Scouting: Fifth-year senior forward Stasha Carey is an all-around leader for the Scarlet Knights. She averages 10.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 blocks per game.

Trending: Nebraska and Rutgers tied for the national lead with 14-game turnarounds in the win column last season The Huskers finished 21-11 and earned an NCAA Tournament bid, while the Scarlet Knights finished 20-12 and declined a WNIT bid. Rutgers has had the better start this season and is on a seven-game winning streak that included an upset win against then-No. 4-ranked Maryland.

Forecasting: We’re only a few weeks into the conference season, but anytime you beat the first-place team in the Big Ten standings, as Rutgers is at 4-0, it would be a great win.
