Scouting: Missouri's top returning scorer is senior guard Amber Smith, who averaged 12.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game last season. Smith opened this season with a 27-point, 15-rebound game in a 97-89 overtime win against Western Illinois.

Trending: Sunday's game will mark the 73rd all-time meeting between the Huskers and the Tigers. Only three schools — Kansas (83), Kansas State (79) and Iowa State (76) — have played more women's basketball games against Nebraska. Nebraska also played Missouri during Amy Williams’ first year as NU's head coach, with the Huskers losing 55-35.

Forecasting: This would be a really good win for Nebraska, on the road against a team that reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament last season.
