Hannah Whitish scored 12 points on four three-pointers to lead four Huskers in double figures, as Nebraska battled to a 68-46 women’s basketball win over Alabama A&M on Wednesday afternoon in the regular-season opener at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
Nigeria Jones led the Bulldogs with 16 points, including 14 in the second half. Fellow guard Deshawna Harper added 15 points including a pair of threes. The opener was also special for A&M Head Coach Margaret Richards. She played four season for the Cornhuskers and graduated from there in the early 2000s.
