LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska's Jordan Hooper has scored 30
points or more in three of her last four games. Coach Connie Yori
of the 19th-ranked Cornhuskers says she's surprised when the
sophomore forward misses a shot.

Hooper has evolved from the freshman stand-still shooter who
took the Big 12 by surprise. She's come into the Big Ten more
confident shooting off the dribble, taking the ball to the hoop or
posting up for the 12-1 Huskers.

Hooper said she knew she would have to become more versatile if
she was going to help the Huskers be successful their first year in
the Big Ten. She's coming off a 31-point, 12-rebound outing at
then-No. 16 Penn State.

She goes into Thursday night's home game against Indiana
averaging 21 points and nine rebounds.
