LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Chris Evans scored 19 points and Kent State used a 20-6 second-half run to put away Nebraska 74-60 on Saturday night.

Kent State (4-2) trailed by one at the half, but came out firing, going up 37-35 on Randal Holt's layup two minutes into the second period and never trailed again. Nebraska (4-1) cut the Golden Flashes lead to 50-49 on Dylan Talley's basket with 10:42 left.

Evans' short jumper with 10:01 triggered the game-clinching run. Kent State pushed the ball inside, getting layups and short jump shots, going up by 10 on Evans' 8 footer that made the score 61-51 with 6:48 remaining.

Darren Goodson hit 8 of 10 shots to score 16 points for Kent State. Holt finished with 15.

Talley had a career high 27 points to lead Nebraska. Brandon Ubel had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Huskers.
