McVeigh's 3 pointers lead Nebraska past South Dakota 73-61

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska opened up a 22-point lead in the first half, then watched South Dakota cut that lead to two before the Huskers were able to turn back the upset bid 73-61 on Saturday.

"I was really proud of our guys to perform down the stretch," said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. "South Dakota competed really hard and really, I thought, out-competed us the second half. When you get punched in the mouth, you can't look at that and say `Oh gee, what's going on, do I have any teeth left?' You've just got to swallow them, spit the blood out and keep battling."

Nebraska (5-3) hit 10 of its first 15 shots, 4 of 7 from 3-point range, while the Husker defense stifled South Dakota (6-4). The Coyotes hit just 2 of their first 11 shots and turned the ball over six times in the game-opening stretch that saw Nebraska lead 26-4 with 11:23 left in the first half.
