Nebraska-Penn State basketball preview
Nebraska (12-6, 3-2 Big Ten) and Penn State (12-6, 2-3 Big Ten) meet Friday evening at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pa. The matchup is a rare Friday night conference game for the Huskers.
The game is the 16th meeting between Nebraska and Penn State. The Nittany Lions hold an 8-7 advantage in series history. Before the Huskers joined the Big Ten, the two programs had only met three times. That included a home-and-home series in 1980 and 1981, as well as a meeting in the second round of the 1995 NIT.
In Big Ten play, Nebraska and Penn State have split their 12 meetings. The Huskers hold a 6-4 advantage during the regular season and an 0-2 record in the Big Ten Tournament.
The matchup on Friday is the first of two meetings this season for the Huskers and Nittany Lions. They will play again on Sunday, Feb. 25.
Nebraska comes into the matchup with Penn State having won five of its last six games. The Huskers’ most recent win over Wisconsin Tuesday night, 63-59. Nebraska held the Badgers to 42 percent shooting. It was the first regular-season win for the Huskers over the Badgers since 2014.
James Palmer Jr. led Nebraska with 18 points. Jordy Tshimanga and Thomas Allen also had strong performances, with Tshimanga scoring 7 of his season-high 9 points in the second half. He also added 6 rebounds. As for Allen, he had 8 points off the bench.
However, Nebraska will be without Tshimanga Friday night as his future with the Huskers remains unclear. The sophomore did not travel with Nebraska to Penn State, and more should be known in the coming days, according to the Lincoln Journal Star’s Steven M. Sipple.
“According to a source, Tshimanga apparently feels frustration about the way his season’s going,” Sipple wrote. “The coaching staff is trying to sort out the situation with the player, and his status likely will be determined within a few days,” the source said.
Without Tshimanga, Nebraska will need to rely even more on its depth against Penn State. The Nittany Lions return home after a 74-70 loss to Indiana on the road on Tuesday. Despite the loss, Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens combined for 48 points, and Mike Watkins had 10 points and 12 rebounds.
Carr is one of the best guards in the Big Ten and is averaging 18.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. Penn State also has five players averaging in double figures.
The Nittany Lions have proved to be difficult to beat at home. Penn State is 9-2 on its own floor, with the two losses coming by only 1 point.
