The fans at Verizon Center will be treated to a game between the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Nebraska Cornhuskers when they take their seats on Wednesday.

ABOUT NEBRASKA (12-18): Senior guard Tai Webster was named to the All-Big Ten Second Team by the media after averaging 17.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and four assists. Isaiah Roby and Ed Morrow each scored 10 points while Webster, who had scored in double figures in 30 straight games, was held to a season-low eight points as the Cornhuskers committed 16 turnovers in the 36-point loss to Michigan. “We have to be mentally stronger,” Nebraska head coach Tim Miles told reporters. “As soon as the first thing goes wrong we expect the worst to happen.”

ABOUT PENN STATE (14-17): Sophomore guard Josh Reaves led the way with a career-high 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting from the field to go along with five rebounds and five assists against Iowa in the regular-season finale. Carr was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team after averaging 13.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists during the regular season, and became the first Nittany Lion to earn the distinction since Jamelle Cornley in 2006. Freshman forward Nazeer Bostick has missed the last four games with a fractured hand and will sit out the first-round clash against Nebraska.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nittany Lions listed as 1½-point favorites versus the Cornhuskers, while the game’s total is sitting at 139½.

No. 12 Nebraska looks to bounce back from its worst home loss in program history when it opens the Big Ten Tournament against 13th-seeded Penn State in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. The Cornhuskers started conference play with three straight wins for the first time in over 40 years but went 3-12 the rest of the way, including a 93-57 setback to Michigan in the regular-season finale, to finish below .500 for the third consecutive year.

Nebraska beat the Nittany Lions 82-66 in the only meeting of the season on Feb. 14 and hopes to build some confidence early in the tournament just like it did during last year’s surprising run to the quarterfinals. Penn State limps into the conference tournament having lost five straight games following a 90-79 defeat to Iowa on Sunday. The Nittany Lions seemed poised to turn the corner after knocking off Minnesota 52-50 on Jan. 14, but went on to drop 10 of their next 13 games, and they hope to prolong their season by notching a win in the tournament for the first time since 2015. “I knew coming here that it wasn’t going to be all roses and giggles,” freshman point guard Tony Carr told reporters. “Everything’s a process as you don’t just jump into something and make it in one day.”

Nebraska was a 93-57 loser in their most recent outing at home against Wolverines. They failed to cover the +5-point spread as underdogs.

Penn State was a 90-79 loser in its last match on the road against Hawkeyes. They failed to cover the +7-point spread as underdogs.
