This one is slated to be another “must win” for Nebrasketball. Plenty of Quad 1 and Quad 2 games at PBA, starting tonight against the Buckeyes. It is pivotal to protect the home floor, especially since Ohio State comes into tonight’s contest winless on the road during conference play (sound familiar)?

Ohio State comes into the game ranked 44th in KenPom and 46th in the NET Rankings. Nebraska comes into tonight ranked 49th in KenPom and 56th in the NET Rankings.
