Nebraska (13-7, 4-3 Big Ten) come into Thursday's game as winners of six of their last eight games following the 64-63 win over Illinois on Monday evening. James Palmer Jr. provided the heroics, hitting a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to cap a 24-point performance. In fact, Nebraska's last two games have gone down to the final three seconds, as the Huskers lost at Penn State in the final 2.7 seconds of overtime.
While Palmer, who leads three Huskers in scoring at 15.7 points per game, hit the game winner, the play of Isaiah Roby and Evan Taylor helped key Nebraska's rally. Roby nearly posted a double-double in his first start of the year, finishing with nine points, 10 rebounds, four steals and two blocks. Taylor, who came off the bench, added 13 points, five rebounds and two assists.
The Huskers will face one of the hottest teams in the Big Ten, as Michigan (16-4, 5-2 Big Ten) comes to Lincoln as winners of nine of their last 10 games, including a 10-point win at then No. 4 Michigan State last Saturday.
The Wolverines, who are ranked 23rd in this week's AP poll, are coming off a 68-67 win over Maryland on Monday. The Wolverines needed two free throws from Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman with 1.2 seconds left to escape with the win. Michigan features its 1-2 punch of Moritz Wagner (14.9 ppg, 7.2 rpg) and Charles Matthews (14.9 ppg, 5.2 rpg).
