Scouting: If it weren’t for the guys playing at Duke, Indiana’s Romeo Langford would be the runaway choice for national freshman of the year. He scored 20 of his 28 points against Maryland in the second half, and while he’s struggled from the three-point line (25 percent on the season), he’s as good as there is in the Big Ten at finishing at the rim. He’ll likely be a lottery pick should he choose to go pro after this season.

Trending: It’s approaching a calendar year since Nebraska won a road game in the Big Ten, with the last such victory coming last Feb. 6 at Minnesota. The Huskers have had success in Assembly Hall, and Monday’s game figures to be another coin flip against evenly matched teams.

Forecasting: The Huskers get three of their next four at home against Michigan State, Wisconsin and Ohio State, with the road game at Rutgers. A win Monday could kick-start what could turn into a season-defining stretch of games for NU.
