LINCOLN, Neb. -- Jordan Hooper nearly equaled her double-overtime performance against Northern Arizona last season, scoring 27 points Friday night as No. 15 Nebraska defeated the Lumberjacks 77-55.

Hooper, who had 32 points in last season's 97-88 win over Northern Arizona, hit 9-of-14 shots -- including 5-of-8 3-pointers -- and all four of her free-throw attempts Friday. Emily Cady added 13 points, seven rebounds and four steals for the Cornhuskers (3-0), while Lindsey Moore had 10 points and nine assists.

The Lumberjacks (0-3), who are missing two returning starters because of injuries, got 16 points from Tyler Stephens-Jenkins and 13 from Aubrey Davis. Friday's game marked the 1,000th in Northern Arizona women's basketball school history after the program began in 1974.

Nebraska shot 50 percent (11 of 22) from 3-point range and 41 percent overall. The Lumberjacks hit 41.8 percent of their shots but had just three free-throw attempts.
