LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Terran Petteway scored a career-high 35 points, Nebraska overcame Malik Smith's shooting exhibition in his first start for Minnesota, and the Cornhuskers bounced back from a crushing loss at Penn State to hang on for an 82-78 victory Sunday.

Walter Pitchford added 13 points and Shavon Shields 10 for the Huskers (10-9, 2-5 Big Ten). Nebraska hit a season-high 11 3-pointers, with Petteway making four and Pitchford three.

Smith tied a Minnesota record with eight 3s and equaled his career high of 29 points, scored against Stetson when he was playing for Florida International last season. Smith started in place of Andre Hollins, who sprained his left ankle early in Wednesday's game against Wisconsin.

DeAndre Mathieu added 13 points for the Gophers (15-6, 4-4).
