Ok it's time to move on to the turtles, what do you guys have.

A pedestrian take I have here.  Hard to imagine them losing twice this early in the conf. season, esp. at home.  But Rutgers proved they are not invincible by any means.  Keep working to get better, keep fighting, and keep believing ladies!!  😎

this is a game where second chance points could be huge. maryland is 2nd in the big ten in offensive rebounding. huskers are 11th in defensive rebounds. huskers tied for last place in scoring defense (w/penn st) 70.4ppg while maryland is 2nd allowing 55.4ppg. block out.

husker scoring droughts will have to be very limited/short in nature---maryland can score and will most likely exploit those situations. 


i watched a good chunk of maryland-rutgers matchup. combination of rutgers being able to score (which hasn't really been the norm for them) and being able to go toe to toe in rebounding with maryland provided the perfect brew for an upset. (actually, rutgers led 19-8 on the offensive boards and 38-28 overall).

Here's some information on the game taken from the game page @ Huskers.com:



• The Huskers enter Tuesday’s game looking to rebound from a hard-fought 77-71 loss at No. 19 Iowa last Thursday in Iowa City. Freshman Leigha Brown led the Huskers in scoring for the second straight game by putting up a career-high 20 points off the bench for the Big Red.
• In conference games, Brown, the Big Ten Freshman of the Week, has the highest scoring average of any Big Ten freshman @16.7 ppg (10.4 ppg for the season).
• However, Brown is not the top freshman scorer for the Huskers on the season. That honor belongs to Sam Haiby. The 5-9 guard from Moorhead, Minn., is averaging a team-best 10.7 points per game off the bench. She is averaging 9.7 points per game in Big Ten play to rank sixth among Big Ten freshmen in league play.
• Tuesday’s game will feature five of the Big Ten’s top-11 scoring freshmen, including Maryland’s Taylor Mikesell (1st, 14.7 ppg) and Shakira Austin (8th, 9.0 ppg), along with Nebraska’s Sam Haiby (6th, 10.7 ppg), Leigha Brown (7th, 10.4 ppg) and Ashtyn Veerbeek (11th, 8.0 ppg).
• The game will also have two of the Big Ten’s most accurate three-point shooters in NU’s Taylor Kissinger (1st, .477, 31-65) and Maryland’s Taylor Mikesell (3rd, .413, 43-104). Mikesell leads the Big Ten in threes per game (3.0), while Kissinger ranks fourth (2.2 pg).
• Maryland’s Austin (1st, 11.1 rpg) and Nebraska’s Veerbeek (4th, 6.5 rpg) are among the Big Ten’s top freshman rebounders and both currently lead their teams on the glass.
• Nebraska has eight players averaging 7.8 or more points per game and nine players averaging double-figure minutes. Returning Nebraska starters Maddie Simon, Nicea Eliely and Hannah Whitish are all averaging 8.6 points per game.

Scouting the No. 9 Maryland Terrapins
• Coach Brenda Frese is aiming for her 500th career win in her 20th season as a college head coach.
• Maryland went 11-0 in non-conference play, but suffered a 73-65 home loss to Rutgers on New Year’s Eve. The Terps have used a seven-player rotation early in conference play.
• Maryland’s starting five features three experienced juniors in Kaila Charles (16.8 ppg, 6.4 rpg), Stephanie Jones (13.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg) and Blair Watson (8.0 ppg, 3.6 rpg).
• Charles is a 6-1 wing averaging 20.7 points in Big Ten play.
• Jones, a 6-2 forward, has two double-doubles this season and has scored in double figures 11 times.
• Watson is a 6-0 guard returning from a knee injury that ended her sophomore season for Maryland.
• The Terps have two impact freshman starters in guard Taylor Mikesell (14.7 ppg, 3.6 rpg) and 6-5 forward Shakira Austin (9.0 ppg, 11.1 rpg).
• Austin ranks second in the Big Ten with 41 blocks on the year. She has averaged 3.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in Big Ten play.
• Mikesell, a 5-11 guard, has knocked down 43-of-104 threes (.413) this season. She has added 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
• Maryland’s lone senior, Brianna Fraser, is averaging 8.0 points and 5.4 rebounds off the bench.
• Channise Lewis, a 5-8 sophomore, is averaging 3.1 points and a team-best 5.1 assists this season.

• As a team, Maryland is averaging 77.0 points per game while allowing just 55.4 points per contest. The Terps own a plus-14.5 team rebound margin, but a minus-0.4 turnover margin. Maryland is shooting 46.4 percent from the field, including an impressive 35.6 percent from three-point range and 71.8 percent at the free throw line.
• Prior to their 73-65 loss to Rutgers the Terps owned a plus-17 rebound margin (48.8-31.8) but were out-rebounded by the Scarlet Knights, 38-28, including 19 offensive boards by Rutgers.

Good Find, Whoop!   :thumbsup:    View from the 'Far Side!   :Stickouttongue:  :Lol:



Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-7, 2-1 Big Ten)
Depth. So far this season, the Huskers haven’t had too many standout players. Instead, the offense has been an ensemble act, and contributions have come in from all over the court and bench. Eight players have averaged at least 17.5 minutes and 7.8 points, and on any given night a single player could break out and take over the game.
Defense. Nebraska is a relatively young team, currently led by a pair of freshman. And as is often the case with younger squads, defense could be tough in the early stages of the season. That’s been the case thus far, as the Huskers allow 70.4 points per game to opponents, second worst in the Big Ten and 290th in the nation out of 349 Division I teams.
Three things to watch
1. Can Maryland get back on track? The Terrapins have won two of their past three games, so the sky isn’t falling just yet. But as conference play has started, Maryland has not looked the part of a top-five team. In fact, they’ve looked average at best over the past two weeks. This is a good chance to get back on track, but then again, so was Saturday’s home game against the Buckeyes.
2. What’s wrong with Shakira Austin? After four Big Ten Freshman of the Week awards through the first half-dozen weeks of the season, it seemed as though Maryland women’s basketball had the new face of its program. And while we’ll reserve judgement on a freshman for a three-game stretch, it hasn’t been good as of late. Over the past two weeks, Austin has averaged 3.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in just 16.3 minutes per outing.
3. Who steps up for Nebraska? As mentioned previously, the Huskers have eight players scoring often. And while that formula bodes well over the course of the season, to knock off a top team like Maryland, someone is going to have to step up in a big way to lead the Huskers to victory. That could be Haiby or Brown or anyone, and we’ll have to see who shoulders the weight in a big spot.

Halftime Stats: Husker Ladies shooting has cooled down :Redface:, not able to finish at the rim and not getting calls when fouled. Several empty possessions. They'll have to pick up the shooting if they are going to come out on Top! :Cheer2:

Egregious call when they failed to call the over the back foul  on the rebound resulting in MD burying a Trey.  Make-up call was allowing Maddie to travel (& missed shot by Maddie at the other end) except MD gets to keep the Trey that they made off the missed call.  :mad:
