After finishing 0-2 in the South Point Shootout, losing to Washington State and Virginia, the Nebraska women’s basketball team travels to Virginia Tech Thursday for an 8 p.m. tip.
Nebraska cut Washington State’s lead to 11 points with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the Huskers couldn’t come back. The Cougars shot 55 percent from the floor and 62 percent from the three in the first half.
Junior guard Jasmine Cincore, who was the Huskers’ only player besides sophomore forward Jessica Shepard to make at least three fields goals in the second game in the South Point Shootout, elaborated on Wood’s assessment of the Huskers’ recent play.
The Hokies are led by senior forward Sidney Cook and sophomore guard Chanette Hicks, who average 14 and 19 points per game, respectively.
