Recap: Indiana vs. Nebraska

Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Cody Zeller had 16 points and five rebounds in No. 1 Indiana's 76-47 win over Nebraska.

Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Victor Oladipo added 13 points and eight boards for the Hoosiers (22-3, 10-2 Big Ten), who have rebounded with back-to-back wins since losing at Illinois last Thursday.

Dylan Talley netted 16 points to lead Nebraska (12-13, 3-9), which has dropped nine of its last 12 contests.

Indiana took a 27-18 lead into the break and blew the game open in the second half.

"We definitely wanted to start the second half off fast," Watford said. "We wanted to play our style of basketball. We felt like we were kind of letting them lure us in a little bit in the first half. We definitely wanted to get out in the second half and share the basketball."

After the Hoosiers opened up a 39-23 advantage a little less than four minutes into the stanza, Indiana went on a 19-4 run a bit later in the frame.

Zeller had six points during the surge, including the last four to open up a 58-32 cushion with 7:40 to play.

The hosts cruised the rest of the way.

"The trouble in the second half came with their 3-point shooting and their ability to get to the foul line," said Nebraska head coach Tim Miles. "They are always on the attack. That's just how they are."

Earlier, the Cornhuskers had a 14-11 edge midway through the first stanza before the IU outscored them 16-4 over the final 10 minutes to close the period.
