Nebraska sophomore point guard Lindsey Moore scored a career high 27 points and five assists but it wasn’t enough to counter No. 23 Iowa State’s hot shooting night as the Huskers lost 85-66 at the Devaney Center Wednesday night.
Moore went 8-of-16 from the field, 1-of-4 from three-point range, and a perfect 10-for-10 at the free throw line while playing the full 40 minutes for the Huskers. The Huskers fall to 11-8 overall and 1-4 in the Big 12.
Senior center Jessica Periago added six points on a pair of three-pointers off the bench, but NU hit just 35.5 percent of its shots, including 4-of-11 three-pointers. NU was also 7-of-11 at the line and forced seven ISU turnovers while committing just six of its own.
Nebraska returns to home action at the Devaney Center when the Huskers play host to Texas Tech on Saturday night. Tip-off against the Lady Raiders is set for 7:05 p.m.
