ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Glynn Watson Jr. scored 19 points and Nebraska took control down the stretch to beat Northwestern 70-55 on Tuesday night.
James Palmer Jr. added 18 points, 15 in the second half, Isaac Copeland scored 13, and the Cornhuskers (11-5, 2-1 Big Ten) won their fourth straight.
Dererk Pardon had 17 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for Northwestern (10-6, 1-2). But the Wildcats shot just 29.percent from the field (19 of 65) and were 6 of 21 on 3-pointers.
It didn't help that star guard Bryant McIntosh watched from the sideline after exiting Saturday's win over Brown with a left knee injury. He is day to day after an MRI showed no major structural damage.

Nebraska had dropped four in a row to Northwestern. But the Cornhuskers took control early in the second half.
Northwestern was leading by seven when Nebraska went on a 16-5 run to go up 41-36. Law cut it to 41-40 with a basket and two free throws, but the Cornhuskers pulled away after that.
Anton Gill made a 4-point play with just under eight minutes left. Isaac Copeland got fouled on a put-back and hit the free throw to complete the 3-point play, making it 54-45 with 6:13 remaining. And James Palmer nailed a 3 to make it 59-49 with 3:32 left.
