The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be looking for their first win of the season when they take on the South Dakota State Jackrabbits on Friday night.
Jackrabbits Looking For Fourth Win In Five GamesThe Jackrabbits are off to a good start this season, winning three of their first four games. They suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the USC Trojans, who snapped their three-game winning streak and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Cornhuskers.
South Dakota State has played well on offense this season, averaging 78.8 points per game. The team is shooting 44 percent from the field and 28 percent from three-point range.
In their last game, the Jackrabbits were held to a season-low 66 points after shooting 38 percent from the field and 25 percent from three-point range. Douglas Wilson led the way for the Jackrabbits with 15 points, three rebounds, and two assists. David Wingett finished with 10 points and four rebounds, while Baylor Scheierman added nine points and seven rebounds for the Jackrabbits, who finished the game with two players scoring in double figures.
The Jackrabbits also struggled defensively against the Trojans, giving up 84 points in the loss. Even though the Cornhuskers haven’t played well offensively, the Jackrabbits will need a better defensive effort if they want to get the win.
Cornhuskers Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing StreakThe Cornhuskers are off to a disappointing start this season after losing their first two games, which were supposed to be tune-up games. They will be trying to snap their losing streak and pick up their first win of the season when they play the Jackrabbits on Friday night.
Nebraska hasn’t played well offensively, averaging 62.5 points per game, which won’t help them win too many games this year. The team is shooting 33 percent from the field and 21 percent from three-point range.
In their last game, the Cornhuskers had their best offensive performance of the season, scoring 78 points in their overtime loss to Southern Utah.
Kevin Cross led the way for the Cornhuskers with 19 points and five rebounds. Jervay Green finished with 18 points and eight rebounds, while Cam Mack added 13 points, seven rebounds, and 11 assists. The team will need to play better than they did in this game to get past the Jackrabbits.
Nebraska’s defense also hasn’t been very good this season with opponents averaging 72.5 points per game against them. They will be facing a good offensive team on Friday and have to play better than they did in their first two games if they want to snap their losing streak.
