Even though some Husker fans headed for the exit with the Huskers up 66-59, Eastern Illinois had other ideas as the Panthers trimmed the lead to 68-66 with 11 seconds to go. Glynn Watson went 4-for-4 from the free throw line to help the Huskers seal the deal, and allowed the Nebraska fans still in their seats to take a sigh of relief.
