Cold Shooting Dooms Husker Women

 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Carmen Reynolds matched her season high
with 16 points and Michigan capitalized on Nebraska's abysmal
shooting to upset the 13th-ranked Cornhuskers 63-52 on Thursday

     Michigan (18-7, 7-5 Big Ten) led 32-12 at half after going on a
26-3 run and holding the Huskers without a field goal for just over
14 minutes.

     The 12 first-half points were the fewest by a Top 25 team
against an unranked opponent since then-No. 9 California scored 11
against Oregon State in February 2008, according to STATS LLC.

     Nebraska (19-4, 8-3) shot 26 percent but looked like it would
make a game of it late. Michigan was up by 27 points early in the
second half, but a spate of turnovers allowed the Huskers to cut it
to eight with 2:01 left.

     Courtney Boylan added 14 points, Rachel Sheffer 13 and Nya
Jordan 11 for Michigan. Lindsey Moore had 23 points for Nebraska.
