Nebraska takes a 5-3 Big Ten record on the road to 22nd ranked Ohio State. The Buckeyes are 8-0 in the league race under first year coach Chris Holtman.
“He has done a great job with them”, said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. “They don’t beat themselves. They are strong across the board and they are excellent defensively.”
Nebraska heads to Columbus having won seven of its last nine games following a 72-52 win over No. 23 Michigan last Thursday. The Huskers held Michigan to 37.5 percent shooting, including just 4-of-18 from 3-point range. James Palmer Jr. had 19 points to pace four Huskers in double figures, as the Huskers shot 55 percent from the field in snapping a 10-game losing streak to Michigan that predated NU’s Big Ten days.
The Huskers are 14-7 overall. The Buckeyes are 17-4 record following a 67-49 win over Minnesota on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
Tipoff at Value City Arena is set for shortly after 7:00p.m. The game will be televised nationally on BTN.
