EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Terran Petteway scored 23 points and Walter Pitchford added 18 and Nebraska topped No. 9 Michigan State 60-51 on Sunday.
Petteway had 16 points in the last 20 minutes after Pitchford had scored 12 before the break for the Cornhuskers (14-10, 6-6 Big Ten).
Gary Harris had 18 points and Adreian Payne 11 for the Spartans (21-5, 10-3), who remain in a first-place tie with Michigan. Harris was 5 for 15 from the field. Michigan State shot 34 percent from the field and 20.8 percent on 3-pointers.
The Cornhuskers led 32-25 at the half and held off a second-half surge with a 9-2 closing run.
NO. 21 WISCONSIN 75, NO. 15 MICHIGAN 62
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Frank Kaminsky had 25 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 21 Wisconsin smothered No. 15 Michigan in the first half before holding on.
The Wolverines (18-7, 10-3 Big Ten) cut an 18-point deficit to three in the second half, but Kaminsky personally went on a 7-2 run after that, helping Wisconsin regain control. The Badgers (21-5, 8-5) have won four straight - and they committed only two turnovers.
Caris LeVert scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half for Michigan.
Sam Dekker had 15 points for Wisconsin.
The Badgers led 34-19 at halftime after holding Michigan without an assist in the first half.
TEMPLE 71, No. 23 SMU 64
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Dalton Pepper scored 24 points and Temple upset SMU.
Playing without injured starter and leading rebounder in Anthony Lee, Temple (7-17, 2-10 American Athletic Conference) knocked a top-25 opponent for the first time since March 10 against No. 21 VCU. The Owls were 0-5 against the Top 25 this season, but have now beaten a ranked opponent in each of the last seven seasons.
The Mustangs (20-6, 9-4) had a four-game winning streak snapped at the end of what has been an eventful week for coach Larry Brown's team. It started with SMU entering the AP rankings for the first time in 29 years. The Mustangs had their game at Rutgers pushed back from Thursday to Friday because of a winter storm in the northeast.
They then made a short trip from Piscataway, N.J., to Philadelphia, and lost on the road for the sixth time this season.
