What you need to know about Nebraska
This past Saturday, the Cornhuskers lost to the Indiana Hoosiers on the road by a decisive 68-55 margin. Guard Bryce McGowens had a tough game, finishing with only eight points on 3-for-14 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
The top-30 national recruit who committed to Nebraska out of South Carolina has still been a huge steal for Fred Hoiberg's program overall. The freshman is averaging 17.3 points and 6.9 rebounds per game this season while Arizona State transfer Alonzo Verge Jr. is averaging 15.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game in his first season with the program.
What you need to know about Michigan
Meanwhile, the San Diego State Aztecs typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday the Wolverines proved too difficult a challenge. Michigan captured a comfortable 72-58 win. The Wolverines can attribute much of their success to center Hunter Dickinson, who dropped a double-double on 23 points and 14 rebounds.
Dickinson is shooting 59.8 percent from the floor this season and averaging 14.5 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in his sophomore season. However, fifth-year guard Eli Brooks (14.4 ppg) is the only other player on the Michigan roster who is currently averaging double-figures in scoring per game. The Wolverines will need more ancillary scoring as they shift towards their difficult conference schedule.
