LINCOLN, Neb. -- Lance Jeter scored 16 points and Nebraska broke a three-game losing streak with a 65-54 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday night.
The Cornhuskers (16-8, 4-6 Big 12) won for the first time in five meetings with the Cowboys.
Oklahoma State (16-8, 4-6), coming off back-to-back home wins over Missouri and Oklahoma, is 0-5 in Big 12 road games. The Cowboys now play three straight against nationally-ranked opponents: Texas, Texas A&M and Kansas.
The Cowboys overcame big deficits to beat Oklahoma, Kansas State and Iowa State, but they couldn't pull off a comeback against Nebraska, shooting 31 percent in the second half and 36 percent for the game.
Is there a link between recruiting wins and success? Kentucky and LSU are among teams that have recruited well, but haven't reached their expectations.
Purdue junior forward Vincent Edwards, who has averaged 19.0 points in the NCAA tournament, has decided not to pursue the NBA for now.
Kansas-Kentucky is not only the headliner of the Big 12/SEC Challenge but arguably the most intriguing. We rank all the games in the January event.
