The No. 23 Nebraska women’s basketball team closes Big Ten regular-season road action when the Huskers meet Michigan State for the first time in school history on Thursday in East Lansing, MI. The Huskers could be without their third leading scorer and second highest rebounder in freshman Emily Cady, who tore cartilage in her left knee in Sunday’s win over Wisconsin. Listed as day to day, NU could start junior Meghin Williams.
Nebraska and Michigan State enter the game as two parts of a four-way tie for third with 9-5 conference records. Purdue and Iowa also own 9-5 marks, and the Huskers are 3-0 against those two Big Ten schools. Michigan State is 1-2 against the Boilermakers and Hawkeyes, but is coming off a 67-52 overtime win over Purdue in East Lansing on Sunday.
