COLLEGE STATION, Texas — As Chattanooga splashed home 10 3-pointers in Nebraska’s first-round NCAA tournament game, the temptation was surely there for NU to try to match those buckets. It’s a bait the Huskers took in last year’s 57-49 NCAA tournament loss to Kansas, when they missed 18 of 19 3-point attempts.
Not Saturday. Nebraska stuck to its game plan, attacking the Lady Mocs’ frontcourt with drives into the lanes and lobs over their post players. It helped NU build an 18-1 advantage at the foul line.
