Huskers Shoot for Upset of Top 10 Terrapins
• The Nebraska women’s basketball team returns to Pinnacle Bank Arena on Tuesday to take on No. 9 Maryland in a key Big Ten battle.
• Tip off between Nebraska (7-7, 2-1 Big Ten) and the Terrapins (13-1, 2-1 Big Ten) is set for 7 p.m. (CT) in Lincoln. Live radio coverage (beginning at 6:45 p.m.) can be heard in Lincoln on B107.3 FM, in Omaha, ESPN 590 AM, and in Lexington on 880 AM KRVN, and across the state on Husker Sports Network stations. Free live audio can also be found at Huskers.com, the Huskers App and TuneIn.
• A live video stream will be provided to BTN Plus subscribers.
• 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, who was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week (Jan. 7), owns the highest scoring average by any Big Ten freshman (16.7 ppg). The 6-1 wing from Auburn, Indiana is averaging 10.4 points per game for an extremely balanced Nebraska offense.
• 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 overall on the season, 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). 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 features one of the Big Ten’s most balanced lineups with eight players averaging 7.8 or more points per game and nine active players averaging double-figure minutes. Returning Nebraska starters Maddie Simon, Nicea Eliely and Hannah Whitish are all averaging 8.6 points per game.
• Maryland is led by unanimous first-team All-Big Ten selection Kaila Charles, who is averaging a team-best 16.8 points per game, including 20.7 points in Big Ten play. The Terps have featured a seven-player rotation early in conference play.
• Tuesday’s game will also showcase two of the Big Ten’s most accurate and active 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).

Head Coach: Brenda Frese (Arizona, 1993)
17th Season at Maryland (442-120); 20th Season Overall (499-150)
Scouting the No. 9 Maryland Terrapins
• Coach Brenda Frese brings her Maryland Terrapins to Lincoln ranked among the top 10 teams in the nation with a 13-1 overall record and a 2-1 Big Ten mark. Frese will take aim at her 500th career win in her 20th season as a college head coach.
• In her 17 seasons at Maryland, Frese has led the Terps to the 2006 NCAA title, three NCAA Final Four appearances and 14 NCAA Tournament bids. Last year, Maryland finished 26-8 overall and 12-4 in the Big Ten to finish second in the conference. The Terps lost in the NCAA second round.
• Maryland went a perfect 11-0 in non-conference play, including top-25 wins at South Carolina (Nov. 18) and over Georgia in Puerto Rico (Nov. 29), but after a Big Ten road-opening win at Penn State (Dec. 28), the Terps suffered a 73-65 home loss to Rutgers on New Year’s Eve.
• The Terrapins bounced back with a 75-69 win over Ohio State in College Park, Md., on Jan. 5, before traveling to Lincoln.
• 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 and Watson were both McDonald’s High School All-Americans in 2016 and ranked among the top-30 players in the nation. Jones was ranked No. 35 in the country by All-Star Girls Report and No. 51 by ESPN.
• Charles, who has scored in double figures in all but one game also has a pair of double-doubles this season. She is averaging 20.7 points in Big Ten play. Charles earned first-team All-Big Ten honors last season after averaging 17.9 points and 8.1 rebounds per game as a sophomore. The 6-1 wing out of Riverdale Baptist School in Maryland, is a Naismith and Wade Trophy candidate this season. She was a Big Ten All-Freshman choice and earned a spot on the Big Ten All-Tournament team in 2016-17.
• Watson, a 6-0 guard out of New Jersey, has produced double figures four times this season after returning from a knee injury that ended her sophomore season for Maryland after starting the first 17 games. Watson averaged 13.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.3 steals in 2017-18.
• Jones, whose sister Brionna also starred at Maryland (2014-17), is in her second season in the Terp starting five. Last season, she averaged 10.8 points and 6.5 rebounds. The 6-2 forward from Havre de Grace, Md., owns a pair of double-doubles this season and has scored in double figures 11 times.
• The Terps also showcase a pair of 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 was a McDonald’s and WBCA All-American who was ranked as the No. 3 overall player in the nation coming out of high school at Riverdale Baptist - the same school as Kaila Charles. Mikesell was an honorable-mention WBCA All-American in high school and ranked as the No. 32 overall player in the country by ESPN.
• Austin is a four-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week. She owns five double-doubles, including 12 points, 21 rebounds and seven blocks vs. Coppin State (Nov. 9). She had 17 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocks at Delaware (Dec. 20). 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 in 16.7 minutes per game early in Big Ten play.
• Mikesell, a 5-11 guard, has proven herself as one of the Big Ten’s best shooters by knocking down 43-of-104 threes (.413) early in the season. She has added 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
• While all five Maryland starters ranked among the top 35 players in the nation coming out of their respective high school senior classes, the Terps feature even more explosive talent off the bench. Maryland’s lone senior - Brianna Fraser - came out of high school as the No. 12 player in the nation by All-Star Girls Report and No. 15 by ESPN. She is averaging 8.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in just 17.5 minutes per game off the bench. She averaged 10.2 points and 5.8 boards off the bench a year ago and has played in 113 games for the Terps with just three starts in her career.
• Channise Lewis, a 5-8 sophomore who started 32 games at point guard last year and added 10 starts ahead of Mikesell early this season, was ranked as the No. 55 player in the nation by ESPN coming out of Miami Country Day High School. She is averaging 3.1 points and a team-best 5.1 assists this season. Lewis had a double-double early this season with 10 points and 12 assists in a win over nationally ranked South Carolina.
• 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 (Dec. 31), 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.

• Junior Grace Mitchell had appeared in 13 consecutive games off the bench, including the first 11 contests this season, before missing the Big Ten opener against Michigan (Dec. 28) with a foot injury. Mitchell, who also missed NU’s win at Ohio State (Dec. 31) returned to action at Iowa (Jan. 3).
• The Huskers have knocked down at least one three in 326 straight games dating back to a loss at UTEP on Dec. 20, 2008. Nebraska has hit at least two three-pointers in 205 consecutive games.
Freshmen Contributing Early for Huskers
• Nebraska has received production early and often from its 2018-19 freshman class. The four-player class, which was ranked among the top 20 recruiting classes in the nation by ESPN last season, features Sam Haiby (1 0.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 2.8 apg), Leigha Brown (10.4 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.3 apg) Ashtyn Veerbeek (8.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg) and Kayla Mershon (2.4 ppg, 2.5 rpg).
• Haiby, a 5-9 guard from Moorhead, Minn., leads Nebraska with 10.7 points per game off the bench. She has led the Huskers in scoring in five games, including against nationally ranked Drake (13) and Miami (14), while also scoring a career-high 20 points at Washington State and adding 17 points at Creighton. She also had 16 points to lead the Huskers at Arkansas (Dec. 18). She owns seven double-figure scoring efforts overall, including 12 points at No. 5 Louisville (Nov. 29) and 12 more in Nebraska’s Big Ten-opening win over Michigan (Dec. 28).
• Haiby also ranks second among the Huskers in assists (2.8 apg).
• Leigha Brown ranks second overall among the Huskers in scoring with 10.4 points per game after erupting for a career-high 20 points at No. 19 Iowa (Jan. 3). It was her second straight game leading the Huskers, after scoring a then-career-high 19 points at Ohio State (Dec. 31). Brown is leading Nebraska in Big Ten play with 16.7 points per game - the top scoring average by a league freshman in conference-play only. Brown had 11 points and a career-high five rebounds in a win over Michigan (Dec. 28). She had 18 points in the win over San Jose State (Dec. 8), before adding 17 points and a career-high five assists in the win over Denver (Dec. 15). The 6-1 wing from Auburn, Indiana owns six double-figure scoring efforts and has led the Big Red in scoring four times this season.
• Ashtyn Veerbeek ranks third among the Husker freshmen in scoring with 8.0 points per game, while leading the team with 6.5 rebounds. Veerbeek produced her first career double-double with career highs of 14 points and 14 rebounds in a win over San Jose State (Dec. 8).

• The freshmen have combined for 40.2 percent (432-of-1,075) of Nebraska’s points in just 35.3 percent of the team’s total minutes (1,006-of-2,850) on the season. They also have accounted for just 28 percent (62-of-221) of Nebraska’s turnovers.
• Nebraska’s four freshmen are combining to average 31.5 points and 14.6 rebounds per game - all off the bench, giving the Huskers one of the deepest and most productive benches in the Big Ten.
Whitish Earns Preseason All-Big Ten Honors
• Nebraska’s Hannah Whitish was named to the 12-player All-Big Ten Team by the conference coaches when the annual preseason honors were announced on Oct. 22.
• Whitish, a 5-9 junior guard from Barneveld, Wis., led Nebraska in scoring (12.6 ppg) and assists (4.7 apg) as a sophomore in 2017-18. She owned a 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio as Nebraska’s point guard while also ranking among the Big Ten’s best three-point shooters. Whitish played a major role in lifting Nebraska to the nation’s top turnaround in the win column last season, as the Huskers recorded 14 more victories (21) in 2017-18 than in 2016-17 (7). She captured second-team All-Big Ten accolades at the end of last season while helping Nebraska to the NCAA Tournament.
• Whitish was the lone Husker honored by the league in preseason voting of the conference coaches.
• The Big Ten Conference does not rank its team’s No. 1 through No. 14 in preseason voting, instead the coaches and select media members each choose their projected top-three teams in the league. Maryland is the preseason pick of the coaches and the media to win the Big Ten, while Iowa was picked No. 2 by both the coaches and media. The league coaches chose Michigan in the No. 3 spot, while the conference media selected Minnesota. Iowa senior center Megan Gustafson was chosen by the coaches as the Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year. Gustafson, Maryland’s Kaila Charles, Michigan’s Hallie Thome and Minnesota’s Kenisha Bell were all unanimous preseason all-conference selections by the coaches.
Nebraska’s History of Home Success
• Nebraska had its streak of 12 consecutive season-opening wins snapped with an 83-77 loss to current top-25 team and two-time defending Missouri Valley Conference champion Drake on Nov. 7.

• The Huskers played the first regular-season game arena history against USA Today No. 25 UCLA (Nov. 8, 2013) and rolled to a 77-49 win over the Bruins. NU’s first win over an AP Top 25 team came with a 76-56 win over No. 24 Michigan State on Feb. 8, 2014.
