Nebraska slips by Clemson 68-66 in its ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup at Clemson, South Carolina

Nebraska trailed by no more than six in the first half, but were able to turn up the pace by getting in transition. Doing so gave them a lead by as many as four in the first half, but NU would settle for a 31-31 tie at halftime. Isaac Copeland Jr. had 10 points in the first half, he finished with 16 points on the game.

James Palmer Jr. was electric in the second half, sparking the Huskers with several highlights. He scored 14 of his 20 points in the second half. He added 8 rebounds too.

Nebraska has struggled from the free throw line so far this year, shooting just 67 percent. That wasn't the case tonight as the team shot 82 percent from the charity stripe.

The Huskers will host Illinois next on December 2 at 4:30 p.m. in Pinnacle Bank Arena.
