Huskers Fall in OT to No. 23 Michigan
Lincoln - In a game that featured a first-half offensive explosion by both teams and a second-half knock-down, drag-out defensive struggle, the upstart Nebraska women's basketball team gave No. 23 Michigan all it could handle but the Wolverines escaped from Pinnacle Bank Arena with a 69-64 overtime win on Saturday night.

The Huskers (12-6, 3-2 Big Ten) led 62-59 before Deja Church's three-point attempt with 0.7 seconds left in the corner was blocked by Nebraska's Nicea Eliely. However, Eliely, who blocked the shot on top of the ball with her entire hand and forearm, was called for a foul on the block, and Church sank all three free throws to send the game to overtime.

Sophomore forward Grace Mitchell gave Nebraska a 64-62 lead on her driving layup with 4:07 left, but the Huskers were shut out the rest of the way, as the Wolverines improved to 15-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten.

A comparison I found elsewhere: :Redface:

Amazingly close in a lot of criteria. Slight Edge - Michgan. Heart & Grit - Edge Huskers!
