    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Sek Henry's layup with 1:12 left put Nebraska back in front after it had squandered an 18-point lead and the Cornhuskers went on to defeat Missouri 56-51 on Saturday.

    Ade Dagunduro scored a career-high 20 points for the Huskers (11-3, 1-0 Big 12), but some of his best work was on the defensive end against DeMarre Carroll. Missouri's season scoring leader was held without a point until the middle of the second half and finished with seven, almost 10 under his average.

    Missouri's other big scoring threat, Leo Lyons, also went scoreless in the first half but ended up leading the Tigers (13-3, 0-1) with 12.

    Nebraska capitalized on 12 Missouri turnovers to lead 32-18 at half. But the Tigers cleaned up their play after the break, and J.T. Tiller tied it 51-all with a jumper from the right wing with 1:41 left.

    The Huskers regained the lead on Henry's drive and didn't let Missouri score again.

    Marcus Denmon missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 2.4 seconds.
