The Huskers (10-9, 2-5 B1G) come off one of their finest offensive efforts of the season, knocking off Minnesota, 82-78 on Sunday. The Huskers shot 50 percent from the field, including 11-of-22 from 3-point range, and used a career night from sophomore Terran Petteway to subdue the Gophers. Petteway hit 10-of-15 shots from the field, including four 3-pointers, while also going 11-of-14 from the foul line. His 35-point night was the highest in conference action, while the Huskers’ 82 points were the most in a conference game since 2011.

Petteway has been one of the best newcomers in the Big Ten, as the 6-foot-6 guard/forward is third in the conference in scoring at 18.2 points per game and has reached double figures in each of the last 15 games. In Big Ten games, he has been even better, ranking second in scoring (19.2 ppg), eighth in rebounding (6.6 rpg) and 10th in field goal percentage (.495).

The Huskers have been tough in their new home, going 9-1 in the first season at Pinnacle Bank Arena with the only loss coming in a 71-70 setback to Michigan on Jan. 9.

Indiana (13-7, 3-4 Big Ten) comes to Lincoln after turning in one of its best defensive performances of the year, holding Illinois to 46 points in a 56-46 victory. The Hoosiers, who snapped a two-game losing streak, held Illinois to 33 percent shooting and out-rebounded the Illini, 42-28. Sophomore Yogi Ferrell led IU with 17 points and five assists, and ranks among the Big Ten leaders in both scoring (17.5 ppg) and assists (4.0 apg).

Scouting Indiana
Indiana comes to Lincoln with a 13-7 record following a 56-46 win over Illinois on Sunday. Under fifth-year head coach Tom Crean, the Hoosiers are a different team than the 2012-13 squad which featured two NBA Lottery picks and won the Big Ten regular-season title. The Hoosiers returned just one starter from a 29-7 squad that reached the NCAA Sweet 16.

Indiana has been up and down in conference play, including a win over then-unbeaten and No. 3 Wisconsin before falling at Northwestern at home four days later. While Indiana averages 76.3 points per game, the Hoosiers’ strength is a defense which holds teams to under 40 percent shooting, while IU out-rebounds teams by a conference best 11.1 boards per game.

Sophomore point guard Yogi Ferrell is one of the Big Ten’s top performers, as he averages a team-high 17.5 points along with 4.0 assists per game to rank in the top 10 in the Big Ten in both categories. Ferrell also shoots better than 40 percent from 3-point range for the Hoosiers. Noah Vonleh is one of the front runners for Big Ten Freshman of the year, as the 6-foot-10 forward averages 12.0 points and a Big Ten leading 9.6 rebounds per game. He leads the Big Ten with eight double-doubles on the season. Senior forward Will Sheehey is the third Hoosier in double figures, as he averages 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

This is the third matchup between Crean and Nebraska Coach Tim Miles. In addition to last year’s meeting in Bloomington, Miles’ North Dakota State team upset eighth-ranked Marquette, 64-60, in the championship game of the 2006 Blue and Gold Classic in Milwaukee.
