Nebraska basketball finished the season undefeated at home in conference play with a 76-64 win over Penn State. The Huskers led from start to finish and held the Nittany Lions to their lowest-scoring first half of the season. 

Nebraska finished the season 22-9 overall and 13-5 in Big Ten play. The Huskers were nearly undefeated at home other than a one-point loss to Kansas earlier this season. 

Isaac Copeland led Nebraska with 17 points, 12 rebounds and four assists. Three other Huskers were in double-digit scoring: Isaiah Roby (13), James Palmer Jr. (11) and Glynn Watson Jr. (11). 

Penn State's Tony Carr was the only source of offense, scoring 27 points. 

Nebraska locked up the No. 4 seed in the Big Ten tournament with today's win, meaning the Huskers will have a double-bye in the Big Ten Tournament.

The Big Ten Tournament will get underway Thursday, March 1st at Madison Square Garden in New York City, although the Huskers won't play until later in the weekend.
