What you need to know about Nebraska
The Huskers notched their biggest win under head coach Fred Hoiberg on Sunday at No. 7 Creighton, 63-53. Derrick Walker scored a game-high 22 points to go with eight rebounds and a pair of assists in the win. Walker is the leading scorer for Nebraska this season, averaging 16.8 points with 9.5 rebounds per game. Sam Griesel also had a nice showing, knocking down 6-of-12 shots to score 18 points along with 12 rebounds against the Bluejays.
One thing that Nebraska has been strong at this season is limiting extra scoring chances for their opponents. The Huskers have only seen others shoot 9.6 free throws and make 5.7 of them per contest, which is fourth- and third-lowest in the nation, respectively. The Huskers haver to stay disciplined because they only score 69.9 points per game, but they have allowed just 63.9 this year.
What you need to know about Indiana
After their big win against the Tar Heels, Indiana just didn't show up for its game against Rutgers, losing 63-48. The Hoosiers shot just 30.4% from the field in the loss. While just about everyone else struggled with their shooting, Miller Kopp made 8-of-12 shots and finished with 21 points. Trayce Jackson-Davis scored 13 points, but only four other players scored at all for Indiana, and three of them only finished with two points.
The loss was a stark departure from Indiana's performance in all other games this year. For the season, the Hoosiers have hit 52.1% of their shots and score 82.3 points per game. Defensively, they have held opponents to shoot just 36.4% this year, which is the 13th-lowest mark in the country.
