Gophers at a glance: Minnesota (12-6, 1-3) outscored No. 18 Nebraska 36-26 in the paint Thursday. The Gophers shot better from the field than the Cornhuskers, better from three-point range, and held the lead throughout the second half. Yet, the Gophers left Lincoln, Neb., with a disappointing 88-85 overtime loss. Rachel Banham scored 33 points, set a new career-high with eight assists, and hit a three-point shot with nine seconds left to send the game to overtime. But the Gophers struggled with foul trouble and turnovers in key situations late. … Banham has scored 93 points over her past three games, and leads the Big Ten, averaging 26.5 points-per-game. … Sari Noga continued her stellar long-range shooting, hitting four of nine shots from behind the arc Thursday. Noga, who has averaged 15.7 points in her past three games, is hitting 41 percent of her three-pointers.

Hoosiers at a glance: Once one of the hottest teams in the country, Indiana (14-3, 1-3) has lost its past three games after starting the season 14-0. The Hoosiers shot just 25.7 percent from the field in an 86-53 blowout loss at No. 22 Purdue on Friday. … The Hoosiers have three freshmen guards in their starting lineup, who account for more than 40 percent of the team’s scoring: Larryn Brooks, Alexis Gassion and Taylor Agler. Brooks averages a team-high 17.4 points per game. … Today’s game will be the 60th time the two programs have met; Minnesota holds a 33-26 edge.
