Maryland entered the second half at Nebraska with a two-point lead, but ended up chasing the Huskers the rest of the way thanks to 24 second-half points by Nebraska junior guard James Palmer Jr.

Despite scoring just two points in the first half, and making just one of six attempts, Palmer came out firing in the second half, leading the Nebraska offense and consistently thwarting Maryland's momentum. The guy seemed unstoppable. The Terps appeared to get another much-needed stop on the Huskers' next possession, but Nebraska sophomore forward Isaiah Roby grabbed an offensive rebound with 25 seconds remaining that began the Huskers' queue to the free-throw line.

Following the halftime break, Nebraska opened up a seven point lead due to a 13-4 run capped by a jump-shot from Palmer to take a 43-36 lead. First, Issac Copeland converted a three-point shot from the top of the key.

Nebraska comes into the matchup with Maryland looking for its 20th win of the season.

"I think we could have a few more road wins with a full roster", Turgeon said.

The Terps (17-11, 6-9) had a chance to take the lead with a minute to play, but Watson blocked Anthony Cowan Jr.'s 3-point try.

Huerter went to the line with 2.8 seconds left, and after making the first free throw, he intentionally missed the second.

Bruno Fernando led the Terps with 21 points and nine rebounds. "We keep competing out here and losing by three or four". That call got Huerter out of the game, and the Huskers went on a quick 9-2 spurt after Huerter exited.

Maryland: The Terps' fading NCAA Tournament hopes might have been dashed with their seventh straight road loss. If they want to make a push for an NCAA tournament bid, Mark Turgeon needs to find an answer fast. He scored his 1,000th career point on the first free throw and swished the second one to put the Huskers up two. Those impressive numbers are offset by a 1-7 road record, the lone victory in overtime at IL on December 3. "It means a lot to have 1,000 points, but it doesn't mean anything if we're not winning". NU has won a season-high six straight games, all in conference play.

"Definitely if I'm playing in big games like this, everybody likes playing in big games with a big crowd, and the crowd did a great job tonight helping us get a win", said Palmer, "I think we came out in the second half and proved that we can play anybody and come out with the win".

Down five points with just under three minutes to play, Fernando passed out of a double team, finding Darryl Morsell for a layup to cut the Nebraska lead to three.
