LINCOLN — Twelve missed layups. Several passes to cameramen and fans. Wild 3-pointers hitting nothing but air or backboard. Players regarding the opposing defense as if it were an alien artifact. A coach spinning on one heel, running her hands over her face, ready to chew the scenery out of frustration.
In a yuckfest of 79 missed shots and 50 combined turnovers, the Nebraska women’s basketball team lost 62-52 at home to Illinois Thursday night.
