Huskers Fall Short to Top 10 Terps
Lincoln - Taylor Kissinger scored 18 points and the Nebraska defense kept the USA Today No. 10 Maryland women's basketball team within striking distance, but the Terrapins prevailed 64-57 at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Maryland sophomore Kaila Charles helped the Terps improve to 20-3 overall and 9-1 in the Big Ten by scoring 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting while adding a game-high 16 rebounds. The Terrapins have won 18 of their last 19 games.
Kissinger, a freshman guard for the Huskers, answered with 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting, including 4-of-8 threes, in 27 minutes off the bench for the Big Red. Nebraska slipped to 17-7 overall and 8-3 in the Big Ten, as the Huskers had their five-game winning streak snapped.
The loss marked the closest game in the series with the perennial power and three-time defending Big Ten champion Terrapins. It was the first time the Huskers have played Maryland within single digits in seven all-time meetings. Last year, the Huskers lost to Maryland by 44 points in Lincoln.

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• The Nebraska women’s basketball team takes on its toughest opponent of the regular season when the Huskers meet USA Today Coaches No. 10 Maryland on Sunday in Lincoln. Tip-off between the Huskers (17-6, 7-2 Big Ten) and the Terrapins (19-3, 8-1 Big Ten) is set for 2 p.m. (CT) at Pinnacle Bank Arena with first place in the Big Ten standings on the line.

• Fans are encouraged to buy tickets in advance on Huskers.com to avoid lines at the ticket windows at Pinnacle Bank Arena on game day.

• The Huskers are riding a five-game winning streak after a 62-47 win over Illinois at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Thursday night to open a three-game home stand. The Terps bring a four-game winning streak to Lincoln following a Thursday win over Rutgers in College Park. Maryland, which has won three straight Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles since joining the Big Ten for the 2014-15 season, suffered its only conference loss in an 82-68 setback to Michigan State on Jan. 11.

Scouting the Maryland Terrapins
• Coach Brenda Frese has her 16th Maryland team climbing in the rankings as the Terrapins sit alone atop the Big Ten Conference standings. The Terps shoot for their 20th win of the year, which would mark their 14th straight season with 20 or more victories. • Maryland is winning at a high level despite losing two All-Americans in guard Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and center Brionna Jones along with the 2017 National Freshman of the Year in point guard Destiny Slocum, while also suffering the loss of one of its top players this season - sophomore guard Blair Watson (13.8 ppg, 4.2 rpg) just five games ago.

• With a revamped roster, Maryland opened the season with a 2-2 record with its losses coming to defending national champion South Carolina and current No. 1 UConn before Thanksgiving. Since then, the Terrapins have won 17 of 18 games with their lone loss coming to Michigan State (Jan. 11) a day after learning they had lost Watson for the season with a knee injury.

• Maryland may not be as potent or experienced as previous seasons, but the Terrapins are still loaded.

Too many turnovers from throwaways, but as Matt says, just good defense by Maryland.

We can blame Maryland's defense for our turnovers and poorer shooting. On the other hand Maryland is way OFF their game too, Credit Nebraska Defense. Get a couple of things going our way in the second half and we can Win this! :Pirate:
