The Big Red blew an eight point 2nd half lead as the Terrapins' Jalen Smith scored the game-winner on a floater with three seconds remaining.

The Huskers fell to 11-3 overall, 1-2 in Big Ten play. The Terps had lost their past eight games against ranked teams.

"Our guys are doing great", Turgeon said.

"I'm just glad we won". Roby was 3-of-7 from the field and 4-of-8 from the free-throw line but still managed 11 points and seven boards against a major size disadvantage.

Smith only played nine minutes in the first half, and except for an early corner 3-pointer, didn't contribute much to Maryland's cause.

Following a timeout, Nebraska (11-3, 1-2) tried to work the ball up the court before Ricky Lindo Jr. knocked away a pass under the basket. "We just need to figure out how to come out on top". "Wins like that mean a lot to us, to the coaches, to everybody at the whole University of Maryland". Nebraska had a chance in the final seconds but couldn't get a shot off. James Palmer Jr. scored a game-high 26 points in the loss, while Anthony Cowan led the way for the Terps with 19. They also allow the third-fewest rebounds per game at 25.6. "Pick one that you want to be bad at", Miles said.

Trailing 70-69, Nebraska regained the lead on a steal and dunk from Palmer with 2:13 left and was in position to steal a road win, as Palmer's jumper on the next possession rimmed out.

The former Mount Saint Joseph star finished it looking like the first-round National Basketball Association draft pick he's projected to be, scoring the last seven points for Maryland as the Terps beat No. 24 Nebraska, 74-72, at Xfinity Center.

"You hear the celebration in the opposing locker room, and it's disappointing because you probably played well enough to win but you just didn't do enough little things", Miles said.

Nebraska's defense again set the tone from the start of the second half, forcing Maryland to miss eight straight shots and go on another four-minute scoring drought, taking a 47-39 lead after the first five minutes. The Terps went on a brisk 10-2 run in just two minutes to tie the game at 49-49.

Ryanair named 'worst short-haul airline' for sixth year running
Travel editor Rory Boland. "Increasingly you need a calculator to work out what the final bill will be, especially with Ryanair". When the 7,901 participants were asked if there were any airlines they would never travel with, 70 per cent named Ryanair.

"He wasn't very good early, was he?"

The Cornhuskers limited Maryland to 28-for-60 shooting. It was the 38th time in 39 games Nebraska's opponent failed to exceed 50 percent, dating to last season.

Nebraska comes into tonight's game on a four-game win streak since an 85-78 loss at Minnesota back on December 5.

Nebraska: Playing on the road in a loud arena, the Cornhuskers gave a tough Maryland team everything it could handle.

With the victory, the Maryland Terrapins improved to 11-3 on the season.

"We had a chance to build (a lead), we didn't do it", Miles said.

Up next for the Terrapins is another Big Ten game, this time against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

But NU was able to flip the script to close the half, answering with a 10-2 run of its own and holding Maryland without a made field goal for the final 4:10 before the break.

Nebraska would eventually stretch it back to four on a 3-pointer from Isaiah Roby before Allen's driving baseline floater beat the first-half buzzer.
