IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Lindsey Moore had 22 points and nine assists and Jordan Hooper added 17 points as No. 19 Nebraska rallied to beat Iowa 77-72 on Sunday. The Cornhuskers (14-1, 3-0 Big Ten) trailed by as many as eight points before a late 12-2 run led to their eighth straight win. Moore gave the Huskers a 61-60 lead with a 3-pointer, and Brandi Jeffery’s 3 made it 70-62 with 3:04 left. The Hawkeyes closed within 73-70 with 1:21 to go, but Jeffery forced a tie-up with Iowa’s Kamille Wahlin to give the ball back to Nebraska. Jaime Printy scored 27 points and Morgan Johnson had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (10-7, 2-2), who were just 2 of 16 from 3-point range.
