Emily Cady had the ninth double-double of her career, 19 points and 11 rebounds, to lead Nebraska to 62-48 victory over Alabama Monday.
Sophomore point guard Rachel Theriot added 17 points and five assists.
Alabama was able to slow All-American Jordan Hooper to only eight points, but she still pulled down 13 rebounds.
Nebraska (2-0), ranked 15th in AP poll, opened with a Cady jumper to take the lead. However Alabama (0-2) kept pace with the Cornhuskers, taking a 24-23 lead on a Briana Hutchen jumper with 3:29 left in the first period. Theriot made two free throws to regain the lead. Nebraska never trailed again, opening a 29-24 advantage at the half.
A Theriot layup with 15:03 remaining in the final period stretched the lead to 39-28. Alabama closed to within six with 11:51 remaining, but that was as close as the Crimson Tide could get.
BEST OF MAXIM
Alabama's Nick Saban doesn't want his players to be in a celebratory mood this week. It's too soon for relief, too.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide's coach prefers them to focus on what it felt like to physically dominate in the second half against No. 18 LSU and turn a tight game into a 38-17 win.
That is how he wants Alabama to play.

C.J. Mosley racked up tackles, deflected a couple of passes and smoothly handed off on a fake punt that helped get Alabama rolling.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide's All-America linebacker came up big in any number of different ways in Saturday night's 38-17 win over No. 18 LSU.
Really, what else is new? Mosley has been the leader and star of one of the nation's best defenses...
Nick Saban simply can’t be beat.
Saturday, Saban and his Crimson Tide won their toughest (supposedly) game of the season, pounding LSU for a 38-17 victory. For the fans of teams that need Alabama to lose, things aren’t looking up. The Tide appear to be getting stronger as the season goes on, thanks mostly to their fierce leader, Nick Saban.
Southeastern Conference football has always been of utmost importance to each school's fans and to the region itself, but the television ratings from the SEC on CBS brand are continuing to show a growing interest in the South's best sporting product.
Last Saturday's primetime game between LSU and Alabama on CBS garnered an average national household rating/share of...
Nike co-founder and big-time Ducks fan Phil Knight was dressed from head to toe in Alabama gear at the Crimson Tide's game against LSU.
The 2013 college football regular season is rapidly coming to an end which means teams begin to see where they stand in terms of conference and national rankings. At this point in the season teams know whether or not they are a legitimate national title contender or even a contender in their own conference. The season outlook for the remainder of the 2013 season for the two-time...
Sometimes your team wins. Sometimes your team loses. Even when your team loses, there is nothing wrong with dancing! Just ask this (what seems like an) LSU Tiger fan. He was showing off some moves during the loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Sometimes you gotta dance the pain away. HT The Big Lead
Alabama's Nick Saban doesn't want his players to be in a celebratory mood this week after they impressively passed one of their final tests toward an undefeated regular season.
It also might be difficult to convince his team that it'll get much of a challenge from Mississippi State.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide haven't allowed more than 10 points during their five...
Covering Dixie Like Mildew - It's the SEC's world. Deal with it.
There's a possibility, but no chance.
Nathan Rush gives "10 Reasons Why Nick Saban Will Be the Next Coach At Texas." Note: If you're using The Longhorn Network as a reason why Saban would leave 'Bama for Texas, you've already lost your argument. (Athlon Sports)
Although he may never have heard of Jerry Duncan, Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio would like to be like Jerry. Not in stature. Too late for that. Duncan, recruited to Alabama in the early 1960s as a running back, was transformed into an offensive tackle, like Kouandjio. Except Duncan was perhaps 5-11, 180.
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron wanted to play it down. Crimson Tide wide receiver Kevin Norwood said he had never seen his coach so excited. That coach, Nick Saban, said it was all about the team. One of the Alabama sportswriters dubbed it Bama’s “Hallmark moment.”
Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley makes the Crimson Tide coaches’ Player of the Week list almost every week for defense. Mosley plays on most Bama kicking teams, too, but rarely is cited as a special teams player of the week. He probably thought this would be the week. But Noooo!
Alabama hosted north of 100 elite prospects on Saturday with LSU in town and while it didn't lead to any commitments, it put the Crimson Tide in position to land priority prospects down the road.
Rashaan Evans got back to Tuscaloosa Saturday and he had nothing but praise for the Crimson Tide. Get the latest on the five-star out of Auburn, Ala. here...
