Terran Petteway tied a season-high with 25 points and Shavon Shields had 21 and eight rebounds as Nebraska held off a furious rally to defeat Florida State 70-65 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Huskers led by 16 at the half, but Florida State shot 52% in the second half and cut the lead to 62-61 with 2:18 left, but a layup by David Rivers and a three pointer from Tarin Smith put the Seminoles away. The Huskers now 5-1.
Shields had 15 points in the first half, while Petteway had 14 points — scoring 29 of Nebraska’s 37 first-half points. Junior guard Benny Parker had four steals, tying his total from the last three games combined.
The Cornhuskers have won their last three B1G/ACC challenge games. Nebraska defeated Miami 60-49 in 2013 and won 79-63 at Wake in 2012.
