Nebraska basketball gets back on track against North Dakota

Nebraska basketball came out firing Sunday afternoon and took down North Dakota 92-70 to improve to 3-1 on the season.

The Huskers struggled offensively in their last matchup with St. John's, but made major strides against the Fighting Hawk's Sunday.

Nebraska finished shooting 52.9% from the field and hit eight of its 20 three-point attempts. Isaac Copeland led all scorers with a monster 30 point game. Copeland also grabbed eight boards.

Anton Gill added 16 points, three rebounds and three assists, while Glynn Watson Jr. had another 13 points, five rebounds and three assits. 

Senior center Duby Okeke nearly broke the rim with a one-handed alley-oop early in the first half. 

Up next for Nebraska is a Thanksgiving Day matchup with UCF at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Tip-off for that game is set for 5 p.m.
