Lincoln – Glynn Watson had 14 of his 18 points in the second half, but Nebraska fell to Ohio State, 70-60, at Pinnacle Bank Arena Saturday afternoon.

Watson, who moved into 13th place on Nebraska’s career scoring chart, had 18 points, while James Palmer Jr. added 19 for the Huskers, who fell to 13-7 overall and 3-6 in Big Ten play.

Nebraska could not overcome a cold shooting afternoon, hitting just 36 percent from the field against the Buckeyes (13-6, 3-5 Big Ten).

Luther Muhammad had a career-high 24 points to lead three OSU players in double figures, including six points in a crucial 12-2 second half run. This run stretched the lead to 56-43 after a C.J. Jackson 3-pointer with 8:14 remaining after Nebraska pulled to within 44-41.

The Huskers cut the OSU deficit to six on two occasions, the last being 64-58 after a Palmer basket with 44 seconds left, but the Buckeyes hit 6-of-8 free throws to hold the Huskers at bay.

Early on, Nebraska got off to a quick start, as 3-pointers from Palmer Jr. and Isaiah Roby helped NU build an early 8-2 lead after a Watson layup just 1:56 into the game. The Buckeyes responded with a seven unanswered points to regain the lead at 9-8 after a Muhammad basket.

Leading 13-12, the Huskers ran off six straight points to build its largest lead at 19-12 after a Copeland jumper with 9:50 left in the half. The Huskers could not stretch the lead, allowing OSU to come back and close the half on a 12-2 run to build a 29-24 halftime lead.

The Huskers quickly erased the five-point deficit after halftime with an Isaac Copeland short corner 3-pointer and a Tanner Borchardt layup to tie the game at 29. NU took a 38-36 lead with 15:35 remaining after a pair of Palmer free throws, but this would be the last time Tim Miles’ group would lead. NU cut 44-38 deficit to three after a pair of free throws from Watson and another from Tanner Borchardt after a hook and hold call on Caleb Wesson, but could not pull closer.

The Huskers are back in action on Tuesday evening, as they host Wisconsin. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on BTN. It will also be carried on the Husker Sports Network.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska forward Isaac Copeland is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee early in the second half against Ohio State.

Copeland landed awkwardly after colliding with an Ohio State player under the Nebraska basket early in the second half of the Cornhuskers' 70-60 loss Saturday. The injury was revealed in a MRI done after the game.

The senior from Raleigh, North Carolina, started the first 20 games. He averaged 14 points, 5.4 rebounds and one block per game. He has started all 53 games since arriving at Nebraska two seasons ago and, including his two-plus years at Georgetown, has totaled over 1,300 points and 600 rebounds.

NORTH PLATTE – The North Platte Community College men’s basketball team won their 10th straight as they withstood a late charge by Western Nebraska Community College in earning an 81-74 Region IX South sub-region victory Friday night in North Platte.
                The loss drops WNCC to 16-6 overall and 4-1 in sub-region play. North Platte moves to 15-1 and 4-0 in sub-region
                The contest was a battle between the South sub-region leaders. There were 12 lead changes and four ties in the contest.
                WBCC led twice in the first half, the first at 20-18 after a Dru Kuxhausen 3-pointer. North Platte came back and hit a trey of their own. Kuxhausen responded right back with a deuce for a 22-21 lead. The Knights grabbed a 28-24 lead and led 31-26 before the Cougars knotted the game on a Jervay Green 3-pointer at 31. North Platte went on to lead at intermission 42-38.
                The second half was a back and forth 20-minute half. WNCC led three times in the half. The Cougars trailed 50-42 but came back to grab a 55-54 lead after a Henry Tanksley dunk and Martin Roub 3-pointers.
                It was short-lived with North Platte grabbing a 58-55 lead. Green came back with two straight buckets to put the Cougars back in front 59-58. After a bucket by North Platte, Kuxhausen drained a trey for a 62-60 lead. After that, the Knights went on a 15-1 run to lead 75-63.
                WNCC didn’t quite with two minutes to play, outscoring North Platte 9-2 to come within five, 77-72. Clutch free throw shooting down the stretch was the difference to seal the win for North Platte.
                WNCC shot 46 percent from the field and were 9 of 33 from beyond the arc. North Platte shot 49 percent and were 4 of 12 from the 3-point line. The difference in the contest was free throw shooting. WNCC was just 7 of 12 while North Platte was 19 of 26.
                The Knights also out-rebounded WNCC 42-30. North Platte’s Jakub Karwowski led both teams from the glass with 13 boards. WNCC was led by Martin Roub with seven points.
                WNCC had just three players in double figures. Green led all scorers with 27 points. Green also pulled down five boards and had four steals. Kuxhausen tossed in 18 points with four 3-pointers. Roub finished with 12 points and two treys.
                North Platte was led by Tim Johnson with 20 points. Johnson was a perfect 12 of 12 from the charity stripe. Da’May Jones tossed in 14, while Courtney Murrell had 14.
                WNCC, 16-6, will have a week off before playing again when they host Trinidad Trinidad State Junior College on Sunday, Feb. 3. Game times for the TSJC contest have been changed to avoid the Super Bowl. The Cougar women will face Trinidad at noon while the men take to the court at 2 p.m.

The Western Nebraska Community College men’s basketball buried 19 3-pointers in rolling to an 123-86 win over McCook Community College Tuesday night at Cougar Palace in a Region IX South sub-region contest.
                It was WNCC’s 16th win of the season but more importantly moves the Cougars to 4-0 in the sub-region.
                The 123 points scored was highlighted by 19 3-pointers on the day. The Cougars shot 57 percent from beyond the arc. Dru Kuxhausen and Martin Roub each tallied six 3-pointers, while Jervay Green and TJ O’Connor each had three treys.
                WNCC coach Cory Fehringer said it was a good win for his team.
                “We definitely had a better first half,” Fehringer said. “I wasn’t thrilled with our defensive intensity and our rebound effort, but I love to see over 20 assists. I just enjoy seeing the guys have great joy sharing the basketball and playing together. Also, our fans are always awesome and it is the best place to play in junior college in my opinion.”
                WNCC only trailed once in the contest at 5-3. WNCC build early 9-point leads and led by 11, 33-22 at one time. McCook battled back to within six, 39-33 on a Peanut Cunningham old-fashioned 3-point play. WNCC closed out the half on a 17-11 run to lead 56-44 at intermission.
                WNCC’s offense never let up in the second half as the Cougars outscored McCook 67-42 in the second 20 minutes. The Cougars led 66-51 and then turned on the afterburners in jumping to a 23-point advantage, 76-53 on a Marquis White bucket. The Cougars continued hitting buckets, and hit the century mark on a Green 3-pointer at 102-72.
                McCook came back to go on an 8-0 run to trail 107-83 before the Cougars went on a 16-1 run led from two 3-pointers from TJ O’Connor for the win.
                WNCC had five players finish in double figures. Green led all scorers with 29 points with three 3-pointers, eight rebounds, and seven assists. Kuxhausen tallied 28 points with six treys, 6-of-6 from the free throw line, and three assists and steals.
                Roub tallied 24 points with six treys and five assists. O’Connor and White each had 11 points. O’Connor tallied three treys, while White had five assists.
                WNCC, 16-5, will be back in action Friday when they travel to take on North Platte Community College in a battle of sub-region unbeaten. North Platte picked up an 80-78 win over Northeastern Junior College to go to 14-1 on the season and 3-0 in sub-region play.
                “North Platte is a little difficult to begin with and it will be a little bit more difficult with Bryce Sanchious [out],” he said. “Coach [Kevin] O’Connor’s team will play hard and rebound. We can’t have that many mistakes. It will be whoever had the fewest margin of errors throughout the night.”

Western Nebraska Community College women’s basketball team had three players score over 20 points and the Cougar women used a strong first half in registering a 98-63 win over McCook Community College in a Region IX South sub-region contest Tuesday night at Cougar Palace.         

                The win was the Cougars 17th of the season but more importantly, moved the Cougars to 4-0 in sub-region play.

                Tishara Morehouse and Taylor Joplin each finished with 24 points, while Merle Wiehl tallied 21. Wiehl now needs only five points to set the career scoring record of 1.026 set in 1983 by Penny Mallet. The Cougar women will next be in action Monday night when they host Casper College at 6 p.m.

                WNCC head coach Chad Gibney said the team had a strong first half and it was a good team win.

                “It was a huge win for us. McCook is a very good basketball team,” Gibney said. “We set the tone early and took it to them with our aggressiveness. I thought we did an excellent job on the glass. I thought our defensive pressure really stifled them.”

                Gibney said they had good balanced scoring and they shared the ball.

                “We had some great performances tonight,” he said. “Can’t say enough of how our team played tonight to be able to knock off a really good basketball team.”

                The contest was billed to be an offensive showcase as both WNCC and McCook are ranked in the top six nationally in scoring.

                The game started out that way, too, as Mccook grabbed a 5-4 lead on an Anna Sanjuan 3-pointer. It was then the Cougars defensive pressure stepped up, going on a 19-0 run to lead 23-5. The run included a variety of players contributing from Wiehl getting back-to-back buckets, to Morehouse and R’Manie Pulling burying consecutive 3-pointers. WNCC led 28-9 after one period.

                WNCC continued the defensive intensity in the second quarter, opening the period on a 9-0 run for a 37-9 lead and raced to a 49-22 halftime lead.

                Any hopes of a McCook comeback in the third quarter was quickly erased as WNCC put together 6-0 and 9-0 consistently in outscoring the Indians 37-17 in the period. WNCC led late in the period 86-35 before McCook scored the final four points to cut the lead to 86-39 after three.

                McCook outscored WNCC 24-12 in the fourth quarter, but by then the Cougars had salted away the victory after Yaidelis Torres buried a 3-pointer for a 94-49 lead.

                WNCC had eight players hit the scoring column. Gibney said a lot of people game up big, whether scoring, rebounding, or providing an assist.

                “It certainly is a team win,” he said.

                Morehouse tallied 24 points on 10 of 17 shooting from the floor with three 3-pointers. She also had four rebounds, four steals, and two assists.

                Joplin tallied her 24 points on two treys, 6 of 6 shooting from the free throw line, while also pulling down five rebounds.

                Wiehl finished with 21 points on 10 of 19 shooting. Wiehl had an all-around game leading the team with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, and did not commit a turnover.

                Pulling tallied eight points with four assists, while Yuliyana Valcheva had eight points with five rebounds.

                Torres finished with seven points and two treys on the night.

                WNCC will have a week off before the rematch with Casper. In the first meeting on January 7, Casper topped the Cougars 83-63. Gibney said they are will be ready.

                “We are excited to play Casper again,” he said. “They are the defending champs. They are undefeated in league and it will be a great test for us.”
