CLEMSON, S. .C. -- Clemson coach Brad Brownell was pleased his team finally did well in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. He was also happy to beef up the Tigers early season resume for when decisions are made in March.Jaron Blossomgame scored 15 points, Donte Grantham had a tiebreaking free throw and the Tigers held on despite a wild final stretch for a 60-58 win over Nebraska on Wednesday night.The Tigers (4-2) won a challenge game for the first time defeating Iowa in 2011, a season after they made their last appearance in the NCAA Tournament.Its good. It builds momentum. It helps in terms RPI against a team thats going to have a good RPI in their league, Brownell said. It gets you going in a good direction. Thats important for us right now.It looked for a while that Clemson would succumb to Nebraskas deliberate pace designed to make the Tigers work extremely hard on defense and wear down at the end. Instead, Clemson dug in as it overcame a nine-point deficit and led 58-54 on Granthams 3-pointer with 3:16 to go.But the Cornhuskers (4-3) tied it up at 58-all on Glynn Watson Jr.s 3 two minutes later. Grantham followed by making the front end of a one-and-one that put the Tigers up for good. Nebraska, though, had several chances to pull this one out.Watson missed two jumpers and Anton Gill missed an open shot before turning the ball over. After Avry Holmes hit a foul shot for the final margin with 5 seconds left, Tai Webster failed on a runner in the lane that hit the rim and bounced away.Tai got in there on a little bit of an awkward, tough two, Nebraska coach Tim Miles said. He sat it on the rim, it just didnt go in.Grantham finished with nine points and five rebounds for Clemson.Watson had a game-high 20 points and Webster scored 12. Ed Morrow had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Nebraska.THE BIG PICTURENebraska: The Cornhuskers showed speed, quick hands and a solid shooting touch in building a nine-point lead in the first half. What Nebraska did not display was a strong front-court game and it cost them in the second half. Its tallest players in 6-foot-11 Jordy Tshimanga and 6-8 Jack McVeigh had little impact early on with two shots combined. They ended 1 of 3 from the field for three points.Clemson: The Tigers pledged a stronger early season performance to help build an NCAA resume. So far, it hasnt worked out that way. Clemson lost to Xavier and Oklahoma in an Orlando, Florida, tournament. The Tigers also went back to their shooting struggles, going 8 of 25 from the field in the first 20 minutes and making just two of their nine 3-pointers. Things picked up after halftime, as they hit 5-of-6 shots from behind the arc to hold off Nebraska.GETTING DEFENSIVEClemson guard Avry Holmes said the Tigers struggled to make shots and turned to their defense to pull the game out. It worked as Clemson held Nebraska to just five baskets in their last 24 attempts. We tried to win defensively and stopped worrying about our offense, he said. It was good to see.ITS DABOClemson football coach Dabo Swinney was in the crowd watching the late-night showcase. He played a time-out game where he was challenged to make a face like the toothy emoji on the big screen scoreboard. When his first-half TV interview was wrapping up, Clemson hit a 3-pointer and Swinney said, I need to stay here. We just hit a three.The football Tigers head to Orlando, Florida this week to play Virginia Tech in the ACC championship game on Saturday night.UP NEXTNebraska starts a two-game homestand on Saturday against South Dakota.Clemson continues its run of five in a row at home against Coppin State on Sunday. . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner.The Denver Broncos ended the 2015 season as Super Bowl champions with the great Peyton Manning enjoying one more moment in the spotlight. Manning, aged 39, endured a rollercoaster season that didnt always look like it would end with the ultimate glory after he came within a whisker of losing his quarterback role altogether.Sky Sports have looked back over the Broncos season... Panthers: Road to Super Bowl Remembering Cam and cos year The biggest statement Reggie Nelson of the Bengals hits tight end Owen Daniels of the Broncos An unbeaten eight weeks at the start of the season had crumbled away in potentially catastrophic fashion for the Broncos, who had slipped to a 3-4 in seven games heading into a Week 16 clash with the Cincinnati Bengals. Mannings career was under the microscope like never before, and his poor form resulted in Brock Osweiler stealing his starting spot.But the Broncos, without their legendary quarterback, rallied to a 20-17 overtime win against the Bengals to confirm their own play-off spot thanks to DeMarcus Wares late points. Whats more, they leapfrogged the Bengals who also advanced from the AFC West to earn a bye in the first week of the postseason - in contrast, the Bengals were forced into the Wild Card Weekend where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.For the Broncos, it was a momentous overtime effort that kick-started their path to Super Bowl 50. Osweiler soon found himself back on the bench for a rejuvenated and rested Manning, and the Broncos havent looked back since.The toughest game Peyton Manning is sacked by Kendall Langford of the Colts A rough season for Manning arguably reached his lowest point when he returned to his first team, the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9, only to be sent packing as a loser. The 27-24 result was the Broncos first defeat of the season and worryingly was handed to them by Mannings successor in Indy, the impressive Andrew Luck.It was also a cruel venue for Manning to fall three yards short of becoming the NFLs all-time leading passer, and agonisingly short of the all-time record for wins by a quarterback. He has since broken both of Brett Favres records but this game back in November was a tough one to take.Manning threw for 281 yards, two TDs and two interceptions against the Colts but Luck, his opposite number wearing his old shirt, outshone him.Playoff push Did Peyton Manning hint to Bill Belichick that his career is ending? The Broncos AFC title victory over the New England Patriots in late January could, when its time to write the history books, be remembered as one of Mannings finest moments. The 39-year-olds team were significant underdogs to Tom Bradys Patriots who were aiming for a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance but the Broncos rugged defence spoiled their party.Brady boasted an 11-5 head-to-head record against Manning but the Broncos quarterback won the 17th and most recent installment of their personal duel. Brady failed to convert a game-tying two-point conversion with just seconds remaining, handing the Broncos a 20-18 win which took them to their second Super Bowl in three years.It was a performance built upon the best defence in the NFL rather than Mannings individual brilliance, as Brady was repeatedly stifled and the Patriots were forced to punt the ball more than they would have hoped.Previous Super Bowl history John Elway with the ball for the Broncos, who lost their first four Super Bowls The Broncos won back-to-back Vince Lombardi Trophies in 1998 and 1999, after which the legendary John Elway retired and eventually ushered in a new generation by becoming the teams General Manager and bringing Manning to Denver.Overall, the record books havent been kind to the Broncos. Those two wins in the late-90s and their recent triumph apart, their Super Bowl appearances have been a misery. They have lost a further five Super Bowls (resulting in an overall 3-7 record) having been on the wrong end of the score-line in their first four attempts. A 55-10 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers 25 years ago is the biggest ever hammering in Super Bowl history, while Manning played in a 43-8 stuffing by the Seattle Seahawks two years ago.Super Bowl 50 Broncos sack Cam Newton seven times during Super Bowl 50 Talking points The aftermatch from Super Bowl 50 Denver lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the third time in franchise history as their resolute defence confirmed their reputation as the NFLs best with a 24-10 pounding of Carolina Panthers. Manning, who became the oldest starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl and the only starting quarterback to win the prize with two teams after a 2009 triumph with Indianapolis Colts, played second fiddle to Denvers defence.Von Miller won the Super Bowl MVP while DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib also put in aggressively brilliant defensive displays to sack Panthers quarterback Cam Newton seven times. Manning, for his part, threw for only 141 yards, completing 13 of 23 passes, and tossing one interception.The legendary quarterback wouldnt commit to retirement in the immediate aftermath of the match, claiming he doesnt make decisions based on emotion. Should he never return, the abiding memory of Manning will be lifting his second Vince Lombardi Trophy and bringing it back to Colorado.
