COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Rachel Theriot scored 26 points and Jordan Hooper had 24 to spark a late rally that pushed No. 17 Nebraska’s winning streak to seven with a 67-59 win over Ohio State on Thursday.

Ohio State went up 52-44 with 8:02 left but the Cornhuskers (20-5, 10-3 Big Ten) put together a 17-0 run, holding the Buckeyes scoreless (14-15, 4-9) until just 43 seconds remained. Then Theriot hit six free throws to ice the game.

Emily Cady and Hailie Sample pulled down 11 rebounds apiece for Nebraska, which also made 13 of 16 free throws. Ohio State was just 2 of 4 from the line.

Ameryst Alston tied her career-high with 31 points for Ohio State, which lost its fifth-straight game.

Coach Connie Yori, who fainted during the Wisconsin game on Sunday, was back on the bench.

Hooper, celebrating her 22nd birthday, had two 3-pointers during the winning surge.
