(BLOOMINGTON, IN) – The Indiana Hoosiers suffered their third straight loss and first loss at home this season as they fell to Nebraska 66-51.
The Cornhuskers led wire-to-wire and were up by as much as 17 points in the first half as Indiana scored just nine points in the first 15:15 of the game.
Glynn Watson Jr. led Nebraska with 15 points while Isaac Copeland Jr. added 14. The Cornhuskers shot 45-percent from the field and forced the Hoosiers into 13 turnovers and only gave up two 3-pointers.
For Indiana, Romeo Langford scored a game-high 18 points while Juwan Morgan had 17 points, eight rebounds and three blocks.
“That was probably the most disappointing game we’ve played as a team this season,” coach Archie Miller said. “We didn’t have any energy, any pop, either end of the floor. Offensively we were just horrendous in the first half.”
The Hoosiers fall to 12-5 and are 3-3 in conference play. They’ll try to snap their losing streak on Saturday when they visit the archrival Purdue Boilermakers.
