    Scouting Washington State
    Nebraska opens play in the South Point Shootout by taking on a familiar non-conference foe in Washington State. The Huskers and Cougars will be meeting for the seventh time in 14 seasons, but it will be the first-ever meeting for the two teams on a neutral court.
     
    Nebraska leads the all-time series with Washington State 5-1, including an 82-61 win in the last meeting between the two schools on Nov. 19, 2014 in Pullman. The Cougars handed the Huskers their only loss in the series with a 76-72 decision on Nov. 30, 2013. It was also the first home loss for Nebraska in Pinnacle Bank Arena. Nebraska is 3-0 against WSU in Pullman and 2-1 against the Cougars in Lincoln.
     
    Washington State heads to Las Vegas with a 3-1 mark that includes lopsided wins over Loyola Marymount (92-45) and San Francisco (73-35) sandwiched around a solid victory over Saint Mary’s (85-69). The Cougars are coming off a 79-72 overtime loss to Oklahoma State
     
    The Cougars carry a mix of size and experience along with talent and depth up and down their roster. Sophomore Borislava Hristova, a 6-0 forward leads WSU with 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. Louise Brown, a 6-3 junior forward has added 10.0 points and a team-leading 8.8 rebounds per game.
    Ivana Kmetovska, a 6-3 senior forward completes an all-international starting front line by averaging 8.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
     
    As a team, Washington State is averaging 80.5 points through four contests, while holding opponents to just 57.0 points per game. The Cougars have been plus-7.8 (50.8-43.0) on the boards and own a whopping plus-9.3 team turnover margin. WSU is shooting 39.9 percent from the field and 33 percent (29-88) from three-point range while hitting just 60.2 percent of its free throws.
     
    Jessica Shepard continues to average a double-double for the Huskers with team-leading averages of 17.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game.
     
    Shepard leads Nebraska in three-point field goals made (7) and three-point field goal percentage (.538),
     
    Nebraska freshman Nicea Eliely ranks second on the team in scoring (8.0 ppg), third in rebounding (5.5 rpg), first in assists (3.5 apg) and first in steals (2.3 spg) through the first four games of her collegiate career.
     
    Freshman guard Hannah Whitish produced double digits off the bench for the second straight game with 10 points in NU’s win over Omaha
     
    BEAT THE COUGARS!
