Panther women outmuscled by #1 seed Nebraska

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Kelsey Griffin had 22 points and nine rebounds to lead No. 1 seed Nebraska to an 83-44 over 16th-seeded Northern Iowa in the first round of the NCAA women's tournament on Sunday.

Dominique Kelley added 11 points for the Cornhuskers (31-1), the top-seeded team in the Kansas City regional.

Lizzie Boeck had 10 points and eight rebounds for Northern Iowa (17-16), one day after the Panthers men's team busted brackets across the country by beating No. 1 Kansas in the second round of the tournament.

After a shaky start, the Huskers bounced back from a loss to Texas A&M in the Big 12 tournament semifinals to show that they are still a team to be reckoned with.

Nebraska forced 17 turnovers and outscored the Panthers 22-7 in the first nine minutes of the second half to blow the game open.
