LINCOLN — Jordan Hooper made history. And then she got a heck of a lot of help from her friends.
The Husker forward surpassed 2,000 career points Thursday night with a 3-pointer in the second half. But the No. 18 Nebraska women’s basketball team rallied from a 14-point deficit for a stirring 88-85 overtime win thanks to Rachel Theriot and Emily Cady, who each scored their jersey numbers in points — 33 and 23.
