Huskers Hold Off Wisconsin
Lincoln - In a 40-minute defensive slugfest, Nebraska held Wisconsin to just one field goal in the final 4:40 to come back from a 46-44 deficit and claim a 51-48 women's basketball win over the visiting Badgers on Sunday afternoon at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
With the victory in a front a season-high crowd of 6,823 pink-clad fans on Play4Kay day, Nebraska improved to 18-7 overall and 9-3 in the Big Ten to move into a tie with nationally ranked Ohio State in the league standings. The Huskers trail only No. 10 Maryland in the league race. Wisconsin slipped to 9-17 overall and 2-11 in the conference.

Husker Ladies (17-7) (8-3), Sagarin ranking: #53 (@ 2/11/18)
(#167 @ 4/2/17)
Husker Ladies, ranked #53 don't get much respect from Sagarin, still well behind teams we have defeated, #35 Minnesota, #33 Rutgers, and Swept #32 Iowa.
Guess we'll just have to beat #38 Michigan State Too!

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• The Huskers will try to get back on the winning track after having their five-game winning streak snapped with a 64-57 loss to No. 11 Maryland (Feb. 4). The setback dropped Nebraska to 8-3 in the Big Ten with all three losses to current top-25 teams (No. 10 Maryland, No. 13 Ohio State, No. 21 Michigan) at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

• Five of Nebraska’s eight Big Ten wins have come against NCAA RPI Top 55 teams (through games Feb. 5), including at Rutgers (14), Iowa (23, twice), Purdue (35), and at Minnesota (52). NU’s only conference losses have come to RPI No. 5 Ohio State, No. 18 Maryland and RPI No. 34 Michigan in overtime.

• Nebraska’s other losses were setbacks to No. 22 Buffalo, No. 39 Creighton, No. 83 Washington State and No. 149 Clemson. The Huskers played without starter Maddie Simon in the losses to Buffalo, Creighton and Clemson, while their leading scorer in non-conference play, Taylor Kissinger (14.0 ppg), missed the game with Washington State because of injury.

• Nebraska is one of only five NCAA Division I teams that is unbeaten in true road games this year joining Mercer (11-0), UConn (10-0), Louisville (10-0) and Mississippi State (6-0).

Scouting the Wisconsin Badgers
• Coach Jonathan Tsipsis brings his second Wisconsin team, returning four starters off last year's team, to Lincoln for its only regular-season meeting with the Huskers this season.

• Senior guard Cayla McMorris leads Wisconsin with 13.7 points per game this season, while ranking second on the squad with 6.4 rebounds.

• Junior forward Marsha Howard ranks second among the Badgers with 11.4 points per game while leading the team with 7.1 rebounds per contest.

• Sophomore Courtney Fredrickson, a 6-2 forward has added 9.3 points and 5.8 rebounds this season.

• Fellow sophomore Suzanne Gilreath provides production with long-range shooting off the bench, averaging 9.5 points per game. Gilreath has hit exactly half (61) of UW’s threes (122) this season. While she has hit 61-of-172 (.355), the rest of the Badgers are 61-of-239 (.255) and no other Badger has hit 33 percent of their attempts.

• Another sophomore, Kendra Van Leeuwen is averaging 4.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and a team-best 1.6 steals per game this season.

• In Big Ten play, the Badgers have struggled to average just 55.7 points while surrendering 67.2 points per contest. They are shooting just 37.9 percent from the field, including 28.3 percent from three-point range. UW has a minus-6.0 rebound margin and a minus-2.9 turnover margin against the league.
