Lyle's 19 points lead Buckeyes in 65-62 OT win over Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) JaQuan Lyle scored all 19 of his points after halftime, including six in overtime to carry Ohio State to a 65-62 victory over Nebraska on Saturday.
Lyle's layup with 31 seconds left broke a 62-62 tie, and the Huskers missed on three more chances before Ohio State secured its sixth win in eight games.
Andrew White III missed badly on a drive with 15.1 seconds left and on a 3-pointer after that. Glynn Watson Jr. grabbed White's miss and was well off with his desperation try just before the buzzer.
Keita Bates-Diop had 16 points and Jae'Sean Tate and Marc Loving added 15 apiece for Ohio State (18-10, 10-5 Big Ten), with Tate also grabbing 12 rebounds.
Jack McVeigh led the Huskers (14-14, 6-9) with 16 points, White had 14 and Watson added 10. Nebraska shot a season-low 27.1 percent from the field.
