Huskers Rebound for Win Over Penn State
Lincoln - Kate Cain produced one of the best rebounding efforts in school history while producing her fifth double-double of the season to power Nebraska to a 59-51 women's basketball win over Penn State on Thursday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
With the victory, Nebraska secured its 17th all-time 20-win season, improving to 20-8 overall and 11-4 in the Big Ten. Penn State slipped to 15-13 overall and 6-9 in the conference. The Huskers moved into a tie for second place in the Big Ten trailing only No. 14 Ohio State, which clinched a share of the conference title with its win on Wednesday night.

(Lots More Information on the Game Page)

• The Huskers will shoot for their 11th Big Ten victory of the season, which would secure a top-four seed in next week’s Big Ten Tournament. Nebraska, which could lock up its 17th 20-win season in school history, is also trying to stay in the hunt for the Big Ten regular-season title.

• Overall, Nebraska will be shooting for its eighth top-100 RPI win of the season against a Penn State squad that entered the week at No. 83. The Huskers own five top-100 wins on the road, including three against top-35 RPI teams Iowa (19), Rutgers (25) and Minnesota (34).

• Nebraska is 18-5 with Maddie Simon on the court this season. Simon missed four games (Creighton, Buffalo, Coastal Carolina, Clemson) with a significant ankle sprain suffered in warm-ups before the game with Creighton (Nov. 19). Simon missed the rest of NU’s games in November and the Huskers went 1-3.

• The Huskers played without senior Janay Morton in the losses to Creighton and Buffalo while she recovered from offseason ankle surgery. Morton played just one minute in the loss to Washington State after aggravating her ankle, while NU’s leading scoring in non-conference play (Taylor Kissinger, 14.0 ppg) did not play at all in the loss to WSU because of a knee injury suffered late in the loss to Clemson.

• In the last six games, Kissinger is averaging 18.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.7 blocks per 40 minutes, while Morton has added 18.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals per 40.

Scouting the Penn State Lady Lions
• The Lady Lions have had plenty of time and rest to prepare for the Big Red, as Penn State last played at home against Northwestern on Valentine’s Day - a 67-59 victory over the Wildcats.

• Penn State is 1-6 on the road in Big Ten play with its lone victory coming in a 69-62 win at Wisconsin on Jan. 14. Overall, the Lady Lions are 4-10 away from home this season.

• As a team, Penn State is averaging 70 points per game despite shooting just 39.9 percent from the field. The Lady Lions have hit 32.8 percent of their three-pointers and a strong 74.1 percent of their free throws. PSU is minus-2.5 boards per game, but plus-2.6 turnovers per game in a guard-oriented attack.

• On the defensive end, Penn State is surrendering 69.6 points per contest while opponents are shooting 42.5 percent from the field, including 34.9 percent from three-point range. In Big Ten play, the opposition is averaging 75.9 points and shooting a sizzling 46.9 percent from the field, including an incredible 43 percent from three-point range.
