LINCOLN — First, Nebraska sophomore forward Emily Cady had to run the floor with a tissue stuck up her nostril to stop a bleeding nose. Later, she fell into the knee of a cameraman underneath the basket.
Those were about the only hard knocks the Nebraska women's basketball team suffered Sunday. Everything else: Big smiles and big cheers from the season's largest crowd. The Huskers extended their winning streak to four in a 80-56 rout of slumping Minnesota.
