LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A California judge has signed an arrest warrant for Maurice Washington, clearing the way for the Nebraska running back to return to his home state to face charges related to his possession and distribution of a video of his former girlfriend being sexually assaulted by two other people in 2016.

"We expected this, and were prepared for it," Washington attorney John Ball wrote in an email Thursday. "I have also specifically confirmed that we will continue to move forward with a self-surrender, meaning that Mr. Washington will not be arrested or extradited, and that he will voluntarily appear in court in California."

Ball also said he is in discussions with the prosecutor about possible resolutions.

Washington is accused of obtaining a video of the assault from one of the perpetrators, storing it on his cellphone and sending it to the girl last March. He has been charged with a felony count of possessing a video or photograph of a person under 18 who is engaging in or simulating sexual conduct and a misdemeanor count of distributing that video without consent, leading to the person suffering emotional distress.

Washington was a star at King's Academy in Sunnyvale, California, where he met the girl and the two dated. He later attended high school in Texas.

The girl told investigators she re-connected with Washington on Instagram early last year and initiated contact to congratulate him for earning a football scholarship. Washington, in Texas at the time, then made sexual advances on the social media platform, the girl said, and he became angry when she replied she was not interested in a romantic relationship.

On March 2, she said, she received a text with the video and a message that said, "Remember this hoe (sic)?" The girl said she knew it came from Washington because the phone number was the same as the one Washington had when the two were cordial.

"This is about two young people who were once boyfriend and girlfriend in the eighth grade, and their communications years later," Ball wrote. "Without all the facts, any judgment of anything in this case is premature, and would be based only on speculation and conjecture. Mr. Washington is presumed to be innocent. He will address this case in a court of law, relying on rules of evidence and due process."

Santa Clara County prosecutor Clarissa Hamilton said from San Jose, California, that one or both of the participants in the alleged assault were prosecuted in juvenile court. The charge or charges were unknown because juvenile records are sealed.

College Park, Md. - Nicea Eliely scored a season-high 18 points, but it was not enough to overcome Maryland's 16-0 run in the final 3:06 of the third quarter, as the No. 7 Terrapins ran to an 89-63 win over the Huskers at the Xfinity Center on Thursday night.

Nebraska trailed 51-43 after a three-pointer by Kayla Mershon capped a string of seven straight points by the freshman. But with 3:06 left Maryland's Brianna Fraser scored and drew a foul. That was the start of a 16-0 run to end the quarter to put the game out of reach.

Nebraska, which slipped to 6-8 in the Big Ten and 11-14 overall, got 11 points from Sam Haiby off the bench.

Kaila Charles led five Terrapins in double figures with 22 points, while Blair Watson pumped in 17 points and Fraser added 14 points off the bench. Stephanie Jones and Shakira Austin both pitched in 10 points to help Maryland improve to 23-2 overall and 12-2 in the Big Ten.

The Terps outscored the Huskers 19-2 in points off turnovers.

Maryland hit 42.9 percent (30-70) of its shots, including 6-of-15 threes (.400) and 23-of-31 free throws (.742).

Maryland jumped to a 9-0 lead in the game's first 2:05 and took its biggest lead of the first half at 15-4 with 3:05 left in the opening period, before Nebraska rallied. The Huskers trimmed the Terp margin to 22-15 at the end of the quarter, then pulled within 29-26 after an 11-4 surge over a four-minute span that started with back-to-back threes by Eliely and ended with a three-pointer from Taylor Kissinger with 4:42 left in the half.

Maryland responded to push the margin back to seven at 41-34 at halftime. Eliely led the Huskers with 12 first-half points, including 10 in the second quarter, while Haiby added seven points. Kate Cain contributed four points, five rebounds, four blocks and two assists in the opening 20 minutes.

Maryland responded by shooting 42.9 percent (15-35) in the half, including 2-of-7 threes. The Terps also hit 9-of-12 free throws. First-quarter turnovers set the tone in the first half for Maryland, as the Terrapins forced eight first-quarter turnovers by Nebraska and turned those mistakes into eight points. The Huskers committed just three turnovers in the second quarter. Maryland turned the ball over just three times in the half.

Fraser led Maryland with nine points off the bench in the half, while Watson added eight points. Austin and Charles both contributed seven first-half points, while Jones pitched in six points.

LincolnJames Palmer Jr. knocked down a pair of free throws with 1.1 seconds remaining to lift the Nebraska men’s basketball team to a 62-61 win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers Wednesday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena

In a game that featured nine ties and 12 lead changes, Nebraska led for much of the second half before Minnesota used a 6-0 run to take a 61-59 lead with less than a minute to play. The Gophers led by one with under 30 seconds on the clock when Isaiah Roby made the defensive play of the game, drawing a charge from Minnesota’s Jordan Murphy to give the ball back to Nebraska with 18 seconds remaining. On Nebraska’s first chance to win the game, Thomas Allen had his shot blocked out of bounds. On the ensuing inbound, Palmer caught the ball on the baseline, pumped fake, and drew a foul on Amir Coffey to set up his game-winning free throws.

Palmer, who scored 10 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, was 8-of-10 at the line on the night, including 3-of-4 in the final minute. In addition to Palmer’s big night, Glynn Watson Jr. erupted for 19 points, just one shy of his season high. While Palmer and Watson combined for 43 of the Huskers’ 62 points, Allen added seven points and a career-high nine rebounds in his return to the starting lineup, while Roby had six points, four rebounds, three assists and a pair of blocks.

The win snapped a seven-game losing streak for Nebraska, improved to 14-11 on the season and moved to 4-10 in Big Ten Conference play. Nebraska shot 50 percent from the field, its first time hitting more than 40 percent of its shot in six games. Minnesota (16-9, 6-8 Big Ten) got a double-double from Murphy with 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Daniel Oturu added 16 points and Amir Coffey – who had a career-high 32 points in the first meeting with Nebraska – chipped in 11 points.

Nebraska shot 52 percent in the first half, but still trailed by one, 31-30, heading into the locker room. Palmer started off the game for the Huskers with a driving layup for the game’s first points, but his bucket was followed by a 5:14 scoring slump. During the scoreless stretch, Minnesota scored 10 straight points during a 15-2 run that gave the Gophers a 11-point lead seven minutes into the game.

Minnesota maintained its 11-point lead midway through the period, but Nebraska cut the lead to seven before Palmer used a personal 8-0 run to give the Huskers a 22-21 lead with 6:34 left in the half. The teams traded baskets the rest of the half, with Dupree McBrayer hitting a 3-pointer with 40 seconds to play in the half to give Minnesota the halftime advantage. as Minnesota tacked on ten straight points to go up 10-2 heading into the under 16-minute media timeout.

The Huskers then came out red hot to begin the second half as Allen took the lead right back for the Huskers with a 3-pointer from the top of the key just 14 seconds into the period. Behind consecutive 3-pointers from Watson and Palmer, Nebraska scored nine of the first 10 points of the second half to build a seven-point advantage, its largest lead of the game.

The Gophers answered with nine straight points to take a 44-41 lead with 14 minutes remaining. But Nebraska bounced back, holding Minnesota without a field goal for more than four minutes, which allowed the Huskers to open up a 51-48 lead with 8:12 to play.

Minnesota fought back to tie the game at 53, but Nebraska built the lead back to four at 59-55 with 3:43 left. The Huskers did not make a basket over the final 4:06, which allowed Minnesota to regain its late lead. Five of Nebraska’s seven points in the final five minutes came at the free-throw line, with Palmer accounting for all five free throws, including the game-winner.

Kearney, Neb. – Four players scored in double figures to help Nebraska-Kearney rally past Pittsburg State, 65-63, Saturday evening in Kansas.

The Lopers (8-14, 3-10) pick up its second road win of the year while the Gorillas (14-9, 7-7) drop a fifth straight game. Both teams were a bit short handed as Pitt was minus two starters, including guard Donovan Franklin (21.7 points per game), with UNK junior Kyle Juhl sidelined for most of the day with a shoulder ailment.

Pitt, also featuring senior guard Grant Lozoya (24.0 ppg), got out to a 31-17 lead 14 minutes into the action. UNK was just 1 of 13 from behind the three point line in the opening half but a zone defense and some work around the rim by sophomore post Weston Baker Magrath (Marshall, Minn.) made it just a seven-point hole, 36-29, by the break.

"I think our zone helped us get back in it. Once we got (the deficit) down by halftime, that kind of got us going and gave us a chance," said Loper head coach Kevin Lofton. "Our zone really helped us all weekend. It got us back into it at Missouri Southern and it did the same thing today. We wanted to shortened the game  … we need it to be in the 60's and not the 70's or 80's."

UNK tied things up at 51 with 8:59 left after a bucket by junior forward AJ Jackson (Bellevue West). However, Pitt went ahead by four a few minutes later. The final 3:42 saw several lead changes with a triple from the top of the key by freshman Kanon Koster (Kearney) finishing the scoring. The game-winning bucket came at the 1:45 mark.

Pitt missed its last five shots, four of which were taken by Lozoya. With nine tenths of a second left, he managed to get off a corner three that clanked off the side of the backboard. Guarded by Jackson, Lozoya was limited to 12 points on 6 of 18 shooting (0 of 6 threes). The Lopers final 1:45 included a missed shot and turnover. Luckily, UNK didn't foul a lot and managed to take some time off the clock late with a couple of none-shooting fouls.

"We're very proud of our guys. Anytime you get a split on the road you take it and run," said Lofton.  "Pitt got off to a really good start and it looked like we were running in quick sand for a while."

Having a plus four rebounding margin, Kearney shot 42 percent from the field and was 9 of 11 at the line. Baker Magrath had 10 of his 12 points in the first half with Jackson tallying a team-best 17 on 7 of 10 shooting. He also went 3 of 3 at the line and has now scored 54 points in the last three games (18.0 avg.).

Next, Koster scored 13 as he hit two of UNK's four treys with Alliance sophomore Austin Luger coming off the bench to provide 14 points, five rebounds (three offensive) and two steals in just 21 minutes. The 14 points ties his career-high point total.

"Austin made a lot of really big plays. When you get the opportunity you have to be ready to make the most of it and he definitely did that today," said Lofton. "AJ did a good job guarding their best player and Weston did some good things early when we couldn't find the basket. He came alive around the rim and gave us some points when we desperately needed them."

Going 7 of 28 from behind the arc, Pitt was led by Sam Houston State (Texas) transfer Demetrius Levearity who had 23 points on nine made field goals (three triples). Lozoya, besides his point total, had eight assists and eight rebounds.

UNK hosts the Lincoln Blue Tigers Thursday night. LU (16-6, 9-4) lost to No. 1 Northwest Missouri State today, 75-57.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Grady Eifert gave No. 15 Purdue the boost it needed Saturday.
And once the senior forward got started, the Boilermakers took off.
Eifert scored 16 points and had four steals, both career highs, and grabbed five offensive rebounds to help Purdue overcome a sluggish start and pull away for an 81-62 victory over Nebraska.
"We talked at halftime about getting more offensive rebounds and more open looks for our guys," he said. "We were trying to play through it with hustle and energy."
Nobody did it better than Eifert, the younger brother of NFL tight end Tyler Eifert and one of the most underrated players on Purdue's roster.
While Carsen Edwards scored 27 points and Nojel Eastern had 12 points and 10 rebounds, his fourth double-double in six games, Eifert almost single-handedly turned the game with the kind of gritty hustle plays coach Matt Painter appreciates.
Things started to change when Eifert hit the deck to make a steal then flipped an outlet pass to Eastern for a breakaway basket. On the Boilermakers' next possession, Eifert's second 3-pointer of the game closed out the decisive 8-0 run and when Ryan Cline followed with another 3, the Boilermakers had a turned a 39-35 cushion into a 50-38 runaway.
Painter wasn't the only one raving.
In the waning minutes, fans chanted M-V-P, M-V-P as Eifert celebrated his 100th career win, and Cornhuskers coach Tim Miles joined the chorus after the Boilermakers (17-6, 10-2) won their eighth straight.
"I thought the guy who hurt us tonight was Grady Eifert and I know that's hard to say when Carsen Edwards has 27," he said.
Thomas Allen made five 3s and matched his season-high with 18 points for Nebraska (13-11, 3-10). James Palmer Jr. added 17 points as the Cornhuskers' losing streak hit seven — the last four without injured forward Isaac Copeland.
But Nebraska did play better.
With the Boilermakers off to a lackluster start, the Cornhuskers took a 25-21 lead on Palmer's 3 with 7 minutes left in the first half.
That's when Eifert & Co. cranked up the defensive intensity. Purdue allowed just one basket the rest of the half, used an 8-3 run to take a 33-31 halftime and then relied on the momentum and Eifert's impact to take control early in the second half.
"You have to have a competitiveness to you and I thought Grady really brought tonight," Painter said. "We did a better job (in the second half) feeding off those hustle plays Grady and Nojel were making."

BIG PICTURE
Nebraska: Clearly, the Cornhuskers aren't the same without Copeland. But they showed some promise by hanging around most of the night against a Big Ten contender.
Purdue: The Boilermakers have won 14 straight at home. But on Saturday, they showed they can win even when they don't play their best. Purdue relied on its usual three-pronged approach — defense, hustle and ball movement — to pull away late. And it should keep them climbing in the poll.

STAT PACK
Nebraska: Glynn Watson Jr. scored four points after being shut out for the first time since his freshman season Wednesday at Maryland. ... The Cornhuskers had eight turnovers but were outrebounded 39-24. ... Nebraska is 0-7 all-time at Mackey Arena and has lost five of the last six in the series. ... The Cornhuskers shot 38.2 percent from the field.
Purdue: Eifert finished with seven rebounds. ... Purdue's 10-2 mark in conference play is tied for the fifth-best mark in school history. ... Painter won his 312th game and needs four more to move into the top 10 in Big Ten history.

TRIBUTE TO TRENT
The Boilermakers honored the late Tyler Trent, at their annual Hammer Down Cancer game.
They presented a check for nearly $13,000 to the fund in Trent's name at the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research. Athletic director Mike Bobinski also gave Trent's family a framed No. 1 jersey, drawing the loudest roar of the night from the crowd.
The 20-year-old Trent became a national inspiration during the football season as he rooted on the Boilermakers. Trent died on Jan. 1 from a rare form of bone cancer.

UP NEXT
Nebraska: Will try to end its skid when it heads home Wednesday to face Minnesota.
Purdue: Can make a major statement Tuesday at No. 24 Maryland.
