LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Glynn Watson Jr. was coming off a miserable game, with six points on 2-of-11 shooting in a loss to No. 3 Michigan State. He got back on track Tuesday night.

Watson scored 20 of his 29 points in the second half and Nebraska opened up a 16-point lead early in the second half en route to a 78-68 win over No. 14 Minnesota.

"This is all-conference Glynn, right?," Nebraska coach Tim Miles said. "He did a great job all night. ... He was really determined the whole day and yesterday. I don't think he felt good watching tape of Michigan State. It wasn't anything new or different. It was just Glynn."

Watson scored seven straight points to open the second half, and Duby Okeke's dunk put Nebraska (7-3, 1-1 Big Ten) up 48-32 with 15:35 left.

Minnesota (8-2, 1-1) made two of its first 10 shots in the half and struggled against the Huskers' switching man-to-man defense.
