Nebraska hoops got a 64-63 win in a wild one with Illinois on Monday night thanks to a last-second 3-pointer from James Palmer Jr.
Trailing 63-61 after a four-point play on a three and a free throw from the Fighting Illini’s Michael Finke, Palmer took a pass from Glynn Watson Jr. and lofted up a contested three that fell with .03 seconds left in the game.
