Jackson leads Tech Past Nebraska, 70-64

The Red Raiders get their first victory in Lincoln since 1983.

Junior Jarrius Jackson scored a career-high 41 points Saturday in Tech's victory over Nebraska. Jackson eclipsed his previous career high of 32 and scored the most points for a Red Raider since Rayford Young had 41 against Kansas in 1999.

The Cornhuskers led for the most of the first half, but a steal and lay-up by Jackson gave the Red Raiders a 4 point advantage heading into the locker room. Tech played tenacious defense and made big shots toward the end of the game to hold on for the win.

True freshmen Dior Lowhorn and Michael Prince contributed off the bench, playing 30 minutes each. Lowhorn pulled down 10 rebounds and scored 11 points, while Prince added 7.

The win improves Tech's record to 6-6 in conference play and places them in a 3-way tie for 5th place.

Up next, the Red Raiders face the 19th ranked Oklahoma Sooners in Lubbock. Tip-off is this Monday at 8 p.m. The game will be included as part of ESPN's Big Monday.
