Huskers Hand No. 25 Rutgers First Home Loss
Piscataway, N.J. - The Nebraska women's basketball road warriors continued their winning ways away from home with a 52-42 upset of No. 25 Rutgers on Sunday evening at the Rutgers Athletic Center.

Nebraska's eighth consecutive road win was also the first home loss of the year for the RPI No. 11 Scarlet Knights, who entered the game 12-0 at the RAC. The Huskers, who led for the final 35 minutes of the game, improved to 14-6 overall and 5-2 in the Big Ten with their seventh consecutive true road win. Rutgers slipped to 17-5 overall and 5-3 in the Big Ten with its second straight loss since being mentioned as the No. 15 seed in the first NCAA Tournament Seed Selection announcement on Thursday.

Nebraska's victory marked its second straight win over a top-25 opponent, following a 74-65 win over No. 20 Iowa in Lincoln on Tuesday. It marked the first time since back-to-back wins over ranked Michigan State and Iowa teams in the 2014 Big Ten Tournament semifinals and finals that the Huskers had beaten top-25 foes in consecutive games.

Husker Ladies (13-6) (4-2), Sagarin ranking: #76 78 76 69 (@ 1/21/18)

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• Nebraska shoots for its first-ever win at the RAC. They face a Rutgers team allowing just 55.6 points per game to rank 16th nationally in 2017-18.

• Nebraska is one of only six teams nationally (through games Jan. 18) that owns a plus-six or better improvement in the win column over 2016-17. The team that has shown the most improvement is Rutgers. The No. 25 Scarlet Knights are plus 11 in the win column at 17-4 (6-24, 2016-17).

Nebraska notched a 74-65 win over No. 20 Iowa in Lincoln on Tuesday. Compared to last season, Nebraska is 8.1 points per game better offensively, scoring 70.9 ppg (vs 62.8 ppg) and 11.2 points per game better defensively , allowing 65.1 ppg (vs. 76.3 ppg).

• Sophomore Hannah Whitish is averaging 16.0 points and 4.8 assists in Big Ten play while shooting 52.8 percent (19-36) from three-point range.

• Junior Maddie Simon and freshman Kate Cain have given the Huskers balance inside. Simon is averaging 12.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in Big Ten play, while Cain has contributed 9.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks. Cain, who ranks No. 3 nationally with a Nebraska freshman record 68 blocks, is just 10 blocks away from the school season block record (78).

Scouting The Rutgers Scarlet Knights
• Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer brings her resurgent Rutgers program into Sunday’s game against Nebraska at the top of the Big Ten standings and ranked in the top 25.

• The 17-4 Scarlet Knights are 5-2 in the Big Ten after a 70-67 loss at Penn State on Thursday night. Rutgers, which was listed as the No. 15 seed in the first release of NCAA Tournament projected seeds earlier Thursday, also suffered a Big Ten loss at Purdue (47-33) on Jan. 10.

• The biggest reason for the Rutgers revival is the return of senior Tyler Scaife. The 5-9 guard is averaging 20.5 points per game after redshirting last season to undergo heart surgery to repair a congenital defect.

• With Scaife anchoring the offense, the Scarlet Knights are averaging 68.3 points per game.

• Defensively, Rutgers has improved significantly, surrendering 55.6 points per game to rank 16th nationally in scoring defense.

• This year the Scarlet Knights rank No. 2 in the nation with 265 steals while ranking No. 8 with 12.6 steals per game to help create a plus-6.0 turnover margin, which ranks 19th in the country.

• The Scarlet Knights rank No. 7 nationally with 116 blocks and 25th in field goal percentage defense (.358). • Stasha Carey, a 6-2 junior transfer from Pittsburgh, ranks second on the team in scoring with 7.3 points per game while adding 7.7 rebounds per contest. The athletic Carey owns 37 steals and 24 blocks.

• Khadaizha Sanders, a 5-7 junior guard who is the top returning scorer from a year ago after averaging 7.3 points per game, has contributed 4.9 points and 3.5 assists while adding 34 steals.

• Victoria Harris, a 6-3 senior center has pitched in 4.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 31 steals and 25 blocks while leading Rutgers with her 59.4 field goal percentage.

The Scarlet Knights will be particularly tough Tomorrow After losing in such fashion to Penn State!
(But I think the Husker Raider's are up to it; and may be even a little tougher.)

"You won't believe how the Rutgers women's basketball team lost to Penn State"
Trailing by one point in the final seconds, Penn State's Teniya Page was rewarded three free throws when fouled in the act of shooting a 3-pointer. The foul call caused Stringer to erupt, and the officials -- Tina Napier, Michael McConnell and Tiara Cruse were the crew -- hit the Scarlet Knights coach with a technical foul.

If any of this feels like 'Déjà vu,' this is from the game stats for the Husker's loss to Michigan.
Officials: Tina Napier, Cameron Inouye, Tiffany Bird
Technical fouls: Michigan-None. Nebraska-None.
Attendance: 4279
Spot any familiar names?

Edit: I was told that Tina Napier was not the official that made the last minute foul call at the Nebraska game.
