Lincoln – The Nebraska men’s basketball team fought hard Thursday night, but the Huskers could not overcome their worst shooting night of the season in a 70-64 loss to No. 6 Michigan State at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Despite shooting just 32.8 percent from the field and hitting only 5-of-26 from the 3-point line, Nebraska was within striking distance in a game that featured 11 lead changes and six ties. The game was tied at 44 with 9:43 remaining, but Michigan State responded with a 7-0 run and never relinquished the lead.

The loss snapped Nebraska’s school-record-tying 20-game home winning streak, as the Huskers dropped to 13-5 on the season and 3-4 in Big Ten Conference play. James Palmer Jr. led the Huskers with 24 points and eight rebounds, and the senior went 11-of-11 from the free-throw line. Isaac Copeland Jr. added 13 points in his 100th career start, while Thomas Allen chipped in nine points and Glynn Watson Jr. had eight.

Cassius Winston led Michigan State with a career-high 29 points on 9-of-15 shooting. Behind Winston, the Spartans (16-2 overall, 7-0 Big Ten) won their 11th straight game, set a school record with their 19th consecutive regular-season Big Ten Conference win and extended their school record with their 11th consecutive Big Ten road win.

Michigan State used the play of Winston and Nick Ward to take a 33-28 lead into the locker room, marking the first time the Huskers had trailed at halftime at home this season. Winston had 16 first-half points and three assists, while Ward added nine points and six rebounds. Copeland led NU with nine first-half points, but Nebraska shot just 28 percent from the field.

Nebraska trailed 15-11 before Watson keyed an 8-0 spurt with a pair of 3-pointers, the second of which gave the Huskers a 19-15 lead with 10:51 left in the first half. MSU responded with five straight points to regain the lead before Allen answered with a three to put NU on top 22-20. The Huskers stretched the lead to four on an Allen basket with 4:47 to play in the half, but that was the last field goal Nebraska would make in the half, as the Spartans closed the half on an 11-2 run, scoring the final seven points of the period to take a five-point lead at the half.

In the second half, Nebraska used a 6-0 run to grab a 36-35 lead five minutes into the period. Michigan State answered by scoring seven of the next nine points but the Huskers again fought back, tying the game at 44 on a pair of Palmer free throws with less than 10 minutes to play. But Michigan State put the game away with a 16-4 run over the next eight minutes, building a 60-48 advantage with 1:50 to play.

Nebraska did not give up, trimming the lead to as little as four at 68-64 with 14 second remaining, but Michigan State hit 9-of-10 free throws down the stretch to seal their 11th consecutive win. In all, MSU went 16-of-18 from the foul line in the win.

The Huskers return to action on Monday night, as Nebraska travels to Rutgers. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. (central) and will be carried on BTN and the Husker Sports Network.

Champaign - Ashtyn Veerbeek erupted for a career-high 19 points to lead four Huskers in double figures as Nebraska powered its way to a 77-67 Big Ten women's basketball road win at Illinois on Thursday night at the State Farm Center.

With the victory, Nebraska improved to 3-3 in the Big Ten and 7-9 overall, while Illinois slipped to 1-5 in the conference and 9-8 overall.

Veerbeek, whose previous career high was 14 points, matched her career best through three quarters and pumped in five straight points including Nebraska's biggest shot of the night with a three-pointer with 1:39 left to push Nebraska's lead to 69-59. The 6-2 forward from Sioux Center, Iowa, added eight rebounds and a block to propel the Huskers to their second Big Ten road win of the year.

Hannah Whitish, who finished with 12 points and seven assists without a turnover, helped the Huskers seal the win with four free throws in the final 1:30, while Leigha Jones and Taylor Kissinger each pitched in 10 points. Kate Cain added strong contributions with eight points and seven rebounds, while Sam Haiby added seven points, two assists and three steals off the bench.

Kayla Mershon, a freshman from Chanhassen, Minn., helped the Huskers get a win in her first career start by knocking down a first-half three and sealing the victory with Nebraska's final two points of the night at the line.

The Huskers, who led by as many as 14 points in both the first and fourth quarters, saw the Illini cut the margin to seven points with 2:35 left in the game, before Veerbeek buried a three to change the complexion of the game in the final two minutes.

It was Veerbeek's lone three of the contest and Nebraska's seventh of the game. The Huskers hit 31.8 percent of their threes (7-22), while Nebraska hit 47.2 percent (25-53) of its shots overall, while knocking down 20-of-28 (.714) of its free throws. NU forced 17 turnovers by Illinois and turned those into 15 points. Nebraska committed just 12 turnovers in the contest.

Illinois freshman Aerial Scott scored a career-high 23 points, including 4-of-9 threes, to keep the Illini within striking distance throughout the game after falling behind 19-5 midway through the first quarter. Alex Wittinger added a double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds, while Cierra Rice pitched in 11 points off the bench.

For the game, Illinois hit 39.1 percent (25-64) of its shots, including 29.2 percent (7-24) from three-point range. The Illini knocked down just 10-of-17 free throws, but out-rebounded the Huskers 40-32 on the night. However, Illinois was only able to convert 15 offensive rebounds into 13 second-chance points, while the Huskers got nine points of their five offensive boards on the night.

Nebraska jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead and built its biggest lead at 19-5 after Whitish's second three-pointer with 3:25 left in the quarter. But the Illini heated up and cut the margin to 25-17 at the end of the quarter, despite six straight points from Brown to end the period for the Big Red.

The Huskers pushed the margin back to 12 points at 32-20 after a Mershon three with 5:57 left, but Illinois closed out the quarter strong to cut the deficit to 36-29 at the half.

Nebraska hit 48.3 percent (14-29) of its first-half shots, including 5-of-14 threes (.357), after shooting 62.5 percent (10-16) in the first quarter, including 66.7 percent (4-6) from long range. The Huskers committed just four turnovers in the half, while forcing five by the Illini that Nebraska turned into seven points. Brown and Veerbeek led the Big Red with eight first-half points apiece, while Kissinger added seven and Whitish six.

The Fighting Illini were held to 35.3 percent (12-34) shooting, including 3-of-13 threes (.231). Illinois also went just 2-for-6 at the free throw line. Scott led Illinois with 12 points off the bench in the half, including a pair of threes. The Illini did out-rebound Nebraska, 21-18, in the half.

Huskers return to Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln on Sunday to square off with No. 23 Minnesota. Tip-off between the Big Red and Golden Gophers is set for 5 p.m., and tickets are available now at Huskers.com.

Kearney, Neb. – Wayne State transfer Alexis McAfee made a backdoor layup with three tenths of a second remaining in overtime to lift Washburn to a 62-60 win over Nebraska-Kearney Wednesday night in Topeka, Kan.

The Ichabods (11-4, 6-0) have won nine in a row to move into sole possession of first place in the MIAA while the Lopers fall to 10-6 (3-4) and to 2-3 in games decided by 10 points or less.

Both teams came in among the national leaders in scoring defense, allowing less than 59 points per game. Neither squad led by more than five points all night and there was an unprecedented 17 lead changes and 13 ties. UNK shot 50% (24 of 48) from the field against the stingy WU defense but also committed a season-high 26 turnovers and gave up 18 offensive rebounds. The 'Bods won despite shooting 35% (25 of 69) from the field but sunk eight threes and tallied 15 points off those 26 Loper miscues.

A three from the top of the key by freshman Maegan Holt (Council Bluffs, Ia.) tied things up at 60 with 32 seconds left in the extra session. The 'Bods tallied the first four points in overtime to grab a 60-56 lead but freshman reserve guard Aspen Jansa (Wahoo Bishop Neumann) went one of two at the free throw line with 2:03 left to start the comeback.

After Holt's second triple of the night, Washburn called a timeout to advance the ball past half court. Star guard Reagan Phelan drove the lane with seconds remaining and was surrounded by the UNK defense. However, McAfee went back door from the right wing to tally the winner. The 5-9 guard and Kansas native finished with nine points, four assists and three steals. Phelan had a team-high 13 points as well as six dimes and five thefts.

"I feel for our kids. They competed and played hard and did everything they could at the very end but Washburn made a play," said Loper assistant coach Devin Eighmey. "We do have some things to clean up. We didn't value basketball at times … we had 26 turnovers and lost by two."

The Lopers grabbed a 55-53 lead with 2:39 remaining in regulation after a layup by Crofton sophomore Kelsey Sanger. WU sunk about a minute later to regain the lead but Sanger went one of two at the line with 18 seconds left to knot things up once more. The 'Bods had two chances to win in the final five seconds but two shots didn't drop.

"Credit to them. They pressured us on the wing and got after us in the post in the second half," said Eighmey. "To give that much effort and to lose by two in overtime on a back cut with three tenths of a second left is tough. We'll learn from this and regroup."    

Four Loper starters reached double figures, led by Sanger and Elkhorn freshman post Brooke Carlson who had 16 apiece. They combined to go 12 of 22 from the field and also managed 13 rebounds, five assists and five steals. Next, Holt had 12 and four boards with South Dakota freshman guard Klaire Kirsch supplying 10 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Finally, Sanger, Holt and Kirsch each logged at least 40 minutes.

Besides Phelan and McAfee, Washburn got 12 points and three offensive caroms from Idaho State post transfer Nicole Murugarren and nine points in 17 minutes from Austin Peay State (Tenn.) transfer Shelbe Pggie.

UNK faces Emporia State on Sunday afternoon. The Hornets (12-4, 3-3) hit a three with 17 seconds left to hand No. 3 Fort Hays State its first loss of the year, 54-51.

Kearney, Neb. – Freshman reserve post Sevon Witt tallied a game-high 23 points in 20 minutes and the Washburn Ichabods got off to a fast start to beat Nebraska-Kearney, 89-58, Wednesday night in Topeka, Kan.

The Ichabods (12-3, 5-1) improve to 8-0 in Lee Arena while the Lopers fall to 5-11 (0-7).

UNK got a free throw from Bellevue junior forward AJ Jackson two minutes into the game to lead 1-0 but Washburn scored the next 12 points. The Lopers misfired on 11 of its first 12 shots as the 'Bods opened up leads of 17-7 and 28-11. The teams combined to go just 1 of 17 from the three point line in the first half but WU tallied 28 points in the paint as well as 16 points off 11 Loper turnovers to lead 34-18 at the intermission. 

A couple of threes from Iowa junior forward Kyle Juhl helped UNK hang around early in the second half but the 'Bods went on a 13-6 run to open up a 58-38 lead with 8:54 to play. Fittingly, Witt capped things with two free throws. A 6-7, 220 freshman from Raytown, Mo., he came in averaging 7.1 points per game (85 points on the season) but made 9 of 11 shots and 5 of 8 free throws to reach his season-high total. Witt also had five rebounds, two blocks and two steals.

All toll, Washburn tallied 59 of its points in the paint and had a 45-35 rebounding margin. Making just 6 of 21 three point shots, the 'Bods garnered 21 points off 15 UNK turnovers and had 51 bench points.

Besides Witt's unlikely heroics, WU got 10 points from freshman reserve guard Jalen Lewis and 16 points and eight boards from senior starting guard Tyas Martin. Senior guard Javion Blake, averaging just over 20 points per game, finished with a season-low five in 21 minutes of work.

Shooting 32% on the night, UNK saw Juhl and Texas junior guard Chase Winchester score 12 apiece. The duo combined to go 6 of 11 from behind the arc and also provided seven rebounds, four assists and four steals. Finally, Aurora freshman reserve Henry Penner got hot late and tallied eight points and six rebounds.

Kearney visits Emporia State (7-8, 2-4) Sunday afternoon. The Hornets led Fort Hays State 39-26 at the half tonight but fell by an 82-71 score.
