Terran Petteway scored 17 points and Nebraska overcame a slow start to win at Northwestern 53-49 Saturday afternoon.

Walter Pitchford added 15 points, nailing three three-pointers as the Huskers (12-10, 4-6 Big Ten) picked themselves up after getting blown out by Michigan earlier in the week. They trailed by six after an ugly first half and blew an eight-point lead late in the second, but managed to pull this one out.

Northwestern (12-12, 5-6) had just scored eight straight to tie it at 44 when Pitchford hit two free throws and a three to make it a five-point game with 2:25 left. After two free throws by the Wildcats' JerShon Cobb, Petteway nailed a three with :22 left to make it a six-point game.

Northwestern's Sanjay Lumpkin answered with one of his own, but the Huskers hung on.
