Nebraska finally looks ready to compete in the Big Ten. They beat Michigan State at home a month ago and now look to add the scalp of the Indiana Hoosiers. the Hoosiers have won three straight and could be getting guard Xavier Johnson back tonight. Indiana will need to control the tempo of this game, as Nebraska will want to play fast. The Hoosiers must control the glass to win this game and defend the three-point shot better than they have been this season. Both of these teams are promising but have many questions surrounding them. Tonight’s game should start to give us the answers to those questions.
Nebraska has been an unexpected surprise this season, boasting an 11-2 record and four straight victories leading into this Big Ten matchup with Indiana. Most recently, Nebraska defeated South Carolina State with an emphatic 91-61 win on Friday at home shooting 47% from the field and 55% in the first half (an astonishing 55-11 lead was established). C.J. Wilcher led Nebraska in scoring with 18 points off of 7-of-9 shooting as part of four Cornhuskers scoring double figures.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers have enjoyed an unexpected 11-2 start, including an impressive Big Ten win against Michigan State at home this season. Nebraska ranks 73rd nationally in scoring offense and ranks 163rd for field goal percentage and three-point shooting . Unlike Indiana, they utilize 3-point field goals per game as part of their offense; 51st nationally to date in three-point field goals per game is their total average for this season! Defensively they rank 40th nationwide with the third-best opponent field goal percentage and 15th-best 3-point defense. Nebraska are 10th overall in terms of total rebound per game while ranking at 91st when it comes to turnovers per game vs opponents!
Indiana improved to 10-3 after three straight wins and their 100-87 win against Kennesaw State on Friday night, including Malike Reneau’s double-double of 34 points and 11 rebounds to lead six Hoosiers into double figures. Of note for Indiana head coach Mike Woodson was their 17 3-point field goals allowed against Kennesaw State during this matchup. The Hoosiers have been terrible at defending the perimeter this season, that will have to change tonight.
Indiana ranks 95th nationally for points per game while placing 22nd for field goal percentage, three-point field goals per game aren’t a major part of their offense either with 350th rank in 3-point field goals per game ranked by them this season. They rank 196th nationally in scoring defense while ranking 93rd against opponent field goal percentage and 249th against 3-point defense as well as being 179th for total rebounding and 165th in turnovers per game this year.
Will Xavier johnson play tonight? If he does, how effective will he be after missing most of the early pre-conference schedule? Trey Galloway will need to have a great game if the Hoosiers are to pull off the upset.
O am taking the Hoosiers to at least cover in this game. The Hoosiers should be able to control the boards and they will do enough offensively to take this game to the final minutes. look for a big night from Trey Galloway. Hoosiers +4.5!
