Nebraska (7-5) begins the homestretch of non-conference play looking to bounce back from a one-point loss to Kansas Saturday night. In that game, Nebraska led 72-70 on James Palmer's basket with 41.3 seconds left, but Svi Mykhailiuk's 3-pointer gave the Jayhawks the lead for good. Nebraska had two chances in the final 10 seconds to earn the go-head basket, but were unable to get the game winner against KU.

The loss overshadowed a breakout performance by freshman guard Thomas Allen, who came off the bench to score 13 points against the Jayhawks. Allen hit 5-of-7 shots from the field, including a trio of 3-pointers, in just 14 minutes of action. James Palmer Jr. also continued his string of double-figure efforts, leading the Huskers with 14 points while snaring a career-high eight rebounds.
Palmer, in his first season at Nebraska, leads a balanced Husker attack at 14.2 points per game while reaching double figures in each of the last eight contests.

UTSA comes into Wednesday's game on a two-game win streak following a 28-point win over Bethany on Saturday. The Roadrunners rank 20th nationally in scoring offense, putting up 86.6 points per game, and have six players averaging at least eight points per game. The Roadrunners are coached by former Kansas State star Steve Henson, who was an assistant to Lon Kruger at Oklahoma and UNLV.
