Nebraska Too Much for Cavs
HONOLULU (AP) - Tyronn Lue scored 24 of his 36 points in the second half Saturday to bring Nebraska from behind in an 80-65 victory over Virginia in the opening game of the Rainbow Classic.
The Cornhuskers (9-2) trailed 35-28 at the half, but went on a 14-2 run to start the second half to move ahead for good. During the spurt, Troy Piatkowski hit two of his four 3-pointers and Lue had four points.
Lue was 12-of-19 from the floor, converted 11-of-12 free throws and dished out seven assists. Down the stretch, he scored 10 straight points, the last opening up a 20-point lead.
Venson Hamilton added 13 points and Piatkowski 12 for Nebraska.
For the Cavaliers (6-4), Norman Nolan had 23 points and Curtis Staples 21. Staples, Virginia's leading scorer, didn't score his first points until three minutes before the half and then closed out the game with eight more points.
Nolan kept Virginia close for part of the second half, scoring nine straight points, but the Cavaliers could not stop Lue.
Virginia outrebounded the Cornhuskers, 37-26, but committed 27 turnovers and gave up 13 steals.
