LINCOLN, Neb. — Emily Cady scored 24 points to match her career high and No. 23 Nebraska upset eighth-ranked Ohio State 71-57, the Buckeyes’ second loss in three games, on Sunday.
The Cornhuskers (21-7, 10-6 Big Ten) bounced back from a 20-point loss at Michigan State for only their second win in six games. The Buckeyes (24-5, 11-5) lost for the fifth time in eight conference road games.
Cady had her best game since scoring 24 in the Huskers’ 82-68 loss at Ohio State on Jan. 19. The freshman forward made 9 of 16 shots from the floor after scoring just four points against the Spartans on Thursday.
Brandi Jeffery and Rebecca Woodberry scored eight apiece for Nebraska. The Huskers’ season scoring leaders, Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore, combined for only 16 points.
Samantha Prahalis, coming off a school-record 42-point game against Minnesota on Thursday, led the Buckeyes with 18 points. Tayler Hill added 16.
