WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolna (AP) - Ray Gallegos scored 17 of his career-high 20 points after halftime to help Nebraska beat Wake Forest 79-63 on Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.


Andre Almeida matched his career-high with 20 points to go with a career-best 11 rebounds for the Cornhuskers (5-1), who blew open a close game after halftime. Gallegos went just 1 for 5 in the first half but hit seven straight shots after the break, helping Nebraska blow the game open and turn it into an ugly night for the Demon Deacons (3-3).


After leading just 28-24 at the break, the Huskers scored on 16 of 19 possessions to start the second half and build a 22-point lead with 8:05 left. Gallegos had 12 points during the 20-3 run that turned it into a romp, including a pair of 3-pointers.


Freshman Madison Jones scored 14 to lead Wake Forest.
