LINCOLN — Coach Connie Yori's sudden, “scary” collapse in the second half of a Nebraska women's basketball game Sunday turned the Huskers' sixth straight win into a footnote.

Shortly after senior forward Jordan Hooper tied NU's game with Indiana 50-50 with 12:15 to go, a cheering Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd quickly went silent as fans saw Yori flat on her back in Nebraska's coaching box. Paramedics briefly attended to Yori, who sat up, then stood up, and finally walked out the main arena under her own power back to the training room. Just before No. 21 Nebraska finished off the Hoosiers 76-61, she left in an ambulance for an evaluation at a local hospital.
