Nebraska Rallies In Closing Minutes To Beat Maryland 67-65

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Tai Webster scored 18 points and Nebraska closed with a 14-0 run to rally past Maryland 67-65 Sunday, ending the Terrapins’ six-game winning streak.

The Cornhuskers trailed 65-53 with six minutes left before charging back behind Webster, who scored the game’s final seven points.

Maryland still had a chance to salvage the victory, but Melo Trimble fired up an air ball with five seconds left and clanged a shot off the rim just before the buzzer.

Trimble finished with 14 points on 5-for-15 shooting and had three turnovers.

Glynn Watson Jr. scored 17 for Nebraska (8-6, 2-0 Big Ten), off to its best start in the conference since the 2005-06 season.

It was the second straight comeback win for the Cornhuskers, who used a 54-point second half to pull off an upset at No. 16 Indiana on Wednesday.

Freshman Kevin Huerter scored a career-high 26 points for the Terrapins (13-2, 1-1). Maryland used a 17-0 run to apparently take control before inexplicably going ice cold.
