-Nebraska is coming off an 80-69 win over Arkansas at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Thursday night to improve to 3-0 on the season. The win over the Razorbacks followed an 80-60 win over UMKC on Tuesday, giving Nebraska back-to-back 80-point offensive performances for the first time since games No. 9 (at Cal, Dec. 12, 2015 - 80-87) and No. 10 (Northern Arizona, Dec. 19, 2015 - 90-67) of 2015-16.

-Freshman guard Taylor Kissinger (Minden, Neb.) led the Big Red in scoring for the second straight game, pouring in a career-high 25 points to go along with career highs of eight rebounds and four assists in the win over Arkansas.
