LINCOLN — There's a difference, Nebraska women's basketball coach Connie Yori said Saturday night, between playing defense with the hope the opponent misses shots and playing defense to force missed shots.

The 10th-ranked Huskers settled too much for the first kind of defense and wound up with their first loss — an upset, no less — in Pinnacle Bank Arena. Washington State (4-4) beat NU 76-72 and led for all but 45 seconds of the game. Two large Nebraska comebacks — one in each half — weren't enough to overcome the Cougars hitting 12 3-pointers and scoring 26 points off Husker turnovers.
