All-American point guard Rachel Theriot missed her first game and the Huskers missed her. NU was held to a season low 17 points in the first half, but then rallied from a 12-point deficit to two, before losing at #21 Rutgers 46-43.
This was Nebraska fourth road loss this season by one possession or in overtime and three of those games including this one came against top 25 teams.
It also didn’t help that Tear’a Laudermill had an off night. She still finished as the team’s leading scorer for the fifth straight game with 16 points, but hit just 5-of-28 shots from the floor. She hit 4-of-17 threes.
