MI holds off Penn St. on road

Adjust Comment Print

"We still have to entertain the guys that are going to come unofficially to Penn State, underclassmen and others, and then you've got your biggest probably official visit weekend of the year; it's going to be challenging". It was probably a sure thing after beating Ohio State, but now, there can be no debate.

Cain was far from alone on the glass inside. Senior Jasmine Cincore contributed three points at the line while adding seven points of her own.

And it's seemingly fueling Wagner's game and taking it to another level at the right time, with the Big Ten tournament and NCAA Tournament right around the corner.

Simon and Cain were the only Huskers to manage double figures in a low-scoring affair, as they combined to go 11-for-20 from the field.

Watkins is now averaging 12.1 points and 8.9 rebounds on the season. The Wolverines closed it out with free throws. This, similarly to offensive rebounding, has been an issue that has plagued Penn State throughout the season.

Iran: We will flatten Tel Aviv if attacked
Last week, for the first time since 1982, Israel lost a combat aircraft to hostile fire as it returned from air strikes in Syria . Netanyahu warned that future incidents could see Israel take direct military action against Iran .

Over the last few games, MI has continued to shooter better and better from the free throw line. A combination of poor and inconsistent shooting along with scrappy defense from both sides made it a 31.7 percent and 28.1 percent shooting night for Nebraska and Penn State respectively. Lamar Stevens supplied 19 points and eight rebounds. Kamaria McDaniel would find the scoring touch that saw her drop multiple 20 point games to start off the season, getting ten in from the bench.

NEBRASKA (20-8): Simon 5-12 6-8 16, Cain 6-8 2-2 14, Cincore 0-3 3-4 3, Eliely 0-7 0-0 0, Whitish 4-11 1-2 9, Blackburn 0-0 0-0 0, Mitchell 0-0 0-0 0, Washington 0-0 0-0 0, Kissinger 3-11 1-2 8, Morton 1-6 6-7 9, Wood 0-2 0-0 0, Totals 19-60 19-25 59. However, the Lady Lions won the first-half turnover battle 7-4. The Wolverines would take better care of the ball in the second half and end the night with 12 turnovers, which is three more than their average.

The Nittany Lions opened the second with a 13-4 run and took a 39-38 lead when Carr rolled a floater off his fingertips, drew a foul and made the free throw with 16:12 left. The leading scorer helped bring them home.

MI took a 34-26 lead into the locker room but Penn State started the second half hot and cut the deficit to 38-36 three minutes in.
