Nebraska will honor senior Maddie Simon (Lincoln, Nebraska) in an on-court ceremony following the game. The Lincoln Pius X graduate has played in 105 games in her Husker career, scoring nearly 700 points while grabbing more than 300 rebounds.


• The Nebraska women’s basketball team aims for a season series split with No. 10 Iowa at PBA.

• The Huskers are coming off back-to-back wins after working their way to a 71-64 win at Northwestern, following an 82-71 win over No. 24 Michigan State at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

• Nebraska is one of four teams with an 8-8 record. The Huskers have at least one win over every team (Michigan, Ohio State, Minnesota, Purdue [2], Northwestern and Michigan State) in the No. 4 through No. 9 spots in the conference standings as of Feb. 22.

• Nebraska is 1-4 against the top four teams in the Big Ten standings, with two losses to No. 8 Maryland, one loss to No. 10 Iowa, a loss to previously ranked Rutgers and a loss at Michigan.

• Iowa is 2-2 in its Big Ten games decided by two possessions, including a six-point win over Nebraska (Jan. 3). The Hawkeyes are coming off a 75-73 loss at Indiana.

Scouting the Iowa Hawkeyes


• The No. 10 Hawkeyes are No. 2 in the Big Ten standings at 12-4 after losing 75-73 at Indiana on Thursday night. Prior to the loss the Hawkeyes had put themselves in the driver’s seat for the No. 1 seed at the Big Ten Tournament with an 86-73 win over No. 7 Maryland, but a Maryland win against Minnesota Thursday put the Terps back on top in the conference race.
• Iowa is led by All-American Megan Gustafson, a 6-3 senior forward, with 2,542 career points and 1,332 career rebounds in her 126 career games. She is shooting a career-best 70.4 percent from the field and 78 percent at the free throw line.
• Over the last six games, Gustafson is averaging 30.7 points and 14.5 rebounds. In the first meeting with Nebraska this season, she had 28 points and 17 boards.

• Iowa leads the Big Ten in scoring (80.6 ppg), field goal percentage (.519), free throw percentage (.762) and assists (21.9 apg) while ranking 11th in the conference in scoring defense (68.6 ppg) and ninth in field goal percentage defense (.405) and three-point field goal percentage defense (.319).
