Huskers can’t pull upset vs. Spartans
NU’s Shavon Shields whips a pass around Michigan State’s Gary Harris. Shields, a 6-foot-6 freshman, finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds, the first double-double from an NU freshman since Aleks Maric in 2005. “He’s fun to watch when he gets going like that, isn’t he?” NU coach Tim Miles said.
