LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Brandon Ubel scored Nebraska's last 10 points and finished with 15, and the Cornhuskers defeated Minnesota 53-51 Wednesday night in the final college basketball game at Bob Devaney Sports Center.
The Cornhuskers (14-16, 5-12 Big Ten) never trailed, and Nebraska students stormed the court to celebrate the victory over the team that upset then-No. 1 Indiana just last week.

Dylan Talley added 12 points for the Huskers.
The Huskers are moving to the new Pinnacle Bank Arena west of campus next season.
