Husker Women Lose to Rutgers in Big Ten Tourney

Natalie Romeo tied her own Big Ten Tournament record by knocking down seven three-pointers, but it wasn’t enough as the Huskers suffered a 66-63 loss to Rutgers Thursday night.

Romeo finished with a game-high 23 points.

But, Nebraska’s Jessica Shepard was slowed by a stress reaction in her foot that kept her out of practice the last three days.  The league’s freshman of the year scored just four points on 1-for-9 shooting.
