NEBRASKA 75, NEBRASKA OMAHA 62
By KENT WOLGAMOTT
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Dylan Talley scored 14 of his career-high
22 points in the second half to lead Nebraska past
Nebraska-Omaha 75-62 in the first Division I match-up between
the two schools.
Nebraska (3-0) trailed hot-shooting Nebraska-Omaha 46-44 after
Kaong Dolouny's tip-in with 15:45 remaining. The Mavericks had
hit 61 percent of their shots to that point, but then went cold.
A pair of Andre Almeida inside baskets started a 14-2 Nebraska
run that put the Huskers up 58-48 on Talley's layup with 8:47
left. After trading baskets, the Cornhuskers sealed the win with
7-0 run capped by Benny Parker's breakaway layup that made the
score 75-60 with 44 seconds left.
Nebraska-Omaha (1-4) went more than 7 minutes without a field
goal during the first Nebraska run. The Mavericks scored just 16
points in the final 15:45.
