Scouting: Endyia Rogers, the 2019 Texas High School Player of the Year at Bishop Lynch in Dallas, is leading a youth movement for USC as one of three freshman starters for the Trojans. Rogers is averaging 12.4 points and 4.6 rebounds, including a career-high 20 points in a loss against Texas A&M on Saturday.

Trending: The next blocked shot for Husker junior center Kate Cain will be the 200th of her career. She already ranks No. 4 in program history for career blocks. The school record for career blocks is 238 by Janet Smith (1979-82).

Forecasting: USC played No. 6-ranked Texas A&M pretty close before losing 74-64, and this would be a pretty good win for the Huskers.
