The Nebraska men's basketball team took down Seton Hall, 80-57, in an impressive non-conference win in Pinnacle Bank Arena Wednesday night.

Senior guard James Palmer Jr. caught fire and led the team in points with 29 to go along with six rebounds and two assists.

Isaac Copeland notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Glynn Watson Jr. put up 14 points with 8 assists and three rebounds.

With about 14 minutes left in the game, the Huskers were called for a technical foul on an assistant coach after arguing a foul that was called on Isaiah Roby.

From that point on, Nebraska went on a 35-15 scoring run to close out Seton Hall. Roby put the exclamation point on the victory with about two minutes left with this one-handed alley-oop.

The Huskers played well defensively and forced plenty of bad offensive possessions for the Pirates. 

Seton Hall made just two of its three-point attempts and shot just 35% from the field.

The Huskers improved to 3-0 on the season after the win. Next up for Nebraska is a matchup against Missouri State in Kansas City on Monday, Nov. 19 at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.
