INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Boo Buie scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and drew a critical charge with 10.5 seconds left as Northwestern erased a 15-point second-half deficit to upend Nebraska 71-69 in the opening round of the Big Ten Conference tournament. After forcing the Nebraska turnover, Buie was fouled with 7.4 seconds remaining and made the first of two free throws. Trey McGowens pushed the ball up court only to have his contested floater in the lane deflected by Robbie Beran. Northwestern faces fifth-seeded Iowa in the second round on Thursday. Alonzo Verge Jr., scored 21 points with nine assists, seven rebounds and four steals for 13th-seeded Nebraska.
