LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Haanif Cheatham scored 17 points and Nebraska opened up an 18-point, first-half lead and went on to beat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 73-52. Nebraska, up by 13 at intermission, saw Texas A&M-Corpus Christi cut the lead to 10 at 38-28 early in the second period. But the Islanders were able to get no closer while Nebraska gradually stretched the lead, going up 20 on Jervay Green’s slam dunk and, six seconds later, layup that made it 57-37. Nebraska built its first half lead by holding the Islanders to just one field goal in a nearly 11-minute stretch.
