Women’s basketball falls to No. 22 Creighton

The Huskers faced their first big test of the season, in-state rival and No. 22 Creighton. Nebraska and the Bluejays collided in a fierce battle, with the Cornhuskers suffering their first defeat of the season.

Creighton held its lead over Nebraska throughout the game until the very end, and the final score flashed 79-74 Bluejays. The Huskers finished with 26-of-58 in field goal shooting but only went 3-of-21 in 3-point shooting. This played a big factor in the game as Creighton went 28-of-66 in field goal shooting and went 9-of-28 in 3-point shooting.

Alexis Markowski once again dominated the court for Nebraska, finishing with a season-high 24 points. This is Markowski’s second straight 20-point game of the season, and her 11th in her collegiate career.

Freshman Natalie Potts also brough a season-high in the game, dropping 16 points, her third double-digit point game of the season. Montana State transfer Darian White was the final Huskers to finish with double-double points, delivering 13 on the afternoon. She also hauled in 10 rebounds to record her first double-double of the season.

Nebraska falls to 3-1 on the season and hits the road down to St. Petersburg, Florida for the St. Pete Showcase. The Huskers will square off with Lamar for their first game in showcase on Thanksgiving Day. Tip-off is set for 2:30 p.m. and can be viewed on FloSports.
