Penn State Nittany Lions
After getting a big win over Ohio State, Penn State has since dropped two straight to Purdue and Michigan. What a better way to turn things around than to get the season sweep of a conference foe.
One of the surprises of the BIG 10 has been Penn State where they rank 49th in offensive efficiency and 18th in defensive efficiency. On the road their offense ranks 78th in PPG, 17th in FG%, and 14th in 3PT%; numbers you never really see for a Penn State basketball team.
On the defensive Side they rank 43rd in PPG and 59th RPG.
Penn State is fighting for a NCAA tourney birth, and a win over Nebraska will greatly help their case of making it. They will be playing without their top rebounder in Mike Watkins who is averaging 8.9 RPG and 12.1 PPG.
It will be an uphill battle in a hostile environment.
Nebraska has won seven of their last eight matchups as they head into Senior Day with revenge on their minds. They lost by two to Penn State earlier this year.
James Palmer Jr. leads this Nebraska squad where he is averaging 17.6 PPG and 4.5 RPG. He helps run the 76th most efficient offense and 46th most efficient defense in the nation.
Nebraska has been money at home going 16-2 and 12-4 ATS, and on Senior Day they will want to send the home crowd home with a win.
Speaking of that home crowd, they are one of the reasons opponents are only shooting 65% from the free throw line.
