The Nebraska men's basketball team will look to rebound against Penn State after another heart-breaking loss in overtime against No. 7 Wisconsin last week.

The Huskers have now dropped eight of their last nine games after starting out 3-0 in Big Ten play. Penn State comes into the matchup with Nebraska after knocking off No. 21 Maryland and Illinois last week. Penn State sits at 14-12 overall this season and 6-7 in Big Ten play.

Four different Nittany Lions average in double-digit scoring, led by freshman Tony Carr with 12.5 ppg. Mike Watkins handles the paint for Penn State as he averages 8.2 rebounds and is second in the Big Ten in blocked shots with 2.6 per game. Penn State starts just one upperclassman this season.

While Nebraska and the Nittany Lions have split the series since the Huskers joined the Big Ten, Nebraska holds a 4-0 advantage over Penn State in Lincoln where the two will meet Tuesday.

Tipoff is set for 8:06 p.m. Tuesday and will be broadcasted live on the Big Ten Network.
