    The Skinny

    Ohio put up 99 against DePaul and 49 against GW. Expect the Huskers to keep the Bobcats down in the 50s-60s. Ohio is more of a jump shooting team so the Huskers shouldn't be in foul trouble in this contest...expect another small rotation unless the game gets out of hand. The Huskers need to track Javarez Willis as Ohio's main 3pt shooting option went off for 7-14 beyond the arc while putting up 31 vs DePaul.

    The Huskers will need to make some baskets today because Ohio doesn't play a very aggressive style of defense. Hopefully it will mean yet another game with minimal turnovers and a game where the Huskers don't take +10 less shots than their opponents.

    Prediction: Nebraska 66 - Ohio 59
