ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Jordan Hooper scored 23 points — moving into second on Nebraska's all-time scoring list — and grabbed nine rebounds as the No. 21 Cornhuskers beat Michigan 76-68 Thursday night.

Hooper made 8 of 10 field goals, including 3 of 3 behind the arc, and 4 of 4 free throws for Nebraska (18-5, 8-3 Big Ten), which shot 59 percent from the floor, 55 percent from 3-point range and 86 percent from the free-throw line.

The Cornhuskers used a 20-9 run, including eight points from Hooper, to open up a 57-45 lead with 14:16 left.
