After Sydney Parrish hit a three-pointer to give the Hoosiers an early 6-4 lead, Nebraska never led again. The Hoosiers went on the road and decimated the Nebraska Cornhuskers 94-69 this afternoon in Lincoln. Four of Indiana's starters scored in double figures and shot 60 percent from the field and 60 percent from the three-point line. It was a dominant performance by the Hoosiers from start to finish.
Alexis Markowski was the lone Cornhusker starter in double figures with 21 points on 9-14 shooting. This afternoon was Nebraska's first Big Ten loss, while the win was Indiana's 12th consecutive victory.
Inside-Out was in Full Effect
Mackenzie Holmes continues to be one of the dominant inside forces in college basketball, scoring 22 points and grabbing six rebounds. When Nebraska decided to double the paint, Indiana's shooters were up to the task from the three-point arc.
Sharp-shooter Sara Scalia scored all her field goals on three-pointers, going 5 10 from behind the arc. She wasn't the only one who shot well from three. Sydney Parrish shot 6-7 from three-point range. Coach Moren told Chloe Moore-McNeil to get her shot again tonight. She responded with 16 points and hit both of her three-point attempts.
Experience is a good Teacher
Playing on the road is not easy, especially in the Big Ten. This experienced group has proven that they can adjust and thrive on the road. Nebraska is tough at home. Husker Nation is outstanding at supporting all its sports teams, including the women's basketball team.
Cornhusker fans were there en masse, but it did not matter. Indiana came out hot and dominated this game from start to finish. Coach Moren had a game plan for both offense and defense. Give the players credit; they executed well. Nebraska has shooters, but Indiana contested nearly every jump shot by the 'Huskers.
Indiana used its size on offense to get open looks on the perimeter and made them. The Hoosiers play Penn State ahead of its big matchup against Caitlin Clark and the #4 Iowa Hawkeyes.
