LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Keisei Tominaga scored a career-high 30 points, Jamarques Lawrence scored five key points down the stretch, and Nebraska defeated Penn State 72-63 on Sunday, giving Cornhuskers coach Fred Hoiberg his 150th career victory.
The win moves Nebraska (11-13, 4-9 Big Ten) past last season's win total and matches last season's number of conference victories. The Cornhuskers had lost four in a row while chasing that elusive win.
Five players scored for Nebraska in an 11-0 run that gave the Cornhuskers a 26-13 lead near the 10-minute mark of the first half. Tominaga scored 15 points in the half and the Cornhuskers led 37-28 at the break.
