Tominaga, Nebraska perform demolition of Michigan thumping Wolverines 79-59

LINCOLN, Neb (AP) - Keisei Tominaga scored 19 points and Josiah Allick scored 16 points and Nebraska was never threatened in a 79-59 beat down over Michigan on Saturday.

Nimari Burnett's basket 35 seconds in provided Michigan with its only lead. Tominaga's 3-pointer with 13:28 before halftime gave the Cornhuskers their first double-digit lead at 18-7. Rienk Mast's layup almost five minutes later gave Michigan its first 20-point advantage (30-10). Another five minutes later, Juwan Gary threw down a dunk for a 43-13 Nebraska lead with 5:21 left before halftime.

The Cornhuskers (17-8, 7-7 Big Ten) led 45-25 at intermission and Michigan never got within 15 for the remainder. Burnett made a 3 with 4:52 left to reduce Michigan's deficit to 70-55. Burnett was the only player to reach double figures in scoring for Michigan (3-10, 8-16) with 18 points.

In sole possession of last place in the conference, Michigan faces No. 10 Illinois on Tuesday.

Nebraska, which ended a two-game skid, hosts Penn State on Feb. 17.
