Shavon Shields scored 15 points to lead four Nebraska players in double figures as the Huskers rode a fast start for a 79-67 win over Arkansas State Saturday afternoon at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Ray Gallegos added 13 points, Walter Pitchford had 12 and Terran Petteway 11 for the Huskers (7-3), who bounced back from a 15-point loss to in-state rival Creighton last Sunday.

Kirk Van Slyke scored a career-high 27 points for Arkansas State (5-3), which was off to its best start in five years and had its three-game winning streak end. Melvin Johnson III had 18 points for the Red Hawks, who couldn't overcome 21 turnovers and 38-percent first-half shooting.

Nebraska led by 28 points in the second half and fans started leaving with just under 12 minutes to play and the Huskers up by 22.
