Sierra Calhoun made three shots from long range and was 4-of-5 from the floor overall to finish with 13 points. Freshman Tori McCoy didn’t miss a shot from the floor and scored 12 points and tied her season-high for the second-straight game with four blocks.

Guards Kiara Lewis and Linnae Harper also made some key buckets in the second half to stop the Huskers’ runs. Both players finished with nine points. Senior Shayla Cooper scored eight points and led the team with nine rebounds.
