LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) - Andre Almeida's dunk with 1:45 left put Nebraska up for good and the Cornhuskers turned back Tulane 61-57 Wednesday night. 

Nebraska (4-0), which led for nearly the entire first half, saw Tulane (3-2) take the lead on Jordan Callahan's jumper with 16:53 left which made the score 40-39. The Green Wave stayed in front until Almeida hit a 6-foot set shot with 4:51 left to put Nebraska up 56-55. 

Almeida's dunk broke a tie at 57 and was the final basket of the game. Jordan Callahan missed three free throws with 1:06 remaining after having been fouled on a 3-point attempt. Nebraska's Dylan Talley missed a driving shot. Josh Davis and Callahan each missed shots in the final 40 seconds for Tulane.  

Ray Gallegos hit a pair of free throws with 3.5 seconds left to seal the win for Nebraska.
