LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Eshaunte Jones and Brandon Ubel scored 11 points each to lead Nebraska past North Dakota 77-46 for its ninth win in a row.

Nebraska (11-2) held its third consecutive opponent under 50 points. The Cornhuskers have not allowed more than 58 points in a game during the winning streak.

Nebraska led 36-20 at halftime, and Brandon Richardson hit a 3-pointer that started a 13-0 Husker run that ended with Lance Jeter's 3-point play that made the score 52-26 with 10:27 remaining.

Diaz and Andre Almeida each scored 10 points for Nebraska, which shot 55 percent from outside.

Patrick Mitchell led the Fighting Sioux (5-9) with 14 points, while Josh Schuler and Jamal Webb had 11 each. North Dakota shot 28 percent from the field.

The game was postponed from Sunday because of bad weather that prevented North Dakota from leaving for Lincoln.
