Scouting: Southern Illinois-Edwardsville is led by former Nebraska player Bria Stallworth. The 5-foot-6 point guard didn’t play for the Huskers last season, but graduated from Nebraska in May. She's averaging a team-best 11.3 points while sharing the team lead with 2.3 assists per game. She’s made four three-pointers.

Trending: During Thursday’s 78-55 home win against Morgan State, Nebraska sophomore guard Leigha Brown led the Huskers with 16 points and a career-high-tying five assists off the bench. Brown is averaging a team-best 16.7 points and is the only Husker to produce double-figure scoring in all three games.

Forecasting: Nebraska should get another win, and would probably get bonus points from coach Amy Williams if it quits letting opponents get a lot of offensive rebounds. Nebraska's first three opponents have pulled down 25, 20 and 10 offensive rebounds.
