It’s no beauty show at the Devaney Center after 20 minutes, but Creighton will take the result.

The Bluejays lead Nebraska at halftime 28-17. The Huskers scored only four baskets in the final 13 minutes of the half.

Doug McDermott leads CU with nine points but is only 3 of 9 from the field and has committed two turnovers. Ray Gallegos has five points for Nebraska.
