Nebraska-Iowa basketball preview
Nebraska returns home to Pinnacle Bank Arena looking for another conference win after defeating Rutgers 60-54 on Wednesday. Isaac Copeland led the team against the Scarlet Knights with 23 points. It was also Copeland’s fourth 20-point game of the year, hitting 9-of-15 shots from the field. He also had 7 rebounds and 2 blocks.
The Huskers’ strong defensive effort also continued, holding Rutgers to its lowest offensive total at home at just 34 percent shooting. That means Nebraska has now held its last 5 opponents to a combined 39 percent shooting.
As for Iowa, the Hawkeyes come into the matchup after an 85-67 victory over Wisconsin on Tuesday. Iowa’s Tyler Cook and Luke Garza both scored 17 points against the Badgers, including 16 rebounds. Five players were in double figured by the end of the game.
Iowa has been up and down during the 2017-18 season, going 4-6 in the first 10 games. The Hawkeyes then closed nonconference play with 5 straight wins. Despite the roller-coaster ride, Iowa is still third in the Big Ten in scoring offense (80.5 points per game), fourth in 3-point percentage (.377) and fifth in field-goal percentage (.478). However, the Hawkeyes are also last in scoring defense (76.4 points per game).
The matchup is a part of the NABC Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers weekend and Nebraska will raise awareness for the National Bone Marrow Registry. Avery Harriman, the son of former Husker assistant coach Chris Harriman, will be honored Saturday along other local children fighting cancer. Harriman has battled leukemia since he was 2-years old and has had two bone marrow transplants. He is now 10.
Fans in attendance will have an opportunity to join the National Bone Marrow Registry on Saturday. Nebraska has helped nearly 700 people sign up for the registry as a part of the #AveryStrong game over the past four years, and four people have been matched to those waiting for bone marrow transplants.
