Nebraska is coming off its most complete game of the season with its 67-38 win at Indiana on Thursday. The Huskers led 62-24 with seven minutes and were able to rest their starters extensively in the second half. Freshman Rachel Theriot played the best game of her young career with a career-high 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field against the Hoosiers. The 6-0 guard from Middleburg Heights, Ohio, added six assists while making her 10th straight start.

Sophomore guard Tear'a Laudermill matched her career high with 14 points while leading a suffocating Husker defense that held the Hoosiers to an opponent season-low 38 points.

Starting forwards Jordan Hooper and Emily Cady both added double-doubles for the Huskers, who dominated the glass, 50-27, at Indiana. Hooper (13.3 ppg, 10.3 rpg) and Cady (10.3 ppg, 12.0 rpg) are both averaging double-doubles for the Huskers in Big Ten play. Hooper, a first-team All-Big Ten pick, leads NU with 18.4 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.

Senior point guard Lindsey Moore has added 15.5 points and 5.6 assists while shooting better than 50 percent from the field. She leads Nebraska with 17.7 points per game in conference play.
