The Nebraska men’s basketball team led by double digits in the first half, but number 9 Wisconsin overcame a dreadful start to beat the Huskers 67-53 last night. 

In the Big Ten opener for both teams, the Badgers used a 14-0 first half run to take a one-point lead into halftime and scored 16 straight points in the second half to pull away from NU.  Nebraska fell to 4-4 on the season, while Wisconsin improved to 7-1. 

The Huskers will host number 19 Michigan on Christmas Day.  Friday’s game is set for 5 p.m.  The pre-game starts at 4 p.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK.
