Huskers Hold On in Second Half, Beat Spartans

LINCOLN -- Nebraska men's basketball built a 14-point first-half lead and topped Michigan State, 79-77, on Saturday. Terran Petteway scored a season-high 32 points in the victory. The Huskers have won four of their last five games.

UNL's halftime advantage ballooned to 17 in the second half. That got trimmed down to four with 54 seconds left. Shavon Shields had his inbound stolen, but MSU didn't get a clean shot off in the final seconds.

Petteway finished the night 10-17 from the field. It's the tenth time this season he's tallied more than 20 points.

Attendees, coaches and players wore yellow "Avery Strong" shits during the game in support of Avery Harriman, the seven-year-old son of Nebraska Assistant Coach Chris Harriman. The younger Harriman has been battling leukemia. The event was to raise awareness for the National Marrow Donor Program.

Nebraska MBB Looks to Make it 4 of 5 Against MSU

LINCOLN -- Nebraska men's basketball started Big Ten play 0-2, but things have changed since then.

A win on Saturday and the Huskers would win their fourth game in five tries and defense may be the reason why. In its three conference games, UNL has not let a team surpass 49 points. 

Tip-off in Lincoln is scheduled for 3:00 PM on ESPN. This is the Nebraska's only Saturday game in confence play.
