Huskers Fall To Michigan

By Chase Williams. CREATED Jan 9, 2013

Ann Arbor, MI - Nebraska battled No. 2 Michigan for nearly all of 40 minutes, but the Wolverines pulled away down the stretch for a 62-47 victory Wednesday night.

Ray Gallegos led all scorers with 19 points for the Huskers, including four 3-pointers, but All-American Trey Burke’s 18 points led four Michigan players in double figures as the Wolverines remained unbeaten.

Nebraska (9-7, 0-3 Big Ten) held the Wolverines to a season-low 38.9 percent shooting in holding Michigan 20 points below its season average in another strong defensive effort.

Michigan, which averaged 94.5 points in its first two Big Ten wins, was held to a season-low scoring output, but used strong rebounding to ward off a pesky Husker team.

Michigan (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) had a 47-30 advantage on the boards and held Nebraska to 33.9 percent shooting.
