Jalen Smith’s basket with 2.4 seconds remaining lifted Maryland to a 74-72 win over No.24/23 Nebraska Wednesday evening at the XFINITY Center.

Smith, who scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half, broke the deadlock with a jumper in the lane to give Maryland (11-3, 2-1 Big Ten) the lead. Smith scored Maryland’s final seven points in a see-saw contest which saw 11 ties and nine lead changes.

The Huskers return to action on Sunday afternoon when they travel to No. 25 Iowa. Tipoff is slated for 4:30 and will be broadcast on Mix 105.5, FM, with the Husker Sports Network.
