• Nebraska enters its first clash with a Power Five Conference foe with a 2-0 record after an 80-60 win over UMKC at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Tuesday night.

• Freshman guard Taylor Kissinger (Minden, Neb.) led a balanced Big Red attack with a career-high 18 points while knocking down a career-best four three-pointers.

• Kissinger was joined in double figures by junior forward Maddie Simon (Lincoln, Neb.), who had 11 points and a career-high-matching eight rebounds, and sophomore forward Grace Mitchell (Wellington, Kan.), who had a career-high 10 points. All 10 Huskers had at least two points and two rebounds.

• Center Kate Cain earned her first career start against UMKC after being named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week (Nov. 13). The 6-5 Cain had 18 points, nine rebounds and a career-high three blocks off the bench in her debut. She added eight points and two blocks in the win over UMKC.

• Sophomore Nicea Eliely and senior guard Janay Morton enter the season with injuries and will likely be unavailable for Thursday’s game with Arkansas. Both are hopeful to return to full strength early in the non-conference season.

Scouting the Arkansas Razorbacks
• Coach Mike Neighbors leads Arkansas to Lincoln for the first time in his first season at the helm of the Razorbacks.

• Sophomore guard Malica Monk led the Razorbacks to a 2-0 record over the weekend by averaging 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and team bests with 5.0 assists and 3.0 steals. Monk averaged 9.1 points per game a year ago.

• Senior guard Devin Cosper averaged 17.5 points and a team-best 8.5 rebounds in wins over Sam Houston State and Samford. Cosper averaged 6.4 points per game last season.

• Jailyn Mason gave the Razorbacks three players averaging in double figures through the first two games. The 5-9 sophomore guard averaged 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists. • Forwards Kiara Williams (8.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg) and Bailey Zimmerman (1.5 ppg, 1.5 rpg) rounded out the Arkansas starting five in the first two games.

• Junior Keiryn Swenson produced 7.0 points per game off the bench on opening weekend. Swenson averaged 8.0 points and 4.1 rebounds as a part-time starter for the Razorbacks last season.

• Freshman Taylah Thomas made the biggest impact for the Razorback reserves on opening weekend, averaging 8.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in 19 minutes per game. Thomas went 7-for-8 from the field.

Great effort tonight. Cincore's best game as a Husker. Blackburn played great in her limited minutes. Overcame Whitish really struggling.
