Hoops: Nebraska holds off Canes

The University of Miami basketball team continued its road trip by traveling to Lincoln but came up on the short end.

Miami has been playing inconsistent basketball, especially on the offensive side of the ball, all season long. That was again the case in this one, as the Canes shot just 32-percent from the floor and fell to the Cornhuskers by the score of 60-49.

Rion Brown turned in one of the best individual performances of the season for the Hurricanes, scoring 25 of the team's 49 points. That was the highest single game total of any Cane this season. The next closest Hurricanes, three of them, scored just five points each.

Nebraska, which shot 39-percent from the floor, was led by Terrence Petteway who scored 14. Walter Pitchford added 13 for the Huskers.

Brown, Donnavan Kirk, James Kelly, Garrius Adams, and Davon Reed were the five starters for the Hurricanes in this game.

Miami (5-3) will return home Sunday to take on Virginia Tech after playing its last four games on the road.
