Jarrett Culver poured in 26 points with six rebounds and Matt Mooney scored 15 points with two steals and Texas Tech overcame a slow start to beat Nebraska 70-52 last night in the title game of the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Red Raiders trailed 15-6 in the opening minutes before going on a 12-0 run to wipe out their deficit. The game remained close until midway through the second half, when Culver and Mooney combined to slowly pad Texas Tech's cushion. Isaac Copeland Jr. scored 20 points with eight boards and two steals and James Palmer Jr. had 13 points for the Huskers, who were trying to win their first in-season tournament title since the 2000 San Juan Shootout. The Red Raiders improve to 5-0 while Nebraska drops to 4-1.
