LINCOLN, Neb. -- Jordan Hooper scored 18 points and Rachel Theriot had nine with 12 assists as No. 22 Nebraska rolled past No. 24 Michigan State 76-56 Saturday.

The Cornhuskers (17-5, 7-3 Big Ten) shot 46.8 percent from the field and outrebounded Michigan State 38-31. Tear'a Laudermill scored 15 points and Emily Cady had 13 with nine boards and five assists.

Michigan State (16-8, 8-3) was held to 22-of-56 shooting (39.3 percent). Aerial Powers paced the Spartans with 17 points and seven rebounds.

The Spartans jumped out to a 14-6 lead six minutes in, but Nebraska stormed ahead with a 22-0 surge sparked by a layup, three-point play and a jumper by Cady. Branndais Agee ended the Spartans' nearly 10-minute scoring drought with two straight jumpers, but the Cornhuskers rolled to a 40-20 halftime advantage.

Nebraska coasted in the second half, as Michigan State couldn't pull closer than 17.
