Lincoln - Lindsey Moore scored 26 points and tied a career high with five three-pointers to lead the No. 25/19 Nebraska women's basketball team past Wisconsin, 70-52, in the Big Ten opener on Wednesday night.

With the victory, Nebraska improved to 11-3 overall and 1-0 in the Big Ten, while the Badgers slipped to 8-6 and 0-1 in the conference.

Moore, a 5-9 senior point guard from Covington, Wash., hit her first four three-point attempts of the game to lead a Nebraska attack that hit a season-high 12 threes on the night. She added four assists and four steals in a tremendous all-around effort, while hitting 5-of-8 threes on the night.

Emily Cady added 13 points and a career-high 14 rebounds for her first double-double of the season and fourth of her career. The 6-2 sophomore forward from Seward, Neb., also hit a season-high three-pointers.

Junior forward Jordan Hooper added 14 points, six rebounds and two steals, including three more three-pointers for the Huskers.

Cassie Rochel led Wisconsin with a double-double of her own with 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Jacki Gulczynski finished with 13 points, including three second-half three-pointers. Tiera Stephen added 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals for the Badgers.

Nebraska hit 40.4 percent (23-57) from the field, including 44.4 percent (12-27) from three-point range. The Huskers also made 85.7 percent (12-14) of their free throws. NU matched the Badgers on the glass and won the turnover battle, 20-13, committing only five turnovers in the second half.

Wisconsin outshot NU from the floor, hitting 42 percent (21-50) from the floor, but just 3-of-15 from three-point range. The Badgers also struggled to hit just 7-of-13 free throws.

Moore shot Nebraska to a 37-26 halftime lead with 14 points to go along with two assists and three steals. Moore hit all three of her first-half three-point attempts in the opening 6:22 to help the Huskers run to a 19-5 lead.

But Wisconsin answered with a 17-5 surge of its own to cut NU's lead to 24-22 with 3:26 left. The Huskers answered with a 13-4 run to close the half, sparked by back-to-back baskets from Hailie Sample off assists from Moore, and back-to-back buckets from Rachel Theriot, before Tear'a Laudermill scored her only two of the half with 48 seconds left.

Moore then closed the half with a tough one-on-one finish under the rim against Stephen as time expired.

The Huskers hit 48.1 percent (13-27) of their shots in the half, including 5-of-12 three-pointers. NU also connected on 6-of-8 free throws. Nebraska outrebounded Wisconsin 16-14, led by nine boards from Cady. The Huskers also won the first-half turnover battle 10-8.

Wisconsin hit 45.8 percent (11-24) of its shots, but went 0-for-4 from three-point range. The Badgers were also just 4-of-8 at the free throw line in the half.

In the second half, Moore hit her fourth three-pointer to match NU's biggest lead at 14 points on the first possession of the second half, but the Badgers refused to quit. UW trimmed NU's margin to 46-42 on a Gulczynski three with 11:43 left, before Moore scored five straight, including her career-high matching fifth three-pointer. She then found Hooper for another three-pointer moments later to push the Husker margin back to 10 at 54-44. The lead was never less than double digits again, as NU led by 19 points before settling for the 18-point victory.

Tear'a Laudermill played a strong second half, snagging all four of her steals after halftime. She added four points and a block off the bench.

Nebraska concludes its four-game homestand on Saturday when they play host to No. 14 Purdue at the Devaney Center. Tip-off between the Huskers and Boilermakers is set for 1 p.m. with live national television coverage on CBS. Tickets are available now at Huskers.com.
