ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The Nebraska men's basketball team pushed second-ranked Michigan harder and farther Wednesday night than most would have predicted.
The Huskers, down five points at halftime, were still within five with 7:12 to play and within single digits inside three minutes before falling 62-47. The win allowed UM (16-0, 3-0) to match its best start in school history.
