Whitish Leads Huskers to 66-49 Win Over Kansas

Hannah Whitish scored 25 of her career-high 29 points in the second half and Nebraska played suffocating defense to flip Kansas 30 points on the scoreboard, as the Husker women’s basketball team rolled to a 66-49 win at historic Allen Fieldhouse on Wednesday night.

The victory was Nebraska’s first true road win since defeating Michigan in Ann Arbor on Jan. 24, 2016, as the Huskers improved to 6-3 overall while handing the Jayhawks their first loss of the season, snapping KU’s seven-game home winning streak.

The Huskers continue road action on Saturday when they travel to Drake. Tip-off with the defending Missouri Valley Conference champion Bulldogs at the Knapp Center in Des Moines is set for 2 p.m.
