Nebraska basketball found a way to pick up its fifth win in its last six games with a 63-59 win over Wisconsin in Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The Huskers improved to 12-6 overall and 3-2 in Big Ten play with the win over the Badgers. Tuesday's win marks just the third time Nebraska has beaten Wisconsin since joining the conference. 

James Palmer Jr. led the way for Nebraska with 18 points, five rebounds and two assists. Isaac Copeland was the only other Husker to score double-digit points (12).

Nebraska struggled offensively, shooting just 42.6% from the field and connecting on just two of its 14 three point attempts.

Up next for the Huskers is a matchup with Penn State Friday on the road at 6 p.m.
