Kelsey Griffin had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Cory Montgomery added a season-high 24 points as #3 Nebraska clinched its first Big 12 title by beating #10 Oklahoma 80-64 victory Wednesday night in Norman.
After allowing Oklahoma to overcome a 10-point deficit in the second half, the Cornhuskers (26-0, 13-0 Big 12) matched the Sooners blow for blow before Turner and Montgomery created some distance with a quick eight-point burst.
Nebraska finished the game on an 18-1 run for their first win in Norman since 1998. Montgomery went 4-for-8 from 3-point range on an otherwise poor night from behind the arc for Nebraska (7-for-25).
Nebraska hadn’t won a conference title since claiming the Big Eight crown in 1988.
