Husker Men Win a Close One Against Long Beach State

Husker men’s basketball:

Glynn Watson Jr. had a season-high 26 points and six steals to lead four Huskers in double figures, as Nebraska earned fifth place in the AdvoCare Invitational with an 85-80 win over Long Beach State Sunday afternoon.

Watson keyed a Husker attack that jumped out to a 22-point lead and held on down the stretch, as the junior clinched the victory with a pair of free throws with 1.3 seconds left after the 49ers pulled to within 83-80.

The Huskers return to Lincoln on Wednesday evening, as they take on Boston College in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Tipoff is set for 8:15 p.m.
