By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 02/08/2019 09:20 AM
(Lincoln)- The Nebraska women led 51-49 with four minutes left, but Michigan made enough plays down the stretch to escape with a 67-61 win over the Huskers on Thursday night.

The loss dropped Nebraska to 5-7 in the Big Ten and 10-13 overall, while the Wolverines improved to 15-9 and 6-6 in the conference by splitting the season series with the Huskers.

In a low-scoring fourth quarter, Nebraska held Michigan without a field goal for the first 7:35 of the period, but trailed 53-51 after a pair of Wolverine free throws with 2:33 left.

The Wolverines hit nine free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

Hannah Whitish led the Huskers with 13 points in the game, including 3-of-7 threes.
