Shavon Shields scored 19 points, Brandon Ubel added 16 points and eight rebounds and Nebraska beat Purdue 57-55 Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten tournament,
The Cornhuskers (15-17) hung on after Purdue's Terone Johnson missed two shots in the closing seconds and will meet No. 10 Ohio State in the quarterfinals. Pregame coverage begins at 4:30pm on Newsradio 1110 KFAB.
They started the second half on a 9-0 run to turn a two-point lead into a 39-28 advantage and withstood a late push by the Boilermakers (15-17) to come away with a surprising victory.
It was 54-53 after Purdue's D.J. Byrd made a 3-pointer with 40 seconds left. Nebraska's Ray Gallegos then made the first free throw and missed the second, but the Cornhuskers recovered the ball.
Ubel then hit the second foul shot after missing the first to make it 56-53 with 28.6 seconds left. Byrd put back a missed 3 by Ronnie Johnson to pull Purdue within one with 13 seconds left.
Gallegos then made 1 of 2 free throws to make it a two-point game. Purdue had one last chance but Johnson missed two shots in the lane and Gallegos grabbed the rebound to secure the win.
Nebraska and the Big Ten Network have announced that the Huskers’ spring game on Saturday, April 6 will be televised live by the network. Kickoff for the contest is set for 2 p.m. CT at Memorial Stadium.
BTN2Go will also provide live coverage of the spring football game. BTN’s spring football coverage includes the Big Ten Football Report every Wednesday and Saturday nights beginning April 10.
This year marks the first time BTN will televise Nebraska’s spring game live on the network. Last year’s game was scheduled for a same-day tape-delay telecast, but the contest was canceled because of weather.
The Husker Sports Network will also carry the spring game live on many of its radio affiliates, and the contest can also be heard worldwide through Huskers.com.
Reserved tickets for the Red-White Spring Game remain on sale at Huskers.com or by calling the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office at 800-8-BIG-RED. Tickets are $10 each. Nebraska’s spring game drew at least 50,000 fans each year from 2004 to 2011, prior to last year’s cancellation.
Career scoring leader Dave Hoppen heads the five-man All-Devaney Center team as voted on by Nebraska basketball fans.
The team was introduced at halftime of Wednesday night's Minnesota-Nebraska game, the last college basketball game to be played at the Devaney Center. The Cornhuskers move to the new Pinnacle Bank Arena just west of campus next season.
Hoppen played from 1982 to 1986 and was named All-Big Eight three times.
Joining him on the All-Devaney team were Tyronn Lue (1995-98), Venson Hamilton (1995-99), Eric Piatkowski (1990-94) and Erick Strickland (1992-96).
Kent Pavelka has been NU basketball's play-by-play man for most of the Devaney Center's 37 years. He announced the first game and he will announce tonight's game starting at 7:04 here on 1110 KFAB. Here is one of the greatest moments at the Devaney Center, the 1983 victory over TCU that sent the Huskers to the N.I.T. Final Four in New York.
