21-0 run leads NU women to their 8th straight win

The 24th ranked Nebraska women’s basketball team opened the second half on a 21-0 run on their way to their 8th straight win, a 57-39 final at Michigan on Thursday night. Jordan Hooper led the Huskers with her eighth double-double of the year with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while senior point guard Lindsey Moore produced game highs of 15 points and eight assists.

Moore and Hooper combined for 10 of Nebraska’s first 12 points in the first four minutes of the second half to turn a 22-18 halftime deficit into a 30-22 lead. They kept NU rolling over the next four minutes, combining for the final five of the Huskers’ next nine points to push the NU margin to 39-22 after opening the game down 10-2.

Nebraska returns home Sunday to take on Iowa.
