Nebraska (9-7, 1-4 Big Ten) comes of its best effort in conference play, a 70-58 win over Penn State Wednesday evening. The Huskers shot 55 percent from the floor - their highest effort since November - and placed four players in double figures, as Bo Spencer's 19 points led a balanced attack.
Nebraska's been much crisper on offense the last two games following the return of Jorge Brian Diaz and Dylan Talley from injuries. The Huskers have shot 50 percent in each of the last two contests, the first time this year Nebraska has shot better than 50 percent in consecutive games this season. That is a stark contrast from the 32.5 percent the Huskers shot in their first three conference efforts.
The Huskers' offensive attack will get one of its stiffest tests of the season on Sunday, as they face a Wisconsin squad that is coming off a 67-62 win at Purdue on Thursday night to snap a three-game losing streak. The Badgers (13-5, 2-3 Big Ten) lead the nation in scoring defense, allowing 48.7 points per game, while opponents are shooting just 26 percent from 3-point range. Wisconsin is led by All-America point guard Jordan Taylor, who averages 13.5 points and 4.5 assists per game UW looks to snap a two-game home losing streak in the Kohl Center, as the Badgers lost to both Iowa and Michigan State at home in league play.
The two teams met on Dec. 27 in the Big Ten opener in Lincoln, as Ryan Evans scored a career-high 22 points in a 64-40 Badger win. UW shot 11-of-21 from 3-point range, while holding Nebraska to 31 percent.
