Scouting: He's not a starter, but SLU true freshman Parker Edwards came off the bench late against LSU and put on an all-time flame-thrower performance. Edwards, in just 10 minutes, hit his first six three-point attempts, scored 25 points with literally no other stats (no rebounds, assists, turnovers, fouls or steals), and had the LSU crowd chanting for him in the closing minutes.

Trending: Glynn Watson will play his 100th game in a Nebraska uniform Sunday. The senior will have started 79 of those games. Only Isaac Copeland and James Palmer have played in more collegiate games, with Copeland at 108 after Sunday and Palmer at 107. Copeland played in 73 games at Georgetown, while Palmer played in 72 at Miami.

Forecasting: Southeastern Louisiana is a solid program. The Lions were a No. 8 seed in the NIT last season after going 22-12 overall and winning the Southland Conference regular-season title with a 15-3 record before falling to Stephen F. Austin in the league tournament championship game. Nebraska will again be a heavy favorite, but the Lions won't be the pushover Mississippi Valley State was.
