    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Ryan Anderson had 16 points and 14 rebounds to lead Nebraska, which survived a scoring drought down the stretch Saturday night to hold off Oregon State 50-44.

    Nebraska (7-2) hit its last field goal of the game with 6:53 remaining and scored its final five points from the free-throw line, including two each from Lance Jeter and Anderson in the final minute to seal the win.

    Oregon State (4-4) struggled offensively as well, getting just four points in the final four minutes on a free throw by Calvin Haynes with 52 seconds left and a three-point play from Seth Tarver with 21 seconds left that made the score 48-44.

    Nebraska led 24-19 at halftime, but the Huskers could not pull away from the Beavers, who got 12 second-half points from Roeland Schaftenaar. He finished with 16.

    The Huskers opened up the only double-digit lead of the contest following a Ray Gallegos 3-pointer with 6:50 remaining and Sek Henry's free throw with 6:21 left, making it 46-36 Nebraska.

    The Beavers got back-to-back baskets from Schaftenaar and Seth Tarver to cut Nebraska's lead to 46-40 with 4:04 remaining.

    Both teams hit 36 percent of their shots from the field and each had 34 rebounds.

    Jeter added 11 for Nebraska. Tarver had 12 for Oregon State.
