(Neb.)- No. 13 Purdue Goes Old-School To Roll Past Nebraska 74-62

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 01/06/2018 10:04 PM
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Vincent Edwards scored 21 points and Isaac Haas added 14 to lead No. 13 Purdue past Nebraska 74-62 on Saturday for its 11th consecutive win.
 
The Boilermakers (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) extended their home-court winning streak to 18 and won their 10th straight home game against a conference foe.
 
James Palmer Jr. finished with 22 points and Isaac Copeland had 16 to lead the Cornhuskers (11-6, 2-2), whose four-game winning streak ended.
 
 It was never really close, though.
 
Purdue started fast, taking a 10-2 lead less than three minutes into the game and spent most of the first half pulling away. The Boilermakers extended the lead to 33-20 with 5:24 left, and it was only then that the Cornhuskers steadied themselves.
 
Nebraska cut the deficit to seven three times before Dakota Mathias' 3-pointer gave Purdue a 41-31 halftime lead.
 
Matt Haarms' layup with 14:05 to go made it 47-33 and after Nebraska closed the deficit to nine, the Boilermakers closed it out with an 11-3 run.
 
Nebraska never got closer after Purdue's opening flurry.
