LANE | Indiana Comes Up Short Against Nebraska.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana's recent surge back toward the NCAA tournament bubble took a major hit with a 70-60 defeat to Nebraska at the Assembly Hall Wednesday night.  After trailing most of the game, Indiana rallied to draw even at 52 with Nebraska on a Will Sheehey three-pointer midway through the second half.  But the Hoosiers could never get the lead and it was the Cornhuskers who strengthened their tournament resume with a ten-point road win and a season sweep of IU.

Walter Pitchford and Shavon Shields each scored 17 for Nebraska (18-11, 10-7 Big Ten).  Indiana got a career-best 18 points from Freshman Troy Williams and Will Sheehey had 13 on his senior night, but it wasn't enough for the Hoosiers (17-13, 7-10).  Freshman Center Noah Vonleh missed his second straight game with inflamation in his left foot.

Indiana trailed by eight at halftime and couldn't overcome 36 percent shooting (22-60), including just 5-of-21 from the three-point line.  Yogi Ferrell made just 1-of-10 threes.

Indiana will close out the regular season on Saturday at Michigan with a 6 p.m. tipoff.
