Nebraska Takes NIT

NEW YORK () -- Junior center Mikki Moore came up big on both ends of the court in the final 5 1/2 minutes to lead Nebraska to its first national tournament title in basketball as the Cornhuskers beat St. Joseph's 60-56 to win the U.S. National Invitation Tournament.


Nebraska salvaged what looked like a horrible regular season by winning the United States' oldest post-season college basketball tournament Thursday night.


Nebraska beat Tulane in the semifinals, while St. Joseph's defeated Alabama to reach the final. Tulane beat Alabama 87-76 Thursday night for third.
