Glynn Watson Jr. recorded his first career double-double with 10 points and 10 assists, as No. 25/22 Nebraska improved to 10-2 on the season with an 86-62 win over Cal State Fullerton Saturday afternoon at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Watson guided a Husker attack that went over 80 points for the seventh time this season, while setting up a pair of 20-point scorers for the Big Red. Watson’s points-assists double-double was the first by a Husker since 2011, and helped NU it its 18th straight home win, the longest home win streak in over 50 years.

The Huskers will have a couple of days off before returning to action next Saturday, Dec. 29, against Southwest Minnesota State. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m.
