Nebraska (10-8, 2-5 Big Ten) comes off its best performance of the season, rallying from a 13-point second-half deficit to stun No. 11 Indiana, 70-69, on Wednesday evening. Bo Spencer's 23 points led four Huskers in double figures, while Jorge Brian Diaz hit two free throws with 11 seconds left for the winning margin.
The Huskers are finishing a grueling stretch to open their inaugural Big Ten campaign, as five of NU's first eight games were against ranked teams while two of the other matchups were against teams that have been ranked this month.
The stretch concludes with a Buckeye squad which has been off since an 80-63 win over then No. 7 Indiana on Sunday. The Buckeyes (16-3, 4-2 Big Ten) feature one of the nation's premier players in forward Jared Sullinger, as the first-team All-American averages 17.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game to pace three OSU players who average in double figures.
