Nebraska-Indiana basketball preview
Nebraska comes into the Tuesday matchup with Indiana looking to bounce back from a 72-66 loss to Illinois on Sunday. Despite the Huskers’ rally back from an 11-point first-half deficit to the Fighting Illini, Nebraska was unable to get the win. The loss snapped Nebraska’s six-game Big Ten win streak.
Despite the loss, Isaac Copeland helped lead Nebraska in double figures with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Isaiah Roby added another 14 points and 10 rebounds. He also had 3 blocked shots.
Nebraska is still looking to secure one of the four double-byes for the Big Ten Tournament next week at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Huskers are currently tied with Michigan for fourth place, and a win over Indiana would put Nebraska in better position to secure a top-four league finish.
Beyond the Big Ten Tournament implications, a win on Tuesday also would match Nebraska’s school record for most conference wins in a season with 12. The only other Huskers teams to win 12 games in conference play are the 1965-66 (Big Eight) and 1915-16 (Missouri Valley) teams.
As for Indiana, the Hoosiers come into the matchup on a four-game win streak. Indiana most recently defeated Iowa 84-82 on Saturday. Senior guard Robert Johnson led Indiana with 29 points against Iowa, which included a school record 9 3-point shots. Devonte Green added another 19 points against the Hawkeyes.
Indiana also has Juwan Morgan, who is considered one of the Big Ten’s most improved players. He currently leads Indiana in scoring (16.6 ppg) and rebounding (7.3 rpg). This is an improvement from only 7.7 points per game last year. Johnson is also a big-time factor for Indiana. He is averaging 18.3 ppg, which includes 58 percent from 3-point range, during the team’s current win streak.
