Tenth-ranked Creighton pulled away from a tie game early in the second half to thump Nebraska 77-62 in front of a sellout crowd of 15,902 at Pinnacle Bank Arena, winning for the sixth straight time in this intrastate series.

Nebraska controlled tempo for much of Wednesday night against 10th-ranked Creighton, recovered from early jitters, wiped away a 14-point deficit in the first half, forced a tie early in the second half, held CU’s leading scorer 12 points under his average ... yet still got slapped — and at home to boot.
