LINCOLN — Eighteenth-ranked Nebraska put together its best offensive half of the season Sunday while steamrolling Oral Roberts 89-53 in its final game before the start of Big Ten play.

The Husker women (10-2) led 62-25 at halftime, setting a first-half scoring record and topping their previous single-half point total this season by 10. NU's first half exceeded the 59-point first half against InterAmerican in 1993-94 and Washington State in 2009-10, and ranks as the fifth-highest point total for any half in school history. The record of 68 came in the second half against Howard in 1992.
