Nebraska returns home for the Big Ten home opener Tuesday night, as the Huskers welcome No. 14 Minnesota to Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The Huskers (6-3, 0-1 Big Ten) look to bounce back after falling to a red-hot Michigan State team in their Big Ten opener. Nebraska was unable to get untracked offensively against the No. 3 Spartans, shooting just 27.4 percent from the field. James Palmer Jr. was the only Husker to finish in double figures, as he finished with 15 points
The Huskers will face their second ranked opponent in three days, as the No. 14 Golden Gophers are 8-1 on the season following an 89-67 win over Rutgers on Sunday. Nate Mason led four Minnesota players in double figures with 26 points and seven assists, while the Golden Gophers held Rutgers to 32 percent shooting.
Minnesota, which returned four starters from an NCAA Tournament team, leads the Big Ten in scoring at 89.4 points per game and are led by junior forward Jordan Murphy, who leads the Big Ten in both scoring (21.4 ppg) and rebounding (12.9 rpg).
