Huskers knock off Badgers, 63-59

Wisconsin: Wisconsin has won every game in which it has scored more than 70 points this season. He was shooting 36.2 percent from the field and 50 percent on free throws.

After the Davison's three, the Badgers went on a mini-run themselves, shortening their ten point deficit to just four points at the half.

"If we don't have Jordy, we might not win the game". As a team, Wisconsin is scoring 69.6 points per game on 47% shooting from the field, 35.3% from behind the arc and 69.7% from the foul line this season. He did a lot of smart things for us. "Not the usual suspects. Some other guys came to save the day".

The Badgers suffered their 2nd straight loss to fall to 9-9 on the season, 2-3 in the Big Ten.

Location: Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb. Ethan Happ added 10 points and 10 rebounds but committed 7 turnovers. "We'll get him going". Davison added 15 points and Pritzl scored 10.

The Huskers pushed the lead back up to 13 points early in the second half, and were still up nine with 3:18 left before a ragged ending allowed Wisconsin to close to 62-59 with two seconds left.

"They're a slow-paced team, and we wanted to try to do something", Palmer said.

"We know our margin for error is extremely thin", said Gard.

"Like coach probably told you guys, he just told me to stick with it and my teammates have been great with me, being patient", Tshimanga said.

The loss puts the Badgers at a serious disadvantage, if they weren't already there, at making the NCAA Tournament.

Nebraska could never shake the Badgers however, as Happ helped the Badgers chip away the lead and brought Wisconsin within five with just over four minutes to go. Iverson had a steal immediately after a Pritzl turnover and a nice lay-in, which was followed by a Happ dunk.

Ethan Happ led Wisconsin (9-9 overall, 2-2 Big Ten) with 19 points and 11 rebounds.

Why was Tshimanga markedly better all of a sudden? You just feel like you need a shower afterwards. I mean, Greg (Gard) is doing a great job. "I've just been sticking with it, getting in the gym, getting extra reps".

Miles, like some of his players, was happy to win but unhappy with the path to get there. "I think we did a good job of that".

"And then, some of the guys and their performances". I think all the computers had it as a 1-, 2- or 3-point game.

Glynn Watson's up-and-down season continued with another quiet night for the junior point guard, as he managed just three points at the free-throw line and missed all six of his shots from the field. Center Jordy Tshimanga, who had struggled all season mightily, posted his best game of the year with a season-high nine points and six rebounds in 18 minutes of work. A missed 3-pointer by Cornhuskers reserve Anton Gill fell into the hands of teammate Isaiah Roby, who had fallen onto the floor before the shot. He passed to Gill again, who this time swished the 3 for a 46-38 lead.

"We need to tighten up", head coach Tim Miles said.
