Colorado (9-16, 1-10) got a three-point play from Cory Higgins, an Austin Dufault basket and another Higgins jumper to cut the Nebraska lead to 39-36 with 4:07 left.

But Dagunduro's field goal and a three-point play gave the Huskers a 44-38 lead with 2:25 remaining. Neither team scored another field goal in the game.

Nebraska ended the game 16 for 46 from the floor for 35 percent, while Colorado shot 31 percent.
