Moore had eight assists for the Cornhuskers (21-6, 11-3 Big Ten),

who kept their hopes alive of sharing the conference


Nebraska’s last two conference games are at Wisconsin on

Thursday and at home next Sunday against No. 7 Penn State, which

owns at least a share of the Big Ten title.

Samantha Logic led the Hawkeyes (17-11, 6-8) with 12 points. She

scored the game’s first basket, but that was Iowa’s only lead and

the Huskers went on to lead 29-20 at halftime.

Iowa, which has lost six of its last seven, fell to 7-2 against

ranked teams this season. The Hawkeyes’ other loss in that category

was to Penn State.
