LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tyrell Nelson knew what Sundays 70-62 win over Nebraska means for Gardner-Webb.This is huge, this one is huge, Nelson said. We somewhat struggled in the beginning (of the season) but this win is very big for us, going into the Christmas break and going into conference. Its very, very big for us.Nelson scored 15 of his 24 points in the second half to help Gardner-Webb beat Nebraska 70-62 on Sunday.Nebraska cut it to 62-60 on Tai Websters free throws with 2:21 left. But Gardner-Webb hit 3 of 4 free-throw attempts down the stretch and David Efianayi hit a game-clinching layup with 29 seconds left.Efianayi had 11 points for Gardner-Webb (7-5). The Bulldogs shot 44 percent from the field, 48 percent in the second half, and made 12 of 17 second-half free throws.Tai Webster led Nebraska (5-6) with 17 points. Glynn Watson Jr. had 14 points and Ed Morrow Jr. pulled down 15 rebounds.Nebraska coach Tim Miles was despondent with his teams listless performance in front of 8,144 fans in the usually-packed 14,000-seat Pinnacle Bank Arena..I never dreamt in five years this is where we would be, losing to Gardner-Webb, Miles said. Were not where we should be. The issue is us. Its us and our mindset.It was the smallest crowd Id ever seen at Pinnacle Bank Arena and we told our guys it was going to be. We had bad weather, youve got a lot of things going on, and were going to have to create our own energy. We talked about that, and we didnt.Nebraska led by as many as seven in the first half, but the cold-shooting Huskers saw that lead cut to just two at intermission. Nebraska hit just 40 percent of its shots for the game, made 15 of 26 free throws and committed 20 turnovers.The Bulldogs opened up a four-point lead early in the second half, but a 5-0 spurt by Nebraska put the Huskers up 36-35. Gardner-Webb took the lead for good on Nelsons 3-pointer to make it 45-43 with 12:57 left and opened the advantage to seven on Efianayis free throws five minutes later.Beating a Big Ten team on the road was critical for Gardner-Webb going forward, said coach Tim Craft.I think what it does for our players is it validates some of the things that weve been talking to them as a coaching staff about and how good they can be if they can play in a stance all the time and defend with max effort all the time, Craft said. Its exciting to see them have success against a team in the Big Ten.BIG PICTUREGardner-Webb: The Bulldogs traveled from North Carolina to the heartland to wrap up their pre-conference season.Nebraska: The Huskers have played the toughest schedule in the country, according to the NCAA RPI.

WASHINGTON -- For the first time since his knee surgery in May, John Wall played in back-to-back games, and the result was a rare win for the Washington Wizards.Wall scored 23 points and had 11 assists and Otto Porter added 21 points as the Wizards won for just the third time in 11 games, beating the New York Knicks 119-112 on Thursday night.Wall sat out games in the first two Washington back-to-backs this season, and the Wizards lost both times.After Wednesday nights disheartening loss to the 76ers where Wall played 24 minutes, Washington coach Scott Brooks felt his star guard was ready to go again.There was going to be a time during the season where he was going to have to play back-to-back, Brooks said. The way he was progressing during the last four or five weeks, we felt that it was a good time.Brooks didnt want to play Wall more than 32 minutes, and when the Wizards opened up a 27-point lead late in the third quarter, it looked as if Wall could play much less than that.But New York scored 47 points in the fourth quarter, and Brooks put Wall back in the game in the final minutes.Once the Knicks went on a 12-0 run to cut the lead to 108-98 with 2:37 to play, Wall secured the win with two late baskets and four free throws.New York was led by Derrick Rose with 27. Carmelo Anthony scored 19, and Kristaps Porzingis, who had a career-high 35 against Detroit on Wednesday night, was held to 16. Brandon Jennings had 15 of his season-high 17 points in the fourth quarter.WHAT WALL BRINGSBrooks liked much about Walls game.He had a major impact in the first half, and I think he only had two points, Brooks said. There are a few pllayers in the league that can impact a game with passing and defense, and hes one of them.ddddddddddddWall had been eager to test himself, and was confident he passed the test.I dont like to miss games. I felt like I could have played earlier, but it was just part of what the doctors plan was, Wall said.LACK OF EFFORTDespite the late fourth quarter charge, Rose didnt necessarily like what he saw from his teammates.Tonight was effort, Rose said. When we see someone down or we see someone where things are not clicking, thats when weve got to come together as a team. So its still early in the year. Weve still got a lot more games to play. It just takes time.DEFENSE LACKINGNew York allowed a season high in points and Washington shot 54.3 percent.Some of that is guys are wide open. Theres a few of them that were contested, but we looked like we were a little tired from last night and we werent getting all the way up on the guys. And to win on the road, youve got to play good defense, coach Jeff Hornacek said.TIP-INSKnicks: F Lance Thomas missed his third straight game with a sore left ankle. ...
