 The fans at Petersen Events Center will be treated to a game between the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks and the Pittsburgh Panthers when they take their seats on Wednesday.

ABOUT OMAHA (7-5): Senior guard Tra-Deon Hollins scored 20 points against the Titans, including two free throws with 15 seconds left in regulation to force an extra session, and added 10 assists, eight rebounds, three steals and a block. Junior forward Tre’Shawn Thurman added 15 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, while sophomore guard Zach Jackson tallied 19 points, including a 3-pointer to opener the overtime and the Mavericks never looked back. The 6-7 Thurman leads the team in scoring (14 points per game) and rebounding (8.2), the 6-2 Hollins adds 11 points, 6.8 assists and 2.8 steals, while 6-1 senior Marcus Tyus averages 13.4 points and has drained a team-high 20 3-pointers.

ABOUT PITTSBURGH (9-2): Sophomore forward Cameron Johnson (11.7 points, team-high 25 3-pointers) scored 10 points against Rice and has reached double figures in seven straight games. The 6-9 Luther (7.6 points, 4.8 rebounds), who is averaging 12 points and six rebounds over the past three contests, is part of a timeshare with 6-8 senior Sheldon Jeter (6.1, 7.4). The Panthers are 6-0 at the Petersen Events Center this season and have won 15 consecutive non-conference home games against unranked opponents.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Panthers listed as 13.5-point favorites versus the Mavericks, while the game’s total is sitting at 162 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Jamel Artis is used to taking a backseat to fellow senior star Michael Young, but despite 31 points Saturday against Rice, Artist was overlooked again by coach Kevin Stallings. Artis seeks to gain top billing once and for all as the Panthers play the second of a season-long five-game homestand Wednesday against Omaha.

Artis shot 10-of-14 during his season-high scoring outburst against the Owls, but junior forward Ryan Luther got the accolades from coach as he came off the bench to post a career-high 20 points on 8-of-8 shooting as the Panthers shot a season-high 64.4 percent in the 83-73 victory. “I actually apologized to (Artis) after the game. In the locker room, I singled out Ryan and said ‘Ryan, way to play man – everyone give Ryan a round of applause,’ Stallings told reporters. “I grabbed the stat sheet, looked down and saw Jamel had 31. I went back in the locker room and said ‘Hey Jamel, I’m sorry I didn’t congratulate you.’ Jamel looked at me, and said ‘it’s cool’.” The outburst pushed the 6-7 forward’s scoring average to 20.1 points; Artis and Young (22 points, 7.6 rebounds) join Davidson’s duo of Jack Gibbs and Peyton Aldridge as the only teammates in Division I to average 20 points per contest this season. Omaha, which is coming off a 102-96 overtime victory over Cal State Fullerton on Sunday, has won three straight since a 91-47 loss to Iowa State.

Last time out for Pittsburgh, they were a 83-73 winner as they battled Owls at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -11-point favorite.

Last time out for Nebraska-Omaha, they were a 102-96 winner as they battled Titans at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -10-point favorite.
