Scouting: Lamar Stevens can score with anyone in the league, but it's fellow senior Josh Reaves who might give Nebraska the most trouble. The 6-foot-5 guard leads the Big Ten in steals and had seven last season in Lincoln. Reaves is No. 5 in the NCAA's active career steals list.

Trending: A Husker victory would give NU a school record-tying 20-game home-winning streak, equaling the mark originally set in 1965-66 and 1966-67. The Huskers' last loss in Pinnacle Bank Arena came last Dec. 16 against Kansas.

Forecasting: If it's not a must-win, it's close. Nebraska's next two are at Indiana and home against Michigan State. A home loss to one of the Big Ten's bottom feeders could split open a few of the cracks starting to show in Nebraska's facade.
