MADISON, Wis. (AP)—Lindsey Moore scored 28 points and the No. 15 Cornhuskers beat Wisconsin 75-69 Thursday night.
Tiera Stephen hit a layup to pull cut Nebraska’s lead to 71-69 with a minute left, and the Badgers had a chance to tie the game after Brandi Jeffrey missed a layup.
But Anya Covington turned the ball over as she tried a spin move in the post on Wisconsin’s next possession, and the Cornhuskers (15-1, 4-0) made four free throws over the final 17 seconds.
Rebecca Woodbury added 14 for Nebraska, while Jordan Hooper was held to a season-low 10 points, less than half her 21-point average.
Rebecca Woodberry had a career-high 14 points after going 5 of 5 from the field, hitting all four of her 3-point attempts.
Taylor Wurtz scored 20 points to lead Wisconsin (5-12, 1-4 Big Ten), which shot 9 of 17 from 3-point range.
