COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State is riding a season-high five-game win streak and is looking for a season sweep of Nebraska when the two teams tangle on Wednesday evening at Value City Arena. The first game this year was a great game as the Buckeyes overcame a 15-point second half deficit and got a huge three-pointer from Braxtin Miller late in overtime to seal an 80-74 victory. Tickets are still available for what is the Buckeyes’ second to last home game of the season. Wednesday will also feature the OSU Marching Band’s signature Script Ohio at halftime.

  • The Buckeyes have won six of the last seven in the series with Nebraska and hold at slim 10-8 advantage all time.
  • Ohio State is currently 16-9 on the year and is 9-5 in the conference. The Buckeyes are just a half game behind Indiana for fourth place and with the Hoosiers idle this week, they can pull even with a win over Nebraska.

  • Nebraska comes into the game reeling a bit, having lost five of its last six. The lone win in that stretch came against last place Penn State. However, the Cornhuskers have been in every one of the games as they have a point differential of just -3.1 in the last six games.
  • Madison Greene has been tremendous for the Buckeyes the last two games and was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week. She averaged 23.5 points, 5.0 assists and shot nearly 70 percent in the two wins last week.
  • Junior guard Braxtin Miller has been a consistent presence for the Buckeyes all season and she is creeping up on a personal milestone. She is just five points away from 1,000 in her career.
  • Kierstan Bell has made multiple threes in seven of the last eight games. She is second on the team in scoring at 11.3 ppg.
