Lincoln – Despite a game-high 19 points from junior forward Shavon Shields, Nebraska was unable to get its first Big Ten road win of the season, as the Huskers fell at Purdue, 66-54, Sunday evening. Shields hit 7-of-13 shots from the field to lead three Huskers in double figures, as Nebraska fell to 13-12 on the season and 5-8 in Big Ten play. Terran Petteway and Walter Pitchford added 13 and 12 points, respectively, as a lapse early in the second half prove costly. Vince Edwards led Purdue (17-9, 9-4) with 15 points to lead three Boilermakers in double figures. The Huskers continue the two-game road swing on Thursday evening, as they travel to Maryland.
