Penn State Basketball vs. Nebraska: How to watch, tale of the tape, more

Penn State Basketball suffered its worst loss of the season to Nebraska, but the Nittany Lions get a chance at revenge against the Cornhuskers Tuesday

Penn State Basketball heads to Nebraska to get revenge for their lone “bad loss” on the year Tuesday night at 8:00 pm on the Big Ten Network or Fox Sports App.

Tale of the tape:

KenPom:  Penn State 34, Nebraska 117

NET Rankings: Penn State 41, Nebraska 147

Conference Standings: Penn State 12th (4-11, 7-12 overall), Nebraska 14th (1-12, 5-15 overall)

Spead: Penn State is a 6-point favorite

Last Time Out: Penn State fell at Iowa on Sunday 74-68, Nebraska fell at home vs Purdue on Saturday 75-58

Last Head to Head Matchup:  As VBR readers know, PSU lost to Nebraska in brutal fashion 62-61 at home last week.

This was Penn State’s first (and to date only) “bad loss” on the resume as the Nittany Lions gave Nebraska their first conference win in over a calendar year.  PSU played horrible for 30 minutes, came back in the last minute to take the lead only to give Nebraska an easy lay-up with fouls to give and then not even getting off their own game winning shot before time expired.  Gut punch city.

About the Huskers:  Nebraska is led by G Teddy Allen in scoring (16.5 ppg) and oddly another G (Dalano Banton) leads the Huskers in rebounding (4.4 rbg) and assists (4.4 apg).  Nebraska doesn’t have a single player shooting over 37% who’s played in 10+ games so they’re not a great shooting team.  They are a 62.4% free throw shooting team and commit over 13 turnovers a game.  This is a team Penn State should beat easily.  Of course, that’s not what happened last time.  #Climbing is never easy.
