WACO, Texas (AP) - LaceDarius Dunn scored 20 of his 24 points after halftime to help Baylor beat Nebraska 74-70 on Wednesday night.
Dunn scored Baylor's first seven points after halftime, capping it with a 3-pointer that broke a 36-all tie and put the Bears (16-7, 6-4 Big 12) ahead to stay. Right after that, Baylor's A.J. Walton had a steal and a breakaway layup.
Nebraska (15-8, 3-6) failed to take advantage of a turnover by Dunn in the final minute. The Bears converted when Dunn made an over-the-shoulder layup for a 71-67 lead.
Dunn hit two more free throws with 16 seconds left after Anthony Jones blocked a long 3-point attempt by Nebraska's Toney McCray.
McCray led the Cornhuskers with 23 points and Lance Jeter had 13.
Quincy Acy added 15 points and seven rebounds for Baylor.
