OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Justin Simmons scored 26 points, including three 3-pointers, to help Nebraska-Omaha rally for a 79-75 nonconference victory over Chicago State on Tuesday night.

Simmons was 6 of 13 from the floor and 11 of 13 from the line for the Mavericks (10-18), who got 15 points from CJ Carter and 14 from Caleb Steffensmeier.

Quinton Pippen led the Cougars (8-18) with 17 points. Nate Duhon and Matt Ross had 15 apiece.

Chicago State led for most of the second half and went ahead 62-55 on Pippen's layup with 5:13 to play. But Nebraska-Omaha came alive after that, reeling off a 14-0 run, capped by Simmons' 3-pointer, for a 69-62 lead with 1:53 left. The Mavericks added 10 free throws in the final 1:30 to secure the win.
