    Key Injuries:


    Terran Petteway - TP3 turned his ankle during the Rhode Island game but came back and gutted it out. He didn't practice on Monday and is a game time decision. Considering how much Terran hates sitting or resting, he'll probably be on the court. If he misses expect Benny Parker to slide into the starting lineup.


    Jake White: The Wichita St. transfer and starter has missed the last two games with a foot injury. Also a game time decision, Tre'Shawn Thurman has been starting in his place

    Player to Watch: Tre'Shawn Thurman

    The 6'7" Thurman was touted as one of the better prospects coming out of Nebraska last year and wasn't offered by the Huskers. I'd expect at least a glance over at Miles after a made basket.

    Player to Watch: CJ Carter

    The former Benson Bunny was named to the All Summit team and represents the biggest 3 pt shooting threat on a team of shooting threats. The Huskers will probably sag into the lane quite a bit to take away penetration and the opportunity will be there for Carter to hurt Nebraska from deep.

    The Skinny

    Up until last week this was a trap game for the Huskers. After the Huskers didn't show up in Rhode Island and UNO took down Marquette on the road, the Mavs should have the full attention of the Huskers.

    Tonight's game will be all about pace: A fast break team vs. a team designed to stop the fast break. The Mavs attack the rim and the offensive glass non-stop and as long as the Huskers don't get sucked taking bad shots that turn into fast break points, they should be able to handle UNO.

    Miles has been harping about the physicality and it's shown in the rebounding totals for the first three games. We're going to turn the Maverick's aggressiveness into points but look for every player to hit the defensive boards to start the game at the expense of easy points. If the Huskers display patience on offense, those points will still be there against an UNO team that doesn't spend a lot of time on d.

    Hot shooting on the part of the Mavs and foul trouble are probably your biggest concerns tonight. Look for the Huskers to get back on track.

    Prediction: Nebraska 85 UNO 72 with a 99% chance of Runzas
