Nebraska (11-10, 3-7 Big Ten) has to rebound quickly following an 84-74 loss at Northwestern on Thursday night. Nebraska, which was leading the Big Ten in 3-point defense in league play, surrendered a season-high 14 3-pointers to the Wildcats, including 10 in the first half as Northwestern built a 41-26 halftime lead.
Nebraska rallied behind Bo Spencer, who scored 20 of his team-high 24 points in the second half, as the Huskers cut the lead to 54-53 with 10:38 left and was within three points, at 75-72, with 1:33 left before the Wildcats put the game away. Spencer led three Huskers in double figures with his sixth 20-point game of the year.
Minnesota (16-7, 4-6 Big Ten) also looks to get back on the winning track following a 63-59 loss at Iowa on Wednesday night. In that game, the Gophers fell behind early, only to take a 10-point second-half lead before Iowa came back in the final minutes. Ralph Sampson III led three Gophers in double figures with 13 points, while Julian Welch and Austin Hollins, added 12 and 11, respectively.
