Bloomington, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Walter Pitchford and Shavon Shields each tallied 17 points to help lead the Nebraska Cornhuskers to a 70-60 win over the Indiana Hoosiers in a Big Ten Conference showdown at Assembly Hall.

Pitchford grabbed a team-high nine rebounds in the win, and Shields pulled down eight boards of his own for Nebraska (18-11, 10-7 Big Ten). Terran Petteway netted 13 points, but missed all four of his 3-point tries in the contest. Nebraska has won seven of its last eight games played.

Will Sheehey chipped in with 13 points, and Yogi Ferrell contributed 10 with eight rebounds and five assists. The Hoosiers, who snapped a two-game win streak, were without star freshman Noah Vonleh for the second consecutive game due to an injury.
