EVANSTON, Ill. -- John Shurna scored 28 points and Drew Crawford added 21 to lead Northwestern to an 84-74 win over Nebraska on Thursday night.

Northwestern (13-8, 3-6 Big Ten) dominated the game behind the arc, making 14 3-pointers to end a three-game losing streak.

After Brandon Richardson's steal and layup cut Northwestern's lead to 54-53 with 10:36 left, Northwestern responded with nine unanswered points on three straight 3-pointers by Crawford, Shurna and Reggie Hearn.

It appeared Northwestern had control of the game with under three minutes to play and a 75-66 lead, but Dylan Talley hit a 3-pointer and Spencer made another to get the Cornhuskers within 75-72 with 1:34 left. Shurna answered with a driving layup and Dave Sobolewski made three free throws in the final minute to secure the win.

Bo Spencer led Nebraska (11-10, 3-7) with 24 points and Toney McCray finished with 16.
