Penn State found a way to enter a tournament on the right path, posting a 66-61 comeback win at Maryland on Sunday to close out the regular season. PSU has wins in three of their last four.
Nebraska has consistently been the worst team in the Big Ten this season, but they put together a rare two game win streak at the end of February/ start of March. 6 of Nebraska’s 7 wins came on their own floor though.
Nebraska has a lot of problems, but their biggest one is their defense, which was last in the Big Ten in giving up 74.3 points/game.
Penn State doesn’t have the most explosive offense out there, but they did go for 82+ in two of their final four games in the regular season. One of those was an 86-83 win over Nebraska on February 23rd.
Nebraska gave up a ton of points to Penn State in their last meeting, but it was still a 3-point game when the Cornhuskers were +6.5 underdogs. Nebraska actually won 62-61 at Penn State on February 14th as +11 point underdogs.
The lone road win of the season for Fred Hoiberg’s team came against these Nittany Lions. That has to give the team some confidence, especially with some new scoring threats stepping up as of late.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State will probably be glad not to see Nebraska’s leading scorer Teddy Allen (16.4) who has left the program to focus on the next step in his hoops career. Allen had 41 points vs. PSU on February 23rd.
One would think the Nittany Lions defense would be licking their chops to face the Huskers without Allen, but Kobe Webster has averaged 20ppg the last two and Trey McGowens had 15/5/6 on Sunday.
Nebraska is here to fight, and Penn State has a 19 point win over Minnesota and a tough road win at Maryland on their resume for the last two. PSU also counters with a couple great scorers of their own.
Myreon Jones puts up 15.5 ppg, and torched the Nebraska defense for 29 points in their most recent game. Izaiah Brockington averages over a dozen as well, but has had his struggles over the last three.

Free Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Penn State Nittany Lions NCAAB Prediction:
The loss of Teddy Allen hurts Nebraska, but they’ve also beat Rutgers and lost by 1 to Northwestern over the three games that he’s been absent (also lost 102-64 to Iowa). The Cornhuskers might’ve been a trendy upset pick if he played.
Penn State is also very inconsistent though, and these teams have matched up well with each other this season. Nebraska has had three games to get used to Allen’s departure, which does help them immensely.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Nebraska +6.5
The Cornhuskers can sneak in under this lofty number.
