Lincoln, NE (SportsNetwork.com) - Led by 17 points and 10 rebounds from Shavon Shields, the Nebraska Cornhuskers downed the Northwestern Wildcats, 54-47, in a Big Ten Conference bout at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

For the Cornhuskers (17-11, 9-7 Big Ten), Walter Pitchford and Terran Petteway each chipped in with 10 points.
