Emily Cady scored a career-high 25 points and added nine rebounds as No. 16 Nebraska picked up a 66-43 women’s basketball win over Utah on Sunday afternoon at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The Huskers, who played their first game on their old homecourt at the Devaney Center since March 2, 2013, improved to 4-0 on the season.
In addition to the 16 points from Cady, the Huskers got 20 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals from junior All-American point guard Rachel Theriot. The Huskers never trailed in the game and led by as many as 27 points on their way to victory. Cady and Theriot combined to hit 18-of-33 shots from the field to lead the Huskers, but the rest of the Big Red struggled to hit just 9-of-31 shots on the afternoon. As a team, NU hit 42.2 percent (27-64) of its shots, including 3-of-12 threes. The Huskers did hit 9-of-10 free throws.
The Huskers complete a three-game Pac-12 swing by traveling to Los Angeles to take on UCLA on Friday. Tip-off between the Big Red and the Bruins at Pauley Pavilion is set for 3 p.m.
