Watch Jordan Hooper’s postgame press conference.
NU played great defense, forcing ORU into 12-first half turnovers and while Hooper’s offense was the story of the game, there was great balance from the rest of the team, as nine different players scored on 46% shooting from the field. The Huskers also hit 11-of-23 three-pointers on the night, and were 17-of-18 at the free throw line.
NU is off now until Dec. 29 when they host Grambling State.
