LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 24 points and Thomas Bryant added 19 to lead Indiana in a 79-69 victory over Nebraska on Saturday.
Ferrell and Bryant combined to make nine of their first 11 shots after halftime as the Hoosiers (12-3, 2-0 Big Ten) turned a three-point halftime deficit into a 12-point lead and extended their winning streak to seven games.
Indiana went ahead for good, 47-46, when Ferrell beat the shot clock with a jumper from the wing. He followed with a 3-pointer and then went the length of the court for a layup to make it 55-49. He beat the shot clock again with a 3-pointer, and O.G. Anunoby scored back-to-back baskets to finish a 17-5 spurt and put the Hoosiers up 62-51.
Nebraska (8-7, 0-2) got 16 points apiece from Andrew White III and Jack McVeigh and 10 each from Shavon Shields and Benny Parker.
