LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Jordan Hooper scored 18 points and Rachel Theriot had nine with 12 assists as No. 22 Nebraska rolled past No. 24 Michigan State 76-56 Saturday.

The Cornhuskers (17-5, 7-3 Big Ten) shot 46.8 percent from the field and outrebounded Michigan State 38-31. Tear'a Laudermill scored 15 points and Emily Cady had 13 with nine boards and five assists.
