This will be brief so read through the scouting thread.
Kendall Stephens is out. Caleb Swanigan might also be out but it's a game time decision. Even though Purdue might be down a couple of key players, we're still talking about a top 25 team playing at home.
The Huskers need to force turnovers and not put Purdue on the line in addition to having a decent shooting night. The Boilermakers run the boards on both ends of the court so simply being respectable rebounding the ball would be helpful.
Prediction: Purdue 76 - Nebraska 67
