Scouting: The Ohio State offense orbits around Kaleb Wesson, who checks in at 6-foot-9, 270 pounds. Besides leading the Buckeyes in scoring and rebounding, Wesson has proven to be a deft passer, dishing out 2.0 assists per game. Opposing defenses collapsing on him is a big reason Ohio State leads the Big Ten in three-point shooting percentage (.377).
Trending: Few programs dominate Husker hoops like Ohio State. The Buckeyes are 16-4 all-time against the Huskers, 10-2 since Nebraska joined the Big Ten and 9-1 in Columbus, Ohio, with the only defeat being a one-point loss in 2017. Ten of Ohio State's 16 wins in the series have been by double figures.
Forecasting: Nothing's going to be easy for Nebraska the rest of the way, but this one could be especially tough. Ohio State is desperate, having lost four games in a row, has a dominant big man and is playing at home. It's going to take Nebraska's best performance of the season just to have a chance.
