Huskers take down Purdue on the road 77-65

The Nebraska women’s basketball traveled to Purdue for a conference showdown with the Boilermakers. Purdue took off in the first quarter, but the Huskers bounced back in the second before pulling away to win 77-65.

The Nebraska trio of Alexis Markowski, Logan Nissley and Jaz Shelley combined for 56 points in the game. Markowski led the trio, dropping 20 points and a career-high 21 rebounds. Nissley and Shelley both scored 18 points.

Nissley’s 18 points tied her season-high, which she earned by going 6-of-10 from the field and 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. A majority of Shelley’s points came from the free throw line, going a perfect 10-for-10. This makes Shelley the 16th player in school history to go perfect at the free throw line with a minimum of 10 free throws made.

The Huskers move to 17-9 on the season and 9-6 in conference play. They will return home to host Northwestern on Tuesday night. Tipoff is set for 8:00 p.m. and can be viewed on the Big Ten Network.
