Huskers surprise Aggies

Jorge Brian Diaz scored 16 points, and Nebraska held 13th-ranked Texas A&M to two field goals over the final 10 minutes in a 57-48 victory Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

The Cornhuskers used a 10-1 spurt to turn a 42-39 deficit into a 49-43 lead in the matchup of the league's top two defensive teams.

Brandon Richardson and Lance Jeter had 10 points apiece for Nebraska, which had lost three straight to the Aggies.

Nathan Walkup scored 13 points and Khris Middleton had 12 for Texas A&M. The Aggies shot 24 percent from the field in the second half and 39 percent for the game. They also committed 14 turnovers and made 6 of 14 free throws.

Nebraska's win, which came after a 72-71 loss at Texas Tech last Saturday, prompted students to rush the floor after the final buzzer.

The Huskers, down 31-24 at halftime, came back to take a 39-37 lead when Diaz scored from underneath with 10:14 left. The Aggies went ahead again on B.J. Holmes' 3-pointer from the corner, and Middleton's two free throws made it a three-point game.

Then Nebraska went on its decisive run.

Diaz's left-handed scoop and Jeter's end-to-end drive put Nebraska back on top 45-42 with less than 6 minutes to play, bringing the fans to their feet.

Brandon Richardson snaked through the lane for an easy basket and, after Eshaunte Jones went high to rebound Dash Harris' missed three-pointer, Jeter bulled in for another layup to make it 49-43 with 4:30 left.

The Aggies were up 34-31 early in the second half and had a chance to build on the lead when David Loubeau was intentionally fouled attempting a dunk. Toney McCray shoved Loubeau in the side, causing Loubeau to land hard next to the basket support.

Dash Harris shot the free throws and missed both as Loubeau recovered on the bench, and the Aggies couldn't convert when they retained possession.

The Aggies outrebounded the Huskers 34-26, including 19-9 in the first half.
