Top 25 roundup: Nebraska topples No. 1 Purdue


Keisei Tominaga had 19 points and Rienk Mast added 18 to help Nebraska knock off No. 1 Purdue 88-72 on Tuesday night in a Big Ten Conference game in Lincoln, Neb.

It was the Cornhuskers’ first win over a top-ranked team since 1982, when they won at old Big 8 foe Missouri. They did it Tuesday by hitting a season-high 14 3-pointers on just 23 attempts, making seven in each half.

Tominaga went 5 of 9 on 3-pointers while Mast, who was matched up against reigning national player of the year Zach Edey, made two 3s and was 8 of 17 from the field. CJ Wilcher added 16 points, Juwan Gary scored 12 and Brice Williams had nine points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for Nebraska (13-3, 3-2 Big Ten).

Purdue (14-2, 3-2) fell to 1-2 in true road games as it found itself taking more 3-pointers than 2-pointers for the first time all season. The Boilermakers were 13 of 33 from outside, with Mason Gillis hitting five as part of a season-high 16 points, but they made just 11 of 24 shots from inside the arc.

Iowa State 57, No. 2 Houston 53
