The Nebraska men's basketball team looks for its fourth straight win on Friday night, as the Huskers return home to face South Carolina State in the final non-conference matchup of the season.

Tipoff between the Huskers and Bulldogs is set for 6:30 p.m. and tickets are available for the matchup by visiting Huskers.com/Tickets, calling 800-8-BIGRED during business hours (Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) or at PBA beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday. The game will be carried on the Huskers Radio Network and streamed on B1G+ with Jessica Coody and Erick Strickland on the call.

Nebraska (10-2) comes off a nine-day break following an 83-75 win over North Dakota on Dec. 20. Nebraska rallied from a 14-point second-half deficit by scoring 51 points and shooting 58 percent from the floor in the final 20 minutes. C.J. Wilcher led six Huskers in double figures with a season-high 16-point effort, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range, while Juwan Gary posted his second straight double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Wilcher has given the Huskers scoring punch off the bench in recent weeks, averaging 9.0 ppg on 48 percent shooting over the last four games. He is also shooting 50 percent from 3-point range in that span. His 16-point outburst was not only a season best, but also the fourth time this season that a Husker reserve led the team in scoring.  

A win over South Carolina State on Friday will cap one of the most successful non-conference slates in school history. NU has finished non-conference play with one loss only four times (10-1, 2018-19; 10-1, 2003-04; 12-1, 1991-92; 11-1, 1977-78) since World War II. 

South Carolina State (4-10) begins a two-game road trip on Friday and comes off a 101-84 win over Brewton-Parker on Dec. 22. The Bulldogs, who are playing their 10th road game of the season, are led by Davion Everett, who averages 10.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game.

Numbers to Know

1.44 -Nebraska's assist-to-turnover ratio this season, which is sixth in the Big Ten as of Dec. 27. NU's best assist-to-turnover ratio in the last decade is 1.32, set in the 2018-19 season. That season, NU had 9.96 turnovers per game, the lowest average since assists were tracked in 1978-79.

2 - Nebraska matched a school record with two turnovers in the win over Duquesne on Nov. 22, matching a record originally set in 2013. As of Dec. 28, it ties for the lowest total by a power conference team in 2023-24.

2 - Number of power conference players averaging at least 10 points, nine rebounds and three assists per game this season as of Dec. 27 - Nebraska's Rienk Mast and Duke's Kyle Filipowski. Only six Division I players are averaging those marks in 2023-24.

4 - The 14-point deficit against North Dakota was NU's largest comeback of the season and fourth time under Fred Hoiberg that Nebraska has overcome a double-digit deficit. It was also NU's largest comeback vs. a non-conference foe since the 2014-15 season. 

6 - Nebraska placed a season-high six Huskers in double figures in the win over North Dakota on Dec. 20.  The group did not include Rienk Mast, who did not play in the win because of surgery two days earlier. 

8.8 - NU ranks second in the Big Ten with 8.8 3-pointers per game as of Dec. 27.  NU has averaged more than 8.0 3-pointers/game just twice in program history (2001-02 and 2020-21).

11 - Juwan Gary's 11 offensive rebounds against Kansas State on Dec. 17 were the most by a power conference player in 2023-24 as of Dec. 27. According to Sports Reference, only two power conference players - Kentucky's Oscar Tshiebwe (vs. Duke in 2021) and Washington's Nate Roberts (vs. Northern Illinois in 2021) - have grabbed more offensive boards in a game over the last five seasons.

13.5 - Nebraska leads the Big Ten and ranks 11th nationally in fewest fouls per game (13.5) entering this week's action. NU also ranked in the top 20 nationally in that category in 2022-23 (14.1, 16th).

Worth Noting 

  • Nebraska's 10-2 record matches NU's best 12-game mark since opening the 1994-95 season with an 11-1 mark in its first 12 contests. The Huskers were also 10-2 on four other occasions (2003-04, 2007-08, 2010-11 and 2018-19) since 2003-04. Nebraska opened the season with seven straight wins, marking just the fifth time in program history that Nebraska opened the season with seven straight wins.
  • Nebraska enters the South Carolina State game averaging 76.5 points per game. It is NU's highest points per game average since averaging 80.2 points per game in the 1995-96 season.
  • Juwan Gary has posted back-to-back double-doubles entering Friday's game with South Carolina State. The last Husker with three straight double-doubles is Isaiah Roby from Feb. 10-18, 2018. Roby is the only Husker to post three straight double-doubles in the Big Ten era (2011-12 to present).
  • After scoring 83 points against North Dakota, Nebraska is now 21-4 under Hoiberg when scoring at least 80 points, including 16-1 over the last three seasons. The only loss was a 104-100 quadruple overtime game at North Carolina State on Dec. 1, 2021. NU has won its last 14 games when reaching the 80-point plateau.
  • Nebraska held Kansas State to 46 points in holding the Wildcats to its fewest points since the 2020-01 and third-fewest total at home since Bramlage Coliseum opened in 1988.  It marked the fewest points NU allowed on the road since joining the Big Ten and was only the second time NU had held an opponent under 50 points on the road since the 2011-12 season. Nebraska allowed just 0.68 points per possession, its lowest total in the Big Ten era.
  • One strength of the Huskers has been getting to the free throw line. NU has shot more free throws in 10 of 12 games in 2023-24 and its +67 differential ranks fourth in the Big Ten as of Dec. 28.  After getting to the line a season-low four times at Kansas State on Dec. 17, NU went 14-of-19 from the line against North Dakota in its last contest.
  • Nebraska enters Friday's game ranked fourth in the Big Ten in free throw shooting at 74.2 percent.  While it is still early in the season, it is on pace to be one of NU's highest season percentages. NU has not shot over 74 percent from the foul line since the 2011-12 season when NU shot a school-record 76.6 percent. 
  • Over the last seven games, Nebraska is shooting 82.2 percent (97-of-118) from the charity stripe, including the two best totals in Hoiberg's five seasons.  NU's 19-of-20 effort against Cal State Fullerton on Nov. 26 was its best percentage (min. 20 att.) since going 20-of-21 (.952) against Minnesota on Nov. 26, 1995.
  • The Huskers are 16-5 over the last 21 games dating back to Feb. 1, 2023. A big reason for that is NU's offense, as NU has averaged 75.5 ppg on 46 percent shooting in that stretch.  NU posted its seventh 80-point game of the season against North Dakota. In the previous four seasons, NU had just 14 games of 80 or more points.
  • Nebraska won its first seven games by 10 or more points. It was just the second time in over 100 years - the other was from Dec. 3-30, 1990 - that the Huskers won seven straight games by double figures.
  • Nebraska's bench has provided a spark, averaging 22.3 points per game in the first 11 contests. The Huskers' leading scorer has come from the bench four times (Hoiberg-Lindenwood; Wilcher-Rider and North Dakota; Gary-Stony Brook) and NU has had 10 double-figure efforts from its bench in 2023-24.  Juwan Gary's 20-point effort against Duquesne on Nov. 22 marked the seventh time under Fred Hoiberg that NU had a player score at least 20 points off the bench.
  • C.J. Wilcher graduated earlier this month with a degree in child, youth & family studies but will go through graduation ceremonies during the spring. Wilcher, who began his collegiate career at Xavier before transferring to Nebraska before the 2021-22 season, is a three-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Roll member and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2023. He will be the fifth college graduate on the 2023-24 Husker roster, joining Josiah Allick, Jarron Coleman, Rienk Mast and Brice Williams.

About South Carolina State
South Carolina State comes to Lincoln with a 4-10 record following a 101-84 win over Brewton-Parker on Dec. 22. In that game, Davion Everett came off the bench for the first time this season and had 21 points and 12 rebounds in 24 minutes of work. He was one of four double-figure scorers from the bench in the win, as SCSU shot 50 percent in the second half en route to outscoring Brewton-Parker 57-40 in the final 20 minutes. 

Erik Martin is in his second season in charge of the Bulldog program after serving as an assistant to Bob Huggins for 16 seasons at West Virginia and one season at Kansas State. Martin played collegiately at both TCU and Cincinnati, where he helped the Bearcats to a Final Four appearance in 1992.

The Bulldogs, who wrap up non-conference action with a trip to Oklahoma State on Dec. 31, have been tested during the 2023-24 season. The Bulldogs have faced South Florida, Tulsa, Missouri, and Pittsburgh during non-conference action. Everett leads the Bulldogs in both scoring (10.4 ppg) and rebounding (7.0 rpg), as he grabs an average of 3.5 offensive boards per game. SCSU has nine players averaging at least five points per game and 11 players averaging double-figure minutes. Wilson Dubinsky is the team's top 3-point threat with 30 of the team's 69 3-pointers and is shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc, as he averages 8.6 points per game.

Series History: Nebraska owns a 2-0 record against South Carolina State, but the programs have not met since an 83-57 Husker win on Nov. 17, 2013. The other meeting came during the 2008-09 season when the Huskers downed the Bulldogs, 77-63. NU is 14-0 all-time against the current members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC).

Last Time Out
Nebraska put six players in double figures and used a strong second-half surge to fight off North Dakota, 83-75, on Dec. 20. 

The Huskers overcame a 14-point second-half deficit by shooting 58 percent from the floor after halftime en route to out-scoring North Dakota, 51-33, in the final 20 minutes. The 10-2 start marks NU’s best 12-game start since the 2018-19 campaign.

C.J. Wilcher led six Huskers in double figures with 16 points off the bench, including four 3-pointers, while Jamarques Lawrence and Keisei Tominaga had 14 markers apiece.  Tominaga had seven of his 11 second-half points in a 14-1 run that saw the Huskers nearly completely erase a 46-32 deficit in the first five minutes of the second half. The Huskers had runs of 12-0 and 9-0 in the first nine minutes after halftime, as the Huskers eventually built a 57-51 lead.

North Dakota stayed within striking distance and was within 68-67 after B.J. Omot’s basket with 4:33 left before Lawrence took over. The sophomore had eight of his 14 points in a 11-2 spurt that gave the Huskers a 10-point lead with 46 seconds left to finally subdue the Fighting Hawks.

Juwan Gary posted his second straight double-double with 12 points and 12 boards, while Brice Williams and Josiah Allick added 12 and 10 points, respectively.

NCAA NET No. 21 Nebraska had its five-game winning streak snapped before the holiday break with a 69-52 loss at NET No. 43 Kansas. Alexis Markowski notched her Big Ten-leading seventh double-double of the season with game highs of 19 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Huskers. The two-time Lisa Leslie Award candidate has scored in double figures in 12 straight games, crossing the 1,000-point career mark in a win over Southern (Dec. 17). She will be honored in a pregame presentation on Sunday. Markowski leads the Big Ten in rebounding (9.8) and ranks sixth in scoring (17.3 ppg).

Two-time Ann Meyers-Drysdale Award candidate Jaz Shelley has added 13.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and team bests of 4.7 assists and 1.6 steals this season. The 5-9 guard from Moe (pronounced MOE-ee), Australia, is the first Husker in history to record multiple career triple-doubles after getting 19 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in a win over UNCW (Dec. 5). Shelley ranks fourth on Nebraska’s career three-point list with 185. She scored a game-high 29 points and hit 6-of-10 threes in a 90-67 victory at No. 21 Maryland last season (Dec. 4, 2022) - NU’s only win over the Terps in 17 meetings.

Three-time Big Ten Freshman-of-the-Week Natalie Potts is averaging 10.8 points and 5.6 rebounds. The two-time Missouri MaxPreps High School Player of the Year out of Incarnate Word Academy has hit 75.4 percent (46-61) of her two-point attempts. 

Darian White, a four-year starter and three-time All-Big Sky performer at Montana State before transferring to Nebraska as a graduate student, gives Nebraska another potent weapon. The 5-6 guard is averaging 9.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists, which ranks 10th in the Big Ten.

Head Coach: Brenda Frese (Arizona, 1993)
22nd Season at Maryland (572-150); 26th Season Overall (628-180)

Scouting the Maryland Terrapins
Coach Brenda Frese brings NCAA NET No. 39 Maryland to Lincoln riding a seven-game winning streak after running to a 78-55 win over James Madison in College Park (Dec. 20) before breaking for the holidays. The Terrapins have won all seven games by nine or more points, including a 13-point victory over Northwestern (71-58) to open Big Ten play in College Park (Dec. 10).
 
Sunday’s game will mark the first time in 18 meetings with Maryland that the Terrapins will be unranked in the Associated Press Top 25.
 
While the Terps are not currently in the polls, they would be 29th in the WBCA/USA Today rankings.
 
More importantly, Maryland is still one of the Big Ten’s most explosive and athletic teams, averaging 81.7 points per game. The Terps also lead the Big Ten in total rebounds at 43.8 boards per contest.
 
All-Big Ten junior Shyanne Sellers leads Maryland in every major statistical category. The 6-2 guard ranks fifth in the Big Ten in scoring (17.8 ppg), 15th in rebounding (6.3 rpg), fifth in assists (5.4 apg), sixth in steals (2.1 spg) and 16th in blocks (0.8 bpg). She is shooting 39.4 percent (13-33) from three-point range and 85.7 percent (66-77) from the free throw line. Sellers was the 2022 Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year as a freshman before earning first-team All-Big Ten honors from the conference media as a sophomore. She had 20 points and 11 rebounds in No. 11 Maryland’s 69-54 win over Nebraska in Lincoln last season. Sellers had 21 points and eight boards in No. 20 Maryland’s 90-67 loss to the Huskers in College Park. She is coming off a 29-point, eight-rebound, six-assist effort in a win over James Madison (Dec. 20).
 
Graduate Brinae Alexander is the only other Terp to start all 12 games alongside Sellers. The 6-0 guard is averaging 9.9 points and 3.8 rebounds while leading Maryland with 31 three-pointers (.413). She averaged 9.0 points per game in her first season with the Terps last year. Alexander spent her first four seasons at Vanderbilt. The 2019 SEC All-Freshman selection averaged 15.2 points per game for the Commodores as a senior in 2021-22. She had 14 points and hit a trio of threes against the Huskers in the Terrapin loss last season.
 
Another graduate, Faith Masonius has moved into the starting lineup recently. The 6-1 guard/forward is averaging 6.9 points and 3.8 boards, while ranking second on the team with 2.8 assists. She started both games against Nebraska last year and averaged 8.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in the series split with the Huskers.
 
Redshirt junior Allie Kubek has also taken on a starting role for the Terps. The 6-2 forward is averaging 10.2 points and 4.8 rebounds this season, after missing the entire 2022-23 season with an ACL injury suffered in preseason. Kubek was a third-team All-Colonial Athletic Association player as a sophomore at Towson in 2021-22, averaging 14.6 points and 6.2 rebounds. She scored 17 points against her old team on Dec. 12, which followed another 17-point effort in a Big Ten win over Northwestern (Dec. 10).
 
Bri McDaniel rounds out Maryland’s probable starting five. The 5-10 sophomore ranks second among the Terrapins in scoring with 11.4 points per game. She also ranks second on the team in steals (20) and third in assists (27). Over the last five games as a starter, McDaniel is averaging 13.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists, including 15 points and nine rebounds last time out in the win over JMU.
 
Jakia Brown-Turner started the first 11 games for Maryland before missing the James Madison game. The 6-0 graduate and NC State transfer is averaging 10.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game on the season. As a sophomore for the Wolfpack in 2020-21, Brown-Turner was an AP honorable-mention All-American, averaging 13.5 points and 5.0 rebounds to earn first-team All-ACC honors.
 
Freshmen Riley Nelson (5.3 ppg, 1.6 rpg) and Emily Fisher (3.1 ppg, 4.1 rpg) are the only Terps who have come off the bench for all 12 games.
 
Graduate guard Lavender Briggs, who has battled lower body injuries during her career, has missed the last five games for the Terps but was hopeful for a return after the holiday break. Briggs has averaged 6.0 points and 5.3 rebounds this season in seven starts. Last season she averaged 5.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in two games with the Huskers.
 
Nebraska vs. Maryland Series History
Maryland leads the all-time series with Nebraska 16-1, including a 69-54 win over the Huskers in the last meeting in Lincoln (Jan. 22, 2023). Shyanne Sellers led the No. 11 Terrapins with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Diamond Miller pitched in 18 big points.
 
Nebraska won the last meeting at Maryland, a 90-67 victory at the Xfinity Center in College Park, Md. (Dec. 4, 2022).
 
Jaz Shelley led the Huskers with 29 points on 6-of-10 three-point shooting while adding five assists in the win over the Terps. Isabelle Bourne added 18 points on 4-of-5 shooting from long range. Alexis Markowski pitched in 14 points, while Allison Weidner contributed her first career double-double with 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds. Sellers led Maryland with 21 points and eight rebounds, while Miller added 13.
 
Maryland has been ranked in the AP Top 20 in all 17 of the previous meetings with the lowest ranking coming at No. 20 (twice, 2019-20 and 2022-23).
 
The Terps have been ranked in the top 15 in either the AP or Coaches poll entering 14 of the previous 17 meetings, including Maryland’s 80-65 win at College Park (Feb. 6, 2022). 
 
The Terrapins have been ranked in the top 10 in eight of the 17 previous meetings, including an 83-73 Maryland win over the Huskers at the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis (March 11, 2021). • Nebraska took No. 13 Maryland to the wire at the Xfinity Center in College Park before falling 77-75 (Feb. 25, 2018). The Huskers trailed by 14 points in the third quarter before rallying to take a 75-74 lead with 48 seconds left. A Hannah Whitish three-pointer from the right wing in the closing seconds caught back iron and caromed off as Maryland survived. 
 
Nebraska’s first meeting with Maryland came in the 2008 NCAA Tournament second round in College Park - a 76-64 Maryland win. NU is 1-14 against the Terps as Big Ten foes.
 
Sunday’s game will be NU’s 16th against the Terps as conference foes - the most by the Huskers against any league team from the Eastern Time Zone (Maryland, Rutgers, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana, Ohio State) since Maryland joined the conference in 2014-15.
 
Nebraska has made seven trips to the Xfinity Center in league play, and Maryland is making its seventh trip to Pinnacle Bank Arena. Lincoln is 1,205 miles from College Park.
 
Since Maryland entered the league (2014-15), Michigan State has only appeared on the court at Pinnacle Bank Arena four times, and the Huskers have played the Spartans 12 times. Lincoln is 727 miles from East Lansing. NU is 11-6 all-time against Michigan State and 6-0 in Lincoln.
