3 Thoughts on Nebraska's 70-56 Win Against Purdue

December 15, 2019

Nebraska started fast and closed strong to secure its first Big Ten win of the season, knocking off Purdue (6-4) 70-56 at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Sunday afternoon to improve to 5-6 on the year.

Here are three thoughts from the game.

Mack Attack

With 41 seconds to go and Nebraska leading 69-54, sophomore point guard Cam Mack ripped a rebound away from teammate Kevin Cross Jr. and tossed the ball over to Dachon Burke Jr. before falling out of bounds.

It was Mack’s 10th rebound of the game, and it gave him the first triple-double in Nebraska basketball history.
