Huskers Game Plan Wins

Huskers Perfect Game Plan Wins

by: Steven Stremming

Nebraska Head Coach worked a game plan to perfection as his Huskers claimed their first win over a number one since 1982, (when the Huskers downed Missouri 67 to 51), by beating the Purdue Boilermakers 88 to 72.

Keisei Tominaga kept up his onslaught against Indiana B1G Ten based teams with a team leading 19 points on a variety of three-point shots from across the floor.

The Huskers built up an eleven-point lead at the break and held off two second half Purdue runs to win the game.

Purdue started the game hot by nailing their first four three-pointers in the second half to cut the margin to one at 51 to 50 by Heide and Loyer and free throws by Braden Smith.

The Huskers would go on their own run with a fourteen to two run and to expand the lead on a C J Wilcher on a shot from behind the arc.

The Huskers would end the game on a twenty to ten run.

Purdue went scoreless for nearly the last four minutes in the first half, while Nebraska scored two three-pointers from Tominaga and a seven point straight run by Sam Hoiberg.

The Huskers were led by Tominaga’s 19, sturdy postman Reink Mast 18, Wilcher 16 and Juwan Gray with 12.

Mason Gillis led the Boilers with 16, Edey 15, Loyer 13 and Smith and Lance Jones ten points apiece.

The key in the game was when the Boilers tallied over 12 turnovers in the game.
