AP - Sports

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Emily Cady had the ninth double-double of her career, 19 points and 11 rebounds, to lead Nebraska to 62-48 victory over Alabama Monday.

Sophomore point guard Rachel Theriot added 17 points and five assists.

Alabama was able to slow All-American Jordan Hooper to only eight points, but she still pulled down 13 rebounds.

Nebraska (2-0), ranked 15th in AP poll, opened with a Cady jumper to take the lead. However Alabama (0-2) kept pace with the Cornhuskers, taking a 24-23 lead on a Briana Hutchen jumper with 3:29 left in the first period. Theriot made two free throws to regain the lead. Nebraska never trailed again, opening a 29-24 advantage at the half.

A Theriot layup with 15:03 remaining in the final period stretched the lead to 39-28. Alabama closed to within six with 11:51 remaining, but that was as close as the Crimson Tide could get.
