The Nebraska men's basketball team fell at Minnesota 88-73 in its final road game of the season. The Huskers drop to 12-17 overall this season and 6-11 in Big Ten play.

Offensively, five Huskers landed in double-digit scoring led by Glenn Watson Jr. with 14 points. Watson added three assists and three rebounds as well. 

Nebraska's leading scorer, senior Tai Webster, recorded just 11 points and committed five turnovers. One bright spot for Watson was that he led the Huskers in rebounds with eight.

The Minnesota duo of Jordan Murphy and Nate Mason dominated and acoounted for a combined for 45 points and 13 rebounds.

Nebraska will play its final game of the season at home against Michigan. Webster, the Huskers' lone senior, will be honored during Senior Day festivites. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network.

The Huskers will likely play on the first day of the Big Ten tournament Wednesday March 8 after the loss to the Gophers. The bottom four teams play for a spot in Thursday's Big Ten tournament action.
