Despite 23 points and eight rebounds from Tai Webster, Nebraska fell to Virginia Tech, 66-53, in the third-place game of the Wooden Legacy Sunday afternoon. Webster led all scorers with 23 points, including 10-of-12 from the foul line, and matched his career high with eight rebounds, but the Huskers shot a season-low 29 percent, including 4-of-21 from 3-point range.
Ed Morrow was the only other Husker in double figures, finishing with 13 points and seven rebounds, but the Hokies held Glynn Watson Jr. to just two points after he averaged 23.5 points per game in NU’s first two games in Anaheim. The Huskers return home before a quick turnaround, as they travel to Clemson for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge for a Wednesday evening matchup. Tipoff is set for 9 p.m. (CT) on ESPNU and on the Husker Sports Network.
