LINCOLN, NE (WHBL) - The Wisconsin men's basketball team ended an eight-game winning streak by dropping its regular season finale at Nebraska Sunday night, 77-68.  Just before the game, the Badgers clinched second place in the Big Ten when Michigan State lost to Ohio State.  That locked the Badgers into the second-seed in this week's conference tournament.  Wisconsin earned a first-round bye, and will play either Number-seven Minnesota or tenth-seeded Penn State on Friday night.  The Badgers had a four-point lead on Nebraska with nine minutes to play, but the Cornhuskers took over for good with seven minutes left.  A 7-0 Nebraska run then sealed the 'Huskers victory, and the Badgers could not get closer than six the rest of the way.  Both teams shot 54-percent in the opening 20 minutes, but ninth-ranked Wisconsin only shot 34-percent in the second half.  The Badgers committed 11 turnovers, their first double-digit errors in seven games.  And they only hit 11 of 21 free throws, after coming in at a 75-percent clip.  Terran Petteway and Shavon Shields both scored 26, as Nebraska completed its home schedule at 15-1.  The 'Huskers finished fourth in the Big Ten at 11-7, with an overall mark of 19-11.  Frank Kaminsky had 14 points and eight boards for Wisconsin, which ended its regular season at 12-6 in the conference and 25-6 overall.
