LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Rachel Theriot hit the go-ahead jumper with 1:39 remaining, and finished with 19 points, eight assists and six rebounds to help No. 18 Nebraska outlast Northwestern 66-65 in a Big 10 Conference opener for both teams Thursday night.

After surrendering an 11-0 run to trail 65-61 with 2:52 remaining, the Cornhuskers (11-2, 1-0) wouldn't go down as Tear'a Laudermill sank a 3-pointer. Theriot then drilled a jump-shot on the next possession to put Nebraska on top for the final margin.

Northwestern (10-4, 0-1) missed two potential go-ahead 3-pointers and committed a turnover in the final two minutes.

Laudermill scored 14 points and Jordan Hooper also had 14 with 10 rebounds. Emily Cady added 11 points and nine boards for the Cornhuskers.

Christen Inman led the Wildcats with 19 points and Nia Coffey had 16 with nine rebounds. Lauren Douglas scored 13 and Ashley Dearey had nine boards and seven assists.
