Buie controls Northwestern, Nebraska, and fourth seed in Big Ten – Chicago Tribune


EVANSTON, Illinois (AP) — Boo Buie scored 22 points and Brooks Barnhizer had a double-double as Northwestern beat Nebraska 80-68 on Wednesday.

Buie now has 1,978 career points, which is second-most in Northwestern history and trails only John Shurna’s 2,038 career points for the school career record.

Barnhizer had 14 points, 10 rebounds, Ryan Langborg had 18 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and did not commit a turnover.

Reserve Nick Martinelli added 15 points for the Wildcats (16-7, 7-5), who have won nine of their last 10 home games in the Big Ten; this was his best win between 1965 and 1967.

Northwestern placed fourth in the conference.

Juwan Gary scored 15 points for Nebraska (16-8, 6-7). Brice Williams had 13 points and 10 rebounds, while substitute Jamarques Lawrence had 12 and Keisei Tominaga had 11 for the Cornhuskers.

Langborg hit a 3-pointer following a layup by Nebraska’s CJ Wilcher to give the Wildcats a 25-15 lead with 9:55 before halftime, and Northwestern stayed ahead by double digits. They went into the halftime leading 47-31, and with Nick Martinelli’s layup, they closed the gap by the first 20 points to 64-43 with 9:15 left.

Tominaga made a pair of foul shots with 1:11 left to put the Cornhuskers within single digits (75-66), but Northwestern secured the score by going 5-of-6 in the final 64 seconds.

Nebraska will host Michigan on Saturday.

The Wildcats will host Penn State on Sunday.
