NCAA Game Summary - Nebraska at Illinois



(Wednesday, February 26th)

Final Score: Illinois 60, Nebraska 49

Champaign, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Kendrick Nunn led the way with 13 points, as the Illinois Fighting Illini bested the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 60-49, in a Big Ten Conference bout at the State Farm Center.

Nunn shot 3-of-4 from beyond the arc for Illinois (16-12, 5-10 Big Ten), winners of two straight. Rayvonte Rice and Malcolm Hill each scored 10 points for the hosts, with Rice adding nine rebounds and four steals to his performance.

For Nebraska (16-11, 8-7), which snapped a five-game winning streak, Terran Petteway netted 13 points and Shavon Shields had eight points and nine boards.

Neither team shot greater than 39 percent from the field in the first half, but Illinois was able to take a 27-24 lead into the break by draining four 3- pointers in the opening stanza, compared to zero for Nebraska.

The Cornhuskers took a brief lead early in the second half, but the Illini pieced together a 12-0 later in the frame to go ahead by 13 with less than 10 minutes to play, and their advantage was never threatened down the stretch.

Illinois forced the Cornhuskers into 15 turnovers, scoring 24 points off of those miscues.
