Tai Webster scored 13 of his 14 points in the second and Nebraska rallied to take seventh place at the Charleston Classic with a 73-65 victory over Georgia on Sunday.

The Cornhuskers (4-2) had watched close games slip away their first two days in the eight-team tournament and were trailing the Bulldogs 51-48 with under 10 minutes left. That's when Webster led Nebraska on a 23-13 run to close the game and avoid a 0-for-3 trip to South Carolina's coast.

Webster had seven points in the charge, including a 3-pointer with 7:44 left that put the Cornhuskers up for good.

Georgia got within a point after Marcus Thornton's basket a possession later, but Webster followed with two foul shots and the Bulldogs got no closer. Georgia opened 1-4 for the second straight season. Charles Mann scored 16 points to lead the Bulldogs.

Terran Petteway had 15 points to top Nebraska.
