After the USC Trojans missed shots that would have won the game at the end of regulation and the first overtime, the Nebraska Cornhuskers scored eight consecutive points in the second overtime and held on for a 64-61 win, dropping the Trojans to 1-1.

USC center Dewayne Dedmon had a chance to win the game in regulation after Aaron Fuller wrestled for an offensive rebound, getting the Trojansa final possession with 19 seconds remaining. Maurice Jones found Dedmon alone at the free-throw line with one second on the clock, but his shot bounced off the rim.

The end of the first overtime period was just as hectic. After Jones banked in a running jumper with seven seconds remaining to give USC a 54-52 lead, Nebraska was the beneficiary of a bang-bang call just across midcourt, as Toney McCray charged into USC freshman Alexis Moore, with Moore whistled for a blocking foul. The subsequent free throws knotted the game and a long 3-point attempt from Jones rattled off the rim at the buzzer.
