MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Tear'a Laudermill scored 21 points and made a career-high five 3-pointers Wednesday night as No. 22 Nebraska escaped Wisconsin 71-70 in overtime.

Emily Cady made 1 of 2 free throws to put Nebraska ahead and conclude the game's scoring with 1:02 left in overtime.

Wisconsin and Nebraska each went scoreless on their next possessions and Wisconsin called timeout to set up a final play with 8 seconds to go. Cady stole Jacki Gulczynski's pass to Michala Johnson with 2 seconds left to seal the win for the Cornhuskers (16-5, 6-3 Big Ten).

Cady had 10 points and 11 rebounds while Rachel Theriot had 11 points and 11 assists for Nebraska.

Johnson had 24 points to lead Wisconsin (10-12, 3-7).

The Badgers trailed 70-66 when Johnson and Taylor Wurtz scored back-to-back layups to pull Wisconsin even at 70. Wurtz added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Morgan Paige scored 11.
