No. 9 Michigan beats Nebraska 82-53 without Matthews
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jon Teske scored a career-high 22 points, and No. 9 Michigan easily rebounded from its loss to Michigan State with an 82-53 victory over Nebraska on Thursday night.
The Wolverines (25-4, 14-4 Big Ten) were without Charles Matthews, out with a right ankle injury, but they raced out to a 22-point halftime lead behind Teske and Iggy Brazdeikis. It was the last home game for Michigan, which finishes the regular season with trips to Maryland and Michigan State.
The Wolverines lost only once at home in 2018-19 — 77-70 to Michigan State on Sunday.
Brazdeikis finished with 20 points.
Nana Akenten scored 11 points for Nebraska (15-14, 5-13) but took a hard fall in the second half near the basket.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Fletcher Magee scored 18 points and Wofford made a successful debut as an AP Top 25 team by trouncing Chattanooga for its 16th consecutive victory.
