Scouting: Senior forward Audrey Faber has been the leading scorer for the Bluejays in four of their five games this season and has games of 27 and 23 points on the young season. The Iowa native is one of two Bluejays averaging double figures in points. Creighton junior Brooke Kissinger is the sister of Husker sophomore guard Taylor.

Trending: Creighton won its second game of the season against North Dakota State before losing three straight against South Dakota State, Northern Iowa and Drake. But the Bluejays have dealt with a handful of injuries, as they have yet to play a game with their projected starting lineup.

Forecasting: The Huskers are looking to end a two-game losing streak against Creighton on Sunday, though Nebraska leads the series 30-13. On experience alone, Nebraska should have the advantage Sunday. Aside from Faber, the rest of Creighton’s team has combined to play 93 games. Look for Amy Williams’ bunch to have an advantage on the glass, as Nebraska enters averaging 40 rebounds per game compared to Creighton’s 31.
