The (3-3) Florida State Seminoles took on the undefeated (5-0) Nebraska Cornhuskers Sunday afternoon in the Donald Tucker Center, for an ACC, Big Ten face-off.
Today’s game made the second meeting between both schools. FSU defeated Nebraska, 100-84, on Dec. 31, 1982 at the Hurricane New Year’s Classic in Miami, Fla.
Florida State is coming off a home lost to Louisville on Friday night, 85-76. Senior post Cierra Bravard scored a career-best 27 points on 8-of-12 shooting and 11-of-11 at the line, but it would not be enough to take down the Big East powerhouse.
Nebraska defeated the Florida A&M Rattlers Friday night, 72-64 in the Al Lawson Center.
The Seminoles lead for the entire first half, and up until the 6:00 minute mark of the second half. Nebraska was able to tie the game for the first time of the afternoon at 52-52. The Cornhuskiers took the lead at 5:56 with a three-pointer by Brandi Jeffery to make it 52-55 Nebraska.
Florida State kept it close for the reminder of the game, but the Noles were unable to seal the deal.
Cierra Bravard finished the game with 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting to go along with six boards, two steals and a block. She scored 15 points in the first half. Clayton also finished in double-digits with 10 points and nine boards.
The Seminoles will be back on the court Wednesday in Columbus when they face Ohio State at 8:30 p.m. at Value City Arena as part of the ACC/Big Tem Challenge.
