PISCATAWAY, N.J. (WOWT) -- The Nebraska men's basketball team lost their fifth straight game in a 75-72 loss to Rutgers on Saturday.

The Scarlet Knights remained perfect on their home floor.

Nebraska went on a huge run in the second half that got them a lead in the final minutes of the game, but Rutgers hit clutch shots down the stretch to win it.

Cam Mack hit four three pointers and Jervay Green was a solid contributor after being benched by head coach Fred Hoiberg and missing four straight games.

The big red is 7-13 overall. They're 2-7 in Big Ten games.
