Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers guard Teddy “Buckets” Allen had a record-breaking night for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Allen finished with 41 points on 16-24 from the field and six three pointers.
Allen’s 41 points was one point short of Nebraska’s all-time record, and he tied school marks for points in a home game and most field goals made with 16. In addition, his 28 first-half points broke Nebraska’s single half record.
Despite the huge game from Allen, the Cornhuskers fell to Penn State, 86-83.
Allen left the Mountaineers following his freshman season. Although an extraordinarily gifted scorer, Allen butted heads with Bob Huggins and only averaged 7 points and 2.7 rebounds while playing 11.9 minutes per game in his lone season in Morgantown.
