The Huskers picked up their first-ever Big Ten win, a 70-58 final over Penn State Wednesday night at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The Huskers shot 55 percent on the night and got to the free throw line a season-high 29 times against the Nittany Lions as they snapped a four-game losing streak in what Doc Sadler said absolutely was a “must win.”
Bo Spencer led Nebraska with 19 points. Spencer was 10-of-12 from the free throw line and 4-of-8 from the field while also dishing out a game-high five assists. Seniors Toney McCray (13 points) and Caleb Walker (12 points) joined Spencer in double figures, while junior Dylan Talley came off the bench to score 12 points and grab five rebounds.
Penn State shot just 33 percent from the field, including just 3-of-24 from three point range.
