Huskers Blow Past Boilermakers, 75-51
Lincoln - The Nebraska women's basketball team played its best game of the season by rolling to a 75-51 win over Purdue on Wednesday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The Huskers, who improved to 15-6 overall and reached the halfway point of the Big Ten Conference regular season at 6-2, got significant contributions from all 12 players on the roster to register their third consecutive victory. The Big Red also put up an outstanding defensive effort, holding Purdue to just 18 points in the first half. The Boilermakers, who had their own three-game winning streak snapped, slipped to 13-8 overall and 4-3 in the Big Ten.

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• Nebraska, a perfect 7-0 in true road games this season, is coming off a 52-42 win at No. 25 Rutgers on Sunday, giving the Huskers back-to-back road wins.

• Purdue also posted back-to-back wins over ranked Rutgers (No. 21, Jan. 10) and at Iowa (No. 18, Jan. 13) teams two weeks ago, including a 47-33 win over the Scarlet Knights in West Lafayette, Ind., and a 76-70 win over the Hawkeyes in Iowa City.

• Purdue (No. 47) will be Nebraska’s fourth straight top-50 RPI opponent. Both Nebraska and Purdue received votes in this week’s Associated Press Top 25.

• Junior Maddie Simon and freshman Kate Cain have given the Huskers balance inside. Simon is averaging 11.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in Big Ten play, while Cain has contributed 10.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 blocks. Cain, who ranks No. 3 nationally with a Nebraska freshman record 71 blocks, is just seven blocks away from the school season block record (78)

• Sophomore Hannah Whitish is playing at an All-Big Ten level for the Big Red. The 5-9 guard is averaging 15.0 points and 4.9 assists in Big Ten play while shooting 53.7 percent (22-41) from three-point range.

Scouting The Purdue Boilermakers
• Purdue comes to Lincoln riding a three-game winning streak after a 63-60 win over Northwestern in West Lafayette, Ind., on Thursday, Jan. 18. The Boilermakers have enjoyed five days off since the win over the Wildcats, which followed back-to-back wins at then-No. 18 Iowa (76-70, Jan. 13) and then-No. 21 Rutgers (47-33, Jan. 10) at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette.

• The always tough and hard-nosed Boilermakers are holding opponents to just 59.9 points per game. Purdue has featured a plus-1.2 turnover margin but a minus-2.3 rebounding margin in conference play, while scoring just 57.8 points per league game.

• The extra rest came at a good time for a thin Purdue roster that has withstood the departure of Tiara Murphy from the program, a season-ending injury to Fatou Diagne and a significant injury to Dani Lawson that has allowed her to play just five games this year.

• The Boilermakers won their last two games without starter Lamina Cooper, who missed both contests with illness. Cooper started Purdue’s first 18 games before being sidelined for the past two contests by illness. She averaged 9.9 points and 4.0 rebounds while leading the Boilermakers with 43 steals.

• Purdue has struggled offensively in the Big Ten, shooting just 38.9 percent from the field, including 32.2 percent from three-point range. However, two of Purdue’s first six games came against Rutgers.

• Against Iowa, Purdue hit 50.9 percent (29-57) of its shots from the field, including 52.9 percent (9-17) of its threes. The Boilermakers hit 9-of-10 free throws against Iowa and are shooting a stellar 81.1 percent at the line in conference play.
