LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) --- Shavon Shields and Terran Petteway scored 26 points
apiece, and Nebraska upset No. 9 Wisconsin 77-68 on Sunday night to put a dent
in the Badgers' hopes for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
The Cornhuskers (19-11, 11-7) won for the 10th time in 12 games to clinch
fourth place in the Big Ten for their highest conference finish since 1997-98.
The Badgers (25-6, 12-6) had their longest conference win streak since 1940-41
end at eight games.
Shields made a couple free throws, Ray Gallegos hit a 3 and Shields dunked in
transition to start a 12-1 run that turned a 52-48 deficit into a 60-53 lead
with 5 minutes left.
