James Palmer Jr. had a team-high 15 points, but NU was unable to slow down third-ranked Michigan State’s frontline in a 86-57 loss Sunday afternoon.
Palmer led the Huskers with 15 and three assists, but Nebraska (6-3, 0-1 Big Ten) shot just 27.4 percent on the day in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
The Huskers return home on Tuesday night, as they host No. 12 Minnesota. Tipoff at PBA is set for 8 p.m.
