    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Sek Henry scored 14 points and Nebraska's defense smothered Missouri-Kansas City in a crushing 70-48 win on Tuesday night.

    Nebraska (3-1) began the second half with a 17-point lead after holding the Kangaroos (3-1) to just eight field goals and 30 percent shooting in the first.

    The Huskers were never challenged after that, leading by as many as 28 before Nebraska coach Doc Sadler cleared his bench late in the game.

    Tied at 10 after the first 10 minutes, Nebraska went on to score 31 more points before intermission while holding Missouri-Kansas City to just 14.

    The Kangaroos had 10 second-half field goals and finished with 35 percent shooting from the field.

    The Huskers forced 14 turnovers, six of them steals and seven blocked shots.

    Lance Jeter added 12 points and Jorge Brian Diaz had 10 for Nebraska. Jay Couisnard led the Kangaroos with 11 points.
