The Cornhuskers (11-12, 2-8 Big Ten) went on a 15-5 run and cut Ohio State's lead to 58-53 on David Rivers' free throws with 2:40 remaining. Following three Nebraska misses, Aaron Craft hit a pair of free throws with 56 seconds left to put the Buckeyes (17-4, 7-2 Big Ten) up seven.
Ohio State won the game at the free throw line. The Buckeyes made 23 of 28, including all 10 of their first-half attempts. Nebraska was just 4 of 5 from the line.
Ohio State won its third straight game and seventh in a row against Nebraska, including all four since the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten. The Buckeyes travel to No. 1 Michigan on Tuesday.
 
No. 14 Miami 79, No. 19 N.C. State 78
RALEIGH, N.C. — Reggie Johnson tipped in a missed shot with 0.8 seconds left to lift Miami over North Carolina State.
Johnson's left-handed tip in traffic off a miss by Shane Larkin capped a back-and-forth second half and kept the Hurricanes (17-3, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) unbeaten in ACC play. Johnson finished with 15 points in his best performance since returning from a broken left thumb four games ago.
Durand Scott led Miami with 18 points and Julian Gamble added 16 to help the Hurricanes win their ninth straight game, a run that included a blowout of then-No. 1 Duke last week.
C.J. Leslie had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Wolfpack (16-6, 5-4), who played without starting point guard Lorenzo Brown due to an ankle injury. N.C. State nearly won when freshman Rodney Purvis launched a heave from beyond halfcourt at the horn, a shot that hit the rim and rattled out.
 
Northern Iowa 57, No. 15 Wichita State 52
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Anthony James scored 16 points and Northern Iowa beat Wichita State, sending the Shockers to their first losing streak of the season.
Seth Tuttle had eight points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Panthers (12-11, 5-6 Missouri Valley Conference). They took control with a 14-0 run in the second half and became the fourth Valley team in the last 23 games to beat Wichita State at home.
