LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Jordan Hooper scored a game-high 33 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as No. 15 Nebraska toppled Utah State 95-75 on Sunday.

Hooper shot 11 of 16 from the floor (68.8 percent), made 11 from the free throw line, and clocked her first career game without a 3-point shot attempt. Emily Cady finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Cornhuskers (7-2).

Both teams made eight 3-pointers, and made a comparable number of baskets _ Nebraska made 28 while the Aggies finished with 30. The difference in the contest came at the free throw line, where the Cornhuskers poured in 31 points while Utah State (5-3) scored just seven.

The Aggies attempted 25 more shots from the floor than Nebraska and Makenlee Williams led the team with 21 points.

Nebraska won six straight before losing two contests in a row, to Washington State and No. 18 UNC.
