Wisconsin held Nebraska to just one field goal in the final six minutes, closing on a 10-3 spurt to pull out a 47-41 win in the Huskers first Big Ten home game of the year. The Huskers drop to 0-2 in conference play. Wisconsin went on a 7-0 run with just under six minutes to play. Ryan Evans had five of his 10 points in the decisive run, as his jumper gave UW a 44-38 lead with 1:52 left.
Nebraska pulled to 44-41, on a three-pointer from Brandon Ubel with 1:00 left, but Traevon Jackson hit a jumper on the Badgers’ next possession to keep the game at two possessions. Ubel was one of three Huskers to finish in double figures, finishing with 10 points and eight rebounds before fouling out. Dylan Talley and Ray Gallegos had 12 points apiece, but the Huskers went just 2-of-12 from 3-point range.
The Huskers return to action Wednesday night, as they travel to No. 2 Michigan.
