Nebraska ruins Senior Night in Bloomington

Walter Pitchford and Shavon Shields each scored 17 points Wednesday, and Nebraska's defense held off Indiana's second-half rally for a 70-60 victory.

The Cornhuskers (18-11, 10-7 Big Ten) have won seven of eight and this one strengthened their resume for the NCAA's selection committee. It's also the first time in six tries Nebraska has won in Bloomington.

Indiana (17-13, 7-10) was led by Troy Williams with 18 points and Will Sheehey with 13. But it wasn't enough to avoid a second straight Senior Night loss. Noah Vonleh missed his second straight game with inflammation in his left foot.

The Hoosiers never led, but they had chances after rallying to tie the score at 52 with 10:06 left.

They missed all five shots that would have given them the lead. Nebraska capitalized with a 7-3 run that gave it a 59-55 lead and made it hold up.
