Last Time Out

• Nebraska is coming off a tough 67-66 loss to Clemson in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Thursday. The Huskers led 66-61 with 3:28 left but went scoreless down the stretch. The drought came after a 12-1 surge by the Big Red that turned a 60-54 fourth-quarter deficit into a five-point lead.

• Freshman Taylor Kissinger led the Huskers with 17 points against Clemson. The 6-1 guard from Minden is Nebraska’s leading scorer with 14.0 points per game through the first seven games. She has added 4.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

• Fellow freshman Kate Cain ranks second among the Huskers in scoring with 9.9 points per contest while also ranking second on the team with 5.6 rebounds. The 6-5 center from Middletown, N.Y., had 11 points, eight rebounds and a career-high six blocks against Clemson. Cain’s six blocks tied the Nebraska freshman record, and Cain's 22 blocks this season are just six short of becoming one of the top-five season totals by a freshman at Nebraska. Cain is averaging 3.1 blocks per game.

• Thursday night’s game featured the Husker debut of senior Janay Morton. The guard, who spent her first three seasons at Eastern Michigan, has been recovering from offseason foot surgery and missed Nebraska’s first six games this season. Morton hit her only field goal attempt and was 2-for-2 at the line to finish with five points and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench against the Tigers.

Scouting the Arkansas Pine Bluff Lady Lions
• Coach Nate Kilbert brings Arkansas Pine Bluff to Lincoln with a 2-3 record after a 97-61 road loss at Austin Peay on Wednesday night. The Lady Lions have also suffered setbacks at Texas Tech and Dayton, after opening the season with back-to-back wins over Tougaloo College and Philander Smith.

• One of Arkansas Pine Bluff’s top players is senior Malaik Muhammad, who ranks fourth on the team in scoring with 7.8 points per game, including a team-high 14 points in the loss at Texas Tech on Nov. 19. Last season, Muhammad averaged 5.5 points and 2.1 rebounds per game.

• Fellow senior Faith Ohanta has been Arkansas Pine Bluff’s top scorer and rebounder through the first five games, averaging 15.0 points and 10.0 boards per game. Ohanta erupted for a career-high 30 points to go along with 13 rebounds in the win over Philander Smith at H.O. Clemmons Arena in Pine Bluff on Nov. 16. She added 25 points and 15 rebounds in a loss to Austin Peay on Wednesday. Ohanta averaged 8.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in 2016-17.

• UAPB’s top returning scorer from last season is senior Destiny Brewton. The 5-7 guard averaged 9.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 2016-17. She has produced 8.2 points and 2.0 rebounds while leading the Lady Lions with 3.8 assists this season, despite starting just two of the first five games.

• Junior college transfer Alexus Bryson is averaging 5.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game while splitting starting time at point guard with Brewton.

• Shawntayla Harris, a 6-0 junior guard, has produced 8.6 points and 6.2 rebounds early this season.

Maddie should be back (warming up on floor) :), Taylor Kissinger in street clothes and not warming up - reportedly tweaked her knee vs Clemson. :(

Husker Ladies come out on fire, hitting on all cylinders (well except for Taylor Kissinger who is out).
Lead UA-PB 22-4 at the end of 1.

Husker Ladies win 73-52 as pesky Arkansas - Pine Bluff wins the 2nd half and forces presses at the end of the game. Husker Ladies still need to work on TOs and FT shooting.

According to Matt & Jeff we were not finishing well, missing several lay-ups/easy shots in the 3re & 4th quarters. I liked all the assists (24). It was nice seeing Maddie back, and more mins for Rachel. :)
