Getting little production from anyone other than Marshall Moses and Keiton Page, OSU dropped to 0-5 in conference road games, falling 65-54 Saturday at Nebraska.

The Huskers, one of several teams the Cowboys find themselves competing with for the Big 12's final NCAA bids, improved to 4-6 in league play and 16-8 overall, matching OSU in both categories.

“We played very poorly,” said Cowboys coach Travis Ford. “One of our poorer performances overall.”

The Cowboys desperately seek a minimum of one road win in an attempt to get to at least 8-8, having surrendered a game at home to Texas. And nothing about the upcoming schedule – at Texas Wednesday, home against Texas A&M Saturday and at Kansas on Feb. 21 – looks easy.

“We need to improve very, very quickly,” Ford said.

Moses scored a game-high 18 points, his most in league play this season, and Page added 14. But no other Cowboys managed more than six on a night when the team shot just 36 percent (18-of-50) from the floor.
