(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• Nebraska’s 6-2 record at the halfway point of conference play matches the best record for the Huskers since joining the Big Ten in 2011-12 (6-2). That Husker team, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament, opened with an 8-2 record and finished 10-6.

• Four of Nebraska’s six Big Ten wins have come against NCAA RPI Top 50 teams (through games Jan. 24), including at Rutgers (14), Iowa (31), at Minnesota (43) and Purdue (46). NU’s only conference losses have come to RPI No. 6 Ohio State and RPI No. 23 Michigan in overtime.

• Nebraska, which is a perfect 7-0 in true road games this season including 4-0 in the Big Ten, is coming off its most impressive performance of the season in a 75-51 victory over Purdue on Wednesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.

• Iowa, which lost to Nebraska, 74-65 in Lincoln on Jan. 16, will be Nebraska’s fifth straight top-50 RPI opponent and seventh in the Huskers’ first nine Big Ten games. Both Nebraska and Iowa received votes in this week’s Associated Press Poll and the Hawkeyes are No. 25 in this week’s WBCA/USA Today Top 25.

Scouting The Iowa Hawkeyes
• Coach Lisa Bluder brings her Iowa Hawkeyes into Sunday’s game at Carver-Hawkeye following an impressive 103-89 win over No. 12 Ohio State in Iowa City on Thursday night. The win snapped Iowa’s three-game losing streak. Iowa enters Sunday’s game with a 16-5 overall record and a 4-4 Big Ten mark.

• Junior Megan Gustafson led Iowa with 29 points on 9-of-14 shooting and five rebounds against the Buckeyes. Gustafson had 29 points and 18 rebounds in the loss at Nebraska (Jan. 16).

• Gustafson is one of four Hawkeyes averaging in double figures, including sophomore Mackenzie Meyer (11.3 ppg). Meyer missed Iowa’s first six Big Ten games with a broken bone in her left (non-shooting) hand before returning to play 40 minutes in a 77-72 loss at Minnesota (Jan. 21). Meyer pumped in 18 points on 4-of-6 threes in the win over Ohio State. She did not play in the first meeting with Nebraska. In Iowa’s first 13 games, Meyer averaged 11.3 points and 5.0 assists while hitting 41.3 percent (26-63) of her threes.

• Iowa, which went 9-for-17 from three-point range in the win over Ohio State, hit just 5-of-37 threes (.135) during their three-game losing streak. The Hawkeyes went 0-for-7 at Nebraska, 2-for-14 from at Minnesota and 3-for-16 against Purdue. The Hawkeyes were outscored 66-15 from long range in the losses, including 27-0 at Nebraska.

• Sophomore point guard Kathleen Doyle ranks second among the Hawkeyes in scoring with 11.5 points per game, including 14.6 points and 8.4 assists in Big Ten play. Doyle is playing 38.8 minutes per game in the Big Ten. Doyle erupted for 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting, including 4-of-8 threes against Ohio State. in Iowa’s three-game skid, Doyle was 3-for-16 (.188) from long range.
