College Hoops: CU Wins, NU and CCC Play Tonight

In college basketball, Ryan Nemhard’s 10-foot floater at the buzzer lifted Creighton to a 66-64 victory over Southern Illinois in the third-place game at the Paradise Jam. 

The Bluejays’ “Ryan Express” combined for 39 points, as Kalkbrenner had 14, Hawkins had 13 and Nembhard – who was named Big East Freshman of the Week yesterday for the second straight week – added 12.  CU is now 5-1 and will host SIU Edwardsville on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, the Nebraska men are seeking their third straight win tonight.  The 3-2 Huskers host 1-3 Tennessee State at 8 p.m. 

Both CCC basketball clubs will host McCook CC today.  The women’s game tips off at 5:30 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. men’s tilt at the Raider Fieldhouse.
