 rebounds in Big Ten play, while adding 3.8 blocks per contest. She is shooting 68.1 percent from the field and 97.6 percent (40-41) at the free throw line in Big Ten action.

• Sophomore point guard Kathleen Doyle has added 12.6 points and 9.6 assists per game in Big Ten play. Doyle has hit 34.8 percent (8-of-23) of her three-pointers in conference play but went just 1-for-6 in the loss to Purdue.

• Redshirt freshman Alexis Sevillian has also stepped into a starring role in Big Ten play, averaging 11.4 points per game. Sevillian went just 1-for-9 from long range against Purdue, as the Hawkeyes hit just 3-of-16 three-point attempts in the loss to the Boilermakers.

• Senior Chase Coley, a 6-3 forward has started every game this season alongside Gustafson inside. Coley is averaging 9.6 points and 5.4 boards in Big Ten play.

• Amanda Ollinger, a 6-1 sophomore forward, has filled the starting five in Big Ten play. She is managing 1.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in league play.

• Freshman guard Hannah Stewart (5.2 ppg, 3.0 rpg) and junior forward Carly Mohns (3.8 ppg, 4.2 rpg) also have stepped up their production in league play to help the Hawkeyes.

We'll have our hands full with the Iowa center, Megan Gustafson. She''s mobile and has been B1G player of the week five times and has recently been added to the Wooden watch list.

Biggest advantage for the Huskers is depth. Iowa suits up only 9 due to injuries.

... so if we break a few do they just have to concede?

I repeat...... Husker Ladies gotta make those shots (and those Free Throws) if they are going to stay in this. (lottsa in & Out Shots for the Huskers)

In & Out is OK for Hamburgers, but not for Husker shot attempts.

Iowa doesn't miss (many) But Huskers have 3 BLOCKS Already! :Cheer2:

8-1 Iowa after 3 mins of play.
