What to Know
Duquesne has played every game this season on their home court, but they'll have to hit the road on Wednesday. They will take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers at 8:00 p.m. ET at Pinnacle Bank Arena. After the pair made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
Winning is just a little bit easier when you nail eight more threes than your opponent, a fact Duquesne proved on Friday. Everything went their way against the Broncs as the Dukes made off with a 77-58 win.
Duquesne can attribute much of their success to Dae Dae Grant, who scored 23 points. Jimmy Clark III was another key contributor, scoring 14 points along with 5 rebounds.
Meanwhile, Nebraska put another one in the bag on Saturday to keep their perfect season alive. They beat the Beavers by the very same score they won with last week: 84-63. Nebraska might be getting used to big wins seeing as the team's won four contests by 21 points or more this season.
The losses dropped the Dukes to 4-1 and the Broncs to 1-3.
Not only did both teams in this Wednesday's game win their last matches, they also took care of their bettors and covered the spread. Looking ahead, Nebraska is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 5.5 points. This will be Duquesne's first time playing as the underdogs this season.
This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: Duquesne have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 39.6 rebounds per game. However, it's not like Nebraska struggles in that department as they've been even better at 47 per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
