STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — A near-record performance from freshman Shavon Shields and a Penn State meltdown at the free-throw line in the final 25 seconds helped Nebraska on Saturday claim its first Big Ten men's basketball win 68-64.
Shields, a 6-foot-6 wing, scored 29 points on 10 of 11 field goals and 8 of 8 free throws. His previous high had been 18 points on Wednesday against Purdue.
