NORFOLK, Va. — Nebraska forward Jordan Hooper’s left ankle wasn’t swollen in the minutes after NU’s 53-45 loss to Duke. But she limped in the locker room, having rolled it after making a jumper and landing on the foot of a Blue Devil.
“It’s hurts when people touch it,” said Hooper, who crashed to the floor in pain with 7:56 left in the second half. “I think that’s from hitting the floor.”
