The Buckeyes defense held Nebraska to 42% from the floor, even though Nebraska attempted 11 more shots than Ohio State.

Penn State will be seeking revenge after a 106-74 loss on December 7 in Columbus. Jones converted on 6 of 13 attempts from the floor, totaling 15 points and 5 rebounds. It is the fourth time this season he has hit at least three 3-pointers in a game. Penn State lost the game from the charity stripe, as Minnesota out scored Penn State 23 to 13 from the foul line. The Nittany Lions are 9-1 at home but just 3-4 on the road or at neutral sites.

Ohio State (12-5, 2-4 Big Ten) shot 54.5 percent on the night, the highest percentage by a Husker opponent this season.
