WHAT HAPPENED: Indiana rallied back from a double-digit deficit, but then lost all of the ground it had gained in a 70-60 loss to Nebraska in front of 17,472 at Assembly Hall on Senior Night.
The Hoosiers fell to 17-13 overall, 7-10 in the Big Ten. Nebraska improved to 18-11, 10-7.
Indiana fell behind by double digits in the first half and trailed 48-38 with 14:09 to go in the second half. They went on a 14-4 run to erase that advantage, however, tying the game at 52-52. However, they would go on to miss five shots that could have given them the lead over the next five minutes and two more that could have tied the game once they fell behind 59-56 with 3:46 remaining.
A layup by IU freshman forward Devin Davis made it 59-58 with 2:30 to go, but Nebraska’s Walter Pitchford hit a 3-pointer on the next possession to make it 62-58 and Indiana never made it a one-possession game after that. They went stagnant on offense and Nebraska hit eight free throws in the final minute to seal the game.
