Husker Men Fall To Creighton
Posted: 07 December, 2012
LINCOLN - Nebraska's cold-shooting night proved costly, as the Huskers dropped a 64-42 decision to No. 16 Creighton last night at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
The Bluejays (8-1) jumped out to a 28-17 halftime lead and were in control for much of the night. All-American Doug McDermott led all scorers with 27 points for the Bluejays, while Gregory Echenique had 12 points and 12 rebounds for Creighton, which snapped the Huskers' two-game win streak and picked up its first win in Lincoln since 2004. Seniors Dylan Talley and Brandon Ubel led the Huskers (6-2) with 14 and 10 points respectively, while Ubel grabbed eight boards in a losing effort.
