LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska caught a break in the final seconds - maybe even two - and now its longest losing streak in four years is over.
James Palmer made two free throws after Amir Coffey was called for a questionable foul with 1.1 seconds left, allowing the Cornhuskers to beat Minnesota 62-61 Wednesday night for their first win in eight games.
"It definitely feels good for us," Palmer said. "We were working hard. We lost seven in a row, but even in practice we were going hard. We wanted to focus, come out with a defensive mentality. Thanks to the fans for really showing support tonight. We appreciate it."
