Nebraska defeats Iowa State in last second, 63-62
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)—Lance Jeter made the second of two free throws with four-tenths of a second left to give Nebraska a 63-62 victory over Iowa State in their Big 12 opener Saturday night, extending the Cornhuskers’ win streak to 11 games.
Jeter went to the line after stripping the ball from Diante Garrett. Jeter raced the other way and was fouled by Melvin Ejim as he went for the layup just before the final buzzer.
Jeter’s first free throw curled around the rim and fell off. He nailed the second. The Cornhuskers (13-2, 1-0) broke up Jake Anderson’s long inbounds pass, then celebrated.
Caleb Walker matched his season high with 13 points for Nebraska. Toney McCray added 12 and Jeter 10.
Garrett had 18 points and Ejim 12 for Iowa State (13-3, 0-1), which had a seven-game win streak end.
