The Nebraska basketball team scored more than 90 points for the second time this season in a rout of Southeastern Louisiana at Pinnacle Bank Arena Sunday.
The Huskers stormed out to a huge first half advantage, leading 53-16 at halftime. Southeastern Louisiana would cut the margin some against Nebraska’s reserve players, but the Huskers won easily 92-65 over the Lions.
“They built the lead, they kept the lead,” said Head Coach Tim Miles. “It’s a tough situation to be in for both teams. Credit Southeastern Louisiana. They didn’t lay down.”
Freshman Glynn Watson led the scoring for the Huskers with 14 points off the bench, but five Huskers scored in double figures. Nebraska got great contributions off the bench from freshmen Ed Morrow and Michael Jacobson, who each had 11 points. 11 Huskers scored in the game. No starter played more than 22 minutes.
Tim Miles said of the freshmen, “I’m not sure we’re ready to say there’s a bonafide third scorer, but they share the ball pretty well.”
Nebraska’s next game is Tuesday against Arkansas Pine-Bluff at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
