Huskers Fly By Golden Eagles


Kate Cain produced a double-double and added six blocked shots to lead six Huskers in double figures as Nebraska rolled to a 90-61 women’s basketball win over Oral Roberts in the Big Red’s season opener on Friday.

As a team, Nebraska hit 50 percent (33-66) of its shots from the field, including 7-of-15 (.467) three-pointers. Nebraska also converted on 17-of-28 free throws (.607) and out-rebounded Oral Roberts 58-40 on the night, while blocking 10 shots.

Nebraska returns to action at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Sunday, when the Huskers play host to Idaho State.
