What to Know
The Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Boston College Eagles at 9:15 p.m. ET Wednesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Nebraska is out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
While not quite a landslide, the matchup between the Cornhuskers and the Florida State Seminoles on Sunday was still a pretty decisive one as Nebraska wrapped it up with a 75-58 win. Five players on Nebraska scored in the double digits: forward Derrick Walker (20), guard C.J. Wilcher (13), guard Sam Griesel (13), guard Keisei Tominaga (13), and forward Juwan Gary (10).
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Sunday BC sidestepped the Rhode Island Rams for a 53-49 victory. Guard Jaeden Zackery (16 points) was the top scorer for BC.
Nebraska is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Sunday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Their wins bumped the Cornhuskers to 4-3 and the Eagles to 5-2. On Sunday Nebraska relied heavily on Derrick Walker, who posted a double-double on 20 points and 13 boards. It will be up to Boston College's defense to limit his damage.
