LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Duncan Robinson scored 21 points and Derrick Walton Jr. had 12 rebounds to go with his 19 points, leading Michigan to an 81-68 win over Nebraska on Saturday.
   The Wolverines (15-5, 5-2 Big Ten) squandered most of an 18-point lead in the second half but held on to end the Cornhuskers' four-game win streak. Michigan has won all six meetings with the Huskers (12-9, 4-4) since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011.
   Nebraska, coming off Wednesday's 72-71 upset at No. 11 Michigan State, got 15 points apiece from Glynn Watson Jr. and Andrew White III.
   Michigan, which saw a 12-point lead whittled to three at halftime, made its first nine shots of the second half and led 49-33 after a 16-3 run.
   Robinson, held scoreless the last 15- 1/2 minutes of the first half, swished a 3 from the corner starting a run where the Wolverines' lead grew to 18 points.
